Much of baby literature online and offline is centered around mothers, and dad's are not necessarily neglected, but not usually a major part of baby-raising discussions. This includes getting baby stuff, too.
As you look around on the internet for baby clothes, bottles, diapers, accessories, or baby carriers, there's tons of pictures of women with babies, but a handful of men with babies. More with mom and dad and baby.
The need of men and women also make a difference in how things are made. Women tend to need more stuff than men do. Not all of them, but enough of them. Babies also require a lot of stuff, so no matter who's got baby, they're going to need that stuff.
Dad's are looking for simplicity. It's how they're wired. When dad's need a baby carrier, they'll likely look for the simplest design, with simple or plain patterns, little to no frills, and just enough space for baby and some essentials.
Actually, a perfect baby carrier for dad would be a baby sling. He can still carry a diaper bag if necessary, but one simple sling to carry baby is ideal. A one-piece baby sling is even better. No fuss, no muss.
So, if you're a dad, or thinking about getting dad a baby carrier, make sure it's simple and straightforward. Dad will love you for it!
