Enjoy total freedom = carry your baby in different positions

A baby carrier is often listed as a necessary piece of baby gear for most parent’s. It’s a great way to bond with your child while having your hands free. Some baby carriers even offer the possibility to carry in different positions. Allowing you to do what you want to, at the same time as your baby sees the world from different point of views.

What are the carrying positions?

When can I start carrying my baby?

Most baby carriers are made for carrying babies from newborn and up to 2-3 years of age. Baby carriers for older babies are often versatile and grows with the baby by offering the possibility to carry in different positions.

Parent facing position

For children under five months

During the baby’s first months, the little one is exploring the world. All the impressions, sights and sounds can be overwhelming. That’s why it’s extra important to provide comfort, security and care as a parent. Newborns and babies younger than five months should therefore always be carried facing inwards or in a parent facing position. In that way, the baby is always able to bond with you, follow your every move and learn about the world around.

Forward facing position 

From six months and up

Older babies will actively seek ways to see the world by tossing and turning when carrying. These are clues that he or she wants to be forward facing in the baby carrier to be able to follow whats happening around. We recommend not to start carrying the baby forward facing before he or she is about six months old, when the baby is more steady and and has better control of the head and neck. 

Back carrying 

From six months and up

Going out hiking with the baby and baby carrier? To carry the baby on the back is a good way to get good ergonomic support during those long walks together. The weight is more evenly distributed when carrying in this position – it’s just like carrying heavy stuff in a backpack. It’s safe to back carry when the baby is about six months old and can sit independently.

Hip carrying 

From six months and up

Hip carrying is a great way to carry your small one when he or she is older than six months. It’s most suitable for babies that want to move and go up and down from the baby carrier a lot, while still being close to you. This way of carrying is also great for parents with back problems. The weight is distributed evenly and there’s little pressure on the back and spine. With a Hip Seat you also get extra support while carrying.
