Baby carriers in many shapes and colours!
The advantage of a baby carrier is that you can quickly and easily start carrying your child. Of course, you should always be aware that your child
- has free airways
- isn't too hot
- is resting in a frog position, with support from knee to knee
This is always the case when carrying your baby. Whether you use a wrap or a carrier.
A carrier is very easy to put on, and depending on which carrier you choose, it can be used from newborn to toddler.
This type of carrier typically consists of a waist belt and shoulder straps. A full buckle has snap buckles in both the waist belt and shoulder straps. No prior carrying experience is required. Simply adjust the length of the shoulder straps and belt, click the buckles and you and baby are on your way.
Half buckle - snap buckle in waist belt only
Some people find the click buckle on the back annoying and hard to reach. If you still want a click buckle in the waist belt, the solution may be a half buckle a baby carrier. This type of carrier is best described as half-carrier/half-wrap, as there is still a click buckle on the waist belt, but the shoulder straps are long wrap straps without buckles.
Other half/half carriers
The advantage of a half/half carrier is that your child's seating comfort does not depend solely on your wrapping skills. You don't have to wrap the child from scratch, as the seat is already pre-made. On the other hand, you still get the closeness of carrying your child, which a wrap offers.
A mei tai has the character of a wrap with built-in modern comfort. The harness has no click buckles, but padding in both the wrap straps and waist belt.
A wrap tai has no padding, but the shoulder straps can be spread over the shoulders and the back of the child for better support and comfort. Some mei tais have the same feature in the shoulder straps, while being padded. The terms are therefore often used interchangeably.
Carrier for back carrying only
A onbuhimo is a baby carrier without a waist belt and designed primarily for back carrying. Therefore, it cannot be used for newborns, but only from the time the child can sit unaided. The entire weight of the child must be supported by your shoulders. In return, you are free from the pressure on your stomach. An onbuhimo is quick to put on and take off, and ideal when you need to look after an active toddler. In our range, the onbuhimo has snap buckles in the shoulder straps.
