'Is it better to Back Carry or Front Carry your Baby?'
The answer is either! It really comes down to what you want out of your Carrier. Both styles of carrying offer valuable benefits, so let's figure out which one suits you.
For a front carry (chest-to-chest) it is recommend that baby be both 4 months and 5kgs. We recommend you only attempt a back carry with a baby who is older than 5 months and can sit unassisted with confident head and neck control. For smaller babes, we suggest a chest-to-chest carry with a Size Clip.

Easy to reach
Even though a back carry may be a little more advanced, we provide detailed tutorials and demos which you can find on our socials and website (we've even included the video above to make it that much easier for you!) We also provide one-on-one video consultations where one of our trained babywearing educators can give you the personal guidance you need. With all the extra help we offer there's no reason to not give a back carry a try, and here's why...
Have complete front freedom with a back carry. For the Mama's on-the-go, you may find a back carry the perfect carry for bending, carrying, adventures and house chores.
For the bigger busted Mama's, staying cool in the Summer is a must! Try back carrying to keep the heat off your chest on those warmer days.
