Babywearing: The “M”

Continuing on last Thursday’s post about “Knee-to-Knee“, I wanted to discuss the important of baby’s leg and hip positioning when leg’s out in a carrier. Firstly, the carrier should ALWAYS go “knee-to-knee“. If it does not, it is not adequately supporting your little one’s hips. The ideal position is the “M” position. The blue arrows show Liam’s legs, folded over […]

Why We Wear #2

Babywearing: Knee-to-knee

When babywearing, position is REALLY important. Many Soft Structured Carriers (SSCs) come with “infant inserts” that you use until your new bundle of joy is “big enough”. But what exactly is “big enough”? For a legs out position, “big enough” is when the carrier goes “knee-to-knee”. Knee-to-knee is when their legs not only poke out of the carrier, but that […]
