The principle in choosing the right baby carrier for your baby is to first recognize the stages of baby development. At less than 5 months of age, babies are usually not strong enough to support their own neck in a sitting position and it is also important to keep the head, back and buttocks aligned so that the baby can support his head more firmly. Therefore, you must choose a baby carrier that is sturdy and can support the head to support a good baby position. Also pay attention to the position of the legs so that there is enough room for the baby to straddle (like a frog position) and bend the knees. For those aged less than 6 months, it is recommended to use a baby carrier from the front and a back carrier if they are more than 6 months old. Also pay attention to the instructions and specifications on each brand of baby carrier to see the maximum age and weight that can be accommodated. If you notice that your baby is uncomfortable or seems to have difficulty balancing his head and body in the carrier, it is best not to continue / change to another type.
