NOTE: BEFORE YOU BUY A BABY CARRIER, BE SURE THAT YOUR CARRIER SUPPORTS YOUR BABY’S THIGHS FROM THE HIP TO THE KNEE. Ideally the knees are slightly higher than the hips for optimal join support. Also, it’s important to keep baby facing your body AND AVOID ALL OUTWARD FACING CARRIERS. Along with giving your baby something/someone to rest onto, this also keeps your baby less stimulated and more calm. IDEALLY CARRYING YOUR BABY (with good alignment) WILL OFFER A BETTER WORKOUT AND MOVEMENT FOR YOU AND YOUR BABY.
