Things to Remember When Shopping for a Back Friendly Baby Carrier

Different Placement

Sometimes chronic back pain can’t be ignored. Instead of sacrificing baby bonding time, parents should opt to use one of the other recommended carry positions. 
Many types of slings, pouches, and wraps accommodate parents with back problems. These types of baby carriers can be worn with the baby resting most of their weight on your shoulder and hip.

Wider Straps

Wider straps help to disperse the weight more evenly throughout your body. The padding in the straps should be firm and comfortable against your shoulder. This will help to relieve some of the tension in your shoulder.

Lower Lumbar Straps:

There are many buckle carriers that are coming out with additional straps that go across your lower back. The purpose of these thick, wide, padded straps is to help minimize the weight going to the lower lumbar region. It allows for more support and a better weight distribution.
