What to do if the baby carrier doesn’t feel right?

May 31, 2018

Your toddler subconsciously controls the weight you carry, so it is even more important that the backpack feels right. These are the most common problems.

My shoulders are sore

Tighten up the hip belt and release shoulder straps a bit, so more weight rests on your hips.

The carrier pulls me backwards

Tighten up the load lifters. If the backpack still pulls, then slightly tighten up the shoulder straps.

The carrier bumps my bottom

Release the sternum strap. It should not be tight.
