To choose the right carrier for your needs,
you need to know the features of each.
Below is a good overview and comparison between the two styles of carriers.
Designed for front and back carry,
although primarily made for back carrying.
Adjustable width and heigth in panel
Usable from the time your baby can sit unassisted
up to 25 kg
Great for high back carries, easy quick ups
and maternity wearing(no waistband)
Soft Structured Carrier (SSC)
Designed for both front and back carry,
although you can not achieve the same high back carry as in the onbuhimo, due to the longer straps.
Adjustable height in panel and adjustable width in waistband
Usable from approximately 3,5 kg to 25 kg
Great for carrying your child from the beginning
and long walks due to the larger
weight distribution from the waistband.
