Outward facing carrier

(6 Posts)

We're looking for a carrier to use with DS where he can be facing outwards as he much prefers this. He is 5 months old so one that could be used now or as soon as possible is ideal. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks in advance thanks

Ergo, can use now facing out and then he can go on your back when he is older. DS is 2 and I am using mine much more now he goes on my back. Particularly good when travelling and using tube etc when you don't want to be lugging a pushchair up stairs.

careful, standard ergo is not suitable for facing out but the new ergo 360 is. The other option is a beco Gemini. Both will support baby knee-to-knee but forward facing still forces am awkward curve in the spine so really only for shorter periods of time.

Thanks both, that's really useful. [Thanks]

I have both the Ergo and the Beco Gemini, I much prefer the Beco.

The new ErgoBaby 360 lets your baby face outward. The BabyBjorn is very popular with our parents -- outward facing as well.
