Babywearing Tip: the Hip Carry

Each day during International Babywearing Week (IBW), we’ll be posting babywearing tips from our friends at local Babyearing International (BWI) Chapters.

Today’s tip comes to you courtesy of BWI of Southern Maryland:

If you are doing a Hip Carry in an Ergobaby Carrier and you are finding that the shoulder strap digs into your neck, try clipping the chestbelt.  You may need to move it around to get it to clip comfortably, but clipping it can pull the strap away from your neck and make for a very comfortable Hip Carry.

Babywearing International Inc. is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote babywearing as a universally accepted practice. BWI’s Volunteer Babywearing Educators across the country provide free meetings and outreach in their local communities, sharing their knowledge and experience to ensure that babies are worn safely and comfortably.
