What size baby carrier do I need?
Soft structured carriers (full buckles, half buckles, meh dai and onbuhimo) are sized according to the panel that supports baby and it is usually quoted as a ‘knee to knee’ measurement.
|Baby Sized –||body panel 16 inches at the widest point and 16 inches tall, not including the waistband.|
|Toddler Sized –||body panel 18 inches at the widest point and 18 inches tall, not including the waistband.|
|Preschool Sized –||body panel 20 inches at the widest point and 20 inches tall, not including the waistband.|
Our carrier panels taper towards the centre of the panel so the waistband can be rolled over to shorten the height of the panel which in turn reduces the width of the panel where baby sits in the carrier.
