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 SizedNewborn to 18 months – body panel 16 inches wide (at the widest point) and 16 inches tall, not including the waistband.

Inbetween Baby/Toddler Sized12 months to 2 years – body panel 17 inches wide (at the widest point) and 17 inches tall, not including the waistband.

Toddler Sized18 months to 3 years–  body panel 18 inches wide (at the widest point) and 18 inches tall, not including the waistband.

Inbetween Toddler/Preschool Sized2.5 years – 4 years – body panel 19 inches wide (at the widest point) and 19 inches tall, not including the waistband.

Preschool Sized3 years – 5 years – body panel 20 inches wide (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.

All sizes are approximate and depend on the height and centile of the child.
