Soft structured carrier or SSC for short, appears to be similar and the principle of using them are about the same. However, some differences in the feature made the way of using the carrier to differ from one to the other. To ensure the optimal comfort, it is important to refer to the instruction of the specific brand of carrier. You can also check out the video instruction below, or arrange a consultation session with us. 

 

A SSC that is age (and height) appropriate for the baby is important to ensure that the baby's weight are well supported. The width of the carrier should ideally be able to support the leg from knee-to-knee so that baby remain in a spread squat position, to ensure a healthy hip development. A age (and height) appropriate carrier also allow the baby's weight to be better distributed, for parents to feel more comfortable while babywearing your little ones.

Parent Facing Front Carry

Parent facing front carries are generally recommended in most situation. This allow more face to face interaction of the parents with the baby.

Forward Facing Front Carry

Forward facing carry can only be considered when baby is have good neck control AND able to sit upright unsupported (usually 6 months) to 12 months old. 

We strongly recommend parents to keep a watchful eyes on the baby when carrying baby in this manner, watching out for signs of over stimulation. When there is any signs of over stimulation, parents should change the carry to parent facing front carry again. 

Back Carry

Back carry can be considered when baby have good neck control AND able to sit upright unsupported. This usually comes around 6 months old. 

We recommend to have another adult to assist getting the baby on the back for a few times, so as the baby and the parent can get used to the feeling of baby on the back. Only after both the baby and parent are comfortable, then only we learn to transfer the baby from the front to the back, ideally with another adult acting as a spotter to provide assistance when needed.
