When we carry the baby behind, the weight is better distributed by our center of gravity. Consequently, the weight distribution is more ergonomic. If you have back pain when carrying your baby in front, we recommend you try baby backpacks on the back. You will not notice the weight of the baby!

With the baby carriers on the back support, the babies are more entertained. They provide a wider field of vision. If your baby gets overwhelmed by being carried in front of him, try changing the baby’s position.

In addition, carrying on the back allows us to do activities such as cooking, doing housework, etc., that we cannot do with the baby in front of us.

Traveling will be more comfortable and practical with a back baby carrier, while your baby or child sleeps comfortably.

Recommendations for back baby carriers

Choosing the right baby carrier that doesn’t hurt your back

The backpack baby carrier, due to its simplicity of use and speed when placing it. Choose the most suitable ergonomic baby carrier for the age and characteristics of your baby.

The backpack strap adjustments allow us to quickly and safely loosen and adjust the strap, to easily pass the baby backwards.

When you slide the carrier onto your back, make sure your baby is centered and the carrier panel still reaches from knee to knee. Use your fingers to measure if there is space between the knee and the panel of the backpack. You can reach inside the panel to reposition the baby if necessary.

If the baby falls asleep in the back carrier, it is important that it has a hood that you can easily put on. To do this, it must have a design that allows you to reach back to grab the end and fasten it to the strap.

It is also essential that the panel of the backpack or the hood are adjustable, so that regardless of the height of the baby, the head is well supported when sleeping.

The  LÍLLÉbaby 3-in-1 Ergonomic CarryOn are also ideal baby carriers to use on the back. With the straps we can help ourselves to move the baby forward, or in older children to raise the panel of the backpack towards our shoulders. We can also reinforce the seat to better distribute the weight of the baby on our body, and finish the knot with different finishes.
