From, and up to what age should you use a hiking baby carrier?
It is possible to bring along a baby for a walk from a very early age. However, before children are able to walk on the paths with their own legs, they will need to be carried. The question is what type of baby carrier should you use. Among the hiking equipment selected by Glisshop, you will easily find the one that is the most comfortable for your baby as well as yourself. Around 6 to 9 months, it is necessary to use a front carrier. It can be an anatomical baby carrier model, designed to adapt perfectly to the anatomy of new-borns who cannot stand straight yet. It can be a sling as well. In any case, their head and back are maintained in an appropriate posture for their stage of development and they can let themselves be swayed and fall asleep at your touch. Carrying a baby in a hiking baby carrier is only suitable when the baby is able to sit with a straight back. There are some hiking carriers capable of carrying children up to 22kg (around 3.46st), corresponding to an age of around 6. Be aware to carefully consider weight when choosing a baby carrier. It is not recommended to carry a load of more than 20 % your own body weight.
