Carry every which way with KahuBaby! 4 carrying positions means options for you and your child. Your favourite carrying position will depend on your child’s developmental stage, and what works best for your family at that time.

Front carry, facing parent/carer – newborn until walking age

In a KahuBaby Carrier, your child learns about the world from a safe place, and from your height. Your child learns language and a myriad of social cues when facing into you, and is still able to look around and take in the scenery.

Hip carry – 4 months +

Carrying an older baby or toddler on your hip is instinctive, and as humans we’ve been doing it for millennia. You’ll find your baby gets a good view from your hip, and with KahuBaby your arms are both free to get stuff done.

Front carry, facing outwards – 5 months +

We know from working with parents and carers, that at times some children are happier facing outwards while being carried. We recommend carrying your child in this position for 20-30 minutes at a time, only while your child is awake, and no younger than 5 months of age.

Back carry – 6 months +

If you have an older baby or a toddler, you may find it more comfortable to carry your child on your back. With KahuBaby, you can do this own your own, without assistance from another adult. We’ve included step-by-step instructions with your KahuBaby Carrier, and you can find our instructions here too. We recommend that your baby is sitting unassisted before carrying him/her on your back.
