Our Onbuhimo really shines for back carries, babies LOVE the peekaboo view. It is excellent for introducing back carry as baby is able to really take in the same sights as the wearer. Baby can also be worn on the front, heart to heart. Keep in mind that the unique design of the onbuhimo does not provide enough tension or support across new little necks and shoulders, so baby needs to have met both size (15lbs.) and sitting independently milestones to use it safely.
