You’ll want the top of the Onbuhimo panel to be at shoulder height, it will fold on itself a bit when baby goes arms out. This provides a great basis of support and keeps their heavy upper body close to your center of gravity. If it is too low, you may need to begin the carry again taking special care to get the panel to underarm height or ideally even a touch higher. If starting from a seat, place baby’s bottom a bit closer to the drawstring or bottom of the panel. You’ll want to allow 3-4” to tuck between your bodies at the longest point of the panel.
