Many carriers are sold as fitting from newborn all the way through to toddlerhood. However, some of the adjustments required to truly get this amount of flexibility out of a carrier aren’t always obvious or well explained in manuals.
In this video I demonstrate how to “shorten” the back panel on a carrier by simply sitting baby deeper into the carrier. This is one of the easiest adjustments to make and one that often makes a huge difference to how well a carrier fits a smaller baby.
I demonstrate using the Ergo Omni 360 because a) this is a very popular carrier, but also because b) it has a very long back panel so does often need shortening using this method!! But the same method will work with essentially any buckle carrier.
