One of the recurring questions that babywearing parents ask me is: when and why change from baby size to young child size?
First of all, the baby and toddler sizes can both support a weight of 45lbs. They have even been tested with a weight above 135 lbs, so it's not a question of weight... rather of ergonomics!
The advantages of carrying, particularly in certain situations, do not need additional arguments regarding the idea of continuing to carry even if your last one has started walking!
BEFORE STARTING THE SIZE CHANGE
Before moving from baby size to young child size, one criterion remains essential: the seat of a preformed must offer “M” shaped seat support. Concretely, your child's pelvis must be below the knees.

Secondly, when your child is wearing a pant size 2T and above, it is very likely that it is time to come take a look in the section “Young child” from our website!
We often talk about the comfort of the child, respecting their body shape, but know that the RIGHT size will ensure that YOU will be more comfortable just as much as your child. The reason is simple; a good-sized baby carrier better distributes your child's weight on your shoulders and hips, because it will fit their body shape perfectly!
Yes, around the age of 1, your child knows how to walk, but in the summer season, particularly during long days, hikes, festivals and other outings, we both quickly get bored of this lifestyle!
