Global Tapestry - Inoshi Wrap Carrier Get Going Guide Front Page

Each Inoshi comes with it's own 16 page "Get Going Guide" Instructional Manual.  Our Get Going Guide goes into great detail about different features of the Inoshi, safety guidelines and how to wear your Inoshi.

HOW TO WEAR YOUR INOSHI

Your Inoshi can hold your child on you in three different carry positions.  The Get Going Guide provides clear step-by-step instructions on how to wear the Inoshi in one style for each of these three positions.

We would like to thank The Babywearing Practice for assisting us in creating these carrying instructions.

Global Tapestry - Inoshi Baby Carrier - Front Carry

FRONT CARRIES

Front carries are great for newborns to small toddlers.  Wearing your baby on your front is a great way to bond, have your little one close to you and is the best place for you to easily monitor them.

Global Tapestry - Inoshi Baby Carrier - Hip Carry

HIP CARRIES

Hip Carries are great beginner carries, can be worn on your front or on your side/hip, are great for little babies (use the Rollie) to bigger toddlers and can be done with all Inoshi sizes.  It is also a familiar carry for those who have used a Ring Sling before.

Global Tapestry - Inoshi Baby Carrier - Back Carry

BACK CARRIES

Using the Inoshi in a back carry is great for babies who can sit independently.  Back carriers are just like piggy-backs - but your hands are free!  Your little one can see the world over your shoulder and then snuggle up against you for a rest.

All of the Inoshi Back Carries start with you putting the Inoshi on your front, tying the belt at you back, twisting the Inoshi to your side, and then placing your baby into the Inoshi.  You then do a HIP SCOOT to get your baby onto your back. 

We do NOT recommend a "superman toss" or a "Santa sack" to get your baby onto your back with an Inoshi, as this defeats the purpose of having a belt as added security for your babywearing, doing these "tosses" can put extra strain on your baby's/child's shoulder joints and it can get cumbersome dealing with loose belt straps and tails when "tossing" your baby onto your back.

We recommend back carries are attempted once:

You are EXPERIENCED & CONFIDENT in FRONT or HIP carries,

AND...

Compared to a front or hip carry, we have reduced visibility of our baby on our back, making it more difficult to position & monitor them properly.  Having experience in front or hip carries gives us more confidence and knowledge in positioning & monitoring our baby in back carries.

When your BABY can SIT UNASSISTED When babies support themselves in a seated position WITHOUT external structures, their torso/breathing systems have reached a key development milestone.  Due to reduced visibility, it’s better for them to have stronger neck/head strength so they can manoeuvre themselves to keep their own airways clear.
