Inoshi Get Going Guide - Creating a Good Seat

Regardless whether you choose to do a Front, Hip or Back carry, it’s important to create a comfortable seat for your baby when using the Inoshi. You should aim to have:
- Baby UPRIGHT, FLUSH AGAINST YOU and FACING IN TOWARDS YOU
- Baby sitting in natural “SPREAD/SQUAT”, “SEATED” or “M” position
- Baby’s neck/head, torso, bottom and legs FULLY SUPPORTED
- Helps maintain your centre of gravity
- Provides comfort and reassurance to your baby as they can see you
- Allows baby to be seated in the most comfortable position - with legs up and fully supported from knee-to-knee by the Inoshi.
- Baby RECLINED, or facing AWAY FROM YOU, or with their legs hanging STRAIGHT down.
- Can make you (or your baby) lose centre of balance
- Can isolate your baby (can’t see you for reassurance)
- Can place extra pressure on their groin
