Inoshi Get Going Guide - When should I babywear my baby on my back?

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.
