The Onbuhimo is the optimal carrying aid for fast in between, always with you and up and down.
How high should the Onbuhimo sit?
The higher the better, because the centre of gravity shifts positively upwards and a heavy weight can be carried better. The right height for you can only be found by trying it out.
Arms in or arms out?
This can be decided by the child, because they are stable in the back from sitting age. If you generally carry your child outside with your arm, the child will sit even higher on the back part, so that the back part ends even lower after sitting down and the child can better make the arm out or has it outside right from the start.
Can I also use the Onbuhimo to wear in front of my stomach?
No, it is possible, but the carrier sits very high and therefore restricts the field of vision.
Why is an Onbuhimo only suitable from sitting age?
By simply shifting the weight to the shoulders when carrying, there is a lot of pressure in the upper back of the child. The musculature of the child is more developed and stable with the sitting age.
Does the Onbuhimo need a bar reduction?
No, generally not, because it is cut diagonally upwards and smaller children are placed higher. However, the bridge reduction also takes away backrest height and is recommended if the children are smaller than the recommended size or are very tender.
In which dress sizes does the Onbuhimo fit?
By shortening the straps, the Onbu fits from size XS to XL. However, please note that if the child is too small for the size of the stretcher (size 1 from 70/75 cm height and size 2 from 90 cm height), it will not sit high enough on its back.
If you have any questions about the Onbuhimo, please call us during shop opening hours. If you just want to try one out, we have special test carriers in the shop which can be used more extensively for a deposit and rental fee over a longer period of time.
