The hard part will be trying to figure out which babywearing costume you will choose because, really, there isn't a wrong choice here.
As you will notice, some of these costumes incorporate a baby in an outward-facing baby carrier. If you plan on wearing your baby in an outward position, please consider using a carrier with a wider seat if you don't have one already.
Up until fairly recently, many carriers made for facing outward were non-ergonomic baby carriers. Due to their narrow seat, they aren't considered to be the best option for wearing your baby.
The reason for this is because they don't provide much hip support and instead allow your baby's legs to dangle at an uncomfortable angle. Not only that, but they're also not very comfortable for the wearer, especially with babies over a few months old.
Now there is a way that you can safely and comfortably wear your baby facing out.
These days there are so many choices when it comes to ergonomic baby carriers that provide proper hip placement and now, some of them are made to allow for outward-facing babywearing.
Instead of a Baby Bjorn or Infantino style carrier, try giving your baby more support with a quality wrap carrier or ergonomic baby carriers. Plus, your back will feel much better, too!
