How to use and adjust a LennyLamb Onbuhimo in standard or toddler size
***Always keep a hand on baby as you are adjusting and be cautious when baby is elevated***
  • Place your child on the carrier on an elevated surface like a bed, with the rounded flap down, the reverse side up, and the hood back and away from you

  • Pull the width adjustment cord so that the panel goes from your child's knee to knee as support and doesn't force the leg straight. Knot to hold the width in place

  • Put your child's legs through the backpack straps. Your child's legs will be partially supported by the straps and partially supported by the seat

  • Lift the rounded flap up in front of your child to make a seat. You can ask your child to help you hold this in place!. When doing so, check the depth of the seat by seeing where it falls on baby's back. For arms in, it can line up at the top of the shoulder. For arms out, it should be just under the shoulder blade. You may need to let out the adjustment at the top to give more fabric and a larger seat panel

  • Lift your child onto your back depending on your preference. You can squat down and put your arms in like a backpack, hip scoot, or superman. Clip the chest strap

  • Once your child is up, check that the seat is in place properly. Now it's time to adjust! Bump your child up as high as you need to be comfortable, adjusting the straps as you do so. In this carrier, when baby is higher, the chest strap will move lower. Tighten as needed for comfort for both of you. Remember that you are not tightening your child closer to your body, but rather, you are rotating the carrier around so they settle higher. You want your child shoulder to shoulder with you for optimum comfort
