I’ve been asked many timeas about facing babies outwards. so many of the carriers available pride thamselves on being able to be worn this way. and so many people are excited by the idea of facing their child out to see the world. However we DO NOT recoomend this for a number of reasons.
That said we are aware that some children (particularly between the ages of 3 and 6 months) are determined to face the world and fight inward facing carries. If this is your child there are a few options open to you. We suggest switching to hip carries and seeing if this helps. We also reccomend learning a high back carry in a woven wrap or a mei tai, which allows the child a view over your shoulder. For front carries, it is possible to use the ring-sling and face the baby out in a buddha carry for short periods.
