First, I’m TOTALLY jealous of the Mama Knows and her chance to review an Onbuhimo. I’ve been totally Onbuhimo curious. To coincide with her recent review, The Mama Knows is hosting a giveaway for a Soul Slings Onbuhimo Baby Carrier! We’re helping her to promote it, and as a follower of my blog you can earn some bonus entries for this giveaway.
Heads up there is an affiliate link in here! The FTC wants me to let you know if you click on it The Mama Knows might earn an affiliate sale from any purchases made. Just a heads up. Also, nobody paid me to write this post, I’m just helping another blogger mama out.
The Soul Slings Onbuhimo carrier is primarily used as a back carry for babies who can sit unassisted and are over 7kg (15lbs). This unique, and convenient, style of carrier originated in Japan and is made without a waist belt! The Onbuhimo is best suited to “arms out” back carries, and will work right into toddler-hood with a max weight of 18kg (40lbs). It’s quite adjustable and is a popular choice for caregivers of any size and shape.
About the Soul Slings Onbuhimo Carrier
You can read more in The Mama Knows’ full review, but here is some general information on the carrier.
- Fits 15-40lbs (7-18kg)
- Suitable for front and back carries but primarily used as an arms-out, back carrier
- Adjustable Hood for protection from sun and wind and to offer support while sleeping
- Back/chest strap with firm, supportive padding for optimum weight distribution
