What Carrying Positions for the Ergobaby Omni 360?


The Ergobaby Omni is suitable from newborn and offers everything you might want in terms of carrying positions.


  • Front carry inwards from newborn
  • Front carry forwards facing
  • Hip Carry
  • Back carry


The Ergobaby Omni 360 baby carrier offers all carry positions, and can be used in the front carry position facing you or facing out, as well as hip and back carry positions. Please refer to the specific requirements for use and instructions for each carry position.


It can be used with your newborn meeting the minimum weight and height requirements, in the front carry position facing you. Your newborn baby must weigh 7 lbs minimum (3.2 kg) and be at least 20 inches tall (50.8 cm).


carrier has been specifically designed so you can carry your newborn baby (minimum 7 lbs / 3.2 kg) without the need of an infant insert. Easy to use, the Ergobaby Omni 360 carrier's bucket seat gradually adjusts to your growing baby from newborn to toddler (7-45 lbs / 3.2-20 kg) to support your baby in an ergonomic M-shape position at all ages. Please refer to the label on the waistbelt or instructions to adjust the seat based on your baby's height.


The Ergobaby Omni 360 carrier adapts to your growing baby in just one step. Adjust the seat using the velcro tabs on the waistbelt based on your baby's height: along the red lines for a baby between 20-24 inches / 50.8-61 cm (~0-3 months), along the yellow lines for a baby between 24-28 inches / 61-71 cm (~3-9 months), along the blue lines for a baby over 28 inches / 71 cm (~9 months +).


This baby carrier can be used until your baby weighs 45 lbs / 20 kg. There is no restriction on how long you can continue wearing baby in a specific carry position, this is more about your comfort and baby's comfort. We generally recommend wearing babies over 2 years old in the back position as it is the most comfortable position for longer durations of carrying with taller and larger babies. We recommend that you carry your baby high enough on your back so she/he can have a fun view of the world over your shoulder.


In terms of facing out, every baby develops differently. You can start wearing your baby facing out once your baby demonstrates strong head and neck control, with his chin above the carrier body, and weighs 14 lbs minimum (6.4 kg). This is usually around 5 months. Do not use a pillow to prop baby up. Make sure to narrow the seat when baby is facing out: adjust the button seats to the inner grey buttons for the Omni 360 Cotton carriers, and adjust the slider adjustments to the inner setting (toward the center) for the Omni 360 Cool Air Mesh carriers. If baby gets sleepy or shows signs of overstimulation, turn baby around to face you.


The Ergobaby Omni 360 baby carrier is machine washable as all of our carriers. Make sure to fasten all hook and loop fasteners (velcro) and buckles before washing. Use mild detergent free of bleach, perfumes, dyes, chlorine, or optical brighteners.


If you want a carrier that will work from newborn with no need for an infant insert, and that will allow for forward-facing and carrying into toddlerhood, then the Ergobaby Omni 360 is your number one option - it's the one carrier that does everything!
