Can I Carry Baby On My Back?

It depends on what carrier you are using, your skill level, and baby's developmental age. The stages here are gross oversimplifications; there are situations in which a baby might not be sitting unsupported but still be safe to carry in a soft structured carrier on your back, for example, but it is important that they have strong head, neck and trunk strength in order to prevent slumping and positional asphyxiation since they cannot be monitored as easily in a low back carrry. For commercial carriers, it is wise to always adhere to the specific brand recommendations.
