The Worn Baby

Flashback with me will you? 10 years ago, a few awesome WAHMs were making and selling onbuhimos (onbus) with rings. The fad died off because the onbu is a bit more difficult to find the "sweet spot" when wearing. Fast forward to 2015. Everyone is raving about this awesome carrier called an onbuhimo. The onbu love is back and this time, most are made with buckles. There are some things to keep in mind about onbuhimos:

  • They are mainly for back carrying which means your child needs to be AT LEAST 6 months old
  • With no waist band, they are excellent carriers for expectant mothers
  • Padding doesn't necessarily mean comfort
  • Keep adjusting until you do find that sweet spot, but keep in mind that it may not happen immediately

Here at The Worn Baby, we carry 2 different brands of onbuhimos - Fidella & Lenny Lamb. Below, you will find the measurements of both and I hope that it helps you pick the right one for you!
