soft structured carriers,
are some of the best-selling and most popular baby carriers available. Combining the support of a hiking backpack with the two-shoulder ergonomics of a mei tai (Asian-style carrier), a soft structured carrier keeps baby close to your center of gravity with baby's weight distributed to your hips and shoulders.
Going beyond the frontpack design, modern buckle carriers allow baby to be carried on your front and your back, and, with some designs, your hip, too. Padded shoulder straps are worn backpack-style around your shoulders with a chest clip to help keep them from slipping. Some carriers allow straps to be crossed in an X on your back for front carries, while others are worn backpack-style for front and back carries. A firm but flexible padded hip belt helps transfer the bulk of baby's weight to your hips.
