Question: When to put baby on back in Ergo?

When can I start putting baby on my back?

I waited a little longer than 6 months to use the back carry position with my own kids, but that was just due to my comfort level.

Is it OK for 6 month old to sleep on side?

Side sleeping is usually safe once your baby is older than 4 to 6 months and rolls over on their own after being placed on their back.

Labour tends to take longer, be more painful and you’re more likely to have a caesarean or assisted (instrumental) birth if your baby is in a posterior position.
