Can you cross straps on Ergo 360?

Answered by Phillip Nicastro

You can cross the straps on the Ergo 360 carrier! This is a great option for added comfort and support, especially for those who find that crossed straps distribute the weight of the baby more evenly across their shoulders and back.

To wear the shoulder straps crossed on your back, you first need to adjust the carrier in the front carry position, with baby facing in or facing out. Once you have the carrier positioned correctly on your body, you can simply take the shoulder straps and cross them over each other on your back.

Some people prefer to have the straps crossed higher up on their back, closer to their shoulder blades, while others find it more comfortable to have the straps crossed lower down, closer to their waist. This is entirely up to personal preference and what feels most comfortable for you.

When wearing the straps crossed, you’ll want to make sure they are securely fastened and tightened so that the carrier feels snug and supportive. You can experiment with different strap lengths and adjustments to find the perfect fit for you.

It’s important to note that not all carriers are designed to be worn with crossed straps, so it’s always a good idea to check the instructions or consult the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure that your carrier supports this function.

Wearing crossed straps on the Ergo 360 carrier is a great option for added comfort and support. Whether you choose to have the straps crossed higher up or lower down on your back is a personal preference, so feel free to experiment and find what works best for you. Enjoy your babywearing journey!
