Ergobaby front carry ruck straps photo tutorial. A step by step guide to give you confidence! This method clips the chest belt at the start so it is preclipped into the optimal position.

Many parents find it hard to do up the chest belt of rucksack strapped carriers. This may be due to how flexible they are (or aren’t!) and how easy they are able to reach behind their neck. Some find this pre-clipped method easier.

Top tip: don’t forget you can move the chest belt up and down on the webbing that runs along the shoulder straps. Everyone will have a particular preference for the chest belt location. As you tighten the shoulder straps, the chest belt will move down your back. If it still feels too high behind your neck once the shoulder straps are tightened, move it down the webbing for the next time. Check you can still reach it to undo it when ready. If it is too low, move it up the webbing for the next time. A few practices and you’ll soon find the right combination for your comfort and convenience.
