What is a "physiological position" for babywearing?

At every age, its physiological position.

- For an infant: it imitates the position of carrying by arm or in utero (position coiled in flexion). This position supports his psychomotor development 1. Head in line with the spine 2. Hands folded together bent close to the face 3. Deep seat (the baby carrier or arm covers not only the buttocks but also the thighs and goes to the hollow knees). Pelvis tilted 4. Rounded back 5. Child sitting on his buttocks, not on his feet 6. Respect for the hip / knee / ankle axis (the ankles must follow the movement, the thighs open, no duck feet) .

Regarding the position of the knees:
- Before 3 months: knees at the width of the pelvis

- After 3-4 months: if the baby can turn his head on his own and, when he is put on his back, lifts his feet off the ground (thanks to his abdominals). This gives him a larger gap between the 2 knees. With this momentum, he makes the swing with the weight of his body. The knees can therefore now embrace the wearer.
