Soft Structured Carriers (SSC)
Soft Structured Carriers (SSC) fasten with straps and buckles and often have a padded or structured waist. They can be used on the wearer’s front, back or hip, and, as the weight is distributed across both shoulders, they are very comfortable for long periods.
They are quick and easy to put on, but if the carrier is shared with a different sized adult you will have to learn to adjust the fitting of the buckles.
They are suitable for babies from about three-months-old until well into toddlerhood although some makes have the ability to adapt to use with a smaller baby. They come in a wide range of fabrics with options such as sleep hoods and toy hooks.
