What is an Onbuhimo?

An Onbuhimo is a baby carrier originating from Japan. It is a mere backpack and usable from sitting age, a size from about 80 cm and a weight between 10 and 30 kg. The Onbuhimo is no suitable baby carrier if your child weighs more than 10 kg, but is not able to sit unassisted.
The Onbu is the perfect baby carrier for larger kids. It is handled like a backpack: It can be put on and off easily.
This baby carrier is perfect for pregnant woman, due to the missing hip belt. There are Onbus with buckles, straps or loops. Normally, it can be closed with a buckle across the chest to spread the weight of your child onto your whole torso.
