The Obi is the simplest front baby carrier around
The word Obi means belt or sash in Japanese. Obi baby carrier is constructed of two belts of fabric that cross twice and are sewn where they intersect, creating an X shaped carrier. It slips over the wearer’s head and onto the shoulders. The center of the crosses is situated in the front and back of the wearer’s body. The front cross creates a seat/back support for the baby and the back cross serves as the wearer’s support, spreading the weight of the baby evenly.
The efficient weight distribution uses a large area of the wearer’s back and shoulders. To prevent chafing, the Obi is lightly padded in the baby’s leg area of the carrier. At the top of the front cross there is an additional triangle piece of fabric that makes for a comfortable head rest for the baby. It can be opened to ease the access of putting the baby in or out of the carrier.
