There are a couple of different ways you can use your Manduca soft structured carrier.  This video tutorial will show you how to cross straps when performing a front carry.  This method is often preferred by those who have narrow shoulders or may feel like the straps are slipping off their shoulders.  Crossing straps is only suitable for a front carry & not a back carry.

Carry your babies on your front & parent facing until they are able to sit unassisted, then you may attempt back carries.  This is often around the 6 month age.  Always have one hand on your babies back when placing them in the carrier & refer to your product manual for more hints & tips.
