Babywearing - 9 months-old
I’ve never worn my 9 months-old. Is it too late to try?
Trying to wear your baby after his first months isn't doomed to failure!
You (and your baby) may need a bit more time to get used to it, but if you're patient and motivated nothing is impossible.
An older baby will not be worn the same way as a newborn. Your child may have lost the reflex with which infants push themselves up and grab the adult and you may have to explain to him what you expect him to do.
You won't use the same carries as with a newborn. With a bigger and heavier baby, hip and back carries make more sense than front carries.
You can get help from an experienced instructor and form an opinion in a workshop dedicated to wearing older babies.
