If you’ve chosen a Lillebaby carrier, your baby should be over 6 months old and tall enough to clear the front panel entirely, having their face and mouth visible at all times. Your little one’s legs should not be dangling down and should look like they are sitting on the floor instead.
Is it safe to carry baby facing out?
The limited research available suggests that carrying your baby facing outwards for short periods of time is very unlikely to cause them any harm. Do make sure that your baby is strong enough to support their own head, and always turn them back to face you for sleeping to protect their airways.

Can you use baby Bjorn forward facing?
The Baby Carrier One, Miracle, and Original are all compatible for outward facing carrying. Following advice from pediatricians we collaborate with, we recommend that your baby be carried facing inwards in the baby carrier until around five months of age.
