Stirrups attach to the hip belt and give little feet a place to rest while improving the comfort for both you and your baby. They facilitate a better sitting position for your baby and release pressure off the baby’s sacrum. Baby’s weight is better balanced and distributed between your hips and shoulders so you can comfortably carry for a longer period of time. The stirrups prevent older babies from accidentally kicking you while walking or throwing your balance off by swinging their feet. The stirrups easily slip on the waist belt and adjust in length and width.
