Recommended Usage Time
We advise using the Onbumocco for 30 minutes, because it has been found by pediatric physiotherapists that young children’s developing bodies can become accustomed to this position if they are left in it for more than 30 minutes, which can affect their bone growth. Once every 30 minutes, they should be taken down and allowed to move freely to stretch or relax, and after that if need be, they can be put in the Onbumocco again. This should be done with all carriers, not only the Onbumocco.
The optimal position for using the Onbumocco and to lessen the physical burden on the child and user is to carry at a high position and be bent slightly forward at the hips, not the back. In this position, the child's hip joints can move easily, which prevents hip dysplasia.
