Lenny Up vs Classic Ergonomic Carrier


You like the idea of babywearing! Are you looking for a simple and comfortable carrier? An ergonomic carrier would be the answer! Read about a LennyUp carrier and the classic ergonomic carrier in size Baby/Toddler and choose the best one for you!

  • What does ‘ergonomic carrier’ mean?

It’s a babywearing ‘tool’ with a soft panel, well-padded waist belt and shoulder straps with buckles like in the backpacks. The baby’s position in it is ergonomic (a ‘frog’ position with knees higher than the bottom, slightly rounded and well supported back and the head is not bent over the chest).

  • Will all the carriers suit me and my baby?

Because of the regulation options, ergonomic carriers suit most of the adults - that’s why we choose the carrier according to the baby’s size.

  • How should I choose the size of the carrier for my baby?

We choose Baby and Toddler ergonomic carriers (from the Classic Line) according to the baby’s size. Adjustable carriers ‘grow’ with your child but should be chosen according to the size and age too.

See the table below:


Ergonomic Baby

Ergonomic Toddler

Age (approximate)

0-2 yo.

4mos. plus


Baby’s height


56- 80/86


86 plus

Panel’s height




Panel’s width




  • Is LennyUp better than the carriers from the Classic Line (Baby, Toddler)?

There isn’t one answer to this question. It depends on the preferences of parents and the baby. Both types of carriers have their advantages.

  • What are the advantages of the LennyUp carrier?

    • It has a wide range of regulation options which enables you to carry your baby from the first weeks of life to around 2 yo

    • It enables you to carry very small children, even younger than 4 months

    • You can use it with children smaller / bigger than average

    • It grows with a baby

    • It enables you to carry siblings in different sizes - depending on the needs

  • Sounds great! So why should I even think about the non-adjustable carrier?

    • Most of the parents choosing the ergonomic carrier are searching for the simple solution. We put every effort to make LennyUp very easy and intuitive in use but learning how it works and the adjustment itself takes a moment

    • Carriers from the Classic Line have a simple construction and can be used very quickly

    • The choice can be made because of the aesthetic reasons: beautiful stitches on the waist belt or lack of the regulation straps

Seems a little complicated? Try to sum it up!
