Important information about babywearing
The most important aspect to keep in mind is to place the baby in the sling in a position that allows her to have a 2 fingers wide space between her chin and her chest!
HOW TO WEAR YOUR BABY CORRECTLY?
Tightly, by supporting the baby’s back all around; the baby carrier should reach from the back of one knee to the other. The knees are high, the pelvis should face inwards and downwards. The spine should be convex, just like in the foetal pose.
Anatomically, for the formation of the hip joints, the best for the baby is to have her legs spread in a 90 degrees angle in the carrier. Viewed from the front, the legs should form an M shape. The stems of the letter M are the legs, the middle is the baby’s bottom. The legs should not hang, and they should not be in a split position, either. We shall find a position that is comfortable for the baby.
TIGHT KNOT, HEAD HIGHT
The knot shall be so tight that when we lean forward, the baby does not lift off from our body. The right height for the baby is to have her head and inch (a few centimetres) under our chin.
We can babywear from the moment our baby was born. We recommend carrying the baby in an upright position.
The baby should always face the carrier person’s body when placed in the carrier. Always check the tightness of the knot and the bond!
The sling or carrier should always reach at least up to the armpit of the baby. If the baby does not hold her head on her own, the carrier must support the nape or the middle of the head as well!
Prevent any objects from getting in front of the baby’s nose or mouth that could block the airways!
When travelling, always use a seat that suits the vehicle!
On public transport, always be aware of the placement of the baby, and pay attention to her safety as well!
While wearing your baby, do not carry out life-threatening or sudden movements!
Pay special attention to the child’s safety around hot or sharp objects!
The manufacturer of the baby carrier is not responsible for any accident that may happen while you wear your baby in the carrier!
