Place baby on opposite shoulder to the strap which is closest to your body. Pull fabric closest to you across your baby’s back, keeping your baby’s legs tucked in the fetal position
Pull the opposite strap across your baby’s bum and back
Pull the fabric with the label up to cover baby’s back and shoulders. Your baby’s feet should be inside the wrap with your baby’s knees sitting above hip height in a frog like or fetal position.
Ensure your wrap is tight enough that your baby's back is not curved/slumped over in a C shape. This will allow them to breathe without obstruction and keep the wrap from pulling on your back. Your wrap should be comfortable for both you and your baby, if this isn’t the case please reach out to us on our contact us page.
IN VIEW AT ALL TIMES
Your baby’s face should always be visible. You should’t have to move the fabric to be able to check on them. Your baby should always be facing up and not in towards your chest.
CLOSE ENOUGH TO KISS
Your baby’s head should be as close to you chin as comfortable. It should be to kiss your baby’s forehead just by dipping your head.
KEEP CHIN OFF CHEST
Baby’s should never be curled over so their chin is in a downward position or forced onto the chest. There should be clear space between your baby’s chin and chest.
Your baby should be held close enough that their back is supported in its natural position. Make sure their tummy and chest are resting against yours.
