Safety & Endorsements
This squat style position is the position new babies will automatically assume when they are picked up.
T.I.C.K.S Guidelines for Safe Babywearing
The number one tip we have for first time wearers is to ensure your Carrier is firm and tight.
For Wraps: Focus that tension on the shoulder passes. The two pockets across your chest will stretch to fit your baby and hold them high and secure. As our fabric blend contains spandex to mould to you and provide a lightweight and comfy carry, it also means that it will stretch. So pull down the shoulder passes TIGHT, make sure there is no slack in the fabric and your baby will sit high and firm in these pockets.
This one is pretty simple. Baby’s face, nose and mouth should remain uncovered by your body and by the Carrier.
The easiest way to do this?
Make sure you always have a full view of your little one’s face.
CLOSE ENOUGH TO KISS
Keeping your baby at the correct height will ensure all eyes are on them - visible and kissable. By simply tipping your chin down you should be able to kiss the top of your baby’s head.
KEEP CHIN OFF CHEST
Curled airways can restrict breathing, so ensure baby’s chin is up and away from their chest at all times.
Another good reason to always keep them In View and Close Enough To Kiss - chins up baby!
When wearing correctly, baby's knees should be bent up and in line with their belly button and gently spread to the sides (like a frog or koala bear). Their legs and dropped bottom will resemble a 'M' shape and baby's pelvis will slide to the front.
Ultimately this positioning helps support your baby's spine by promoting the age appropriate C shape curve.
