Chekoh supports healthy hip development by ensuring the 'M-Position' is safely achieved in our carriers.
Your 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, and their back will be supported in a beautiful (and age appropriate) C shape curve.
This squat style position is the position new babies will automatically assume when they are picked up. They automatically bend their legs and tuck up like a little frog and prepare themselves instinctively to be carried.
Our Chekoh carriers will carry your baby safely and naturally and also comply with the ATSM Standards for safety.
We encourage and promote the T.I.C.K.S Guidelines for safe Babywearing and have these listed and displayed in our easy to follow instructions booklets which accompany all our carriers.
Further information on safe Babywearing, can be found with the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission’s safety alert titled ‘What you need to know about: Baby slings’ published June 2014 (seehere).
