How to wear your sling comfortably and safely:
1. Kissable: Your baby’s head should be close enough to kiss, with their face easy to see at all times with just a quick glance down. The fabric of your sling should never be closed around your baby so that you’d need to open it up to check on them. In a cradle position, baby should face upwards and not be turned in towards your body.
2. Chin up: Ensure there’s always a space of at least one finger width between your baby’s chin and their chest. Baby should never be curled up with their chin forced to their chest as this can restrict their breathing.
3. Corsage & Cap: Rest rings at the hollow between your shoulder and breast in ‘corsage position’ with the fabric untwisted and spread wide to cover your shoulder. Remember to check your sling before each and every use and to regularly inspect the fabric for signs of wear and tear.
4. Wide and tight: The fabric should be widely, evenly and tightly spread across your back. In the front, the fabric should be tight enough to hug your little one close to you. Slack or loose fabric can cause your baby to slump down, possibly hindering their breathing or pulling on your back.
5. Deep seat: Your baby’s bum should be below their knees and at or above your belly button. In an upright carry, ensure that their stomach and chest are comfortable close to you, so their back is supported in its natural position. For newborns, be sure to bring the fabric up to the nape of their neck to support their sweet, little head.
