1. Breathe Ensure baby is always able to breathe.
Never cover baby’s head with fabric or any other element. Your baby can suffocate! Keep baby’s chin off his chest, the little ones may not have sufficient muscle control to lift up their chin or open their airway.
Baby’s chin and nose should face upwards.
Ensure sufficient neck support.
2. Hips We recommend that you do not carry your baby in a cradle position, this might block baby’s airway.
Ensure a straight up position (vertical) with knees higher than baby’s bottom.
Baby’s legs should be evenly supported from knee to knee in a nice frog position.
3. Kissable distance Keep your baby snug to your body and high on your chest at a kissable distance.
Create sufficient neck support until baby’s back and neck muscles are developed well enough.
If your back starts aching, you might be carrying your baby too low or the carrier might be twisted.
