Wearing Instructions and Safety

Wearing instructions
Step 1:
Look down the center of the garment, find the handles, step in and pull up to bra line.
Step 2:
Raise left shoulder. Lower baby in from burp position to mid-line betweeen your breasts.
Step 3:
Raise the right shoulder and knot the two tails tight over baby's thighs and back. Option #1
Step 4:
Pull the skirt up over the baby's back and your lumbar for extra support. Option #2
For babies 5-18 lbs
  • Position baby mid-line, heart to heart
  • Legs remain in flexed, squat position, and back is supported in a C-curve
  • Let little feet drop to either side of the flower label on the left shoulder wing
  • Tie right wing and turn baby's face to either side
  • Tilt chin up and support head and neck with wings
  • Adjust the shoulder loops to keep fabric away from baby's face
Safe Nursing
  • Most first time mothers like lowering one or both wings to nurse, and shifting the baby's bum to one side, as pictured.
  • For laid back nursing we recommend being propped up at no less than a 30 degree angle to maintain visual contact.
  • Return baby to mid-line after nursing, and position baby so nose and mouth are not pressed against your chest.
  • Skin-to-skin is great for NICU babies. Let your NICU team know that you'd like to hold your baby skin-to-skin as soon as it is safe
Safe Nesting
WEIGHT RESTRICTION - Made for babies 5 to18 pounds.
FALL HAZARD - Infants can fall out of baby carriers.
  • Take special care when leaning or walking.
  • Never bend at waist - bend at knees.
  • Adjust carrier snugly over baby’s back with side tie or buckle.
  • Before each use, make sure there are no tears or loose seams.
SUFFOCATION HAZARD - Infants under 4 months can suffocate in the product if face is pressed tight against your body.

  • Allow room for head movement.
  • Do not press nose and mouth against the caregiver’s body.
  • Turn baby head to either side, support with shoulder wings.
  • Tilt baby’s chin slightly up to keep airways open.
  • Keep babies face visible by adjusting shoulder rings.
  • Baby’s shoulders should be above the wearer’s breasts, and top of head close enough to kiss.
OVERHEATING - Skin-to-skin generates extra heat. When you are too warm so is your baby. Take a break, especially in hot weather.
