Baby-wearing is an extremely safe and healthy practice when it is done correctly.  Ensuring that you are comfortable with your carrier and are able to ensure the safe position of our child is your responsibility.  We offer several instructional materials including photos and videos to help you with this process. We also offer baby-wearing consultations. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the safety the carrier, the proper positioning for your child, or any other question that you would like to address, please contact us directly so that we may assist you.

We recommend that you have another person handy when trying out your carrier for the first time.  If this is not possible, you can use a sofa, bed, or table for extra support.  A mirror is also handy if you want to check anything or see anything behind your back.

Some people will be able to put on a carrier for the first time with no problems.  Others, it may take a little practice, but soon it will be seconds to get a carrier on and baby in it with no difficulties.  Before putting baby in for the first time, make sure baby is fed, changed, and somewhat happy.  Some babies do protest to being in a carrier the first few times, but eventually all babies fall in love with them.  Try to go for a nice walk the first time to adjust yourself and baby to the carrier.

Please remember that, while your carrier and baby-wearing in general are safe practices, it is your responsibility to keep you and your baby safe through ensuring that your activities are safe and appropriate.  Please take extra care when squatting, bending over, stooping, turning sharp corners, etc.  We do not recommend baby wearing with ice skating, skiing, or other high speed or contact sports. Check your knots and straps frequently to ensure that your carrier is properly tied. Always make sure you can see your baby’s face and that his/her airway is not obstructed. Inspect your carrier often and do not use it if the seams or fabric is ripping or worn out.
