Positioning and Safety

Positioning and safety

A good carrier will mimic the way you carry baby in arms. Baby’s legs should be in the M position, with their bottom in the centre of the carrier below their knees. Baby’s head and neck should be clear of fabric at all times and their chin should not touch their chest. Carriers should be snug, keeping baby close to your body.
