It is important that your baby is carried in this position or our ‘Facing In Position’ with legs out for the first 3 months to support the delicate curve of their spine. If your baby appears to slump, twist the outer band at your shoulders to provide more support, and press their back gently to check their airways are clear. Carrier should be firm and may feel tight at first but this is a good thing.
Be sure to check your baby often and always have their face in your sight. Make sure your babys bottom is bearing the weight of their body by cupping this with the outer band, so feet are loose below. For this and ‘Facing In’ position, dancing and patting their bottom will help soothe them as they get used to being carried.
