Before you start wearing your baby carrier, please ensure you read these baby sling safety recommendations carefully.
When your child is in the baby wrap, she should be sitting at “kiss-level”, you just need to tilt your head forward to kiss her forehead. No matter what type of baby sling you use, her bottom should not be lower than your navel. If she is too low, your back will ache.
The baby sling holds the baby in a sitting position, not hanging down by the crotch - her legs shouldn’t be dangling down. She sits in a frog-like position; her knees higher than her bottom. That way, there is no pressure on her spine. The baby carrier transfers the baby's weight to your body.
The baby wrap needs to be tied fairly snug, more than you would expect. Calin Bleu baby slings are made of fabric that has enough ’give’ in itself to mould around the baby and you. If your back is aching or if you find the baby is sliding down, it is probably not tight enough.
