More safety tips:

Always check your wrap sling for any sign of wear, tear or damage. If you see any sign of wear or tear, stop using immediately.

Always secure your wrap firmly with a double knot. If using a ring sling, ensure you have threaded it through the rings securely following our instructions.

Please use caution and common sense when carrying your child - be aware of anything they can reach. We strongly advise against kind of activity involving hot or sharp instruments while carrying your baby like cooking, ironing, consuming hot drinks, etc... Be just as aware of hazards as you would be when they are being carried in-arms.

A baby sling is also not safe to use for strenuous physical activity, cycling etc.

Do not use in place of a car seat.

Until you are comfortable tying and untying your wraparound sling, particularly for back carries, it is recommended that you ask another adult to help you support the baby while tying the wrap. If you are worried, please wrap standing over a soft surface, like a bed or sofa for additional reassurance.

Do not leave the wraparound sling around your child unsupervised in case they get tangled in it.
