- Before trying out the carrier read the manual and familiarise yourself with the carrier. Try the carrier first without the baby, in order to learn how the buckles and strap tightening system work. Then, adjust the shoulder straps, waist belt, and a panel.
- If possible, stand in front of a mirror. It will help you with your first attempts.
- We suggest your baby is fed and relaxed before before placing them up in the carrier.
- The carrier is something new for the baby so at the beginning child may fidget and feel unsettled. Talk to her or him and move/sway - so your baby feels more secure and safe. When the carrier is buckled up and tightened a short walk is recommended - indoors or outdoors. This movement will help your child get used to the carrier and the new situation. - Remember, the carrier adds an additional layer of fabric. Consider this when preparing an outfit for your baby. When it is cold, protect your child’s head and feet. However, on sunny days it is good to cover the child’s head against the sun.
- This carrier has been designed for two positions: belly-to-belly or on the back. If you don’t feel confident putting your child into the carrier on your own, ask someone for help and additional back up.

REMEMBER - you are responsible for yourself and your child during putting and using this carrier.

 

Fitting and adjusting the Carrier.    

 1)   Adjust the width of the panel to the size of the child so that it reaches from one knee pit to the other. Adjustment can be found on the waist belt. Unfasten the Velcro located under the panel, extend/narrow them, a fasten them again. 

        

 2) Using the hood you can extend the panel. All you need to do - is place loop in hooks located on the shoulder straps. 

     

3) You can also control the width and length of the hood for perfect adjustment to suit your needs. You can easily do it using stoppers.

     

 

4) Try fastening and unfastening the buckle on the waist belt. It offers triple protection. To open it you have to press the side ratchets together with the centre button. Every time you put on the carrier, make sure, you hear the characteristic “click” - which meansthe buckle has been correctly fastened.
