Adjusting Your Carrier For Your Baby

Front Loaded

These instructions are for carrying your infant on your front.  If your baby is older than 6 months and only if they are capable of controlling and carrying the weight of their head, then they may enjoy riding on your back.  Both options are possible, and it's entirely up to you and your baby as to how you want to take on the world.

Your baby carrier is designed to be pretty versatile in how it cradles your baby against your torso.  It's important to note that these fitting instructions are a guide only in terms of the age and weights provided, and ultimately discretion should be applied in ensuring that your baby is comfortable and contented in the carrier.

The first adjustments to consider are the concealed buttons in the waistband.  There are four buttons on the left and right side of the carrier as shown in the diagrams below.  Adjust the buttons to reflect the size and weight of your baby using the guidance from each diagram.

Critically your babies bottom and thighs should be supported with their knees poking out of the cradle.  If the thighs aren't being supported, then increase the width of the cradle to suit.  If the knees are tucked into the cradle, then decrease the width using the fixings so as to allow your baby's feet to hang comfortably.


Head Rest Adjustment

The next adjustment to consider is the position of the head rest.  This can be tucked in and left unbuttoned, which makes for a snugger fit and is ideal for really little ones.   The head rest can also be folded out and buttoned to the cradle which is typically the go to setup, as it's ideal for your baby to look out and about.  Finally the head rest can be buttoned to the shoulder straps in an upright position which allows for some additional neck support if your baby wishes to catch a nap.  The diagrams below illustrate these 3 options.
