Fitting Instructions


Placing an infant into the carrier

  1. Position the waist belt with the warning label facing inwards and the carrier’s lower body panel centered on your body.
  2. Fasten the waist buckle ensuring that it’s clicked into place and secure the waist belt by pulling the strap tight back against itself. The waist strap should sit tightly above the hips.  Excess black strap can be rolled up and neatly elasticated together using the storage loop attached to the end of the strap.
  3. Next stage is to fit the first shoulder strap and buckle. It’s worth leaving the buckles undone and loosening the shoulder straps so that on placing them over your shoulders, they can be reached from behind you.  Lift the body of the baby carrier up by placing the right shoulder strap on your right shoulder.
  4. Pull the right shoulder strap behind your back and across to your left hip such that it is running diagonally from right shoulder to left hip.
  5. Using your left hand behind your back, take the entire male buckle of the right shoulder strap (including extra strap length) through the elastic safety loop (found attached to the female buckle) on the left side of the body section.
  6. Secure the male buckle of the right shoulder strap into the female buckle on the left side of the body section until it securely locates and clicks tight.
  7. Pick up your infant facing inwards towards you, and position them on your left side.
  8. Use your left hand to support your child facing inwards, while using the other hand to slip the child’s left leg between the body section of the baby carrier, and your own body.
  9. Use your right hand to support your infant, while using the other hand to slip the infant’s right leg underneath the strap already buckled to the side of the baby carrier body section.
  10. Tighten the left shoulder strap by pulling it and consequently lifting the carrier body section up behind your infant’s back.
  11. While still holding the infant with your right hand, pull the left shoulder strap over your left shoulder and across your back (crossing diagonally over the already fitted right shoulder strap)
  12. Feed the male buckle (including extra strap length) through the elastic safety loop. Fix the male buckle of the left shoulder strap into the female buckle on the right side of the carrier body section until it locates and clicks tight.
  13. Pull the body panel up from its upper edge to ensure that the body of the baby carrier fabric is flush and there are no folds in it.
  14. Tighten both the shoulder straps evenly, by pulling on the these two side straps simultaneously. Ensure that the infant is comfortable, allowing room for head movement and not too tight against your torso.
  15. The infant’s back should be slightly rounded while sitting in the carrier and their bottom sat deep in the carrier’s body section, just above the waist belt.
  16. Your infant should now be secure while comfortable and with no restriction to head movement or breathing.

 Removing an infant from the carrier 

  1. In order to remove the infant from the carrier, hold the infant’s bottom in one hand and use your other hand to unbuckle one of the shoulder straps and release the elastic safety loop.
  2. Now use your other hand to hold the infant and pull the loose shoulder strap back over your shoulder in front of you so that it can hang down loose.
  3. While holding your child with one hand, unbuckle the other strap and release the elastic safety loop. Bring the loose strap over your shoulder to hang down in front of you.  This will release the tension in the carrier’s body section and the infant can be lifted out of the carrier safely.
