1. Fasten and tighten the belt with the wrong side facing you and the right side out. The panel hangs over the belt with the right side facing you and the wrong side out. Slide the buckle through the safety elastic band.
2. When connecting the buckle, a clear sound is heard that the buckle is properly connected.
3. Rest the baby on your chest and spread its legs so that they are both free on the side of the panel. It is safer to hold the baby by the waist rather than the baby bum.
4. Lift the panel over the baby by holding the baby with one hand and lifting the panel over the back with the other. Slide the shoulder straps one at a time so that with your free hand always hold the baby across the panel. When both shoulder straps are on your shoulders, fasten the transverse strap that should fit under your neck.
5. With the straps tightened, the transverse strap will lower to the ideal height; about in the middle of the shoulder blades. Tighten the straps so that mostly the palm fits between you and the baby. The shoulder strap should form the letter H. Its role is only to keep the shoulder straps in their place. If tightened too much, it looks more like the letter K or X and thus creates an uncomfortable pressure on the back that can cause pain when worn for a longer time.
6. When the carrier is well adjusted, the baby’s body is centered in the carriers panel, the upper edge of the belt is parallel to the floor and the babys knees are slightly higher than the bum: the knees and pelvis form the letter M, is the baby is in a semi-recumbent position.
1. Pull the buttoned carrier to its side and lift the baby. Extend its legs, lift the panel over its back so you always hold it with your free hand.
2. Firmly grasp both shoulder straps and immediately pull the left shoulder strap to the left shoulder (or right to the right).
3. Switching your baby from side to the back is the safest way of switching for restless babies who like to twist and jump in the carrier.
4. Hold your right shoulder strap with your left hand (or left with the right) as you pass it from hand to hand behind your head. With your free hand, push the belt as you pull the straps to place the baby on your back.
5. When both straps are on your shoulders, fasten the transverse strap. It is high at the neck but will fall 1-2 finger widths below the collarbone with a shoulder strap. Its role is only to attach the straps, not to take on the weight so do not over tighten it. A tightened transverse strap can cause dull pain between the shoulder blades and neck during prolonged wear.
6.Tighten the straps in the direction of the pushers (toward back and down). The baby in the back position has a much better view. Make sure that the panel extends at least to the armpit and is firmly supported over half the back. When everything is adjusted to the upper edge of the belt parallel to the floor, the straps sit comfortably on your shoulders and you only feel only a third of your baby’s weight.
