How to take into account the physiology of the baby and carrier?

Here are a number of rules to respect regarding physiology:

What about the facing the world carrying option?

The main advantage of the 'facing the world' carrying option is to open your baby to the environment around it, with an enlarged field of vision, the possibility for your baby to enjoy better sensations, and to be finally placed in the direction of walking. However, the website www.portersonenfant.fr underlines that this carrying mode, which is very common in the western world, also has disadvantages. While it is useful in certain situations, it is recommended to use it with moderation and over short periods. The 'on the hip' variant (from 4 months of age) can also be a good alternative to the 'facing the carrier' position. We refer to it in our instructions section. Think about trying it!

Security instructions:

To enjoy the best carrying conditions, it is important to respect a number of rules and to be attentive to the child's needs:

3-words summary:

POSITION: Carry the baby in a vertical position, with its face "within kissing distance".

BREATHING: Respiratory tracts (nose, mouth) must always be unobstructed and visible to the carrier.

OBSERVATION: The baby must be watched at all times while you are carrying it.

Beyond the rules set out above, whom it is your responsibility to respect, the rest is up to you: you may pick whichever carrying position you prefer, according to you and your baby's needs, for as long as you wish, with the frequency that suits you best: a little, a lot, or passionately…

Size guide

1. WHICH SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE?

Our baby carriers are currently available in two sizes :

 

And since each body is unique, you can try it quietly at home to see if it suits you and if not, you can send it back for a refund ;)

2. THE SIZE IS TOO SMALL - BABY IS TOO SQUASHED

You may experience a feeling of tightness but the goal is ultimately that the baby is held firmly against you and does not move, just like with a classic carrier. For the newborn position, depending on the morphology of the baby and the wearer, it can quickly become restrictive. You can therefore place them into the sitting position early by respecting a physiological position and the natural spacing of the hips.

IMPORTANT : The fabric is softened and relaxed during use and as the baby grows.

3. THE SIZE IS TOO LARGE - BABY IS TOO LOW

Indeed your child should not be too low, or at least the position should remain as comfortable for them as it is for you and should remain in reach for kisses. If this is not the case, you can make a loop with the fabric on each shoulder. You can make a loop by twisting the side of the scarf by reversing the hems so that the fabric is shortened and the baby is lifted slightly ( http://www.portersonenfant.fr/les-porte-bebes/lecharpe-porte-bebe/trucs-astuces-vocabulaire-du-portage-en-echarpe/).

You can also wash your sling (30° in the washing machine) so that the fabric shrinks.
