Like any childcare product that accompanies parents and baby during the first weeks, (beds, car seat, stroller, ...) some safety rules are important to know and respect with a baby carrier..
- POSITION: Carry the baby in an upright position, his face "within reach of a kiss".
- RESPIRATION: The respiratory tract (nose, mouth) must be clear and always visible to the wearer. Chin up.
- OBSERVATION: The baby must be observed during the whole carrying time.
- The baby should not be too covered. (winter and summer)
- The baby's chin should not rest on his chest.
- Baby should not be lying down.
- Baby should not be worn too low.
- Be vigilant about the baby's volume when going through doors and openings.
- The wrap does not replace a car seat.
- Do not sleep while carrying your child.
The wrap is designed to carry a Baby. The sling must be used in an environment that does not present any danger and allows the wearer to be ATTENTION and ATTENTIVE to the Baby and his position.
Do NOT use the sling within the framework of the practice of sporting, mechanical, aquatic activities or any other activity which does not favor the attention of the baby.
Rules of comfort and physiological position:
A - The Baby's head must be in line with his spine:
Not leaning too far forward, or back, or to the side.
Not too turned to the side.
Be sure to alternate sides, supports.
B - The wrap must be properly adjusted. If you have to support the Baby with your hands, the sling is not properly adjusted. Refer to the instructions, to the videos on the Love Radius site, in the Facebook Users' Corner.
C - Dress the good parts of the child:
Do not over-dress the child: cover him "like at home".
Protect its extremities from the cold and the sun (gloves, slippers, hats, sun protection).
Pay attention to the folds of the clothes, to ensure good circulation.
D - Hydrate at will (bottle, breastfeeding).
E - The Baby must be seated-squatted, knees at navel level, lower back slightly rounded.
