Wearing your baby during the first year of their life has so many incredible benefits. Not only are you able to be hands-free, having baby close provides a womb-like feeling for bub. This leads to help in settling, bonding and positive development for baby. Having baby upright in the Carrier can also assist with alleviating colic and reflux symptoms. We are mums too, and created these Carriers because we know. We’ve got you!
Wrap Carrier: Best suited for use in the first year, the Wrap Carrier is recommended for babies 3-10kg. We find it most useful in the first 6-8 months as it really gives you a ‘hands free’ capacity and a womb-like environment for baby. If your baby is under 3kg, we recommend discussing the use with your Doctor and/or Midwife.
Ring Sling: The Ring Sling is also suitable for the newborn period, however, can be used for babies from 3-15kg. You can use the Ring Sling to support older babies when carrying them on your hip. If your baby is under 3kg, we recommend discussing the use with your Doctor and/or Midwife.
Wrap Carrier: Feeling secure is super important. When wearing the Wrap Carrier, you must ensure you have it on firmly, with a secure double knot.
Ring Sling: Feeling secure is super important. The Ring Sling must be worn firmly and have the fabric fed through the rings properly, as shown in our instructions.
Wrap Carrier: We have designed our Wrap Carrier to be generous, without the fabric being too long. This makes them a ‘OSFA’ style of carrier. The Wrap Carrier can be tied to fit securely on many different body sizes and shapes. Whilst normally we would tie at the front, you can secure them at the back to give extra length if needed.
Ring Sling: We have designed our Ring Sling to be generous, without the fabric being too long. This makes them a ‘OSFA’ style of carrier. The Ring Sling can be looped and secured at different lengths to fit securely on many different body sizes and shapes.
Please be aware of our return policy, should you feel the fit isn’t right for you.
