Even with an "emergency" carrier, we still care about the safety and ergonomics of your babywearing adventure, so make sure your baby is always supported from knee-to-knee and all across their back with knees at hip level or higher! Learn more at our "What's a Pelvic Tuck?" blog post!
Complimentary fit consultation
Still can't quite figure it out or just want to confirm that your baby is ergonomically positioned and comfortable? We want you to have the best, safest, most comfortable, and magical experience wearing your little one! Schedule your complimentary one-on-one video call with our babywearing educator!
This will be amazingly snug and comfortable but remember — it’s a new experience for both you and your baby!
Make sure that baby is well-fed and not overtired when you first start using the carrier. Try practicing in front of the mirror.
If baby starts getting fussy, just take a deep breath and a few steps around the room until you’re both ready to continue.
Once positioned correctly, your baby should be snug against your body, high on your chest, enabling you to stand normally, just as if you were holding them in your arms.
