Carrying your baby
The different ways of carrying
- Hammocks or slings: rectangular pieces of cloth, the ends of which are drawn together by rings, baby slings are designed so that you can carry your baby asymmetrically on your hip. They take up very little space and are easy-to-use. You can keep one in your handbag for when your baby needs a little unscheduled carrying.
- Classic or "kangaroo" baby carriers: very easy to slip on, they are convenient but do not respect the natural position of babies who rest on their genitals with their back straight and legs dangling. Hence, it is better not to use them for more than 30 minutes at a time.
- Physiological baby carriers: they have the same practical advantages of classic baby carriers, but they allow your baby to be installed in his physiological position which is more comfortable and better for the development of his hips. Their wide padded straps and adjustable straps enable you to carry your child very comfortably.
- Carrying wraps: long panel of fabric (2.5 m to more than 5 m) in a special weave, wraps are the most adaptable form of carrying. By varying how you tie them, they allow you to carry your baby on your belly, hip or back or even lying down as in a hammock during the first few months. With its customisable adjustability you will find carrying extremely comfortable as soon as you master the art of tying it!
- Chinese or "Mei Tai" baby carriers: rectangular pieces of fabric with four straps in the corners, they enable installing baby with ease against your abdomen or back. When folded they take up very little space.
