Choose the appropriate size of pouch carrier (See sizing info here). A pouch that is too small will be uncomfortable and small babies may have difficulty breathing when being carried in it. A baby could fall out of a pouch that is too big.
Do not use a pouch carrier with a baby who is restless, uncooperative, or who tries to climb out.
Practice before using your pouch. Practice while sitting or kneeling and when baby is content (rested, fed, burped and clean-diapered).
Always hold onto your baby when you are bending and leaning.
Bend with your knees whenever possible.
Inspect your pouch before each use to ensure all seams are intact and there is no damage to the fabric. If there are any questionable areas, do not use it.
Refrain from activities that could potentially harm your baby while using your pouch.
Some examples of these activities include: riding a bike, playing sports, using fitness equipment, and handling potentially dangerous items (hot drinks, knives, chemicals, etc.). Always be aware of what is within your child’s reach.
Make slight adjustments to baby’s position every 15 minutes or so to avoid prolonged pressure to any specific areas.
When carrying a newborn in the cradle carry, make sure pouch fabric is away from baby’s face and that her head is in a neutral position, in line with the rest of her body. Baby’s head should not be tilted forward or back. Proper positioning of your newborn will ensure that she is able to breathe properly. Sometimes it is helpful to place a folded blanket against baby's back to help keep her head aligned. Check your newborn frequently to make sure she is breathing easily.
