One Wrap, 6 Different Positions

by Tiffany Joyce Ng Tuazon 08 Feb 2017

Get ready to enter the world where hands-free is a possibility. Here are the sizing instructions for each recommended position in your Baby K'tan Baby Carrier.

Kangaroo Position 

For use from newborn up to about 3 months old

 

Helpful Tips: Babywearing in the Kangaroo Position

Try your carrier when baby is fed, rested and in a good mood. If baby is fussing, calmly take him/her out and try again later.

Your baby will let you know when he/she is ready to move out of the Kangaroo Position by stretching his/her legs and trying to "stand up" in the fabric. At this point you can begin to use the Hug Position. Many babies may prefer to skip the Kangaroo Position all-together and begin right away with the Hug Position. For helpful tips on wearing a newborn in the Hug Position, see this user submitted video.

Baby can sense your mood. If you are stressed, baby will sense this & will also be stressed! Keep practicing and stay calm :)

Practice before you begin. Try your carrier with a weighted doll or sack of potatoes. Practice bending (bend your knees), moving through doorways (watch out for his "head"!), and getting "baby" in and out of the carrier. Most accidents involving babywearing are due to the wearer tripping and falling, so it's important to develop the reflex of holding and protecting your baby when something unexpected happens. Going through the motions in advance can really help with this.
Always watch your step. Your balance can be affected while wearing baby in a carrier.
Support baby. When you start wearing your baby, support him/her with your arm until you are confident. Always support baby whenever you bend over.
Practice in front of a mirror. Using a mirror will help you see how the fabric is adjusted and how baby is positioned. 
Swap positions. Sitting in the same position for a long period of time can be uncomfortable. Physical therapists recommend changing baby's positions every so often, especially if you are wearing him/her for long periods of time. Use your instincts and follow baby's cues.

Build up your endurance. This happens naturally if your baby is still small. If you are starting out with an older baby, try a few short sessions each day rather than one long one. Gradually increase the duration as your muscles adjust.
