Most babies love to be carried in a towel. So they are very close to the body and feel safe and warm. But there are some things to keep in mind so that you are really safe with your baby in a sling or a baby carrier.
first Read the Instructions for Use
Most baby slippers and baby carriers come with detailed instructions that you should read carefully before you go to work. First attempts can be started with a doll, so you can avoid accidents. If you are still unsure, just ask the manufacturer or dealer or ask your midwife if she can recommend a course.
second Your baby must have enough air
Your baby's head and face should not be covered by the sling to guarantee the supply of fresh air. If you keep an eye on your baby's face, you can respond quickly whenever necessary.
Pay attention to your baby's body position in the cloth - the spine must be in a straight position (the slightest roundness of the back is best - but never a hollow back). To make sure that your baby can breathe freely and is in the right position, keep your head steady and your back straight.
third Close enough for a peck
Positioning your baby in a sling should be similar to the way you hold it in your arms. Your baby should be close to your chest and his face close to yours.
4th Regular check of the sling
The sling or baby carrier must fit well and protect your baby. Therefore, check again and again in a few steps whether the cloth is still firmly enough tied or the straps and snaps etc. are intact and taut enough in the baby carrier.
5th Not too warm!
Since you carry your baby wrapped in a cloth so close to your body, you must be careful that it does not get too hot or that it is even at risk of dehydration. Choose comfortable, lightweight clothing and respond to thirst signals from your child.
