How to use your Coracor baby carrier

The first time you use your Coracor sling , it is easier if the child is fed, rested and freshly changed. This routine may take a few times before it feels comfortable for you and your baby. Give it some time, it's faster to get the technique than you might think at first. Wash the sling according to the washing instructions before using it for the first time.

To carry safely

Carrying your baby in a wrap is a wonderful way to experience the world together. It is important to carry safely. We recommend that you keep a few things in mind when carrying your baby.

Attention. Always have full supervision over your child and his breathing, you should easily be able to see your child's face and be able to check that he has a clear airway. The wrap should never cover the child's face and the child should have good air circulation. A good way to ensure free airways is to ensure that there is always at least two fingers' width between the child's chin and chest. Check that your child is warm enough.

Position. The child should be placed in an upright squatting position, where the child's knees are higher than the bottom, and the child's pelvic floor is angled towards you. Always support the child's neck until the child can hold their head up by themselves, and always support the child's head when bending or leaning. Ensure that the child is securely attached to the wrap, to eliminate the risk of it falling out. An easy way to check this is to release your hands and feel so that it feels safe and secure with the child in the wrap.

Vicinity. The wrap should sit tight and it should support both your back, and the child's back and thighs (from knee fold to knee fold). The child should be very close to you, in this way the carrying is comfortable and ergonomic for both of you. You can check the tension by placing a hand and pressing gently on the child's back. The child should then not be lifted or moved closer to you. If the wrap is not tight enough, the child may sag, which may cause obstruction to the child's breathing or strain your back. The child should have a naturally slightly rounded back in the wrap. Check that the fabric is smooth over the child's back and that his head is in line with the rest of his body.

Height. The baby's head should be as close to your chin as is comfortable. When you can easily bend your head forward and kiss the baby's head or forehead, the baby is correctly positioned at a good height. Remember that a small child wants to have his hands close to his face.
