Banana (foetal position)
Baby can be carried in the sling in the banana position from birth. The baby hears the heartbeat of the sling wearer and is in the fœtal position, reminding him of the cozy womb he just left. The sling is also great for discreet breastfeeding.
The baby sling can also be used as a hammock in the playpen. Gently rocking the hammock to-and-fro will put baby to sleep. Also helpful for babies with colic. The sling can also be used in larger playpens - in this case it should be hung diagonally in a corner. Cot extender is also available, and sold separately.
3 months +
Once baby's back is stronger, the kangaroo position can be used. In this position baby sits facing forward in the sling with feet forward and up high. Baby's head leans against the sling strap.
In the belly sit the baby/toddler sit with their belly against the wearer's belly. Baby's legs come out the bottom of the sling. The sling is a 'seat' with the sling also supporting baby's back. In this position the older the child, the lower the sling can be on their back as they increasingly need less back support.
Toddlers up to 12 kg
Once the toddler's back is strong enough you can use the hipster position. In this position the clasp sits on the chest so that the sling will sit just above your hip. The toddler sits in the sling with legs coming out on either side of the wearer's hip.
