Tips for an ergonomic position of your baby
M-shape tuck-in straddle posture
Make sure that your baby is in the ergonomically correct straddle position. Your baby's knees should be higher than the bottom.
Make sure your baby forms a hunchback to ensure the correct sitting posture.
If you can kiss your baby's head, your baby has the correct seat height.
Bolster and head support in the baby carrier
Depending on how old your baby is and how much he moves, you should position the headrest. When your baby is awake, the headrest acts as a bolster to support the baby's head.
The bolster should reach to the middle of the ear until the baby can control the head and neck well and hold it by itself. The length of the complete back section is adjustable with the help of the back extension.
Use headrest to protect baby from wind and light
When your child is sleeping, you can also use the headrest to keep out light and wind. To do this, simply connect one side to the shoulder strap.
Important: One side must always be open. Also make sure that the baby's airways are clear and that the face is visible.
