Here are Wallaby Wraps safety of our children and yours is the utmost priority. We highly recommend you read the following safety information.
We use 100% pure organic cotton broken twill (the optimal weave for baby-wearing). The dyes are heavy metal, formaldehyde and azo free making Wallaby Wraps the most comfortable, safe and natural baby wearing solution.
Everyday Caution while wearing your baby:
- Do not engage in sports or other intense physical activity while using a Wallaby Wrap.
- Always wear shoes that are easy to walk in and look out for uneven surfaces to avoid falling.
- Practice wearing baby or a practice doll with a spotter, either over a bed or couch until confident and comfortable.
- For healthy hip position, a baby should be held with knees higher than bottom with legs in a spread squat position with support from knee to knee.
- We do not recommend you attempt back carries until you are 100% comfortable and confident with front carries.
- We do not recommend wearing your baby in a front-wearing position while cooking or operating machinery.
- Always exercise common sense while baby-wearing. Avoid baby-wearing in situations where it would not be safe to carry an infant in-arms.
How to wear your baby SAFELY:
The T.I.C.K.S. rule can help you remember how to position your baby safely in a baby sling:
- Tight: the sling should be tight, with the baby positioned high and upright with head support. Any loose fabric might cause your baby to slump down, which could restrict her breathing.
- In view at all times: always be able to see your baby’s face by simply looking down. Ensure your baby’s face, nose and mouth remain uncovered by the sling and/or your body.
- Close enough to kiss: your baby should be close enough to your chin that by tipping his head forward you can easily kiss his head.
- Keep chin off the chest: ensure your baby’s chin is up and away from her body. Your baby should never be curled so that her chin is forced onto her chest. This can restrict breathing. Regularly check your baby. Babies can be in distress without making any noise or movement.
- Supported back: your baby’s back should be supported in a natural position with his tummy and chest against you. When bending over, support your baby with one hand behind his back. Bend at the knees, not at the waist.
