Safety Tips

T.I.C.K.S. FOR SAFETY

TIGHT

Make sure baby is pressed tightly against your body, this will ensure baby will not slump down and have their airway restricted. 

IN VIEW

You should always be able to see your baby's face simply by glancing down. The fabric should not close around baby's face so that you have to open it to check on them.

CLOSE ENOUGH TO KISS

Baby’s head should be as close to your chin as is comfortable. By tipping your head forward you should be able to kiss your baby on the head or forehead.

KEEP CHIN OFF CHEST

Baby should never be curled so their chin is forced onto their chest as this can restrict their breathing. Ensure there is always a space of at least a finger width under your baby’s chin.

SUPPORTED BACK 

Baby should be held comfortably close to you so their back is supported in its natural position and their tummy and chest are against you. If a sling is too loose they can slump which can partially close their airway.
