Adjust the Sling Baby Carrier for a Small Baby
 
The adjustable sling baby carrier is an extremely versatile and useful tool, however you must remember that while the sling is worn, your baby is not. Your baby should be held and cradled and this tool is an aid to bear the weight of the child while the caregiver carries on with some of the easier required tasks around the home.
 
While doing this, you must take meticulous care to see to your baby's health and comfort as always. You must be sure to see your baby's face and check breathing and circulation.
 
I desire for the shopper to be informed and to weigh carefully the options for any of the tools and equipment that are used to care for your child, just as you would consider their nutrition.Be informed and make the purchase that is best for you and for your baby. *** See statement from Consumer Product Safety Commission.
 
These instructions show you how the size of the cradle can be adjusted for a small baby.

Figure 2: Here you can see that the cradle is huge, because it is adjusted for a larger child. If I put the newborn baby in there, she is lost.  She will likely curl up on herself and her breathing may be inhibited.  You are also unable to keep a watchful eye on her.

Figure 3: If I open the length of fabric hanging from the rings and pull it down right in the center, the cradle becomes far more shallow.

Figure 5: ...and pull the cradle completely under her head. I tug I little on the right side of the fabric to pull up the outside seam making a snug and supportive cradle.  The head is elevated and not curling forward; the back and neck are supported.

Figure 6: And this is about what it looks like to hold a tiny little newborn baby close in the carrier.  ALWAYS WATCH FOR YOUR CHILD'S BREATHING AND CHECK THAT THE CARRIER IS IN GOOD CONDITION.


If you plan on nursing, you can loosen (lower) the inside under the breast, tighten up in the middle and the outside to turn the baby slightly and place the extension of fabric over the child and no one knows you’re nursing.  As always, make sure that the child's nose is not covered by the breast and that he is body and neck are straight for clear digestion.
