Tying the elastic baby sling
Even if it seems terribly complicated at first: Tying a sling is like tying shoes, after a while you can do it in your sleep! Our instructions will help you. Basically, you can do less wrong than you might think. In order for your baby's hips to mature properly, your baby's legs should be in what is called the 'squat and spread' or M-position, i.e. the knees are drawn up and spread at about the level of your baby's belly button. To keep the legs in this position, the fabric should always reach from the back of the knee to the back of the knee. In addition, your baby's back should be well supported so that you can bend forward and your baby keeps body contact - you should support the little head. To make it especially easy for you, we have put together a video with tips and tricks in addition to the tying instructions. If you have any questions, we will be happy to give you advice and support, or we can arrange for a local babywearing counsellor to accompany you on your first steps into the world of babywearing.
Especially suitable for premature and newborn babies
The elastic baby slings are particularly suitable for premature and newborn babies. The soft/elastic fabric keeps the baby snuggled up to you. After birth, babies are used to their mother's body contact, body heat and body odour.
Our elastic baby slings do not need any elastane at all. Because the fabric is knitted and not woven, it gives way in one direction, making it particularly fluffy around your baby. Children who react sensitively to pressure with counter-pressure are particularly well off in the elastic sling. Since there are always three layers of fabric spread over your child's back, sufficient support is provided. The sewn edges provide an extra portion of stability.
