INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Always Follow Safety Instructions Carefully Always check your carrier’s buckles and stitching prior to each use. Refer to the safety label located on your leather baby carrier for recommended weight ranges and important safety information. We recommend that you register your carrier on our product registration page. The use of structured (buckled) infant carriers for babies under four (4) months of age is controversial. Whilst it is natural and soothing to carry your baby close to your chest, there is a risk of suffocation or injury, particularly in newborns. The ACCC has published safety information for infant carriers that can be found here. It is important to ensure that you can see your baby’s face at all times. It is safest for your baby to have their head to the side. Ensure your baby’s airways are free of obstruction and the chin is elevated from the chest. Keep the straps tight enough to support you baby’s back but loose enough that your baby can breathe easily. To avoid the risk of hip dysplasia, the International Hip Dysplasia Society recommends a frog leg posture where your baby’s legs are spread and their hips well supported in the seat.

Leather Baby Co is a member of the Baby Carrier Industry Alliance (BCIA) and is committed to upholding high standards in safety and security of your precious cargo.
