As with any type of baby carrier, always inspect your Beco Baby Carrier for damage before using and follow all instructions. Never perform any task that could be dangerous with your child in the Beco Baby Carrier. Use common sense! Always double check that the buckles are connected properly. Never unbuckle the waist belt while the baby is in the carrier. By purchasing this product, you acknowledge that the Manufacturer or Distributor accepts no responsibility for injury/damage due to the use/misuse of this product. Your child’s safety is your responsibility. Be sure you have help getting your baby into and out of the Beco Baby Carrier until you become comfortable with it. If you are starting out with babywearing, do so over a soft surface such as a bed, sofa or carpeted floor covered with a blanket.
Please support your baby with a hand or two while you and your baby are getting used to the sling. You and your baby will become more comfortable in time and you’ll be able to free one or both of your hands. Please, DON’T GIVE UP! Babywearing takes practice just like all other parenting tasks. You can make the process easier by making sure that baby is fed, rested and happy before you try the carrier the first few times. Also, be sure to pull the top rim of fabric up to cover the entire back of your baby to avoid a “backdive.” Never wear your baby when cycling or riding in the car. While cooking at the stove, use only back carry position. A sling doesn’t substitute for a car seat. When bending, please bend at the knees, not at the waist, and hold the baby with one hand while reaching with the other. Never drink HOT beverages when wearing baby, although your sling will come handy for eating, especially in restaurants.
Any Beco Baby Carrier is one size carrier and will fit most parents between 5 and 6 feet, babies newborn to toddler (7-35lbs for the Gemini, 20-60lbs for the Toddler, 7-35 for the Ring Sling).
Wash on DELICATE/WARM cycle with a mild detergent. Hang dry in well ventilated area or tumble dry on low and remove when seams are still damp. Spot clean when needed. Do not wash frequently. Machine wash with mild detergent on delicate cycle. Air dry carrier. Spot clean as needed. Please avoid frequent washing.
The wide-set position of your child’s legs is actually very comfortable and even healthy. It is also how your baby spent many weeks in the womb- knees bent, hips spread open. In the end, the ultimate rule of thumb is how your baby acts. If your little one is snuggled up close to you or Mom, sleeping or very content, you can be assured that he is comfortable and happy. As I’m sure you know, our babies can tell us when they are unhappy!
All of our products are adjustable so you can breastfeed while wearing your baby. Adjustable straps on our soft structured carriers make a discreet breastfeeding possible anywhere you go. You can also adjust the fabric in the ring sling to allow you to breastfeed your little one.
