FAQ – Chekoh

Chekoh wraps are one of the most lightweight and stretchy wraps on the market. Designed in Australia with the warm summer climate in mind, our wraps are super lightweight and breathable, and with three fabric passes, are perfect for any climate.
Our wraps are shorter in length and slimmer, with tapered ends and less bulk for you to wear. All our wraps are also designed with an ‘inbuilt’ carry pocket on one end, so small you wouldn’t even notice it was there but so effective and practical for storing your wrap while out and about.
Chekoh wraps are designed not only with your style in mind, but also the safety of a secure and comfortable carry for your little one.

Yes, and we definitely encourage it! Babywearing provides a discreet option to nurse your baby, just simply loosen the tie around your waist and re-position your baby so they can attach correctly. For you and baby to nurse comfortably you may need to re-tie your wrap after feeding to position baby securely. As Chekoh wraps are all ‘pre tie’ and do not require you to wrap with your baby in, you can also slide baby out of your wrap and nurse as normal, still wearing your wrap comfortably.  Once your little one is finished feeding, simply ensure your wrap is still tied tight and place baby back in safe and securely.
Our wraps also make the perfect feeding cover, scarf or blanket when you are not wearing it.

As Chekoh wraps contain 5% Spandex, this comfortable stretch makes wearing your baby easier, but it is important that you tie your wrap firmly before placing your baby in. If at anytime you feel your baby has ‘dropped’ or is not held high on your chest (see T.I.C.K.S Guidelines), please remove your baby safely and re-tie your wrap.
Ensure your wrap is TIGHT – the two passes over your shoulder will stretch out to hold baby firm and high without any sagging. Also ensure the centre pass (with Chekoh tag) is firm against your chest so it can provide the correct support.
You should also make sure that each chest ‘pocket’ is spread from knee-to-knee, and baby has their knees bent higher then their bottom so that it creates a nice wide, deep seated squat for baby. This provides the correct support and positioning for a safe and comfortable carry.

It is now recommended and supported by Baby Wearing Consultants worldwide for babies to be carried ‘legs out’ from birth.  Always ensure your baby is supported in a deep ‘M’ squat, with their knees bent above their bottom and both fabric pouches reach from behind the back of each knee for a safe wide seat.  Also always ensure you adhere to the T.I.C.K.S Guidelines for safe babywearing.

Chekoh recommend using your wrap from the moment baby arrives! Babywearing provides the most womb-like environment they could be in. Little bubbas love to be all cuddled in, heart-to-heart, so start carrying your new baby right away.
There are also no belts, buckles, clips, bulky fabrics or padding involved with a Chekoh wrap, just a soft, natural carry hold for your little one.
Chekoh wraps are designed for the first 12 months of baby’s life, with a maximum weight range of up to 12kgs.  Our comfortable four way stretch ensures a firm, snug fit and our fabrics mould to both you and baby ensuring a comfortable fit for everybody.

No. We do not recommend a forward facing carry or back carry when using our wraps.  Please only carry your baby as per the instructions included with your wrap.

Our wraps are designed to be long enough to fit any wearer, even plus size Mums and Dads. Our extra spandex blend fabric allows for a comfortable fit for any shape or size. The size of the wearer only determines how many times the wrap will tie around the waist.

Yes, baby wearing is perfect for your premmie baby, as the snug carry and mama’s heartbeat is the closest environment to inside the womb. Chekoh wraps are stretchy and will mould around both you and baby for a warm, close and organic carry. Always ensure baby is fully supported and airways and face are clear at all times.

No. Due to the stretch and structure of our wraps, they are designed for carrying a single baby only.

Yes, as you tie your wrap under your bust, your baby sits high on your chest. Our fabric is also super soft and the weight of the carry will be distributed evenly on your shoulders and not low or near our pelvic area. Please do take extra care when tying your wrap and keep in mind your wellbeing when wearing your baby.

Yes, that’s the beauty of an adjustable carrier we can assure any plus size wearer up to approx Womens size 20 AUS can carry comfortably with a Chekoh. Smaller wearers find that tucking any extra length left in the tail, up and around the rings to provide a softer support also, so our Slings are a win win whichever size.
