The carrier can begin to be used immediately after the birth of the baby, focusing on its weight. Some companies range from 3.2 kg to 20 kg.
Carrying on average weighs up to a kilogram, folds compactly, does not take up much space in luggage. The product must be certified.
Well, when there are additional recommendations from physicians.
The most suitable material is cotton. There are also models made of mesh material with increased air exchange, suitable for a warm and hot climate or for physical activity.
Stitches are needed reinforced for greater safety. In the most important places of attachment of the elements of the backpack to each other (for example, shoulder straps) there is an additional stitching for safety.
Of the accessories is not an extra detail – a hood that protects from the sun, from noise, from unnecessary attention.
The most important thing is the close contact of the child and the parent, which has a beneficial effect on the psyche and development. There are results of medical studies confirming that babies who are from birth in close proximity to their mother / father, body to body, grow more calm and emotionally developed.
No less important is the fact that the body of the baby in carriers carries the most ergonomic, that is, natural fit. In a high-quality backpack, the child is in the same position as in the arms of the mother.
The load on the back of the parent is also reduced.
The legs take the m-shaped position: knees bent, divorced at a certain angle and are just below the level of the priests. Such a posture naturally develops the hip joints.
The correct position of the back is extremely important for children, most recently born. If in adults the spine is S-shaped, in children it is C-shaped.
Similarly, the back of the backpack is done. Of course, head support is required.
The third necessary condition is the closest contact with the body of the mother or father. Gaps will not allow to distribute the load on the child evenly, and his spine and hip department is completely unnecessary.
The child must partially lie on the body of an adult. And in no case do not take a position not physiological for this age – sitting on the pope.
The first few months of the baby can only be worn to face you. It is important that in this position the child feels safe and does not experience an excess of information from the outside.
He is simply not ready for this volume. If something attracts attention, the baby can easily turn his head to the side and look.
And then again bury your nose in mom or dad.
By 4–5 months old, a child can be turned to face the world. There are also options: on the hip and behind the back of an adult.
But you can wear the baby behind your back after six months. With age, he becomes heavier, and his parents, moving him from chest to corners, lighten his burden.
In this position, the child feels freer. The option on the back like active parents, lovers of hiking, traveling where the stroller and not drive.
