The T.I.C.K.S. Rules for Safe Babywearing

.Keep your baby close and keep your baby safe. When you are wearing a sling or carrier, don't forget the T.I.C.K.S!

T - Tight - Slings and carriers should be tight enough to hug your baby close to you, as this will be most comfortable for you both...

I - In view at all times - You should always be able to see your baby's face by simpling glancing down...

C - Close enough to kiss - Your baby's head should be as close to your chin as is comfortable...

K - Keep chin off the chest - A baby should never be curled so their chin is forced onto their chest, as this can restrict their breathing...

S - Supported back - In an upright carrier a baby should be held comfortably close to the wearer so their back is supported in its natural position and their tummy and chest are against you... 


Correct Positioning Explained

Babies are born with a c-shaped spine called the total kyphosis. The spine takes about one year to straighten it is really important during this time when baby is carried that the spine is fully supported in this natural position and no excess pressure in place on one particular place. Baby should be carried in the correct physiological position “frog legged position” i.e. their bottom is lower than their knees. There should be at least a 90 degree angle at the knee .This is important for baby’s developing hips as it reduces the weight and strain placed on them. This position can be achieved by spreading the wide fabric all the way to the back of baby’s knees.
