How to wrap your sling and pop baby in
*If your especially worried about carrying a newborn and how to best support his head, there are a couple of ways you can do so:
If baby has his head to the side, resting his cheek on your chest, then simply place the shoulder panel over the back of his head to support (Pink wrap).
If your baby prefers to sleep facing forward, then roll a muslin into a log shape and roll it into the top of the front panel, so that it supports the back of baby’s neck (Plum wrap).

How to keep your baby as safe as possible.
- Keep the sling nice and taut- too much fabric and the baby will not be totally supported, or their heads could end up resting on their chest, which may compromise the airway. Too tight and baby will not get enough fresh air circulating across their face. You should be able to put two fingers between the babys chin and chest.
- Baby should be high enough for you to be able to kiss her head.
- Take care when walking as babys head may obstruct the view of the floor directly in front of your feet- be aware of any clutter, stairs, other children etc.
- Do not cook or iron with baby in sling due to the risk of accidents.
An easy way to remember the safety guideline is by using the acronym TICKS:
