When you place your new born baby on your chest and they go to sleep they will draw up their knees, their little bum will be down and their head will rest on your chest. This is the natural position a little baby will take up, so when we carry a baby in a sling we are supporting the natural position of our baby’s body. The seat of the sling should support your baby from the back of one knee to the back of the other knee. The Fabric should support the baby’s spine and reach to the back of their neck and offer adequate head support. The baby should be held high and tight and their head should be close enough for you to easily kiss.
