When Baby wearing it’s very important to follow the T.I.C.K.S rules, which are:
T: Tight – The carrier should be tight enough to hug your baby close to you
I: In View At All Times – You should be able to see your baby’s face by simply 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 Of The Chest – Your 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 carry a baby should be held comfortably to the wearer so their back is supported in its natural position ‘C’ Shape and their tummy and chest are against you. Check your baby in the carrier frequently to monitor your baby’s breathing and ensure your baby’s airways are always open. The safest position is for your baby’s face to be turned away from your body with their chin away from their chest.
