You can try the following suggestions: Cross back carry – Cross the shoulder straps over and then fasten the buckles at the side. Ensure shoulder and sides are fully adjusted. Ensure the waist strap is fully adjusted to the tightest setting – this involves overlapping the lumber support tab with the waist strap.
The CONNECT™ Plus has two different coloured markers on the top of the carrier body where the shoulder straps secure to the carrier. The same coloured markers are also located on the top of the shoulder straps. Align the corresponding coloured markers on the top of the carrier body to the colour located at the top of the carrier strap.
The buttons on the accessories will be a tight to start with. They will loosen the more the product is used. The tightness at the beginning of using the accessories has been purposefully designed to ensure they do not loosen over time and disconnect unintentionally.
You can try the following suggestions: Ensure the baby is positioned correctly in the carrier by propping their weight upwards using your hands whilst still ensuring their legs are comfortably in the ‘M’ position. Position the carrier waist belt higher on your waist. Ensuring all straps are adjusted to support a higher seating position. Use the newborn configuration in the carrier. The recommended weight is 3.2 – 7kg for this configuration.
We recommend adjusting the back buckle for comfortable wearing when setting up the carrier for comfortable wearing the first time you put it on. This can be done by adjusting the buckle and putting the carrier on to check for comfort, and then removing the carrier and adjusting and so on until you reach the desire setting. This will only need to be done the first time you put the carrier on and adjusted from time to time as your child grows. You can also have another person assist you once th...
The buckles have been designed to require a double action release. This ensures they do not accidentally become undone by knocking during movement or by your child. To release, press both sides of the buckle firmly and push downwards from the direction they are secured to unhook it from the fasteners. This can be done easily using two hands; One to hold the fabric with the fastener and the other on the buckle to support the downwards pressure.
Once you have the main buckle in place, we recommend securing the shoulder straps in place with the press stuck to avoid side to side movement.
Attaching accessories such as the Rain Cover, Storage Bag and UPF50+ Sunshade. These items can roll into themselves neatly and be hooked onto the buttons on the left-hand side. There are also small loops in the waist band’s left-hand pockets which can be used to secure keys to or other important items with a keyring.
As all babies grow at different rates. Rather than ages, we refer to weights to guide the correct usage of the carriers. The CONNECT™ Plus carrier can be used for babies between 3.2kg to 20kg.

The straps on the CONNECT™ Plus carrier have been designed to be as light and breathable as possible, removing all unnecessary bulk which is on other carriers. This means the straps have movement. Like all new products, it can take time to get used to using and becoming familiar with how it works.

If you find the carrier straps are too light, use the removable should...
