Introduce Baby Sling Hip position when baby has full head & body control (about 5+ months)



Put both loops together to form a cirle.   Put both loops over your head like a necklace (with support band at the back of your neck).   Place one arm through BOTH loops and then layer one loop over the other.

Stretch open the fabric of the carrier at your side so it forms a hammock-like seat.   Lift child up and place him/her in the Carrier with legs straddling your hip. Tip: child’s shoulders and arms may be free of the fabric.   Make sure the fabric covers baby’s bottom up to under his/her knees and is spead over his/her back.

Helpful Tips
If your baby does not like being in the Baby K'tan carrier, calmly take them out and try again later. Babies can sense a wearer's hesitation. If you are stressed, your baby will sense this and will also be stressed. Keep practicing and stay calm. Ensure that the fabric is spread wide - reaching the bend in baby's knees - to create a comfortable and secure seat.
Now that your baby is in the Baby K'tan Baby Carrier, it is time for a safety check.
