The Hug Position can be introduced when baby begins to stretch/extend their legs (generally 2+ months)


Continue below after following Getting Started Instructions

Hold your baby securely against your body facing inward (towards you).   Place the inner loop between your baby’s legs and pull it over baby’s shoulder. Spread it open to create a comfortable seat for baby.   Place your arm through the outer loop (at your waist). Pull it up between baby’s legs, over baby’s shoulder and onto your shoulder.

Reach behind your back and slide the support band down so that the loops cross at the center of your back for optimal back support.   Adjust both layers of fabric between baby’s legs so that they form a comfortable seat for your baby.   Tie sash tightly around your waist and your baby for extra security and additional back support. Sash must be used.

Adjust fabric on your shoulders so that it is comfortable.

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 seat.
Now that your baby is in the Baby K'tan Baby Carrier, it is time for a safety check.
