READ WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE PLACING CHILD IN BABY CARRIER. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS CAN RESULT IN DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY.

See additional tips on how to wear the Baby K'tan Baby Carrier correctly Here.

• THE BABY K’TAN BABY CARRIER (”BABY K’TAN” OR ”CARRIER”) IS NOT A CAR SEAT OR A BICYCLE SEAT. NEVER WEAR YOUR CHILD IN THE CARRIER WHILE TRAVELING IN A MOTORIZED VEHICLE OF ANY TYPE OR RIDING A BICYCLE, SKATEBOARD OR ENGAGING IN ANY SIMILAR ACTIVITY. IN THE EVENT OF AN ACCIDENT OR FALL, YOUR CHILD WOULD NOT BE RESTRAINED AND COULD BE SERIOUSLY INJURED OR KILLED.

SUFFOCATION HAZARD - THE BABY K’TAN BABY CARRIER IS NOT TO BE USED FOR A CHILD WEIGHING LESS THAN 8 POUNDS OR MORE THAN 35 POUNDS. ENSURE INFANT’S FACE IS ABOVE THE FABRIC; VISIBLE AND FREE FROM OBSTRUCTIONS AT ALL TIMES. USE EXTRA CAUTION WHEN WEARING A BABY THAT IS AT GREATER RISK OF SUFFOCATION. BABIES AT GREATER RISK OF SUFFOCATION INCLUDE THOSE BORN PREMATURELY, THOSE WITH RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS AND THOSE UNDER FOUR MONTHS OF AGE. ENSURE THE BABY DOES NOT CURL INTO A “C” POSITION WITH THE CHIN RESTING ON OR NEAR THE CHEST. THIS POSITION CAN INTERFERE WITH BREATHING, EVEN IF BABY’S NOSE AND/OR MOUTH ARE NOT COVERED.

• IF USING THE SLING WHILE BREASTFEEDING, ALWAYS MOVE THE BABY’S FACE AWAY FROM THE BREAST AFTER THE BABY IS DONE FEEDING.

• WHILE WEARING YOUR CHILD IN THE CARRIER, CHECK OFTEN TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR CHILD IS NOT TOO HOT, THE FABRIC FITS SNUGLY BUT NOT TOO TIGHT, AND THAT YOUR CHILD IS POSITIONED AT OR CLOSE TO YOUR CHEST AND IS SECURE IN THE CARRIER. IF THE CARRIER DOES NOT FIT SNUGLY OVER YOU AND YOUR CHILD OR FEELS TOO TIGHT, DISCONTINUE USE OF THE CARRIER; YOU MAY NEED A DIFFERENT SIZE.

• DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CHILD IN THE BABY K’TAN AFTER YOU HAVE REMOVED THE CARRIER. DO NOT PUT YOUR CHILD IN A CRIB, PLAY AREA OR OTHERWISE LEAVE HIM/HER UNATTENDED WHILE STILL IN THE CARRIER. A CHILD COULD STRANGLE OR SUFFOCATE IN THE FABRIC IF LEFT UNATTENDED.

• NEVER PLACE MORE THAN ONE BABY IN THE SLING CARRIER. NEVER USE/WEAR MORE THAN ONE CARRIER AT A TIME.

FALL HAZARD - LEANING, BENDING OVER, OR TRIPPING CAN CAUSE BABY TO FALL OUT OF THE CARRIER. KEEP ONE HAND ON BABY WHILE MOVING AT ALL TIMES. FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER’S RECOMMENDED WEIGHT RANGE WHEN USING THIS CARRIER. ONLY USE THIS CARRIER FOR CHILDREN BETWEEN 8 LB. AND 35 LB. NEVER USE THIS CARRIER FOR A PRETERM INFANT WITHOUT SEEKING THE ADVICE OF A HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL. SMALL CHILDREN CAN FALL THROUGH LEG OPENINGS. ADJUST LEG OPENINGS TO FIT BABY’S LEGS SNUGLY. CHILD MUST FACE TOWARDS YOU UNTIL HE OR SHE CAN HOLD HIS/HER HEAD UPRIGHT.

• WHEN WEARING YOUR CHILD IN THE CARRIER MOVE CAREFULLY AROUND DOORWAYS, SHARP EDGES, HOT OBJECTS AND ANYTHING ELSE THAT COULD POTENTIALLY INJURE YOUR CHILD. DO NOT DRINK HOT BEVERAGES OR COOK WHILE WEARING YOU CHILD IN THE CARRIER.

• UNTIL YOUR CHILD HAS SUFFICIENT HEAD AND NECK CONTROL ONLY THE “KANGAROO” AND “HUG” POSITIONS (INWARD FACING POSITIONS) MAY BE USED. DO NOT CARRY CHILD IN ANY OF THE OTHER CARRYING POSITIONS UNTIL YOUR CHILD CAN HOLD HIS/HER HEAD UPRIGHT UNASSISTED. THE “HIP” POSITION MAY NOT BE USED BEFORE YOUR CHILD IS ABLE TO SIT UP UNASSISTED. WHEN YOU ARE WEARING YOUR CHILD IN THE “HIP” POSITION, KEEP ONE ARM ENCIRCLING YOUR CHILD’S BACK AT ALL TIMES FOR SUPPORT AND BALANCE.

• THE BABY K’TAN IS DESIGNED FOR USE BY ADULTS WHEN WALKING OR SITTING ONLY. THE CARRIER IS NOT TO BE USED WHILE PARTICIPATING IN STRENUOUS ACTIVITY OR SPORTS. NEVER LIE DOWN WITH YOUR CHILD IN THE CARRIER. THE CARRIER SHOULD NOT BE WORN BY PERSONS WHO ARE EXPERIENCING OR ARE PRONE TO BACK PROBLEMS.

• NETHER BABY K’TAN, LLC, NOR ITS AFFILIATES, DISTRIBUTORS, WHOLESALERS OR RETAILERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ACCIDENTS OR INJURIES THAT OCCUR FROM IMPROPER USE OF THE CARRIER OR USE THAT IS NOT RECOMMENDED BY BABY K’TAN, LLC OR AS A RESULT OF ANY SUBSEQUENT ALTERATION OR MODIFICATION TO THE CARRIER.

• BEFORE EVERY USE, MAKE SURE THAT THE FABRIC AND SEAMS OF THE CARRIER ARE IN GOOD CONDITION. IF THERE ARE WORN AREAS OF FABRIC, RIPS, LOOSE SEAMS OR OTHER VISIBLE SIGNS OF DAMAGE OR DETERIORATION TO THE CARRIER, DISCONTINUE USE OF THE CARRIER.
