In the first months of life it is important to establish an intensive bond with the baby. The best way to do this is through a lot of closeness and close physical contact. But what if you'd rather have your hands free in everyday life? It's got to be a baby sling or a sling.
Slings are available in different lengths. Here you should read with the respective product for which body size (here your own is meant) and up to which weight the cloth is suitable. With slings, it depends on the binding technique. This way you achieve the same comfort and a pleasant wearing comfort as with baby carriers. You are also flexible when it comes to slings: Do you want to carry your baby on your stomach, on your back or rather on your hips? All this is possible with the right binding technique. If the complex tying process is too complicated for you, so-called ring sling slings may be a solution. Here the binding is facilitated by rings. And finally: When the little ones really get bigger and you go on your first hiking tours, we also have high quality baby carriers from Deuter, Thule and Kiddy in the category baby carriers. Here the little ones feel very comfortable and are still protected from wind and weather.
In general, carrying aids are recommended for the first nine months or up to a weight of about fifteen kilograms. On the fundamental question of whether you want to carry the child forward or facing you, the spirits divide. In the first few months, eye contact with the baby can help enormously and give it more security. In addition, experts say that this way the spine is not stretched. The older your treasure grows, the happier he may be about the new impressions around him and the more he likes to look ahead. It is important that babies up to the age of about three to four months have to sit in the so-called M position. The M-position is the natural holding position of babies - the knees should be a little higher than the bottom and at the height of the navel. This "squat spread posture" is very important for a natural leg position and a healthy development of the hip joints. In the beginning, adjustable head and neck supports are important so that the little head doesn't bend and the baby really lies close to the body.
