Since the baby carrier's fabrics and components have been transported and manipulated several times during manufacturing and its straps more slippery when brand new, the baby carrier should be washed before its first use. We recommend washing it by hand using no rince soap and hanging it to dry. The baby carrier should not be ironed. You can use sucking pads to avoid washing it every day.
Linen is a strong, lightweight, and breathable fabric. It will keep its properties even after being washed many times, The strenght of its fibers makes it an excellent choice for a baby carrier.
Carrying your baby tummy to tummy is a position where the baby is held in a crouched position and is the most adequate method for carrying a newborn at least up to the age of 4 months. Your baby's back is kept well-rounded, as if still in the womb, while his knees are pulled upwards and his feet pointing down. This position is the same as when practicing skin-to-skin with your baby, which becomes possible as soon as he is at least 8 pounds, safely and easily. This crouched position will give him the comfort necessary to his sense of emotional security and is known to be beneficial to the development of his bones and joints. From 0-1 months you can leave baby’s legs folded inside the baby carrier. As soon as the baby begins to extend his legs and push into the bottom of the carrier, his legs should come out on either side.
Before the age of 6 months, applying tension in the middle of the baby's back needs to be avoided. When connecting the horizontal extension, make sure not to tighten the straps too much.
Starting at 6 months and when your baby can sit by himself, his spine is sturdy enough to no longer need back support. Should your baby feel constrained, too warm or in need of some freedom of movement, thanks to the HipGö you can remove the shoulder straps. You can also use the side fasteners instead of the belt's.
You can start carrying your baby on your hip as soon as he can hold up his head. This is an intermediate position which will give both you and your baby greater freedom of movement than on the tummy. Remember that without a baby carrier, we naturally carry a baby by holding him on our hip using one arm.
As soon as your baby can sit by himself and by keeping your arm around him to prevent him from falling backward. This can also be done without shoulder straps with the use of the HipGö. This will lighten your arms' burden and let you be more at ease in your activities. Carrying your baby without shoulder straps will also ensure your baby more comfort in warmer weather and added freedom of movement.
As soon as you feel comfortable doing it, your baby can be carried on your back. We nonetheless recommend to wait until he is at least 6 months old or that he can sit by himself so as to avoid all risks of injury or suffocation. With his weight properly distributed on your back, shoulders and hips, this carrying position is more comfortable, especially as he grows and becomes heavier. It will give you more freedom in your activities, allowing you to do more demanding tasks without putting your child at risk.
This carrying position needs your baby to be able to hold his head up by himself. It should be said that this position is not ideal, as it is less ergonomical than tummy-to-tummy and can be overly stimulating for your baby. Should you still like to use this position, keep its use to periods of 20 to 30 minutes at most and regularly verify your baby's blood flow to his legs. This is done by observing the colour of his skin, which should be pinkish rather than blueish. Should his feet get cold, this could also be a sign of difficulties with his blood circulation and you should set him in a different position. Make sure that his back is neither too flat nor too round, thus creating a bad inverted lumbar curve. Finally, his legs should not be hanging too low: to correct his position, tilt his pelvis as far forward as possible to move his knees as high up as possible and deepen his seating. There are two ways to position your baby facing out to the world, either with his legs inside the baby carrier or out and visible on either side.
The EvöLin is an innovative system allowing you to carry your baby in a position favourable to his development, from birth to early childhood. Its design is science-based and inspired by traditional fabric baby carriers known for their versatility, comfort, and the reassuring embrace of their wrap. Its natural linen, reknowned for its antimicrobial and thermoregulating qualities, is soft on a baby's skin and ideal in every season to carry him inside and outside of the house.
The HipGö horizontal extension system allows a more ergonomic carrying for a newborn and makes the HipGö position possible. This strapless position frees the arms from the baby's weight without keeping the baby too tightly against the carrier's body. The HipGö also makes the transition of the baby onto the carrier's back reassuringly safer.
The EvöAir comes with two fastening systems, one on the belt to use the HipGö with, and another to use from the age of 6 months onward.
