Designed by an occupational therapist, the Multi 2.0 baby carrier is an innovative system allowing you to carry your baby in a position favourable to proper hip and spine development. In addition to the classic tummy, hip, and back positions, the Multi 2.0 is the only baby carrier of its category granting perfect support under the thighs when the baby is facing the world. The Multi 2.0 is made of extraordinarily soft, strong technological materials.
To carry your baby in a sitting position beyond 18 months, we recommend the use of Chimparöo Foot Straps or Chimparöo Leg Supports. These accessories can also be use together.
The Multi 2.0 comes with a front pocket for small items.
When using the newborn seat, the side panels of the Multi 2.0 can be opened up to let out the legs on either side so as to not cause pressure on the baby's hips.
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. Avoid using a washing machine as the straps could become tangled. The baby carrier should not be ironed. You can use sucking pads to avoid washing it every day.
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. Before 6 months, the stretchy infant seat should be used to support the baby at a good height. Otherwise, you can also use the evolutive belt sold separately.
Starting at 6 months and when your baby can sit by himself, his spine is sturdy enough to no longer need constant back support. When he is tall enough, the newborn seat will no longer be needed and he will even be able to have his arms out above the shoulder straps.
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. You can also have his arms out and above the shoulder straps.
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 hangong 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.
