Designed by an occupational therapist, the PöpNgo is essential to every modern family in need of a practical, simple, comfortable baby carrier. It offers an innovating carrying system favourable to the baby's development, from birth to early childhood. Its 100% organic cotton.is soft on baby's skin and ideal year-round for indoor and outdoor use. Lightweight and extremely compact, it takes very little space and be easily carried using its included transport bag.
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,ideally using no rince soap, or washing it in a laundry bag using your washing machine's delicate cycle. and hanging it to dry. 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 weighs 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 the age of 6 months, applying tension in the middle of the baby's back needs to be avoided. When using the horizontal extension, make sure not to tighten the straps too much. Use the support cushion to properly position the baby from 8lbs to 12lbs (3,6 to 5,5kg).
Starting at 6 months, 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 support cushion 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. Keep using the support cushion until he reaches 12lbs.
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.
