Because of the transportation and manipulation required to make a baby wrap, it should always be washed before its first use. A first wash will also help to strenghten the fibers of the textile. We recommend washing it by hand in lukewarm water with a mild soap, ideally a no-rinse soap. Lay flat to dry and do not iron. Avoid sunlight and heat sources to protect its colour.
Although possible, the drapings and knots that hold the baby with a single layer of fabric cannot be recommended. You should instead use a stretch baby wrap for use on the hip or in the front using the cross wrap technique.
We recommend that you limit the use of the same shoulder to carry your baby. Change shoulders frequently to rest your back. If you choose to use the cradle position, be very careful in its execution, as it presents more risks of suffocation. Keep the baby's face visible at all times. If you prefer the baby to face the world with his legs inside the wrap, know that this position requires more attention, as the baby is at a greater risk of tipping forward.

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.
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. Tilt his pelvis as far forward as possible to move his knees as high up as possible and deepen his seating.
This position is specific to the newborn and will be done in the first weeks of the baby's life. From the moment your baby begins to unfold his legs and push into the baby carrier, you have to do the portage position in front with the legs extended.
