When using any Izmi Baby Carrier, Izmi Toddler Carrier or Izmi Baby Wrap, always ensure your baby is HIGH, TIGHT and VISIBLE. Following these steps will help ensure that your baby is safe and you are comfortable.
Your baby should be positioned upright and high enough on your chest that you’re able to easily kiss the top of their head - without craning your neck forwards. Be sure to check on (and kiss!) your baby regularly.
Your Izmi should be worn tightly around you and your baby. This will help ensure that your baby cannot slump down inside the carrier and that their airways are protected.
You can check it is sufficiently tight by slightly and briefly leaning forwards, with a hand supporting your baby’s head. If your Izmi is tight enough, their tummy will not flop away from your chest; their body should stay in close contact with yours.
You’ll know if it’s too tight because you’ll find it difficult to take a deep breath.
Always ensure you can see your baby’s face. Never cover your baby’s face with fabric or any part of an Izmi product.
