Yes! There are many different "holds" you can place your child in. There is one way specifically for a newborn. That hold is the only acceptable way to place your newborn. As you will read in the instructional booklet, other holds should be for after they are 2 months of age because of the positioning of their hips in that position. It is important not to place a newborns hips apart without support under the thigh because this can lead to hip dysplasia since newborns hips are free floating in the socket until they are older. I really enjoy this wrap! It is worth giving it a shot and if you find something you don't like it is very easy to return an Amazon purchase! Hope this helps and congrats on your new addition!
No. It is dangerous. The manufacturers of this product include many warnings about suffication when used improperly. Take a shower when baby is sleeping or playing in her crib. Always hold your baby in the water and always use an infant life vest when near or in the pool, boat, lake, ocean, etc. It is never safe to wear your baby in the water.
I have back problems, however it hasn't caused increase back pain and it hasn't triggered my back pain at all. I have been very pleased with the comfort on my shoulders as well as I have digenerative disk pain from neck all the way down.
I believe it's on their website. My pre-pregnancy size was 2-4 and now is a 4-6 and the small fits perfectly. It is very snug and will almost feel like your baby can't possibly fit but that's what you want because you want your baby to feel secure against you. Plus naturally loosens as the day goes on.
