5 Guidelines for Safe Baby Wearing
What are the guidelines for safe baby wearing?
You have probably heard several different rules about how to baby wear properly. It may seem like a lot to keep track of, especially if you are a new parent. Yet, there is a simple way to remember safe baby wearing guidelines! Just tick off the ‘T.I.C.K.S’ checklist!
1. T is for ‘Tight’
2. I is for ‘In View at All Times’.
3. C is for ‘Close enough to kiss’.
4. K is for ‘Keep Chin off of Chest’
This one is so important. It should be your #1 priority to make sure your baby’s chin is not on their chest. This can hinder their breathing and restrict airflow. This is the same reason why babies should not be left in removable baby car seats to sleep when they are not in the car.
5. S is for ‘Supported Back’
