1. Put on the waist belt of the baby carrier. The baby's bottom should settle on the height of your belly button.
2. Pull the shoulder straps as long as you can. It will be easier to put the child into the baby carrier if the shoulder straps are loose.
3. Bring one of the shoulder straps over your shoulder, behind your back and fasten it to the buckleof the opposite side of the carrier body. Make sure that the strap is not twisted in the back.
4. Hold the child towards your chest at the side of your free shoulder. Put the child inside the baby carrier and ease her feet into place. Notice that the other foot must be brought from under the already fastened strap at one side of the baby carrier body.
5. Lift the other shoulder strap, cross it behind your back..
..and fasten, as before, to the opposite side of the carrier body. It is easier to do this, if you work behind your back so that you don't have to reach over your child's body.
6. Make sure that your child sits in the middle of the carrier body and adjust as needed. Make sure that the child sits in the pouch formed by the baby carrier. Pull the top of the carrier body or shoulder straps up and hop a couple of times so that the child's bottom settles naturally into the pouch. However, do not draw the carrier body too tight because this could place an uncomfortable strain on your shoulders. You can also lift the child's legs upwards from under the knees. This will help her to settle in the frog-leg position: the knees higher than the bottom.
7. Fit the shoulder straps comfortably on your shoulders and tighten them by pulling from strap ends forward and downwards. The shoulder straps will sit better when they are as far as possible from the base of your neck. The chest strap does not need to be fastened.
8.Taking the child off: open the other shoulder strap and lift the child out of the carrier. Open the buckle of the waist belt only when the child is out of the baby carrier!
