Marsupi Safety and Care

SAFETY

Marsupi is designed for babies between 7-33 lbs (3.5-15kg).

  • Always adjust to fit snugly.
  • You should always be able to see your baby’s face by simply looking down. 
  • Always ensure your baby is positioned so their mouth and nose is turned away from your chest slightly and that their face, nose and mouth remain uncovered at all times. 
  • Velcro straps must be clean, and straps should reach past each other at least 5 inches (12cm).
  • Always maintain hand contact and support your baby while securing or adjusting straps.
  • Never open waist belt with a baby in the carrier. To adjust, first secure baby with your hands.
  • You will not be as mobile and flexible as you are on your own while carrying your little one. Please take extra care.
  • Your balance may be adversely affected by your movement and that of your child.
  • Be careful when benching or leaning forward.
  • This carrier is NOT suitable for use during sporting activities.
  • With very young or sleeping children without proper head control use the snap fastened head support.

Mini-Marsupi is designed for children 3 years and older.

Tip: Check in a mirror. The baby should sit in a M position, legs spread, knees bent and level with bellybutton.

(Warning – Fall hazard & suffocation risk. Only use an intended).

 

The T.I.C.K.S rule for baby wearing safety

Tight

The carrier should be tight with your baby positioned high and upright with head support. If the straps are loose it may cause your baby to slump down, making it harder to keep an eye on your baby, or restrict their breathing.

In view at all times

You should always be able to see your baby’s face by simply looking down. Ensure your baby’s face, nose and mouth remain uncovered by the carrier and/or your body.

Close enough to kiss

Your baby should be close enough to your chin that by tipping your head forward you can easily kiss your baby on top of its head.

Keep chin off chest

Ensure your baby’s chin is up and away from its body. Your baby should never be curled so that its chin is forced onto its chest as this can restrict breathing. Regularly check your baby. Babies can be in distress without making any noise or movement.

Supported back

Your baby’s back should be supported in a natural position with its tummy and chest against you. When bending over, support your baby with one hand behind its back and bend at the knees, not at the waist.

 

Washing & Care

Marsupi’s (like babies) like it best when you wash them gently by hand in cold water. 

Fasten ALL the Velcro fastening straps in this prior place before washing. This will ensure they stay “grippy” and function as intended.

Air/line dry only. DO NOT put in dryer.

NEVER iron the Velcro straps. This will significantly reduce their ability to secure hold your baby.
