There are a few things you can do to make sure baby is safe, secure, and supported in your new Sakura Bloom. Read the manual, watch our instructional videos, and practice practice practice. You may want to stand in front of a mirror or reflective surface at first, and some parents find it helpful to use a stuffed animal or even a bag of rice to practice initially.
To evaluate the success of your carry, check that baby is:
- Kissable (you should be able to kiss their head without straining your neck)
- Shoulders and neck supported to maintain airway
- Deep seated squat, with knees higher than bum
