The Wilkinet baby carrier combines the best features of a wraparound sling with a streamlined design that is popular with mums, dads and babies. The comfortable padded straps securely hold your newborn (from 2.5kg/5lbs) close to your heart, whilst being strong enough to carry a toddler up to about 12kg/28lbs.
You can use the Wilkinet to carry your baby on the front facing in or facing out (from 3 months), on the hip and on the back. The straps are well padded so won't dig into your shoulders. Most importantly of all, your baby does not hang by its crotch because the base strap supports under its thighs and bottom. The tie straps hold your baby?s lower spine snug against your body, ensuring good posture for you both and therefore a more comfortable carrying experience.
The Wilkinet?s wraparound method takes a a little longer to get the hang of than buckle fastening baby carriers, but it means that your baby's weight is drawn close to your body, dispersing their weight across the whole of your torso. This makes the Wilkinet Baby Carrier much more comfortable than other baby carriers wher the weight is hung from your shoulders in a harness which becomes awkward and adds to the probability of back, shoulder and/or neck pain.
