How to Ensure Your Carrier Lasts a Lifetime!

One of the greatest compliments we receive is when you tell us that your carrier is “three babies strong” or “ten years old and still going”! Not only do we love imagining all those family babies kept safe and close in our carrier but we also love knowing that parents can rely on our carriers too. To keep your carrier in tip top condition we recommend following our top tips below…


Use Teething Pads / Dribble Bib

Most babies, once they start teething, suck on the straps of the carrier. It’s right there, in perfect reach for tiny mouths and it’s soft and squishy and satisfying… who can blame them? But… the PH of their saliva and the wear of tiny teeth can damage your carrier so we offer teething pads and dribble bibs to help protect your carrier from their cheeky chomping. It also saves on washing as all you have to do is pop the teething pads in the wash after baby has a major suck session!

Our patterned dribble bibs are compatible with all our carriers and our Natural and Marine Drool Bibs and Teething Pads are compatible with our Omni, Adapt and All Position 360 carriers.


Wash on a Gentle Cycle and Air Dry

Did you know your carrier was machine washable? We recommend buckling all of the carrier buckles before you pop it in the was and washing it with a mild detergent on a gentle cycle at approximately 30 degrees. You can also pop it in an old pillow case to prevent any parts catching. Once it’s out of the washing machine, be sure to hang it to dry rather than putting it in the dryer.


Don’t Leave your Carrier in the Car

We know it can handy to keep your baby carrier in the car, but sometimes the extreme temperatures of the car can be hard on a baby carrier (did you know that car seats have expiration dates? That’s why!). Try hanging your baby carrier(s) on a hook with your coats instead, then you’re less likely to forget it on this mad dashes out the house. Plus it saves a trek out to the car if you just need to pop baby in just to get the dishes done – we’ve all been there!
