ARE THEY CARRIED IN SAFE POSITION FOR HEALTHY HIPS?
Chekoh lives and breaths all things baby wearing and your little ones safety is their number one priority.
The carriers have proudly been deemed ‘Hip Healthy’ products by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute so you can carry with confidence and care.
Chekoh only endorse and promote SAFE wearing and provide safety guidelines and instructions with every carrier.
WHAT IS THE SAFEST CARRY FOR MY BABY?
It is now recommended and supported by certified Babywearing Educators worldwide to have your baby’s legs out from birth. This position also helps to keep their developing spine supported in the natural ‘C’ curve, so always ensure you create a nice deep seat for your little one, the bottom rail is sitting up firm against the back of baby’s knees and they are in a squat or ‘M’ position with their bottom positioned lower than their bent knees.
We do not recommend a forward facing carry. Please only carry your baby as per the instructions included with your carrier.
We also have your comfort in mind so please ensure that your Wrap is tied tight and the fabric spread wide across your back with no twists or flips.
CAN I CARRY MY BABY FROM BIRTH?
We recommend using your Chekoh Wrap from 3kgs so right from the beginning.
Little ones love to be all cuddled in, heart-to-heart; and Babywearing provides the most womb-like environment they could be in. The will love to hear your heartbeat lullaby and you will love the hands free ease.
If your newborn is under 3kg, born prematurely, or has any health issues, please consult with your paediatrician or doctor before beginning wear.
IS MY BABY TOO BIG TO BE WORN IN WRAP?
The recommended weight range is up to 8-10kgs or approximately 8-12mths old (you will find most of your wear will occur in the first 6-8mths) this will ensure a comfortable carry for both you and baby.
WHY ARE THEY MADE FROM BAMBOO?
Did you know that Bamboo is quite simply a wonderful green resource that is hugely beneficial both to the way we want to live our lives, and to the environment. One of the main factors in our choice to manufacture Bamboo baby carriers is, Sustainability.
Bamboo is amazing - it is one of the fastest growing plants in the world, it is a naturally prolific and resilient plant which doesn’t need fertilizers to boost it’s growth, or pesticides as Bamboo is naturally pest resistant. This is a giant leap forward from fabrics like cotton who’s crops need to be replanted at every harvest and require extensive spraying and watering to achieve optimal growth.
Bamboo is also:
- Soft to the touch: envelops your body and baby in truly unparalleled comfort
- Hypoallergenic: eco-friendly bamboo fibres will not irritate the skin and are gentler than many man made fibres, a natural solution for those with sensitive skin and perfect for tiny newborns and babies.
- Breathable and thermo-regulating: stay comfortable whatever the weather and during your changing journey
- More absorbent than cotton: helps to wick moisture away from the skin, perfect for breastfeeding mamas
- Biodegradable: a greener material that will simply return to the Earth and achieved with sustainable supply, helping take a more cleaner and greener step towards your baby’s future.
Chekoh's own signature fabric blend includes spandex for stretch and comfort, wash after wash, your Wrap will always stay true to shape and contour for a perfect fit every time.
HOW DO I WASH AND CARE FOR THE WRAPS?
The care instructions can be found sewn inside the little "pocket" of the carrier.
To wash we recommend popping it inside the FREE Cotton mesh wash bag that your wrap comes in and then into the tub on a cold wash (no bleach!). Tumble dry on a low heat & gentle cycle and press with a warm iron if necessary.
It's also suggested washing it separately the first time, just incase the colours aren't completely colourfast.
I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS AND UNSURE IF RIGHT FOR ME?
Chekoh provide easy to follow video tutorials by their trained Educators, and offer FREE one-on-one video consults to talk you through your carry style and provide that extra support and enhance your wear for the most optimal carry and comfort for both you and baby.
