Small babies who are not able to sit on their own because the muscles along their spines are not strengthened enough must be placed in the carrier with the utmost care. There are several rules that should be kept. Their legs should not be hanging down freely. The thighs should be supported, the legs should be spread wide and the knees should be higher than the bottom. This position is beneficial for the hips, which are not under any stress and can develop in a healthy way. When the legs are positioned carefully, it influences the posture of the whole body -- the back is rounded and rests comfortably against the fabric of the backrest. Until the child can sit on their own, the backrest should reach up to their neck. Their hands should be tucked inside the carrier so that the spine does not bend backwards. This is why the backrest must be sufficiently wide under the legs and also high enough to support the whole back. As soon as the child learns to sit on their own it is not necessary to support their back so carefully. However, when the backrest can reach high enough, carrying can be comfortable even for bigger children and for longer periods of time.
How the KiBi grows?
The width of the backrest
You can regulate the width of the backrest with the press studs located on the upper rim of the waistband.
If you start carrying your baby while it is still small, undo all the studs and only do up the last one in the narrowest position. The excess cloth can be fastened by the inbuilt clamp. As your child grows, you can add the studs one by one, so that the cloth always reaches all the way to their knees.
If the cloth is too loose around the knees and does not hold them up high enough, you can pull it higher with a black strap on the very edge of the backrest.
The width of the carrier can be adjusted from approximately 31 cm to 51 cm.
