JAGY CARRIER COMPONENTS – BABY SIZE
1. Position the carrier on a flat surface to adjust the width of the panel. For an optimal carrying position, the panel needs to be adjusted with a hook and loop fastener that is located on the inside of the belt, so that the baby is supported from the knee to knee.
2. Fasten and tighten the belt with the wrong side facing you and the right side out. The panel hangs over the belt with the right side facing you and the wrong side out.
3. Rest the baby on your chest and spread her legs so that they are both free on the side of the panel. It is safer to hold the baby by the waist rather than the baby bum
4. Lift the panel over the baby by holding the baby with one hand and lifting the baby panel over the back with the other.
5. Slide the shoulder strap one by one, always holding the baby across the panel with your free hand. When both straps are on your shoulders, fasten the transverse strap that should fit under your neck. With the straps tightened, the transverse strap will lower to the ideal height; about in the middle of the blades.
6. When the transverse strap is buttoned, tighten the shoulder straps so that the palm rests between your and the baby. With the straps tightened, the transverse pulley lowered to the ideal height, in the middle of the shoulder blades.
6a. The transverse shoulder strap should form the letter H. Its role is only to support the shoulder straps. If too tight, it more closely resembles the letter K or X and thus creates uncomfortable pressure points on the back, and during prolonged wearing can cause back pain. So the shoulder straps are meant to be tightened, not the transverse strap.
7. When the carrier is well adjusted, the baby’s body is centered in the carrier panel, the upper edge of the strap is parallel to the floor and the baby’s knees are slightly higher than the buttocks: the pelvis with the knees forms the letter M. The baby is in a semi squatting position.
8. Adjust the panel height by tightening the belts on the outer panel. This adjusts the height of the carrier. Ideal height supports the baby’s neck, but shoulder never exceed the baby’s head. Always make sure your baby’s airways are free and not obstructed.
9. The protective hood is simply attached with a shoulder strap to serve as additional support for the sleeping baby’s head or wind protection.
1. Pull the buttoned carrier to its side and lift the baby. Extend her legs, lift the panel over her back so you always hold it with your free hand.
2. Firmly grasp both shoulder straps and immediately pull the left shoulder strap to the left shoulder, or right to the right.
3. Switching your baby from side to the back is the safest way of switching for restless babies who like to twist and jump in the carrier.
4. Hold your right shoulder strap with your left hand, or left with the right, as you pass it from hand to hand behind your head. With your free hand, push the belt as you pull the straps to place the baby on your back.
5. When both straps are on your shoulders, fasten the transverse strap. It is high at the neck but will fall 1-2 finger widths below the collarbone with a shoulder strap. Its role is only to attach the straps, not to take on the weight so do not over tighten it. A tightened transverse strap can cause dull pain between the shoulder blades and neck during prolonged wear.
6. Tighten the straps in the direction of the pushers, toward back and down.
The baby in the back position has much a better view. Make sure that the panel extends at least to the armpit and is firmly supported over half the back. When everything is adjusted to the upper edge of the belt parallel to the floor, the straps sit comfortably on your shoulders and you only feel only a third of your baby’s weight.
