A close baby carrier in funky colours. Suitable for newborn to toddler, and ideal when you want to hold your baby but also need to use both hands.
The Sling 4-in-1 is perfect for when you want to carry your child in the classic lying position in a sling. The carrying part of the Sling Classic is slightly larger, allowing it to be used as a hammock in the playpen for longer periods of time, or to carry your toddler.
How To Use The Baby Sling By MiniMonkey
Banana (0-3 months)
Baby can be carried in the sling in the banana position from birth. The baby is put diagnonally in the sling, with the head touching the outside rail and bottom more towards you. It hears the heartbeat of the sling wearer reminding him of the cozy womb he just left. The sling is also great for discreet breastfeeding.
Kangaroo (3 months +)
Once baby’s back is stronger, the kangaroo position can be used. In his position baby sits facing forward in the sling with feet forward and up high. Baby’s head leans against the sling strap.
Once the toddler’s back is strong enough you can use the hipster position (instruction video). In this position the clasp sits on the chest so that the sling will sit just above your hip. The toddler sits in the sling with legs coming out on either side of the wearer’s hip.
Hammock in the playpen (0-3 months)
The baby sling can also be used as a hammock in the playpen. Gently rocking the hammock to-and-fro will put baby to sleep. Also helpful for babies with colic. The sling can also be used in larger playpens – in this case it should be hung diagonally in a corner.
To prevent a (small) baby to sink deep into the baby sling, you turn the sling inside out. When wearing this way, the baby lies in a smaller ‘pocket’ of fabric and is therefor higher in the sling. It is hard to explain by words, so we advise you to have a look at the instruction video. The baby is positioned correctly when the bottom (so not the back) is positioned in the lowest point of the pouch and the baby can breathe freely
