Ergonomic baby carriers – what does that actually mean?
Perhaps this is the first time you have come across the term "soft structured baby carriers". No wonder, after all this way of carrying babies is a fairly new (and a rapidly growing) phenomenon on the streets of Polish cities. Baby carriers are a popular choice for parents who are already slinging their babies and are bringing them up in closeness. It is an excellent alternative to traditional prams. Every parent knows that even the most compact and robust pram will falter when confronted with the power of nature. Our soft structured carriers are a must whenever one has to deal with mountain trails, forest paths, streams and long walks.
All ergonomic Doux-Doux carrier models ensure the baby stays in a neutral position. Maintaining such a position is extremely important, especially for babies whose spinal curvature has not yet developed properly. Ergonomic carriers have a wide seat, no rigid back support (which cannot be said for hard carriers) but a soft, wraparound panel instead and soft filling where the baby's legs go as well as a carefully shaped, stuffed headrest supporting the head of a peacefully sleeping youngster. We use certified organic yarn, completely free of substances harmful to humans and the environment. Free from pesticides, chlorophenol, formaldehyde, dyes and heavy metals. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certificate stands testament to the quality of our baby carriers.
Close, healthy and most importantly, facing the parent!
There is a reason why for centuries babies have been carried facing the adult. Cloths, wraps, shawls or simply finely woven fabrics are ideal for carrying a baby. In each of these the baby is facing the wearer. And you might wonder why not facing the world? Because then the baby's spine is too straight and it is not possible for the baby's legs to rest naturally in the frog position. In addition, the baby's head visibly protrudes from the parent's chest without any support. Guided by experience, reason, observation and knowledge of the human anatomy, we opt for soft structured carriers which hold and wrap the baby like the best cuddly doudou (French: a thing a baby never parts with).
Cotton carriers have an important advantage over classic slings: you don't have to wrap them or learn how to tie them. Handy, practical and always ready to use. All baby carrier models available in the shop are made of a rectangular piece of fabric (panel), shoulder straps and a waist belt. A custom-made carrier can be sewn in one of three sizes depending on the size of your child (M – up to 80 cm, L – up to 92 cm and XL – more than 92 cm). Start your adventure with a carrier as soon as your baby can sit up and stay in the sitting position unaided and until he or she reaches 20 kg (approx. 3 years old).
Natural cotton carriers – for the benefit of the baby and the parent
A Doux-Doux carrier establishes a cohesive bond between parent and child, which is why it is equally important for us to take care of the parent's comfort. Adjustable baby carriers spread the baby's weight evenly across the wearer's hips and shoulders, the shoulder straps are softly stuffed with special foam and the waist belt is thick and retains its shape permanently. Pay particular attention to the location of the buckles. The buckle is located on the side part of the waist belt, which maximises wearing comfort and protects the abdomen from the unpleasant pressure of the buckle.
