Tula Baby Carrier Instructions

Please read the instructions below prior to using the carrier. 

Infants more than 15 lbs (7 kg) must continue using the Tula Infant Insert (sold separately) with the Tula Ergonomic Carrier until the baby can hold his/her head up consistently for extended periods of time and is tall enough to be placed in a fully seated position with knees dangling freely at a right angle.  Ring Slings are also a great option for small babies.

We do not recommend back carrying your child until 12 months, or until baby has strong and consistent head, neck, and torso control, and can push him or herself independently into, and remain in, a seated position on a consistent basis.

Tula Ergonomic Baby Carriers comply with the European Safety Norm for Soft Carriers EN 13209- 2:2006. Please, read our Babywearing Safety Guidelines and Instructions prior to using the carrier. 

The following videos provide a detailed instructions on how to use your Tula Baby Carrier, Tula Ring Sling and Tula Woven Wrap.

Back Carry

We recommend this wearing method for children over 12 months old. As babies get heavier, wearing them on the back is more comfortable for the wearer. It is a great position for children as they can see more. If your child is very small, you can choose to put the hip belt higher, all the way on your waist. This will provide a better "over the shoulder" view for your child. 

 


1. Secure the waist belt by fastening the buckle. Tighten the waist belt by pulling on the adjustable strap. The carrier's panel should be centered to the back of your body. Slip the strap over one arm.                                  
2. Place your child on your hip. Use the arm that is free from the strap to rotate your child from the hip position into the carrier. (Please have someone assist you until you are comfortable to perform this step on your own.)

3. While your child is rotated from the hip position into the carrier, use your other arm to secure the child. Slightly lean forward so that your child is resting their weight on your back.
4. Pull the panel up with your free arm and slip your arm through the other strap like you are wearing a back pack.


5.  Make sure your child's bottom is deep in the carrier just above the waist belt.



6.  Happy Babywearing :)
 

 

Tips for Back Carry

If the panel of the carrier scrunches up on the back of your baby, please loosen up one of the shoulder straps and pull it up. Adjust. Do the same with the other strap. Check out this video for a demonstration
