Please note that carriers will come standard with an infant seat.

Infant Seat- The infant seat or infant harness was added in the summer of 2009. It is both a safety feature and one of convenience that allows you to use the same carrier from birth until you are no longer needing your carrier. It is also a great option if you will need to carry both a toddler and a newborn but don't want to buy two separate carriers. The infant seat is sewn into the carrier for safety reasons so it is not removable but it will not be in your way if you choose not to use it because it is made from the same soft fabric as the rest of the carrier. It uses two small low profile buckles to attach to the underside of the shoulder straps and is sewn into the carrier at the waist band. It has two strips of hook and loop that allows you to vary the depth that your child sinks into the carrier by closing or releasing the strips.

For infants always make sure that the top edge of the carrier falls between their ears and the tops of their shoulders. For infants that do not have head control yet it is essential that they sit low enough in the carrier for their head to be supported by the body of the carrier. You may need to release one or both of the velcro strips to ensure that they are properly supported.

For older children and infants once they have head and neck control, always make sure that the top of the carrier is not lower than the armpit or shoulder blade level when using the seat. If they are sitting up higher than that you will need to release one or both of the hook and loop strips to allow them to sit lower in the carrier. The harness can be used all the way up to 30 lbs if you would prefer to keep using it for a safety feature for back carriers or you can flatten it against the back of the carrier and use it without it.

If you are using a carrier that has the seat but you are choosing to not use it, put the carrier on just like you would a standard carrier. I would recommend sliding your hand inside the carrier to make sure that the seat is still flat against the back of the carrier once your child is seated and that the seat itself isn't bunched up under them, keeping them from sitting all the way down in the carrier.

How to keep your new carrier looking its best:

It is going to be necessary to clean your carrier from time to time, after all it is intended to be used often and little ones are experts at getting things dirty. Avoid letting your child eat or drink in the carrier to avoid unnecessary spills or stains. It is best to spot treat your carrier with a damp cloth and cool water to remove dirt or stains and then lay it flat to dry. If it is necessary to wash the entire carrier you will need to place it in a pillowcase and wash it alone on the gentle cycle with cold water. Do not use bleach. Lay it flat to dry, do not dry in the dryer. You may use a warm iron if necessary taking care to avoid the webbing and buckles.

IMPORTANT!

Please thoroughly review your instruction book before using this product! Keep book for future reference and review.

  • Do not place baby down to sleep on a surface while still in the baby carrier. If your child falls asleep in the carrier and you wish to lay them down to sleep you must remove them from the carrier first.
  • Be aware of the position of your child’s head to make sure that the air way is not constricted and that there is nothing in front of your child’s mouth that could restrict its breathing.
  • Be aware of your child’s position in the carrier and always use the internal harness to ensure that your child can not slip through the leg hole.
  • To be sure that your child remains seated safely in the carrier do not bed forward at the waist, bend only at the knees keeping the child upright in the carrier.
  • Always use a second person to spot you when placing your child in the back carrying position to ensure the safety of your child.
  • Make sure that the carrier is pulled all the way up past the child’s arm pits to properly secure the child in the carrier.

There is a one year non-transferable warranty on all carriers that are sold through Olives and Applesauce or one of our accepted retailers. The warranty applies only to the construction of the materials and does not cover normal wear and tear. Shipping charges will be reimbursed for the original owner if there is a manufacture defect, otherwise it is the responsibility of the current owner to pay for the shipping.

Custom carriers will be covered for the materials that I use, but not for the panel or print fabrics. This means that the strap materials and snaps are covered, the silk that you might choose is not.
