We find it can be a big help to try bubs in the BabyDink after a feed. A full tummy and a little snoozy makes trying new things for your baby more appealing. If you need to build you own confidence, practicing with a teddy is a great way to do this and standing in front of a mirror helps too.
When you are popping bub in, use the left strap first, really use the full stretch of the fabric to make space for baby.
1. When putting on your Dink make sure that shoulder seam stays nice and high on top of your shoulder - by pulling it down low at the back (towards your bottom) then securing the Signature Elasticised Velcro Hip Band firmly at the hips.
2. Popping bub in, really use the full stretch of the fabric - left shoulder strap first to get Bubs seat as low as you can. Really smooth the fabric under bubs bottom stretching it from knee to knee.
At this point do the same with the right strap and wiggle bub down a little more if need be. Baby should have knees higher than hips in the M position.
Baby should have both fabric straps criss-crossed smoothly under their bottom. This creates a secure seat for baby.
Now you will have your comfy position, and you can bring the third and final outer fabric section up to bubs neck.
Feet may be tucked in or out of the carrier as long as bubs has a hip healthy position - knees higher than hips.

We always recommend following the T.I.C.K.S standards for safe BabyWearing. Baby should be upright, with airways clear at all times.
