Your baby should now be positioned high up on your chest in the “kissing position” where you can easily kiss your baby’s head.

Is the head of my baby properly supported in the Stokke® MyCarrier™?
”When adjusted correctly, the carrier gives good support for the baby’s head. MyCarrier offers some room for movement so that the baby can decide its head positioning on their own and strengthen their neck muscles.”

How should I maintain the textiles of the Stokke® MyCarrier?The Stokke® MyCarrier is typical of the Stokke® range in that it is a natural product, made of certified organic cotton in accordance with the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) . This means the dyeing process of the Stokke® MyCarrier textiles is also environmentally friendly and special care needs to be taken when maintaining the baby carrier. Please note that the colour may rub off initially so it is advisable to wash the carrier separately. Also, the colour will fade over time as a result of washing. Most stains can be removed with a damp cloth. When you do decide to wash the carrier textiles, please follow the washing instructions on the care label. The front and back carrier can both be machine washed at 40°C. The main harness should be hand washed at 30°C. Remove the aluminium back support of the latter before washing. Do not tumble dry or iron the product. Detailed washing instructions for Stokke® MyCarrier can be found on the care label, in the user guide, or on our website www.stokke.com, under Baby Carrier/Maintenance.
