LILLEBABY COMPLETE 6-in-1 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. Can I babywear while exercising?

Yes. Once your doctor clears you for exercise, you may want to include your baby. Power walking should be fine when baby is at least 6 months and have developed strong neck muscles. Never jog with a baby carrier. Always bend in the knees. Never lean forward.

2. Washing instructions:

The wash instructions are located on the warning label of your carrier (for future reference). Machine wash cold, mild detergent, no bleach. Hang dry.

3. Can you breastfeed in the Lillebaby Complete?

Yes. In order to have the optimal experience Lillebaby suggests that you play around with the different positions to see what works best for you. They recommend practicing at home a few times in front of a mirror in order to get the hang of it. Wearing a nursing shirt may also be helpful but is definitely not necessary since you can cover up with the hood or the neck support of the lillebaby carrier to ensure privacy. Use extra caution when nursing in your carrier to ensure that baby has a clear airway. Be sure to reposition your baby to a more upright positioning after nursing.

4. Do you use flame retardant in your carrier?

Lillebaby don’t use any flame retardant in the carrier and still meet flammability standards.

LILLEBABY ESSENTIALS 3-in-1 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. How does the Essentials compare to the Complete?

The Complete is a 6-position carrier with a number of unique features. The Essentials was designed to offer the best solution in the more simplified, traditional soft structured carrier category. It features 3 carrying positions (with the optional infant insert available upon request) and includes different features than the Complete.  

2. Will the Essentials replace the Complete?

Not at all! We believe the Lillebaby Complete is the best baby carrier on the market and we will continue launching new exciting prints and options in the Lillebaby Complete line. The Essentials, compared to the Complete, is a simplified, traditional 4-position carrier option designed to compliment our higher end Complete collection. We are proud to be able to offer it at a low price, allowing more families to experience the wonderful benefits of babywearing or to keep a second baby carrier as a backup (in the car, at grandma’s, etc) so that they are never without a babywearing option.

3. What are the weight limits? 

The Essentials is recommended for children 7kg - 20kg.  With the addition of the infant insert, it is approved for use from 3.2kg - 20kg.

4. Does it have a hood? 

Yes, the Essentials has a built-in, lightweight mesh hood which attaches with “hook and eye” elastic fasteners, and tucks neatly into the pocket when not in use.

5. Which carrying positions does the Essentials offer? 

The Essentials is a classic 3-position carrier, which includes front facing in, back, and hip (infant insert for newborn carrying can be ordered upon request). It does not have a forward facing option.

6. How do the straps adjust? 

The straps features two-way adjusters so that you can easily tighten, carry with straps crossed, and loosen the carrier to breastfeed. In addition the Essentials features Perfect Fit Adjusters (PFAs) on the front of the straps which provide an additional way to customize the length of the straps and adjust the positioning of baby.

7. Can I cross the straps?

Yes.

8. Is it easy to breastfeed in it? 

Yes. Both the two-way straps and the perfect fit adjusters simplify breastfeeding.

9. What is it made of?

Carrier is 100% cotton with a Cotton Mesh Hood.

10. Do I need an infant insert? 

Yes. The Essentials does not have a safety harness nor neck support like the Complete , and a rolled blanket in place of the insert is NOT sufficient. You MUST use the Lillebaby infant insert for infants who are not ready to sit with their legs around the parent’s waist. The infant insert can be ordered upon request.

11. How long does the Infant Insert need to be used? 

The infant insert must be used until baby is ready to comfortably sit with his or her legs around the wearer’s waist. The age depends on the baby’s size and build and also the parent’s size and built, but normally is minimum 6 months.

12. Does it include a lumbar support? 

No. Lumbar Supports are sold separately.

13. Why is it cheaper than the Lillebaby carriers?

The Essentials is made with high end fabric and material, but with fewer whistles and bells, it is simply less expensive to make than the Complete.

14. Is it washable?

Yes. Machine washes on delicate cycle and hang to dry.

15. Can it be used to tandem carry? 

Yes.

LILLEBABY CARRYON FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. What is the difference between the Complete and the CarryOn?

The CarryOn is designed for larger children, as it goes from 9kg up to 27kg. It has a roomier panel, and more adjustability in the straps to get a good comfortable fit. Children can be worn on the hip, the back or facing in, in 3 positions. 
The Complete has a fold down neck support so smaller babies can look out and be worn facing forward. Children can be worn facing in, and out, on the hip an on the back in a variety of ways because the width of the seat adjusts.
The Complete weight range is from 3.2kg at birth to 20kg with no need for an infant insert, you cannot use the CarryOn with children under 9kg.

2. Is my carrier machine washable?

Yes our carriers can be machine washed. Cold Wash on Gentle, less soap, hang to dry!

3. Can I wear my child in the CarryOn if she/he is under 9kg?

The CarryOn has been safety tested for children between 9kg up to 27kg. The infant insert cannot be used with the toddler CarryOn.

4. Can I wear my child facing out in the CarryOn?

No, the CarryOn is designed for front, hip and back carries only. 

5. Can I hip carry in the CarryOn?

Yes. This is a great alternative to front carry or back carry.

LILLEBABY WRAP FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. What is a stretchy wrap?

A wrap is a long, continuous piece of fabric that can be tied in a variety of ways to fit a variety of sizes.  Stretchy wraps have stretch to allow for easy tightening and "poppable" carries - baby can be taken in and out of the wrap with ease.  Stretchy wraps are recommended for front carries only.

2. What is the weight range for the wraps?

3.2kg - 13kg

3. Machine washable? 

Yes, lay flat to dry.

4. Good for petite/plus size wearers? 

Yes, the beauty of wrapping is it is easily customization to any body shape. It's extra long to accommodate all sizes, with an innovative pocket/elastic system that secures extra length, making it more manageable for petite wearers.

5. What are the wearing positions? 

Classic Carry - chest to chest with legs out or Newborn Carry - chest to chest with legs in.  Lillebaby suggests supporting your newborn baby in the position he or she naturally prefers - if they are still "curled" and prefer legs in, the Newborn Carry is a great option!

6. Can I use the Tie-the-Knot wrap in water?

No, the Tie-the-Knot wrap is not approved for water usage.
