Today I have a top tip, and it’s to aim for the pelvic tilt. This is the optimal position for baby to be when carried in a sling or carrier. ⠀
You may hear us mention this a lot, but what does it actually mean? ⠀
Well, it’s the way baby is seated in the carrier. Their knees are above their bottom with their pelvis tilted towards you. If you look at them in the carrier from the front, their legs should make an ‘M’ shape. I’ve popped some photos in so you can see what it looks like. ⠀
It is a stable position. They are fully supported across both thighs to their knees and this promotes healthy hip development. Their spine is curved towards you which means their head naturally rests on your chest. ⠀
If you’re struggling to get a good pelvic tilt, get in touch and we can help you. ⠀
