There is a new baby store in town, and its called Modern Mini. It seems like modern kids stores are the hot new thing, but its about time right? It used to be impossible to find something modern for the little tikes, but its getting easier. Modern Mini has many of the same products that the other modern kid stores have, most at pretty good prices too. Ok, not Target good, but at least not DWR prices. One of the things that I was very excited to find were the Premaxx baby carriers. I read about Premaxx a while ago, and was sold on their baby carriers, but I haven't been able to find them stateside until now. Modern Mini has a couple basic colors from the Premaxx line, all at a very reasonable $55. The slings can be used to carry your little lima bean in the fetal position until 5 monthes, and them after in the sitting position. Pics and instructions after the jump.
From birth to about 5 months a Insert you left or right arm through the carrying band of the Baby-Bag and hang this around your neck. Make sure that the label is positioned on one of your shoulders. By shifting the adjustable band, position the Baby-Bag at the level of your tummy. Tighten the inner cord and tie it with a secure bow.
b Place your baby in the Baby-Bag with its head on the side where the band crosses your shoulder. It is most comfortable for you and your baby if its head is at the level of your chest.
c Now tighten the outer cord and tie a bow in this as well.
tip: If you have a new-born baby, turn the band around the one across your shoulder. The folds will fall outwards enabling you to see your baby better. From 5 to about 18 months a Insert your left or right arm through the carrying band and hang this over one of your shoulders. Make sure that the label is positioned on one of your shoulders.
b Adjust the adjustable band so that the Baby-Bag reaches your hip (the mattress must be at the level of your hip bone). Tighten the inner cord so that it is equal in length with the Baby-Bag and tie it with a secure bow.
tip: Your baby should actually sit on your hip. Do not tighten the inner cord as this may not be very comfortable for your baby.
c Place your baby in the Baby-Bag in a seated position on your hip. The baby’s legs will be suspended from the front and side. Now tighten the outer cord and tie it with a secure bow.
