Tricot-Slen Organic from Belgian Babylonia Baby Carriers was the first ergonomically sound baby carrier ever when it came back in 1998. It’s an amazingly soft and snug wrap, made from 100% organic GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified cotton.
Tricot-Slen is knitted in the Netherlands, and is stretchy in the right way!
- The less the fabric can be stretched out lengthwise, the better. Fabric that can be stretched in width is very comfortable, but if it’s stretchy lengthwise as well, your baby will be hanging too far down.
- If the fabric is Spandex, your baby will bounce up and down. That’s not only hard on the baby, but also for the person carrying, as it will feel a lot heavier.
- A carrier that’s stretchy in all directions must be very tight in order for the baby not to sit too far down, which might feel stuffy.
Tricot-Slen has a light stretch which makes it comfortable and easy to use. It can be used immediately after birth and in different positions; both in the cradle hold and in the upright position. The way to put it on is always the same, so you need only to remember one way. Be careful about using your wrap in the right way so that your baby sits safely and snugly in it, as we all want! Babies that can’t support their neck yet shall be supported by the fabric. Also make sure that your baby’s nose and mouth is never covered by fabric and that the chin isn’t crammed down toward the chest. See the manual for further safety advice.
