Instructions for the Maya Wrap Ergonomic Baby Carrier


Learning to use a baby carrier is like learning to ride a bike. It takes practice but is soon second nature.

  • Consider practicing with a doll before you carry your baby.
  • Practice next to a couch or a bed.
  • Continually support your baby until you are confident.
  • Ensure you and baby are rested and fed before you begin.
  • Use a mirror or a partner to help while you are learning.
  • Always be aware of your baby’s positioning and body language.
