Will my baby be safe in the top?

Your baby's safety in our top is paramount; as such we have had the baby pouch™ strength tested in New Zealand to ensure it is strong enough to carry an infant up to 10 kgs.   We have also added an extra-stretchy breathable layer of fabric over the pouch, for added security.  We have designed the baby pouch™ using the T.I.C.K.S rule for baby wearing and it is very safe and easy to use so long as you follow these easy baby wearing rules over on our 'safe babywearing' page.  The Baby Pouch has been recognised by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI) to be a 'hip-healthy' product when used as directed.

Can The Baby Pouch be used with Twins?

The Baby Pouch is designed to be used with one baby in the pouch.  In saying this, we have had several twin mums purchase The Baby Pouch to use while Dad carries the other twin.

What is the top made out of?

the baby pouch™ is made out of 90% Organic cotton 10% elastane, with a cotton/elastane lining.  We have chosen this composition due to the breathable and stretchy nature of the fabric, which is comfortable for both mum and baby.

We believe the benefits of baby wearing are especially important for premature babies.  However, we do suggest you check with your doctor first.

What size should I order?

It is recommended that you size up from your pre-pregnancy size.  The Baby Pouch is designed to be very fitted when on and will feel much like shapewear or a sportsbra to put on.  If you are large busted, we recommend you go up by 2 sizes.  For example if you are a size 12 before pregnancy we would recommend you order a size 14, or a size 16 if you are big busted.  We are happy to exchange sizing if you feel you need to *conditions apply

The top feels tight, have I got the right size?

the baby pouch™ top should be fitted and the pouch should be firm around baby.  This ensures the safety and comfort of your baby in the pouch.  So long as the top feels comfortable once on, you have the right size.

I ordered the wrong size, can I exchange?

We understand that it can be difficult to know your post-pregnancy size for sure before you give birth, and are more than happy to exchange so long as top is in brand new unused condition with tag still attached. Please get in contact within 4-weeks post birth to arrange.

The International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI) acknowledges the baby pouch as a "hip-healthy" product when used as directed.
