How to keep your Bon + Bear Wrap soft

The Maine is made with OEKO-TEX 100 fabric which is tested to be free from 100 harmful substances, meaning no harmful chemicals to irritate delicate newborn skin.

Making sure you keep your baby’s skin soft is just as important as keeping your wrap soft too. Follow the wash instructions on your tag and remember, you don’t have to wash after every use - wipe clean instead with those trusty baby wipes for quick spills. Always check fabric for wear and tear before using too.

Care Information for Maine Nursing Wrap Bon + Bear

Keeping Baby Safe & Comfortable

Nursing

- The wrap should never be used standing or to transport baby. Only wear when seated and always supporting baby closely.

- Keep a close eye on their temperature and that they do not become too hot.

- In addition, do not lean/bend down with them in the wrap, or use “hands free” unsupported whilst breastfeeding. Don’t worry, your hands are still free for coffee and cake, but keep baby’s head supported in your arm at all times.

 

Skin to Skin

- Remember our first warning above? In addition, do not lean/bend down with them in the wrap.  

-Never fully cover baby with fabric during skin to skin and keep a close eye on their temperature to avoid overheating

- Always check baby can breathe freely, airways are open and chin off chest

- Ensure they are in an ergonomic position with legs in a wide squat position and knees higher than their bum

- We know how exhausted you are Mama, but never fall asleep with baby in skin to skin position.

- The obvious one, do not consume hot food/drinks for this special bonding time as baby will be extremely close to your head area.

 

Carrier    

- Always check baby can breathe freely, airways are open and chin off ch

- Ensure they are in an ergonomic position with legs in a wide squat position and knees higher than their bum

- Keep baby’s head supported with the aid of the wrap by tucking slightly over their neck area or using your hand.

- Be mindful of your layers so that you and baby do not overheat. You will keep each other warmer than you think. 

- Don't bend at your waist, bend at your knees to keep baby upright

- Do not exercise with baby in the carrier, this is intended for light physical activity like walking.
