Frequently Asked Questions
The recommended weight range is newborn to 15kgs. No baby is too small – even the tiniest infants can be safely carried in your KangaWrap.
KangaWraps will always be made where employment opportunities can be offered in fair trade conditions. Currently, all KangaWrap products are made in Mauritius.
The KangaWrap is designed to be one size fits all and is long enough for a comfortable fit on almost any wearer. Your size will only determine how many times you wrap the ties around your waist, which will not affect the strength or integrity of the KangaWrap. As long as you can tie the knot comfortably, you will be fine.
We recommend that you never hold your baby in a forward position in a KangaWrap (or any baby carrier) as it places undue pressure on their developing spine, hips and most sensitive area. It also fails to provide good head and neck support.
You can easily and discreetly nurse while wearing your baby in a KangaWrap. Have as much skin to skin contact as possible in the first few days after the birth, this will encourage breastfeeding little and often which in turn helps to increase lactation.
You’ll need to wriggle the baby down a bit lower for feeding – but essentially the main thing is to experiment and find what is easiest for you. Remember to always keep a close watch on your baby while breastfeeding and move your baby’s face away from your breast when they are no longer actively nursing.
Always position baby so you can see its face and check its breathing regularly, especially when it is asleep. Do not sleep with your baby in the wrap.
