Can I use the SNUGGbaby carrier with a newborn?
Stork Baby Carrier (standard size) and U.Di Mesh Carrier are best for 4m up to 2-3 years old.
It is suitable for newborn weighing 3kgs with an additional accessory. The cincher belt is used to adapt the carrier and make the base smaller. The cincher belt comes together with a readymade Stork Baby Carrier. It is also sold separately at RM12.00 per piece.
Will Stork be able to fit plus sized parents?
Stork waist straps can fit up to 50" waist size and also the petite parent. Because the straps are adjustable, you can share the carrier between you and your partner.
You can also opt for a customised carrier that is designed specifically to fit your body shape and size. Please contact us for further details.
Can I breastfeed my baby in the carrier?
We recommend that you feed your baby in a calm manner i.e. sitting down in a calm area and breastfeed, however, we do understand the need to breastfeed on the go sometimes.
At SNUGGstudio we will be able to teach you how to breastfeed while wearing the carrier.
Please note that both mother and baby must be efficient in breastfeeding before attempting to breastfeed while using a carrier.
Some practice is also required.
Can I wear my baby in a front-facing position?
Babies cannot be placed in a front-facing position in SNUGGbaby carriers.
SNUGGbaby carriers are designed by a certified babywearing consultant and designed to be ergonomic. We don't design our carriers for the front-facing position because this position is not ergonomic for the baby and also the wearer.
The baby will be dangling by the crotch and will be too exposed to external stimuli when placed in the front-facing position.
Ideally, the baby should be seated with his knee to knee fully supported.
The parent will have their centre of gravity shifted further away from the body making her feel fatigued and giving her muscle aches.
We recommend that baby is carried on the back using SNUGGbaby carriers when the baby is older. Our opinion is that this will be better for baby and parent in the long run.
Can I customise a carrier?
Yes, we gladly accept custom request for Stork Carrier. We call it a 'Personalised Stork'. We can make a carrier according to your specification using available materials and expertise at our studio.
