With your baby, you always want to do things perfectly. And if you ask yourself, whether it is possible to carry a newborn in a baby carrier, the answer is “Yes”! You just have to make sure that when you carry your baby, it is positioned in the recommended spread-squat position. The spread-squat position is the position babies automatically assume when you pick them up: they automatically bend their legs up – like a small monkey – and prepare themselves instinctively to be carried. We call this position the M-position, because the feet, the knees and the bottom form a big M. M for manduca in fact.
