Workout with baby: exercises you can perform
- • hiking
- • Nordic Walking
- • Kangatraining
… but in the instruction it says: ” … not suitable for use during sporting activities”?
WARNING: This carrier is not suitable for use during sporting activities.
The reason for this is quite simple: In Europe, the product safety of baby carriers is tested in accordance with the European standard (EN12309). According to this standard, instructions for baby carriers have to include specific warnings. And as these have to be as short, as general and as precise as possible, we don’t find a detailed list of sporting activities. At first glance, this warning seems to exclude all kinds of sport – that literally means even chess. This calls for subtle thinking because not all sports are alike.
Riding and riding a bike
In Germany, this is not only our recommendation, it is simply not allowed due to the German road traffic regulations which stipulate that a special seat is required for the transport of children on a bike. And as the manduca is clearly not a special bicycle seat, the rule is that children in the manduca are not to be transported on a bike.
No sports – these are absolute no-nos in the manduca
To summarize: with your child in the manduca you should
- • not ride a bike
- • not drive a car
- • not climb or hike on Alpine trails
- • not ski
- • not dance Rock’nRoll or Zumba
