Are you confused, too?
Does everyone tell you something different when you ask people if you can use the manduca for newborn babies? Even the experts don’t always agree – does your pediatrician have a different opinion from your midwife? You read forum after forum – do you keep discovering different views on how old babies have to be to use a manduca baby carrier?
It was just the same for me when I became a mother for the first time and wanted to do everything 100% right. So who should you ask? Our own mothers still know very little about carrying babies because when they were young mothers themselves, carrying your baby was still considered quite exotic.
“Trust your gut instinct!” said my midwife to me. At the time I didn’t realize how right she was and how valuable this advice would always be for me.
manduca for newborn babies
But we cannot just trust our gut instincts of course … so here are a few facts:
•Back extension As your child grows, the manduca grows too: The patented back extension and the various ways of combining the snap fasteners of the infant seat allow you to constantly adapt the manduca to your child’s size.
• When do I no longer need the infant seat? You can use the manduca without a infant seat as soon as your child’s thighs have become long enough: when the manduca reaches from one knee hollow to the other knee hollow and the lower legs can dangle freely without the infant seat. (This is usually the case when the child is 4-5 months old and has reached clothes size 68.)
