Connecta - Naturally Happy Families

At Connecta we take safety very seriously.
All our carriers have been tested to the
relevant BS EN standard - the BS EN 132092:2005 and conform to ASTM f2236-14.
Please keep the following considerations in
mind when using our carriers:
Your balance may be adversely affected by
your movement and that of your child. Take
care when bending or leaning forward.
The Connecta is not suitable for use during
sporting activities.
The Connecta is suitable for babies
weighing between 3.5kg-24kg (7.5lb52lbs). Please see usage instructions for
recommended positions for different ages. Check your Connecta before every use
for any signs of damage or wear and
tear. Never use a carrier with any sign of
defects or damage.
Airway - particularly when using with
younger babies - always be sure to keep
their face clear of the Connecta or the
wearer’s chest and maintain a clear space
for the baby to breathe fresh air at all
times. Never allow a young baby’s chin to
droop onto the chest as this can restrict
the airway. Be aware at all times of baby’s
breathing.
Never
leave baby unattended either in or
near the Connecta. The Connecta must not
be used as a toy. Long straps can pose a
strangulation hazard.
Take care in use - Always be aware
of baby’s position in the Connecta,
particularly for back carries. Door
frames, escalators, lifts, revolving doors,
tree branches, bushes, stationary cars particularly wing mirrors, and many other
environmental obstacles can all pose a
danger. Always take account of the extra
space occupied by baby.
Pick up baby and tuck their legs into your
waistline. Bring the panel of the carrier up
between baby’s legs and over their back.
With one hand supporting baby at all times,
reach for a shoulder strap with your free
hand and place it on your shoulder. Switch
hands and reach back for the end of the
shoulder strap, bringing it across your back.
Supporting baby with your forearm, use both
hands to close the shoulder strap buckle
on the side of the carrier, you will hear an
audible click. To tighten the strap pull the
webbing backwards.
As before, with one hand supporting baby at
all times, reach for the other shoulder strap
with your free hand and place it on your
shoulder. Switch hands and reach back for the
end of the shoulder strap, bringing it across
your back. This should now form a cross over
your back
Supporting baby with your forearm, use both
hands to close the shoulder strap buckle
on the side of the carrier, you will hear an
audible click. To tighten the strap pull the
webbing backwards. Always ensure the fit
is tight and secure. You may wish to use the
integral sleep hood for extra head support.
You are ready to go.

always follow the TICKS Rules of Safe
Babywearing.

Connecta during any risky activities,
including but not limited to:- cycling, skiing,
horse-riding, swimming, cooking, running,

as depicted in this guide. The Connecta
is only intended for use on the front and
on the back. Only use on the back from a

be able to sit independently) and exercise
extreme caution when learning back
carries. Use the beginner’s back carry and
have someone assist you at all times until
you are completely confident.

and adjustments are secure before each
