Your harness can be adjusted for even more comfort
for smaller or larger children by threading the
harness webbing through the adjusting ‘sliders’ in
either direction, you can change the length of the
webbing thus making them tighter or looser over

The harness should be snugly fitted to the baby’s
body, tight enough so that the baby cannot wriggle
itself free of the straps but loose enough so as not
to cause the baby any discomfort.
