Wearing baby in a wrap, sling, or carrier is a sweet way to keep your baby close, to promote bonding and keep your hands free whether at home or out and about. The TICKS guidelines apply to all baby carriers including carriers, wraps and hybrids and are the best way to ensure both you and your little one are safe, comfortable and well supported when babywearing.

Babywearing Safety "TICKS"


Baby should always be snug and supported with their body held against the wearer - just like you would when you're holding your baby in your arms!

If you feel like you need to hold a hand against your baby it's likely there is slack somewhere in the fabric or straps that needs to be adjusted.

A tight and properly adjusted carrier will feel comfortable and firm with  even weight distribution. Ensuring there is no pulling or slack fabric and straps. 


Keeping your baby in view at all times simply means when look down you should be able to see your baby's face - so you can see their mouth, nose and eyes - and you can monitor their breathing and cues. 

Even when supporting baby's head with one side of the wrap or the hood on a baby carrier you should still be able to keep an eye on your baby.

As baby grows and you transition to carriers that offer back wearing positions, you should still be able to look over your shoulder or in a mirror to keep an eye on baby.


Being close enough to kiss means without straining you should be able to kiss the top of your baby's head. This sweet little safety check is one of the quickest and easiest way to ensure your baby is positioned high enough in their carrier to be safe and supported. 

So just give your baby a quick kiss each and every time they're in their wrap or carrier! 


A baby should never be curled so their chin is forced onto their chest as this can restrict their breathing. Ensure there is always a space of at least a finger width under your baby’s chin.

Sometimes baby will snuggle their face into the parents’ chest. In this case we recommend that you gently turn baby’s head to one side or the other. 

When forward facing if your baby shows signs of tiredness or falls asleep it's important to turn them around right away. 


Baby should always be held in an upright position, close to the wearer so their back is supported in its natural position and their tummy and chest are against you. If a sling is too loose they can slump which can partially close their airway.

For optimal positioning, baby should be in a M position with their knees above their bottom. This will help support baby’s hips and spine and is an ergonomic position. 

Which carrier is right for you?

There's no one wrap or carrier that will be absolutely perfect for ALL bodies, lifestyles or budget. What's important is finding the right wrap or carrier for YOU!

You might want to consider the climate, how long you plan to use a baby carrier, what carry positions you prefer and if you're planning to share the carrier with another parent (or if you'd prefer two different styles!)
