What age can I use a SleepyNico Carrier from?
SleepyNico Baby Carriers are suitable for your baby as soon as they have good head control, from around 3-4 months.
What weight of child are they suitable for?
Baby Size from 3.5kg to 15kg
Toddler Size from 6.8kg to 20kg
Are they safety tested?
The SleepyNico carrier conforms to TR 16512:2015.
- When should I move to a Toddler Carrier?
They can be used from around 18 months for most babies so long as their airways are NOT covered so they are SAFE at ALL times this can vary from child to child, the main weight limits are set for safety tested limits so this is a good guide. However within this there is an overlap, some babies may have longer legs than another so a good tip is when the baby size is no longer supporting them knee to knee or is not supporting them in the back panel enough. We are always happy to help with this and Sling Libraries are an excellent place to get support and advice with this.
