Carrying your Newborn in the Beco Soleil

`` (

Hello everybody!  It’s chillier than ever here in NYC, and I hope you all are cozy and warm wherever you are.

So happy to be back again talking about the Beco Soleil Baby Carrier, a great option for parents of all shapes and sizes. This lightweight yet durable carrier will definitely last you for years.  Today, I’ll be sharing with you a demo of carrying your baby in the Beco carrier with their legs in, which is the ideal position for your newborn infant.

Carrying your Newborn in the Beco Soleil

Beco Baby Carrier for Newborns

With a newborn, you’ll be attaching your carrier in the front. Make sure that you securely fasten and tighten the buckle behind you using the nifty dual-adjustability.  Now, you can go and grab your baby from their safe place.

The Beco boasts a handy newborn insert included with the carrier.  This can be removed after your baby has grown a bit.  In today’s video, though, I show you how to use it.  Lay the insert down on the ground and secure your baby inside.  The seat provides an ergonomically-sound position for your baby in the Beco.  With all those elements in place, go ahead and smooth the carrier over your baby and adjust the straps around your shoulders and sides.  Your baby should be in a comfortable position and can easily breathe when facing your chest.Your first breath took mine away.

Watch my video for some helpful visuals on the newborn hold in the Beco Soleil and instructions for carrying without the insert!
