At Connecta™ safety is paramount. All Connecta™ are tested to the latest available safety standard and we have our own in-house quality control team. We work hard to ensure that you can trust your Connecta™ to be safe for you and your child. As with all baby and child equipment, it is important to follow the correct instructions for use.
- Please keep the following considerations in mind when using your Connecta™
- Your balance may be adversely affected by your movement and that of your child.
- Take care when bending or leaning forward.
- Our carriers are not suitable for use during sporting activities.
- The Connecta™ is suitable for babies weighing between 3.5kg-24kg (7.5lb-52.5lbs).
- Check your carrier before every use for any signs of damage or wear and tear.
- Never use a carrier with any sign of defects or damage.
Dangerous Activities – Never use your carrier during any risky activities, including but not limited to:- bicycling, skiing, horse-riding, swimming, cooking, running, eating hot food, drinking hot drinks, using knives or other sharp or dangerous tools, near open flames, climbing, in a moving vehicle of any kind, or whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Use common sense at all times.
Follow the instructions for use and only use as depicted in this guide. This carrier is only intended for use on the front and on the back. Only use on the back from a minimum of 4 months of age 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.
Airway – Particularly when using with younger babies – always be sure to keep their face clear of the carrier, the wearers chest or any obstruction such as clothing, 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 your baby’s breathing.
Never leave baby unattended either in or near the carrier. The carrier must not be used as a toy. Long straps can pose a strangulation hazard. Never leave a baby or child unattended with the carrier.
