How to wear Konny Baby Carrier
It is best to wear a T-shirt when wearing the Konny carrier. Simply wear the carrier like a T-shirt with the Konny logo on the back panel. Spread the sashes across your shoulders and pull the back panel as far down as feasible as shown in the photo below.
Try to make it appear like you’re wearing a shawl. If the back-panel crawls all the way up to your neck or if the sashes don’t cover your shoulders after carrying the baby, try wearing it again.
When carrying your baby using Konny carrier after the newborn stage, make sure both shoulder sashes extend from the bottom of the baby all the way to his/her knees. This is where you’ll know if you’ve found the ideal size if this forms an excellent “M” shape. (Picture 1)
If the baby’s bottom is positioned lower than your hips, you’ve chosen the proper size. If the kid’s bottom is positioned farther down than your hips, size down. (Picture 2) It is not advisable to wear a carrier that is too large for you for safety reasons.
