... tie the baby wrap?
Printing instructional booklets puts a heavy strain on the environment. For that reason, we chose to send the instructions over to you electronically. Please check your order confirmation e-mail. There you will find a link to download your instructions.

The wrap feels loose
If you find that your baby doesn't feel secure and tight in the wrap, you need to take your baby out and retighten. Re-tie the wrap, making sure that the middle section and the straps across your shoulders are taut.
Can I sit my baby facing the front?
No. This isn't good for you or the baby. You want them securely snuggled close to you. Front-facing positions put undue stress on your babies developing hips.
Is the baby wrap safe for my newborn baby?
Most certainly! The wrap is designed so that your baby can feel safe and secure in their new environment, listen to your heartbeat and get to know your smell. It is also ideal for skin to skin time with your newborn. As with every carrier, make sure that you carefully follow the instructional steps and the safety steps and remember never to cover your baby's face!
How long can I carry my baby in the baby wrap?
Our baby wraps are designed for babies from birth to a year.
How do I wash my wrap?
For regular washes, please wash on a 30° cycle, however, if your wrap has more substantial staining it can be occasionally washed on a 40° cycle. You can tumble dry your carrier on a low setting.
I have come across different carrying positions with other wraps. Can I do this with the Fornessi?
We only recommend the safest and most ergonomic positioning in the wrap, both for you and your baby. While there are other possible ways to carry your baby, we strongly recommend that you only follow the instructions provided with your wrap. Carrying your baby in other positions might increase the risk of injury.
