Q. For how long should I carry my child in the baby carrier?

A. The BRITAX BABY CARRIER has been designed to provide long-wearing comfort for both you and your baby and can be used for as long as you are both comfortable. However, keep in mind that young infants should not remain in a stationary position for extended periods of time.

Q. How easy is it to use the BRITAX BABY CARRIER?

A. Many baby carriers involve a learning curve, for which many parents are unprepared. The BRITAX BABY CARRIER is very intuitive and was engineered for simple daily use. An over-the-head design makes it easy to get the carrier on and off, one-handed buckles and snaps simplify getting your child in and out of the carrier, and both the harness and waist belt straps have been constructed for easy adjustment.

Q. Is it safe to carry my baby in the “outward facing” position?

A. Yes, the BRITAX Baby Carrier provides an outward facing option for parents who desire it, however carefully read and follow all instructions before using the baby carrier.
  • Babies should be placed inward facing until they have head and neck control.

  • The Infant Insert should be used from eight to 14 pounds, if your child sits too low in the carrier, and should no longer be used once your baby's ears reach the top of the baby carrier.

For those caregivers who do not prefer to carry their children in the outward facing position, BRITAX has developed a Seat Extender insert. The Seat Extender insert is an accessory that allows you to keep larger children inward facing comfortably throughout the range of the carrier.

Q. What accessories are available for the BRITAX BABY CARRIER?

A. The BRITAX BABY CARRIER offers a 2-pack of bibs (available in white only) and a Seat Extender Insert (available in three fashions) as accessories.

Q. What is the CarryLong System and how does it work?

A. The new BRITAX BABY CARRIER line features the CarryLong System, which minimizes the risk of back and shoulder strain during extended wear by distributing weight across the shoulders, back and hips. The CarryLong System offers a combination of both a padded waist belt and padded shoulder straps, which have been engineered to provide maximum comfort for the parent.

WARNING: Continually check the baby carrier while in use to ensure that the baby is secure.

Q. What is the purpose of the Seat Extender Insert Accessory and how and when should I use it?

A. The Seat Extender Insert is an accessory that can be used with the BRITAX Baby Carrier once your child no longer requires use of the infant insert. The Seat Extender Insert provides a wider seating area by cradling your baby’s bottom and thighs, which allows your child to wrap or splay their legs around your waist when facing inward through the entire use of the carrier. This supports a wide, spread squatting position for your child and enhanced longer-wearing comfort for you through balanced weight distribution.

The Seat Extender can be quickly and easily attached to the baby carrier by simply sliding the two large loops of the insert through the waist belt of the carrier and zipping the insert into the carrier. (see user guide for more details)

Q. What replacement parts are available for the BRITAX BABY CARRIER?

A. The infant insert, upper connector and belt buckle are available as replacement parts.
