ABOUT THE KAHUBABY CARRIER
The KāhuBaby Sunshine Baby
The KāhuBaby Sunshine Carrier is super lightweight and quick to dry. It’s very compact, and fits easily into a changing bag, a large handbag or under your pram. We’ve designed the KāhuBaby Sunshine Carrier to be an ideal baby carrier for travelling, for days at the beach, for holidays, and for trips out closer to home. It’s versatile too, and because it dries so quickly after getting wet or after washing, it’s our number one choice of baby carrier for rainy or muddy walks.
Just like our organic cotton KāhuBaby carriers, the KāhuBaby Sunshine Carrier has padded shoulder straps that are comfortable without being bulky. The baby carrier fits closely to your body, and distributes baby’s weight brilliantly around your body rather than putting lots of strain on one area of your shoulders or back. With its flexible waistband, Simple Togetherness with your child is just a moment away.
Suitable from newborn though to toddlerhood, the KāhuBaby Sunshine Carrier adjusts easily to comfortably hold your baby in an ergonomic position. The simple cinching mechanism is designed for total adjustability, with a built-in comfort stopper. This means safe and comfortable carrying with babies and toddlers.
KahuBaby’s unique cinching adjustor for the base of your carrier enables you to simply alter the width of your KahuBaby Carrier. It makes your KahuBaby Carrier suitable for carrying newborn babies – just gently pull the webbing into the narrowest setting. There are infinite size adjustments, all simply done by altering the length of the cinching webbing. From 5-6 months, you’ll have the base on the widest setting.
Carry every which way with KahuBaby! 4 carrying positions means options for you and your child. Your favourite carrying position will depend on your child’s developmental stage, and what works best for your family at that time.
Front carry, facing parent/carer – newborn until walking age
In a KahuBaby Carrier, your child learns about the world from a safe place, and from your height. Your child learns language and a myriad of social cues when facing into you, and is still able to look around and take in the scenery.
Hip carry – 4 months +
Carrying an older baby or toddler on your hip is instinctive, and as humans we’ve been doing it for millennia. You’ll find your baby gets a good view from your hip, and with KahuBaby your arms are both free to get stuff done.
Front carry, facing outwards – 5 months +
We know from working with parents and carers, that at times some children are happier facing outwards while being carried. KahuBaby recommend carrying your child in this position for 20-30 minutes at a time, only while your child is awake, and no younger than 5 months of age.
Back carry – 6 months +
If you have an older baby or a toddler, you may find it more comfortable to carry your child on your back. With KahuBaby, you can do this own your own, without assistance from another adult. Step-by-step instructions are included with your KahuBaby Carrier, and you can find our instructions on their website too. We recommend that your baby is sitting unassisted before carrying him/her on your back.
