Though baby carriers are often adjustable in order to fit different body types and sizes, just the baby carrier itself might not be enough to satisfy the needs of your family. For this reason, baby carriers offer accessories that you can add on in order to make your carrier more versatile. For example, the Bebefit smart baby carrier offers two accessories: the infant insert and the teething pad.
The Bebefit smart baby carrier is recommended for babies aged 0 to 36 months old, or between 7 and 45 lbs. However, we recommend use of the infant insert for newborns until they are able to support their heads on their own (around 6 months of age, or until they reach about 12 pounds). The infant insert sits underneath your baby and extends up behind their back to securely support your baby’s neck and spine. It also sits your baby in an ergonomic M-position while in the carrier to encourage proper hip development. It is up to you to determine how long you should use the insert for, as long as your baby fits snugly in the Bebefit when the insert is removed.
As babies develop, their teeth will start to break through their gums. Teething usually occurs between 6 to 24 months of age. During this period, babies will attempt to put many things in their mouths in an attempt to reduce discomfort, as well as drool. Teething pads are placed over the pads of the carrier to give your baby a safe, clean place to teethe as well as making clean-up of drool easier. They can also help extend the longevity of your carrier by protecting the exterior pads from dirt and stains. The Bebefit smart baby carrier includes teething pads with your purchase, but can also be purchased separately.
