FAQ - Stokke®Limas

How many hours a day and until when can I carry my baby?

Babywearing can be unlimited! You can carry your baby as much as it suits you and your infant. By carrying them, you are fulfilling your baby's need to be close to you. In time, your baby will seek to discover their environment themselves and will let you know when they wish to be against you and when they are ready to discover the world.

How can I make sure that my baby is sitting correctly in the carrier?

BACK PANEL: The back panel should reach your baby’s neck to provide head support. Always make sure your baby’s nose and mouth are free for easy breathing.

SPREAD-SQUAT POSITION: To promote healthy hip development and ergonomics for your baby, the base of the back panel should support your baby from one knee to the other, and the knees should be slightly higher than the hips.

CLOSE ENOUGH TO KISS: You should be able to kiss your baby on top of their head easily. If your baby is too high or too low, simply adjust the waistbelt. Carrying your baby too low might cause you back pain.

CARRIER SNUG ENOUGH: For your baby’s safety, when you lean forward your baby should stay close to you.

COMFORT: Make sure the straps are not twisted on your back and fan them out nicely on your shoulders for better weight distribution.

How should I carry my baby during the Summer?

  • Ensure that you do not dress your baby too warmly. The baby wrap or baby carrier already counts as one layer of clothing.
  • Dress your baby to protect them from the sun. Choose natural fabrics such as cotton, wool or silk clothing and lightweight leggings rather than trousers.
  • You can apply a light layer of mineral sun cream to any areas of the body exposed to the sun or buy a special baby sun cream with UV protection. Top with a sun hat and you're good to go!
  • Babywearing during the summer is best done in the shade or indoors, especially during the hottest periods, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Offer your baby water regularly. The smallest babies should be offered breastmilk or formula milk.
  • It is normal to sweat at the point of contact with your baby, remember that adults are also sweating "for" the baby to cool their body temperature as well as their own.
  • -A carrier with Mesh material can also be a good option as the mesh fabric is more breathable.

Why do the Stokke® Limas™ carriers only propose inward-facing carrying options?

We recommend three positions for the Stokke® Limas™ carriers: front carry facing-in, hip carrying facing-in and back carrying facing-in. This excludes the baby facing outwards. Here are the reasons why:

In the Stokke® Limas™ carriers, only the facing-in carrying positions allow your baby to sit in an ergonomic "M" shaped spread-squat position with a rounded back posture (babies' backs are not yet strong enough to hold themselves straight like an adult). This position is impossible to achieve with the baby facing outwards.

When your child is sitting inward-facing in a Stokke® Limas™ carrier, they can snuggle against the person carrying them, can put their head down to shield themselves from external stimuli if they are too intense or simply if they want to go to sleep. This is only possible if the baby is facing the wearer.

When you’re carrying your child facing inward, they stay close to your center of gravity. The weight is nicely distributed around your body, which makes babywearing very comfortable. In an outward-facing position, the weight of the child is not as close to the wearer's body and will tend to pull forwards, thus creating tension in the wearer’s back.

How should the Stokke® Limas™ carriers be washed?

All of the LIMAS Stokke® Limas™ carriers are treated with a sanforisation after weaving. This is a process combining water vapor, heat and pressure to preshrink the fabric so that there is minimal shrinkage when washed. The carriers can be used as soon as they are purchased without needing to wash them beforehand.

Here are our recommendations to ensure that your Stokke® Limas™ carrier retains its colors and softness over time:

  • Wash at 40° C, on a gentle spin
  • Use a liquid detergent for delicates that does not contain bleach or whitening agents
  • Close all of the buckles before washing, you can remove the belt if you wish. You can wash the shoulder padding with the carrier.
  • For an even more delicate wash, place the baby carrier in a washing bag or inside a pillowcase
  • Dry your baby carrier naturally, do not tumble dry
  • Do not iron the belt

Do the Stokke® Limas™ carriers guarantee good posture?

If used properly, Stokke® Limas™ carriers perfectly respect your baby's physiology. To make sure your baby is sitting correctly in their carrier, you can check the following points:

  • The carrier and carrying option you’re using correspond to your baby’s age and weight
  • Your baby is “close enough to kiss”: you should be able to give them a kiss on top of their head easily
  • The back panel is high enough to cover the neck, but the baby’s nose and mouth are free
  • The baby has a round back and their knees are higher than their hips (spread-squat position)
  • Your carrier is tight enough: when you lean forward, your baby must stay close to your body
