All Artipoppe woven wraps, ring slings and baby carriers are designed for ergonomic babywearing only, meaning:
A little reminder to never wrap your baby in the “cradle” position. It is a high risk carrying method, in which the chin can slump forward on the chest and the baby can suffocate within a few minutes without making a sound. Next to that the cradle position doesn’t provide a good Spread Squatting Position which is optimal for the hip development of the baby.
When selecting what size wrap to purchase it is important to consider what type of carry you would like to do, as well as what size you and your baby are. In general a size 6 is good for a Front Wrap Cross Carry as seen in our “How to wrap?” section. You can pick a shorter size when experimenting other carries, like a rucksack carry or choose a size 7 if extra length is needed.
Please read our “Size Guide” and safety guidelines before you start wrapping.
Artipoppe Zeitgeist Baby Carriers are one size fits all, and are suitable for carrying children 7 kg to 20 kg (15 lb – 45 lb). It is adjustable for caregiver waist sizes 68cm – 120cm (27″-47″). We are developing a version for smaller babies and a version for toddlers too.
If all safety instructions are considered it is advised to use an Artipoppe wrap from birth until both caregiver and child no longer feel comfortable with it.
Consult an expert if your infant was born with a low birth weight, such as a premature or twins, or if your infant has respiratory illness or other respiratory problems. Extra vigilance is required with these babies.
Attend to and check on baby often, especially those under 4 months of age.
If all safety instructions are considered, it is advised that the carrier be used from when the baby is 7 kg (6 months) – 20 kg (15 lb – 45 lb). We are developing a version for smaller babies and a version for toddlers too.
For low birthweight babies and children with medical conditions, seek advice from a health professional before using the product.
Artipoppe woven wraps and ring slings are being woven and finished in the Netherlands. For the materials we make use of specific expertise, such as cashmere from Mongolia, wool from Scotland, merino* from New-Zealand, Qiviut from North-America and cotton from Egypt.
The design and fabric of our Zeitgeist Baby Carriers are made in the Netherlands. The final product is manufactured in Lithuania.
Our scarves are made in Florence, Italy, the centre of fine woven woollens since the Middle Ages.
*we are paying close attention to our merino suppliers and request “mulesing-free” certificates for all merino yarns we source.
