Baby Carrier Maintenance Guide
Every product related to your baby should be extra taken care of. You will use your baby carrier to hold your baby close to you, so it’s important that the carrier is in its utmost condition.
To clean the carrier, make sure you take a look at the label first to get an idea about the material that was used. The washing or cleaning process depends a lot on the material. The label often contains instructions about what to do and what not to do. Despite that, you should avoid using any bleach or harsh chemical products since even a little residual can prove harmful for your baby. Most of these baby carriers are machine washable which makes the work a lot easier for you. But you shouldn’t use the machine all the time. With frequent machine washing, the color of the carrier might start to fade. In that case, use a soapy solution with lukewarm water to wash the carrier by hand. If there are any stubborn stains visible, apply some extra detergent on the stains and use a fabric brush or a soft sponge to scrub over the area. After a thorough cleaning, rinse the carrier with clean water.
Let it air dry completely before using it. Keep the carrier away from direct sunlight as it can cause discoloration. Throughout the cleaning process, constantly check for any damages in the material, straps, or buckles. A little damaging can worsen in your next usage so make sure you take care of any damage that might befall your carrier. You can apply oil in the buckles to keep them shiny and well-functioned.
Follow this process every two weeks so you can enjoy a long-lasting service from your baby carrier. Since your baby’s health and safety are entangled with the carrier, it needs to be maintained regularly.
When you decide to buy a product that will be used for your baby, you have to be extra careful. You have to take every little detail into account so your baby can have the best of what you can offer. We hope this list helped you in picking out a baby carrier.
