Belle carriers are machine washable, although hand-washing, delicate cycles and/or front loading machines will increase the life of your carrier. Cold water is preferred and the carriers should be line-dried.
Fit and Cruz have 100% polyester microsuede and mesh outer shell with 97% cotton/3% spandex sateen lining.
All Belle carriers incorporate two welded steel rings in the waistbelt, and nylon buckles for the shoulder straps
Metal rings are safer. The Belle is designed to carry the baby’s weight primarily on the waistbelt, so it is important that the waistbelt is extremely secure. The rings are made of welded steel and are extremely strong. The rings may need to be tightened a little after wearing the carrier for a while, but when used properly, the rings will not allow the waistbelt to come undone.
Belle carriers come in one size and are automatically adjusted to fit most users. The waistbelt is 49 inches long. If you are a larger parent, we suggest you visit one of our dealers and try on the carrier to make sure it will work for you.
The Belle is ideal for babies 8–35 pounds. For a smaller baby it is important to that your baby will fit in the carrier in the normal position – one leg out each side of the carrier – comfortably. We do not recommend folding your baby's legs inside the carrier as this may create a fall hazard.
Always follow included instructions. Always inspect your carrier for defects before using it. Always support your baby with one hand while putting on or taking off the carrier. Never undo the waistbelt when carrying your child.
While using any baby carrier, you should wear sturdy shoes and take extra care to avoid fall hazards. You should never handle sharp objects or cook while wearing your baby. You should never jostle your baby by engaging in high impact activities like dancing or jogging, and you should never ride a bike, motorbike, scooter, skateboard, or any other moving apparatus or vehicle while wearing your baby. Lastly, you should never wear your baby in an automobile – children should always be in an approved car seat.
