Bitybean's baby carrier is designed to keep your infant close or, for when your toddler needs a little boost, or a nap during a busy day on the go. Bitybean should not be used during jogging, or other rigorous exercise or sports.
4. Does Bitybean's carrier provide adequate neck support for baby?
We've worked closely with multiple parents and babywearing experts in the development of our carrier. Babies typically have full head control by 3 months which is why a baby must be both 3 months old and weigh 8 lb before being carried in our carrier. A baby must also be able to sit unaided before being worn in the back carry, which is about 5-6 months. We developed the hood option specifically to support the head if baby falls asleep.
5. How should Bitybean be stored?
Bitybean can be stored unpacked, or inside the included pouch. For optimum compression, and to reduce wrinkling, we recommend holding Bitybean at its shoulders, folding it lengthwise with the straps tucked inside, and then rolling it tightly from the bottom up.
6. How should Bitybean's baby carrier be cleaned?
Spot clean as needed with wet cloth. For best results we recommend hand washing. Your carrier can also be machine washed separately in cold water on gentle cycle with mild detergent, but should always be air dried. Do not use detergents with bleach, perfumes, dyes, chlorine, or optical brighteners.
Bitybean uses only the highest quality and safest dyes possible to ensure a product that will retain its color, but is free from harmful chemicals. There is always a possibility that colors will fade depending on the quality of water and detergent type used. Different colors may require different types of detergents for best results. Please research your local water quality and detergent ingredients for best results according to color, as well as spot test before washing. Bitybean cannot be held responsible for faded colors due to laundering
7. Can I take my Bitybean baby carrier in the water?
Yes, Bitybean's carrier is ideally suited to splashing about in shallow water with your baby because of its nylon and polyester construction, and quick dry fabrics. We recommend front use only so that you can see your baby at all times to make sure they are comfortable and above water.
