We have extensively researched the position and comfort of the baby with our medical board of neurologists, doctors for pre-maturing, midwives, and baby physicians. The unanimous conclusion is that izzzi is very comfortable because of the natural way of carrying – especially the first 6 months after birth. In fact, numerous tests have shown the babies are so comfortable they will easily fall asleep.
Don’t worry, he will.
A small percentage of kids are born with hip dysplasia. If this is the case with your newborn, we strongly recommend seeking professional advice before using any carrier or sling. If you have already purchased your izzzi carrier and you get negative advice because of pre-existing conditions like hip dysplasia, izzzi will refund your carrier immediately upon presentation of medical documentation.

izzzi has been succesfullly tested according to EN 13209-2:2016.
Yes, it’s one of the reasons we started designing our carrier. Wearing izzzi allows you to have eye contact all the time, helping you to connect to the essence of becoming a parent: carefree, close, and in the moment.
izzzi has been tested up to 9 kg. Medically it has been proven that the position of izzzi is best for most babies in the first 6 months after birth. After this period (around the same time it becomes mostly uncomfortable for parents to remain walking around with 9 kg strapped to their bodies) babies should start moving to a more upright position.

The T.I.C.K.S. acronym is widely used to describe a set of important rules in the world of baby carrying. Naturally, we used these rules as design directives during the development of our product. Consider them the five commandments of baby carrying.
Tight: Carriers should be tight —we prefer the word close— enough for you to eﬀortlessly hug your baby. Too much slack in the fabric will cause your baby to slump, possibly hindering their breathing. Ill-fitting carriers can also cause strain on your shoulders and back.
In view at all times: Continuous eye contact with your baby will allow you to 1) Lovingly gaze at the wonder you put onto this world and 2) Constantly monitor your child’s breathing and general mood.
Close enough to kiss: Your baby’s head should be as close to your chin as possible while still comfortable. Angling your head slightly forward should easily enable you to kiss your baby on the head or forehead. izzzi’s natural carrying position allows you to do this without cramping your neck.
Keep chin off the chest: Babies should never be ‘curled up’ with the chin forced onto their chest, as this can restrict breathing. Correct positioning in the izzzi carrier ensures there is always a space of at least a finger width under your baby’s chin to keep him safe.
Supported back: The tightness of any carrier will be crucial in the support of a baby’s spine, but it’s also important not to overtighten. izzzi’s adjustable system makes sure you get the support just right.
Yes, our product ticks all the necessary boxes. The watchful eye of our medical board ensured the TICKS principle was a directive throughout the whole design process.
There is no such thing as the best position. In general, the rules a carrier should follow are summarized in T.I.C.K.S. In the case of izzzi, our medical board confirmed that the position in izzzi is similar as in mammies’ belly and is very familiar and comfortable for the newborn.
