Why choose MHUG and not just any baby carrier

What are the differences between a MHUG baby carrier and a common baby carrier?

In MHUG baby carriers, the physiological position of the newborn is respected. The well-being of the bearer's back is guaranteed, since the child's weight is spread over a large surface area, unlike other baby carriers.

The structure of the MHUG supports, soft and enveloping, does not compress or press on the baby's spine. The seated position, and not hanging (as in many baby carriers), allows you to unload the weight on the bottom and not on the genitals.

MHUG baby carriers can be worn in different positions, they don't strain your back and you can use them for years!

When can I start taking my child to a MHUG?

From now on, with the right technique. That is, in front, baby in fetal position facing the chest. The vertical position will help the newborn control gastric reflux, which is often very painful. Gradually and after a few weeks, you can start trying to get him to sit with his legs apart. Without ever straining. Every child reacts and grows differently. Sitting in the kangaroo position can help prevent hip dysplasia. All children love the contact with their mother or father's body, it is necessary for them. Even premature babies benefit enormously from babywearing, also called "therapy baby carrier". So you can start from birth and continue up to 15 kg and beyond. After about 18 months your baby carrier will become a pocket stroller, when the child is tired of walking and needs a "lift".

Can I use a MHUG baby carrier even if I have had a Caesarean section?

Most women who have a normal recovery can use it about 3 weeks after giving birth. Of course you have to use more caution, for example fasten the base higher than the cut and wait a few more days in the presence of discomfort or pain. If difficulties persist 6 weeks after the cesarean, it is advisable to consult your obstetrician or gynecologist.

Everyone has their say... who should I listen to?

To yourself, first of all. Once you have learned the basics and learned with awareness how to carry your child safely, do not listen to those who have their say (often without foundation) to discourage you. You and your baby enjoy closeness and intimacy, the way only you know how to build, without interference.

MHUG respects the development of the spine

A child is constantly growing and the naturalness of its development must not be forced. The spine, a strong but at the same time very delicate organ, must be protected: the effects of wrong habits can manifest themselves even after a long time and will be more harmful if the problems have been neglected.

It's not just the size that changes over time, the shape of the
spine varies a lot in the first few months: At birth, a transformation begins that will end in adulthood, so that the C-shaped curvature of the spine gradually
will orient in the shape of a double S.

All MHUG supports support your child evenly, respecting the natural curvature of their spine.

MHUG respects the development of the hips

Under no circumstances should a baby in a carrier appear to be “hanging”.

If you force your legs into a stretched position
too soon, the hips (not yet mature and in soft cartilage) are
forced and there is the risk of causing not only discomfort, but also more serious effects (e.g. dysplasia).
As with the spine, attention must therefore be paid to the hips, especially in the first months of life.

In a MHUG carrycot, the hips are naturally wide apart, with the thighs supported by the support and the knees bent. In this position, called "M" or "folded spread" (often defined with the English term Spread Squatting Position ), the child's weight is well discharged without generating pressure on the hips.

We care about the comfort of Mom and Dad

The heavier the child becomes, the more important it is that the support allows for its weight to be distributed over an adequate surface of the carrier's torso.

In all MHUG supports the shoulder straps / fabric that rests on your shoulders is wide, so the muscle near the neck, the trapezius, is not used; in this way, the child's weight is well distributed on the adult's back.

In Mei Tai, the waist belt provides good lumbar support.

The certainty of certified raw materials

The material with which a baby carrier is made is an important element: small children begin to know the world with their mouths and tend to suck anything; the fabric of the baby carrier is there, within their reach.

The fabrics we use for our Mei Tai and our Bamboo are non-toxic, transpiring, and made from natural fibers.

Protection in a hug

Contact, not distance between you and your baby

There are heavily padded supports on the market, promoted with the illusion that they are safer for the baby.

Our choice starts from a consideration: it is essential that a mother constantly " feels " her child close. The fewer layers there are between her and her creature, the more she will be able to perceive its breathing , warn if something is wrong (for example, apneas), in a sort of constant and vigilant monitoring.

A MHUG carrier, unlike preformed baby carriers, is soft and enveloping, and adapts perfectly to the growing child's body.

Preserve the health of the cervical tract

We remind you that up to about 4 months a baby is not able to support the weight of the head
autonomously, therefore the presence of adequate support is a fundamental element; it remains an important element even when, growing up, he will be able to support the weight of his head on his own: it often happens that the child falls asleep and in this way he will be protected.

Our Mei Tais have a wide adjustable collar that allows you to support the baby's little head well; in our bands the same support function is performed by the fabric itself: in this way the head will not fall "pendling" when he falls asleep, and your child will not be literally tossed around when you move.

What is Babywearing?

Babywearing means "wearing - or carrying - your baby attached to you in a soft baby carrier. This practice has been adopted by mothers all over the world for thousands of years. The benefits of prolonged mother-baby contact are considerable: both practical, physical and above all psychological. For both.

The concept of the continuum

It is a treatise on human nature written by Jeann Liedloff which places emphasis on that very first phase of the child's life which is called the "in arms phase". An intimate connection that has the ability to reassure and convey the feeling of being wanted and deserving of being in the world.

What is skin-to-skin?

It is a natural method, which has become revolutionary. It is the basis of marsupiotherapy (or kangaroo mother care), discovered by chance in Colombia in 1978 by two doctors: due to an insufficiency of incubators in the tins of Bogota, the babies were kept close to the mothers' bodies for as long as possible . Thanks to the prolonged skin-to-skin contact, the conditions stabilized. Dr Martinez, one of the two researchers who discovered it, specifies: "more than anything else, the method ensures a great strengthening of the bond between mother and child and supports an emotional balance (...) it is a model of humanized care" .

All Italian production

100% Made in Italy, from day one: entirely Italian workmanship, the real and demonstrable one! A choice that is consistently maintained even after more than 16 years, despite the temptation of low-cost overseas production.

Producing locally means more control, more certainty on the origin of the materials, protection of workers.

We know that the loosely knit law allows the wording "Made in Italy" to be affixed even if a large part of the processing takes place abroad, often outside Europe, where the conditions of workers and workplaces are not always fair and healthy . We, with pride (and a lot of effort!) produce everything in Italy.
