How do I preserve the natural curve of my baby’s back?

How old is your Baby?

If Baby’s younger than 4-5 months, his/her back may not be in a curve because:

  • - Baby's knees are not positioned high enough
  • - Baby just woke up, he’s stretching
  • - Baby’s fussing
  • - Baby needs to pee
  • - Straightening his/her back, and trying to find support can be a way of expressing his/her anger or discomfort

If Baby’older than 4-5 months :

Baby has acquired better head control and stays awake for longer periods of time. When worn during waking moments, baby may straighten his/her spine even when in a correct position. That is quite normal, the spine will go back to a rounded shape when baby’s sleeping - this guarantees good back support.

7 months-old Baby, awake and looking around - his back is straight :
