General Disclaimer

On my website you will find baby carriers, slings, and accessories of these products for sale and for hire. You will also find educational material around these in the form of text, audio, and visual. This information is provided solely for educating on the proper use of these items and providing beneficial information to ensure they are used safely and correctly, and therefore enjoyed by the user. 


I take the utmost care to provide valuable information on how best to use a baby carrier, but I cannot be responsible for the use of that information. The information I provide is of a general nature and not individually tailored for your situation. Please be aware that the generalised information I provide on baby carriers and slings is not a substitute for the advice given by your specialist or care provider. Any testimonial and promised results I may display on my website are based on my experience and those of my previous clients and customers. They are not guarantees that anyone else will achieve the same results.


You are solely responsible for your own safety and that of your baby at all time. You should be aware that using a baby carrier or a sling is a risky activity.  A baby carrier or sling is a fall hazard and a suffocation hazard. You are responsible for your own research on the suitability of this activity for yourself and your child.  Please use common sense when first using a carrier or sling. It is best to start practicing without your child. Use a toy first in the carrier as you learn how to tie/buckle it around your body and how it works. Have someone with you to spot you and your baby if it is one of your first attempts and stand over a soft surface to prevent serious injury if an accident occurs. No matter how experienced you are, go slow and take your time when placing your baby in and out of the carrier. Take the utmost care. Check your carrier or wrap frequently for any breakages or wear and tare and discontinue use if there is any broken buckles, ripped fabric, or holes in your carrier or sling. When in use, make sure you are following the TICKS guidelines, a universal set of guidelines for babywearing safety. That is that your baby is TIGHT in the carrier or sling, they are IN VIEW and you can see their face clearly and their airways are unobstructed, their CHIN is off their CHEST so that their airway isn’t compromised due to slumping, they are close enough to KISS meaning that they are high on your body where you can see them, and their SPINE is supported in it’s natural J-like shape so that they aren’t slumping. Please seek advice from your trusted professional before acting on the information I provide through my website. You must constantly monitor your child when they are in the carrier or sling. 


I am not responsible for viruses or any other damage which might occur as a result of downloading material from my website.


On my website I have links to third party sites who I have featured on. At the time of posting these links, their website was safe.  I do not have any control over these websites and am not responsible for their content. You should read their terms and conditions. I do not take responsibility for any transaction entered into between the visitor and the advertiser.

Specific Disclaimer

This disclaimer relates to the purchase of a baby carrier or sling from my website.


I only sell products that are of the highest quality and manufactured from trusted companies. I ensure your product arrives to you in perfect brand new condition and comes enclosed with in-depth instruction booklets. 


You are responsible for your own research on the suitability of using a carrier or sling for yourself and your child. Using a baby carrier or a sling is a risky activity and you should check with your trusted care-provider to get their support and advice first on this activity.


If there is any problems with the purchase or delivery of your product please see Returns & Exchanges and contact me on 


If you are capable of carrying your child in your arms, you should be capable of using a carrier or sling to support them there too. However, everyone is individual and getting advice from your trusted professional is best first to ensure the suitability of this activity for you. 

Specific Disclaimer

This disclaimer relates to the engagement of babywearing support services such as a private consultation or my online program ‘Babywearing Download’.


I take the utmost care in recommending advice on carriers that is safe and up-to-date. I make sure my advice is easy to follow and understand so that parents aren't overwhelmed and then can therefore implement safe and enjoyable baby-carrying. For private consultations, I make sure all carriers are clean and I am in good-health. For my online program, I make sure all chapters are working and they are easy to work through from a distance. 


It is your responsibility to take your time in understanding how to carry safely, check with your care provider or specialist that this activity is safe for you, and then first practice before you are confident. It is a good idea to practice with a doll, with someone around to spot you, and/or over a soft surface. You must take your time and constantly monitor your child when carrying and follow the TICKS guidelines. It is your responsibility to listen to the recommendations on how to carry safely and correctly so that you and your baby remain safe. You must do your own research to confirm this advice is right for you.

Consultations can take place in a location that is local to the Brisbane area.

'Babywearing Download' can be completed by those who are hearing or vision impaired as it is a program made up of text, audio, and visuals. You will need access to the internet via a computer or phone.  If you are capable of carrying your child in your arms, you should be capable of using a carrier or sling to support them there too and get advice on how to do this best. However, everyone is individual and getting advice from your trusted professional is best first to ensure the suitability of this activity for you.
