Visible and Kissable (TM): Nursing and Babywearing Safety Tips

1. Babywearing and nursing are independent skills, best established separately before combining.
   *Established nursing means nursing without positioning props, aids, etc. and latch is well-established.
   *Established carrier use is being able to use and adjust your carrier independently, safely, and confidently.
2. Babies nursing in a carrier must always be brought back to upright and tight positioning.
3. Baby’s face must always be visible in the carrier, even when nursing.
