SAFETY & EDUCATION
Nessl is based on practical science-driven design. We want to make sure you know how safe our baby carrier is for you and your baby.
Baby Carrier Safety
Using a baby carrier can be beneficial for both you and your baby. That is why it’s important to us that you feel confident and safe while using your Nessl Baby Carrier.
Click here to watch the complete video tutorial on all of the different ways you can use your baby carrier.
Here are some tips to keep in mind while babywearing:
• Position your carrier tight enough so there’s no gap between your baby and your body, but loose enough so you can slide your hand into the carrier.
• Make sure you can see your baby’s face at all times to monitor their breathing.
• Your baby should be close enough to kiss the top of their head.
• Keep your baby’s chin off their chest. A good rule of thumb is to have a gap of about two fingers wide under their chin.
Car Seat Safety
The very fact that infant car seats are removable increases the chance of improper installation or improper use, which creates risk for an infant in a collision. Recent data by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that 50% of rear-facing car seats are not properly used.
This is what makes the Nessl Baby Carrier a safe option. Your properly installed car seat stays put, while just your baby and the Nessl carrier come with you when exiting your vehicle. We designed the Nessl Baby Carrier with input from Child Passenger Safety Technicians and product engineers with a focus on the parameters that allow for safe car seat use.
Independently Crash Tested
We crash tested the carrier at an independent lab that specializes in child transportation protection research.
Under each metric of safety, the Nessl Baby Carrier performed well within safety standards and similarly to a car seat without the Nessl Baby Carrier in it.
See below for a summary of the test results. For any questions on the safety of the Nessl Baby Carrier, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
