*How old does my baby need to be to use the Scootababy?
Typically age 4 to 6 months - baby must be able to hold his or her head up independently. When your baby reaches a certain age, it becomes natural to carry baby on your side, straddling your hip… this is the perfect age to begin using the Scootababy.
*Is there a weight limit for the baby?
The Scootababy can be safely used for babies up to 40 lbs. You can get years of use from it – this is the sort of carrier you know baby won't outgrow until they're big enough to ask to walk alone. It can be comfortably used to age four.
*Can it be used on both the right and left side of the wearer?
Absolutely! Our carrier is designed to be worn on either side. All you need to do is position the seat where you'd like baby to sit. The shoulder straps function exactly the same on either side. (The outside fabric of the seat will always face outward, and the soft lining will always be in contact with the baby – there is no need to change anything about the carrier to switch sides.)
*Is it possible to nurse my baby while using the Scootababy?
It's simple and discreet for babies to nurse while in the carrier – especially slightly older babies who can help position themselves (they may need to lean over a bit to reach the opposite side).
*What sizes of adults can wear this baby carrier?
The Scootababy is adjustable to fit adults with waist size from approximately 24 inches up to 47 inches. The waist size can adjust down to 19 inches if you remove the sliding waist pad.
Official Scootababy Care Instructions
To keep your Scootababy looking new longer, we recommend that regular care be limited to spot cleaning with a damp cloth. The Scootababy can also be machine washed in cold water and hang or machine dry.
Machine washing instructions:
* Optional: detach the fleece shoulder panel, and take the sliding pad off the waist belt. These can be washed with the carrier; detaching will prevent excessive twisting in the wash.
* Machine wash separately in cold water, gentle cycle. Use mild detergent only, no bleach or fabric softener.
* Reshape and lay flat to air dry for best results, or tumble dry low.
