Because New Native Baby Carriers are non-adjustable they are sized to fit the parent or adult who will be carrying the child. Most parents need to be fitted for his or her own carrier. New Native Baby Carriers are 100% cotton and are pre shrunk. (Please wash for true size.)
It is helpful if you can take one measurement of each parent's chest. Place the measuring tape above the bust, under the armpits and all the way around the torso. (This is not your bra size, although pre-pregnancy bra size is a useful factor when determining sizing.)
In addition to this measurement several factors are taken into consideration when determining size, especially for those of you measuring on the border between sizes. Please consider the following:
Where are you in your pregnancy or how old is your baby? If you are in the last few weeks of your pregnancy or have a newborn you may need to drop an inch or so off of your above the bust chest measurement to compensate for expected weight loss.
Your height. This affects how long the carrier will be on your torso. Depending on torso length, very tall people can wear more than one size, and very short people may need to go smaller.
Your pre-pregnancy weight. This affects how you will bring the carrier up on your torso by filling out the carrier width wise. Also, do you carry most of your body weight up top or on the lower part of your body?
Do you have broad or narrow shoulders? If you have broad shoulders or a big bust or if you are dad with a big chest you might fill the carrier up a little more width wise. People with narrow shoulders may want to lean toward a smaller size.
Do you have a long or short torso? If you have a short torso you may need a smaller carrier. If you have a long torso you may have more options.
Fitted t-shirt size. Carrier size generally corresponds to your normal pre-pregnancy fitted t-shirt size in combination with the other factors mentioned above.
Carrier Fit: Proper sizing will result in ordering the correctly sized carrier that will fit most comfortably for the parent and most securely for the child. To do this you'll want the bulk of the baby's weight to be carried in your center of gravity, which is where the body naturally distributes the weight of the baby when it's inside of you. This is the most comfortable place for your body to carry large amounts of weight for long periods of time. The carrier hangs within the center of your gravity when the lowest part of the carrier (with the baby in it) reaches below your belly button but, above the crease of your leg where it bends at your torso, and ideally right in between these two points. If you have the correct size and are wearing the carrier correctly, you should get a sense that your baby feels safe and secure inside the pouch and that it is comfortable on you.
New Native was started in 1992 by Nancy Main, who sought to provide a tool to promote happy, healthy, and harmonious parenting relationships. Inspired by an array of babywearing items from indigenous cultures around the globe, Nancy created the New Native Baby Carrier as a modern babywearing carrier: a simple, elegant baby sling that meets the caregiver's and baby's need for close physical contact, provides easy access for breastfeeding, and helps support baby's physical, mental, emotional, and immune system development.
New Native is committed to giving back to the global community that inspired the creation of its baby pouch. The company has started several programs aimed at giving back. The Friends of Bonding Program subsidizes the cost of New Native Baby Carriers for low-income families, helping ensure that everyone, regardless of economic status, can enjoy the benefits of babywearing. New Native's Doula Program provides carriers to midwives, doulas, childbirth educators, and lactation consultants. The company's Contribution Program donate carriers to organizations and events that promote babywearing, breastfeeding, and attachment parenting, as well as to many shelters and rehabilitation centers. Finally, New Native has donated hundreds of carriers to organizations working in disaster relief and makes financial contributions to social justice groups like Co-op America, Color of Change, Habitat for Humanity, and Corporate Accountability International.
UrthChild is happy to offer New Native's products, and support a company that not only promotes attachment parenting and breastfeeding, but also supports social justice and environmental causes.
