But and for many this can be the reason they fall out of love with their Connecta, the webbing which is used to tighten the carrier can twist as you pull it through buckles, making the carrier then difficult to adjust further or uncomfortable for wearer. So this blog is dedicated to preventing this twisting for happening. How can you stop it from happening?
The key to tightening a Connecta Baby Carrier is to not over tighten the carrier. Pulling too tight will often be one of the main reasons webbing has twisted. Also important is to ensure you pull slack in webbing in the direction it came from and to keep the upper and lower parts of webbing parallel with each other. Don't be tempted to pull the webbing down or up. This rule should be followed whether wearing baby in the front or back carries. You may also find that holding the buckle straight as you tighten and after you have brought slack to it will help prevent it twisting too.
Lifting babies weight and removing the effect of gravity by lifting from underneath their bottom will help make tightening easier, and thus you won't need to pull as tight. A final tip is to tighten as close to the buckle you are adjusting as possible and pull through a little bit at a time rather than trying to pull all the slack through at once. Try to bring slack as close to the buckle as possible, just in the same way you would bring slack in a slip knot or ring sling carry to the tightening system. The buckles of a Connecta Baby Carrier are just another type of tightening system.
The owner of Connecta has also told me that if twisting happens a lot and continually twisting that you can 'reset' it. To do this soak the webbing in bowl of hot water overnight.
I hope that explanation helps you stay in love with your Connecta. This video explains the principles I have just described above too. Apologise though, I appear to have edited the first 20 seconds out by accident.
