Always fasten the safety straps and remember that a child back carrier should never be used as a place of safekeeping for your child without supervision. Even if you place the carrier with the child inside on the ground brie? You must supervise to ensure the child does not lean out and tip over. Overloading or improper use can endanger the safety of your child. When the child is in the carrier it is likely to be higher than your own height so beware ceiling height, dangerous corners, low branches, entrance ways etc. Give your child regular breaks, especially in cold weather to ensure good blood circulation, and remember that young children are more affected by a change of temperature than adults.
