The waist belt of the Rookie sits higher than on many other carriers. This means you can use the Rookie even if your baby was born via caesarean section.
All Rookies are "one-size-fits-all" baby carriers, which means that tall men and short women (or vice versa) can use the same carrier. Whether XS or XL - thanks to the adjustable waist belt, the carrier can be put on up to a waist circumference of approx. 115 cm.
Your baby should sit in the recommended squat-splay position, i.e. the legs are at minimum at a 90° angle and the back is slightly rounded. This supports the healthy development of your child's spine and muscles. The adjustable bar (10-40cm) allows the carrier to be adjusted to the size of your child: the bar should always be adjusted so that it runs from the back of the one knee to the back of the other knee. The head can be additionally fixed with a head support. The Rookie has been certified by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute as a hip-friendly baby carrier.
Carrying it while facing forward is not recommended by experts, as the squatting, spread posture is not always guaranteed. This is of great importance for the development of the baby's spine. When carried facing forward, the legs are stretched, which can affect the baby's soft hip joints. Another reason is the lack of eye contact with the mother or father. The babies are therefore unable to recognise facial and verbal feedback, which is a primary basis for communication, especially for babies.
