Neko Switch Baby
The Neko Switch Baby is a luxury jacquard cotton carrier, practical and comfortable, allowing front and back, facing-in carry positions. A generous size range makes it a great choice from birth through to toddler, with a weight range of 3.5kg / 8lbs to 15kg / 33lbs.
The Neko Switch Baby Carrier
Designed by a babywearing consultant to ensure safe support as your baby is carried in an ergonomic deep seat, spread-squat M-position. This positioning while babywearing is best for ensuring a healthy softly curving J shape spine for your growing child. The carrier has a fully adjustable back panel, which grows with your baby, supporting their head, neck and natural hip development in both front and back carrying positions.
When babywearing, it is as incredibly important to ensure the correct, close fit for both parent and child together. The unique two option fitting system of the Neko Switch Baby Carrier - shoulder straps to mid-body panel and shoulder strap to waistband - create a snug fit, even for petite parents and very young babies. An adjustable back panel, generously padded, supportive waist belt and padding around little legs complete the comfort package for you and your precious little one together.
Tested to EU safety standards and made from soft, supportive, jacquard woven cotton with an array of colour and pattern choices to suit any taste. Stylish and aesthetic design features include designated pockets for unused buckles to fold away into, so there are no unsightly buckles dangling when not in use!
The Neko Switch is an easy-to-use, versatile baby carrier that effortlessly transforms into a practical, generous toddler carrier - a simple, affordable luxury investment and active parents who need a no-hassle option for busy lifestyles, which will last for years, growing with their new addition to their family.

A truly unique feature of the Neko Switch Baby is the shoulder strap system which offers 2-points of attachment. The standard, shoulder strap to mid-body panel and the unique, shoulder strap to waistband option, designed specifically for babies 0-6 months.
If a carrier with shoulder strap to mid-panel attachments is over-tightened it can flatten the fabric across babies back putting strain on their spine. Attaching the shoulder straps to the waistband avoids this possibility and supports babies’ spine in a natural curved position similar to that of a wrap, optimal for a young baby. The standard shoulder strap to side-panel fitting is then used from 6 months upward.
