2) Hold theBabaSling with your left hand with theBabaSling facing forward put your right arm through theBabaSling and over your head placing shoulder padding over your shoulder and so theBabaSling is across your body; theBabaSling label should sit just below your collarbone and the padded shoulder strap should be sitting comfortably across the middle of your shoulder.

3) Without unclipping take off theBabaSling.

Important Note: Make sure that you always hear an audible click when fastening each buckle and always fasten the safety buckle first when using theBabaSling.
