The buckle on the shoulder strap is equipped with a double pull mechanism – giving you the chance to adjust your manduca First to perfectly fit you and your child.
Functional and smart
Good reasons for easy, lightweight manduca®
Simply ingenious: the manduca® back extension
Thanks to the patented back extension, you have an extremely flexible baby carrier in manduca First which you can effortlessly adapt to your baby’s height – to grow with him/her. This not only sounds convenient, it is convenient! You can use the back extension from day one – after all, it’s an ingenious invention for children of all ages:
- For newborns as a head and neck support – mainly with the use of the infant seat
- For supporting your baby’s head when he/she falls asleep – you can even softly open the back extension while wearing your baby in the front
- For stabilising a restless baby
- For larger children as a support in the shoulder area – enabling manduca to grow with your child so you can also safely carry your child when he/she is older and becomes tired of walking or does not want to walk
Orthopaedically correct, simply perfect: the M-Position®
The spread-squat position is the natural position that a newborn automatically takes when he/she is lifted up. Your baby automatically bends his/her legs – like a monkey – to instinctively get ready to be carried. We at manduca call this the M-Position®, because your baby’s bottom, together with the bent legs, forms a large “M”. M for manduca.
manduca ensures your child is continuously in the M-Position, which is recommended by orthopaedists and midwives alike. The M-Position® is the natural sitting and carrying position of a child, as it takes the pressure caused by the child’s weight off the still sensitive hip and spine.
manduca® First for newborns too: thanks to the infant seat
The infant seat for newborns and small babies is already integrated into your manduca First – enabling your baby to be carried in manduca First even shortly after birth (from a weight of 3,500 g). Here is where your baby can feel comfort, security and closeness to you, all of which are so very important.
The fact that the infant seat is already integrated into your manduca First is doubly convenient: on the one hand, you do not have any extra parts which can go lost and, on the other, you do not need to buy expensive accessories. And when your baby doesn’t need the infant seat anymore, you simply roll it together and store it in the built-in pocket.
With manduca First, you have a baby carrier which is there for you from birth to preschool. It’s great that manduca First grows with your baby!
