Before fastening buckles, feed the hook end of the buckle through the safety elastic. This is imperative for safety; if the buckle were to come undone, the safety elastic would catch the buckle, preventing it from opening completely.
1 Before putting on the carrier, cross and secure the shoulder straps. Make sure to run the hook end of each side buckle through its safety elastic and fasten to the catch end. Listen for the 'click' to ensure secure attachment. Fasten the waist belt buckle at your back. Listen for the 'click'. Tighten as comfortable.
2 Slip both shoulder straps over your head, making an "X" on your back. Now you should have a pouch with enough room to comfortably insert baby. Tip: Keep shoulder straps flat for comfort.
3 Carefully support baby as you place her into the body of the GO Carrier. Baby's legs should come out of the lower side openings and hug your stomach.
4 Lift and hold baby to your body. Tighten side buckles as needed for a comfortable, secure fit.
