Comfort and Support

The Cairis features our unique Strata-linea® waistband, which prevents digging in at the waist & avoids any discomfort from the buckle. Our specially developed ‘Flare’ straps; padded shoulder straps that fan out, provide cushioning over your shoulders and allows you to spread the fabric out under your child to increase support.

Choosing a Size

The Cairis baby carrier is available in 2 sizes, each with unique features to suit your child as they grow.


The baby cairis is highly adjustable (see "Room to Grow") and suitable for carrying from newborn up to around 30 months old, at which point the toddler cairis becomes more comfortable.


Extra padding has been added to the waist band of the toddler cairis for additional lumbar support. The body panel has seat darts & ‘legs out padding’, contouring a larger child’s shape & aiding comfort. Suitable from 2-5 years.

Baby Cairis: Room to Grow

The baby cairis is carefully designed to adjust with your baby as they grow.

Height Adjustment

The fully reversible waistline has no stiff foam and can be rolled to adjust the height of the sling. This is particularly useful when carrying a newborn.

Width Adjustment

Use the ‘Cynch’ provided with your Cairis to create the correct panel width for your baby, it should be from knee pitt to knee pitt & support their natural position.
