Transcript: Caboo + Organic.

Hi. It’s Vashti from Nest Nappies, and I’m here today to show you how to use the Caboo by Close. The Caboo is a light, stretchy carrier that’s suitable for newborns up until around about 14 kilos, although we do find that once they hit about six months, they tend to get a little bit in your face, and they want to get out and look at some other things. So, the Caboo, the one I have with me today is the Caboo Plus Organic. It is two layers, two passes, and it has some rings on the side. The back of the carrier has a little bit of structure. It comes in two pieces because on top of the carrier itself, and you also have an extra pass that will go around the outside.

             Now, I have baby [Matisse 00:00:59] with me, and I’m going to show you how to pop this on first, and then I’m going to get baby Matisse’s dad to pass her over to me. Now, with the Caboo, what you want to do is that part there is going to sit around about where your bra does up or about the middle of your back. Moreover, all you’re going to do is pop it on exactly like you would a T-shirt, so arms through and then over your head, just like that. I then like to fan out the passes, so that they’re nice and flat against the body, and the rings do up, just on your hips there. You have the passes no more than about 10 centimetres out from your body, so that’s a little bit far out. I’m just going to pull on these little tiles here to tighten that up a little bit. As you can see, that then brings it in that little bit closer to my body.

            So, once we’re ready, I’m going to grab Matisse.

             Hi, Bubba. Hi. Hi.

            So, this is baby Matisse, and baby Matisse is nearly eight weeks old. She is used to being carried, so fingers crossed. She’s a little bit sleepy, so we’ll try and keep her nice and quiet.


            There we go. Now, what we’re going to do is the pass that’s closest to my body, which is this pass here, we’re going to pop Matisse up on the other shoulder. We’re just going to pull that pass out and fan it over her bottom so that the cast goes from knee to knee. She’s just going to slide down in there.

            And then we’re going to get this other pass and pass it up over the other leg. Moreover, once again, make an X across Bubbie’s back and make sure that she’s fully supported from knee to knee with the two passes.

            We can then pull on these little tiles here, which I think I’ve twisted one. Just pull them to make it a little bit tighter for her and give her a nice snug fit in there. As you can see, that is around about where my bra does up, so right in the centre of my back. Matisse is fully contained within the carrier, arms free.

            The third pass that I mentioned is this one here, and this is just going … this has got some elastic across the top of the carrier above the pass and along the bottom. We’re just going to put that bottom piece just underneath Matisse’s bottom and then pop it up.

            Whoops, we can get that.

            And then tie it up behind my back, just like that. There we go.

            Do you want to come out? There we go. Moreover, I’ve worked on Matisse now.

            So, that is the Caboo Organic, and that’s how you pop it on. So, nice and hands-free so that you can get around and do everything that you need to do during the day.

            Thanks for visiting us at Nest, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
