Frequently Asked Questions
Listed below are some of the most frequently asked questions we get here at Zarpar Bebe.
What makes Zarpar Carriers different to other carriers on the market?
Our carriers are made using 100% Linen - a fabric that feels cool to the touch. It is one of the natural worlds most absorbent materials and can take on alot of moisture before actually feeling damp. It also has the natural ability to prevent bacterial growth.
Non bulky padding and foam has been used through the waist and shoulder straps ensuring there is no extra layers than absolutely necessary.
And natural bamboo padding used in the Wrap carrier which helps further to regulate temperature.Zarpar carriers are designed not only with your style in mind, but also the safety of a secure and comfortable carry for your little one.
What is the difference between the Snap & the Wrap Carriers?
When both Carriers are worn they feel very similar to each other, they both have a beautiful snug fit.
The Snap Carrier is perfect for those with busy lifestyles or those who just love simplicity.
Suitable to use from 3-4 months, it is very simple to put on and takes only a second, making running errands, school runs or just a walk on the beach a breeze.
By making an easy adjustment to the straps, you can discreetly breastfeed wherever you are.
There is some learning in tying the straps, but with a little practice, it is very quick and easy. There are a few more carry positions available with the wrap carrier, including front forward facing and it is suitable to use straight from birth.
A traditional Asian style carrier dating back centuries, it really is a beautiful way to carry your baby.
Our Carriers are surprisingly comfortable. Other carriers can hold most of the weight through the shoulder straps, forcing you to hunch your shoulders, which can make it very uncomfortable very quickly. Many people give up baby wearing early on for this reason.
The Zarpar Carrier shoulder straps cross over your shoulders making an "X" on your back. This allows the weight to be distributed evenly across your torso. It also promotes excellent posture by pulling your body into a naturally straight stance.
Both carriers fold up to fit perfectly into your Nappy bag or stow under your pram without taking up too much valuable space!
Am I able to breastfeed whilst baby is in the carrier?
If you feel you need additional coverage, just pull the hood shade up and secure on one side and ensure baby is still visible to you.
Once baby has finished feeding, raise baby back up and readjust the straps.
Tips: If you can, wear a low cut top so that access to your breast is easy. Be patient, breastfeeding while babywearing can take some learning. It is a good idea to practise a few times at home while baby isn't hungry so you don't feel stressed and rushed while out and about.
Safety note: YOU are responsible for your baby's safety in a carrier. Make sure you keep a supporting hand on your baby as you adjust the straps, and be sure everything feels secure before letting go. When in doubt, it's better to breastfeed safely than hands-free! Be sure your baby's airway is clear when nursing; babies need to breathe through their noses, so don't cover their faces.

How do I wash my Zarpar Bebe Carrier?
For food, vomit or daily kinds of mess you can use a baby wipe or wet cloth to gently spot clean the soiled area.
We recommend cold hand washing with a mild, natural detergent or a very gentle, cold machine wash with your Carrier placed in a cotton pillow case or laundry bag. This protects the handwoven front decorative panel, ensures the buckles do not get damaged and prevents the straps getting too twisted in the spin cycle. Fasten all buckles before washing.
DO NOT tumble dry. Line dry in shade. Avoid buckles and strapping when ironing.
With the proper love and care your Zarpar Carrier will give you many years of baby wearing bliss.
