Joie Finiti: Using the stroller for my 4mo and she is quite small, she looks suffocated with the straps - what to do?

Joie Finiti Signature - I am using the stroller for my 4 month old and she is still quite small, she looks suffocated with the straps against her. Is there any way the straps can be adjusted?

Also, when I place my baby into the stroller, do the legs go into the straps too or is it just over the shoulder?

Hi, Haf,

There are possibilities to adjust the straps height-wise as well as length-wise, so you should make it so that the baby has the shoulder belts just above her shoulders. The higher ones should not go into those straps, no, but there is a crotch strap she should have between her legs.

Definitely consult the manual. It may be a smaller 4mo baby is too small for the seat - in that case, use a thinner footmuff, soft insert cot (universal one) or a cocoon to helo her feel more comfortable in the seat.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
