Ready to get wrapping like a pro?
Follow these quick and simple wrap wear tips to have you wearing your baby safely in no time!
The First Steps
- Pass the wrap fabric hand to hand - there will be no flips or twists in the fabric if you are holding from the same place.
- Keep the wrap high! Once you've crossed your passes, do not wrap low on your waist as this can 'drag' the wrap fabric down lower on your body and results in a lower carry height.
Tension is Key
Ensure your fabric has no sneaky slack. To do this, pull down from the top of the shoulders and feed the fabric through from behind to tighten the middle band.
You want your carry to be firm before you pop baby in. Test your tension by pulling the fabric away from your body once tied. Does it have the same snapback as a swimsuit? If so, head on to the next tip! If not, repeat the above tip until you have the right tension.
When placing your baby into the wrap, always pull the shoulder pockets from the outside with your thumb and don't stretch out from the inside of the pocket.
Lift the middle pass high up to the back of baby's neck and also make sure it is high under your arms to keep the placement and for extra support.
