Moving on to a more supportive option than a stretchy wrap you have started using? Is your baby getting bigger and you are looking for something more comfortable but still close and snuggly? Do you love the gorgeous Woven Wrap fabrics but just don't know where to start? Here's a great starting technique called the Front Wrap Cross Carry (or FWCC).

We recommend to watch first, then practise using a soft toy or doll in front of a mirror. Then once you practise enough times that you feel confident, begin wrapping with your baby or toddler over a bed for extra security while getting used to the process. It can take a little while to get used to tying securely and tightening strand by strand, but once you have it, it is truly worth the effort as you end up with a very supportive, fully adjusted carry to both the baby and the wearer where you are both comfortable for longer periods of wearing if you wish, compared to less supportive fabrics and carrier styles.

There is also a plethora of options and variations in wrapping techniques to try once you become more experienced. Always remember to follow safety tips for ensuring a secure and safely wrapped baby. See below video for tips:

SAFETY WHEN BABYWEARING:

Remember: Always ensure you check baby often.
Ensure you check they are S A F E :
S ecure - securely attached to the caregiver's torso and not experiencing excess bouncing or jostling with movement

A irways - Baby's head is in neutral position, mouth and nose are unobstructed and chin is completely clear of chest.

F irm - Baby is held firmly in a correctly adjusted carrier. Carrier should fit to hold the baby firm against the caregiver's torso with no gaps between them or carrier and baby.

E yeline - You can see your baby easily and you have it in view. Check now, check often!

Every safe carrier is a great carrier. A carrier is safe as long as the baby is secure and the airways are free. Carriers that support baby in optimal position are best.
