A wrap is a really long piece of fabric. It can feel over whelming when you have only seen other parents walking about with wrapped babies and you have no idea how to get your baby secured to your own chest with a piece of cloth.
Don’t be over whelmed. It is true, there are endless ways to tie a wrap. If you love wrapping and you want to go on to learn every wrap carry you can think of we are totally in support of that. However, it is really important to learn the basic skills first. The truth is you can enjoy your entire babywearing career by mastering only two front carries (we’ll talk back carries later).
Front Wrap Cross Carry is the place to start. By mastering this carry you will be learning really important skills like positioning your baby, tightening your wrap and learning to wrap while holding your baby (an important skill for learning back carries later).
“Front Wrap Cross Carry should feel rock solid. You should feel like your hands are completely free, like you are ready to put on your cape and save the world.”
