How do you tie a wrap sling?
Many parents are apprehensive about buying wrap carriers because they look a bit intimidating, but with a little bit of practice, you can master this wrap pretty quickly. To begin, find the center of the wrap and place the center between your lower chest and midsection. Grabbing the two ends of the wrap, wrap the cloth around your back. When bringing the wrap forward, cross the ends and tighten them before bringing them around your shoulders. You know you’ve done it right when there is an X on your back.
Once you’ve formed your X, tuck your wrap into the front section that you formed in the center of your body. Before securing the ends behind you, cross them again to form another X in the front. Finish by tightening the ends and tying a knot in the back. After making sure your wrap is secure, grab your baby and place them into the X. You know they’re secure when their legs are on both sides and their back is covered by the wrap. The final step is pulling the midsection fold over your baby’s back and adjust as necessary for comfortability and weight distribution. When learning, be sure to place your baby over a soft surface to avoid dropping your newborn while getting used to securing your wrap.
After you master your wrapping technique, you will appreciate making an investment in a baby wrap. They’re convenient in tight public areas, give your baby a secure resting place, and allows you to get things done simultaneously. Congratulations on welcoming a new edition to your family and happy wrapping!
