Woven Wrap How To


Illustrations woven wrap babywearing

Size 4 through 9 woven wraps are so versatile it can be hard to know where to begin learning. We recommend starting with Front Wrap Cross Carry. FWCC, as it's called, can be tied under baby's bum in shorter wraps or tied behind your back if you have enough fabric to wrap around. See our Sizing information and Base Size infographic for more. When practicing a new carry, do so near a bed or sofa or with a spotter.

To create a deep seat, pull the bottom rail (edge) of the fabric up between you and the child to their bellybutton, with fabric spread from knee to knee, keeping their knees higher than bum in an M shape. The top rail of the sling should be at an infant's neck or a toddler's armpits, so that your child is close enough to kiss and tightly supported with their spine in a C shape. Be mindful of your child's airway, keeping at least a finger's width between chin and chest. Baby's face should not be buried straight into your chest, but rather turned to the side. Do not cover your child's face with fabric.
