Learn To Babywear In 2-Minutes!
Grab a stuffed animal and practice in front of your mirror. Wearing your baby promotes skin-to-skin contact and can soothe a fussy baby all while helping you to be hands-free… so we would say learning this is worth it.
Simple Instructions For Tucking Your Bundle
This wrap is so easy to put on. It took me a few minutes to learn did it in front of the mirror, I thought I needed help, but I did it all by myself. There are great videos on YouTube and you can even learn to nurse in the wrap. — C.T.
Taking Baby Out
- When you are ready to take baby out of the wrap or transfer them to their crib remember that they may be sleepy. You will need to continue to support baby’s neck and hips when removing them from the wrap.
- With the support of a hand, untuck baby’s head from the shoulder section. Reach both hands into the top-most opening of the wrap as shown and guide your fingers to baby’s underarm as if you were picking them up off of the floor. After placing your hands at their underarm, fan your fingers at the back of their neck to support their head.
- Do a quick look above you to make sure that there are no light fixtures, ceiling fans, or other obstructions. Slowly lift the baby vertically from wrap until you see their toes leave the fabric. To store your wrap simply gather the material and place in the pocket located at the end of the wrap.
Safety first, snuggles second.
Read and follow all instructions included in your Tuck and Bundle wrap (also above) and view instructional videos before use. Proper supervision and positioning are crucial to the well-being of your baby so please exercise caution when using this product.
Use this checklist to help you keep baby fitting tight, in view, close, keeping chin off chest, and well supported.
In View At All Times
You should always be able to see your baby’s face by simply glancing down.
Close Enough to Kiss
Your baby’s head should be as close to your chin as comfortable.
Keep Chin Off Chest
A baby should never be curled so their chin is forced onto their chest as this can restrict their breathing.
Your wrap should be tight enough to hug your baby close to you as this will be most comfortable for you both. Any slack/loose fabric will allow your baby to slump down in the carrier which can hinder their breathing and pull on your back.
In an upright carry a baby should be held comfortably close to the wearer so their back is supported in its natural position and their tummy and chest are against you.
