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 fi ngers 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.
Nursing In Your Wrap
Read the following steps one time through before attempting to nurse in your wrap.
A tutorial is also available on our website. It is recommended that the baby have head and
neck control prior to nursing in your wrap.
01Loosen your double knot and work some fabric slack from the shoulder sections through to the wrap, then re-tie your double knot.
02Take one hand and support the baby’s head and neck and with the other hand, guide it through the opening of the wrap closest to your underarm.
03Grab the baby as if you were to pick them up off of the floor and along with the support of your other hand shift the baby down and over to breast height. Shifting the baby will take some wiggling. Once the baby is at breast height and in a comfortable position you can grab the tag section and work it back up to the baby's neck.
- Do not cover the baby’s face and ensure their face is visible at all times. Baby should remain upright and well supported while nursing. Ensure that the baby is not in a cradle position or laying horizontally.
- If the baby falls asleep during or after nursing, you will need to reposition them upright back above your chest or take them out and retie the wrap.
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.
Read and follow all printed instructions 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.

When can I start using my wrap and up to what age can my baby be worn?
We recommend beginning from birth. Our wrap is perfect for babies 8-25 lb (0-15 months old). You will get the most use out of your wrap within the baby's first year.
Can I wear my baby facing forward or on my back?
No, we DO NOT recommend either. Forward facing can increase stimulation which can be a stressor for newborns and as they grow it can put too much pressure on baby’s spine and joints. It can also increase the risk of baby falling out of the wrap because the direction of gravity is forward without restraint and it may put pressure on the wearer’s back causing them to over-arch. We also advise against back carrying in this wrap.
We DO recommend carrying to the side with the wrap so they can see everything around them. Simply put them on as instructed in the Classic Hold and wiggle them to either side of your torso and chest. You can fan out the opposite shoulder section for your added comfort. A tutorial video is available on our website.
Can I wear twins in my Tuck and Bundle wrap?
We do not recommend wearing twins in our wrap. Parents of multiples love our wrap because one baby is able sleep securely in the wrap while allowing you to be hands-free to feed or play with the other. Purchasing a second wrap for your spouse is a great option.
How do I take care of my Tuck and Bundle wrap?
Our wrap is machine washable. Wash on delicate, cold, and tumble dry low. To prevent tangling with other garments, you may wash your wrap in a mesh bag. Do not use chemical spot treatments.
Where can I find video tutorials?
Our tutorials are located on our website, YouTube, and Instagram highlights. You can also schedule a one-on-one video call through FaceTime or Facebook messenger.
