Babywearing instruction

Pure Baby Love wants to help you with this instruction to use your woven wrap well. This way of wearing your infant is called FWCC (Front Wrap Cross Carry); the base way to carry your infant on your front from the first day after birth. This is possible with a size 6 or 7.

There are many other nodes which are possible with our beautiful baby wraps. Your infant can be tied on your front, back and hip. Some nodes are however only suitable from the moment your child is a little bit older in connection with safety. Some of these knots are possible with a size 4. Many of these instructions can be found on the Internet.

The nodes initially seems quite complicated, but practice will help and you will find out that it gets easier. Sometimes it can be that a infant will struggle during the tying, but do not give up. If the wrap is tied well at the end, almost all children love it!

Step 1

In the middle of your Pure Baby Love wrap you will find a label. This is to mark the centre of the wrap. Hold this part against your chest. The rest of the fabric goes under your arms to your back.

Step 2

Cross the Pure Baby Love wrap on your back. The fabric under your right arm, needs to be pulled over your left shoulder to the front and vice versa. Try to cross the wrap neatly so you can tighten the wrap correctly in the coming steps. You can prevent the wrap becoming twisted by holding the upper edge, or top rail of the wrap fabric.

Step 3

The loose ends are now hanging over your shoulders in front of you. Hold your baby on your shoulder in the burp position. Guide babies legs into the horizontal part of the wrap. Babies head needs to be under your chin, or close enough so you can kiss the top of his/her head. Pull the wrap up over your childs back until it reaches the bottom of babies neck. Fold the excess of the horizontal wrap under babies bum, between you and baby to create a seat. Ensure the wrap spreads from babies bum to the nape of his/her neck and from knee pit to knee pit. Your child will sit in a natural 'M' or frog postion with knees higher then his/her bum. Please note: There is no need to force babies legs, especially with a small baby, as this is a natural position.

Step 4

Now it is time to tighten the wrap around you and baby. For the up most safety and comfort, we recommend you tighten step by step. 

Firstly, on either shoulder pass, hold the top rail of the fabric (one closest to you) and pull to tighten the top rail of the fabric near your baby. Keeping this tension, gather more of the wrap into your hand and pull to tighten. Do this all the way along the shoulder pass, keeping hold of the tension, until you feel the fabric tighten around your baby. Then repeat these steps with the opposite shoulder pass. 

Keeping the tension on both shoulder passes, bring them down to babies bum so that they sit in babies knee pits, cross the passes under babies bum and bring them under babies legs towards your back. Tie a secure double knot on your back. If you have fabric left you can also then bring it to the front again and knot here too.

Step 5

The wrap is knotted correctly when your child sits firmly against your body and it feels comfortable for you to wear.

See if you can give a kiss on the head of your child; if so the wrap is tied at the correct height. For extra comfort and head support you can make a roll at the top of the wrap by tucking a muslin into the fabric of the top rail, behind babies neck. This provides some head support for very little children.

Wearing your baby must be safe and comfortable for you both.

Safety instructions

Wearing your baby is very enjoyable, but it is very important that it is be done safely. The considerations mentioned below will contribute to the safe use of a sling.

 
Wearing your baby is best suitable when it is carried upright.  Please follow the instruction how to wear .
 
Wear the cloth tightened. Too much space means that you still have to support your baby by hand. In this case re-knot your child again in a tightened cloth and wear it on ‘kisses height’.
 
Never cover your child completely in the wrap and always keep the face free, so you can have a good view on your baby and there will be enough fresh air available. Make sure there is two fingers of space between the chin and chest of your baby to breathe properly.
 
Do not breast feed in a knotted wrap,this because of choking hazard. Breastfeeding is possible discreetly with the cloth wrapped loose (not knotted) around you and your baby. Make sure there will be enough fresh air available.
 
Never go to sleep with your baby wrapped in the cloth. You can not keep an eye on your child and there is a high risk your baby can not breathe properly. When your baby has fell asleep, always put your baby in his or her bed and remove the wrap.
 
Ensure a proper, comfortable position (frog posture, legs in M- position) of the baby. A proper knotted wrap is comfortable for you and your baby. If not, then re tie the knot again.
Do not carry your baby with his or her face forward. A good position of the hips is not guaranteed and your child is exposed to (too) many stimuli. It is better to wear your baby with it's face towards you because this feels more safe and familiar.
 
Always tie your wrap with a double knot and do not remove this knot when the baby is still in the wrap. It is very important to support your baby when the wrap is untied.
 
Do not dress your baby too warm, this becaue of the risk of overheating. Your baby does not have to be dressed warmer than you yourself. For example; When you wear your baby outside under your jacket, the baby does not need a jacket, a scarf and/or hat are recommended.
When you wear your baby outside your coat when it is cold, be aware to possible hypothermia. Warm clothing is than of course necessary. Especially hands and feet are particularly vulnerable to cold temperatures. During summer; do not forget to put on sun protection.
 
Your movements and/or the movements of your baby affect your balance. Bear this in mind while wearing. Be extra careful when it is slippery outside.
 
Take special care while bending / leaning forward, your child is tied firmly but bending / leaning forward might risk your infant to fall.
 
Never use the wrap while practicing sports (swimming, running, skiing, horseback riding, biking, rollerblading, skating etc.).
 
Never wear your baby driving a car, use at all times a safe and approved car seat. When using public transport; do not walk when the vehicle is moving,  wait until the vehicle has stopped completely.
 
Wearing your baby on the bike is not recommended by us.
 
Wearing your child is not recommended while cooking, ironing or doing other heat sensitive activities. This due to the risk of burning.
If the wrap is sufficiently damaged and safety can not guaranteed anymore, we strongly recommend no longer use of the wrap.
 
If you are unsure about a proper and safe way of tieing: Please contact a wear consultant. During this consultation you will learn to make various knots in a safe and proper way.
