Pocket Wrap Cross Carry (PWCC)
PWCC “REAL TIME WRAPING VIDEO *coming soon*
This carry was a favorite in the early days because it is quick and easy to tie. It doesn't require any babywearing experience, and allows you to get a feel for what it is like to wear your baby. (You can also nurse in this carry which was one plus side to this!) This was the first carry that I attempted with my twincesses, and I like it because it has a twin variation that you can use for when they are super itty bitties! You don't need to wait to use this carry! It is safe to use from birth and on*. (Be sure, if wearing a younger baby, to monitor your baby to ensure slump their necks/close their airways!) MOBYS/STRETCHIES ARE SUITABLE FOR THIS CARRY!! (Just be sure to secure all the passes/layers over your baby(ies)! You can pre-tie this carry before you leave the house too, making it easier to get your baby in and out, especially in the early, or bad weathered, days.
*if you have premature babies, please consult with your physician before wearing. Thing such as muscle tone, low birth weight, etc can play a factor in safety.
- When wrapping this carry, make sure you put the “X” lower (as you can see below, I made mine WAY too high!)
- You can use the shoulder passes to tuck their heads in so they have more neck support (and is PERFECT for snuggly naps!)*Enjoy some of our PWCC adventures! <3*(This the picture tutorial was my first attempt on the blog sharing babywearing info, so I left it ... We all started somewhere right!?!)
Nursing and hanging in our DIY stretchy wrap
Love that there is extra material so we can cover up if in public!
Make sure that baby's knees and butt make an "M" shape! knee to knee straight across...
Side view of the carry. Allowing for the natural "C" shape curve of the spine will support their hip development and spine (babies spines are not made their whole bodies for the majority of the first year. HERE is a great link with more details)
What it looks like under the "cummerbund"
Nom Nom Nom Nom....
