Babywearing basics – front wrap cross carry with a twist
4 weeks old! ( newborn )
Wrap: Yaro slings La Fleur Summer Rainbow size 6
Using a ringsling with a newborn baby
With a flip at the back.
Ringsling: Kokadi Erna in Wunderland WCRS
Legs out, head supported, high enough to kiss, airways free!
Reason why I like the flipped back:
– easier to pull the toprail up high without it digging in your armpit
– more symmetrical positioning of your baby, because of the direction of the bottom rail.
