I am not going to post pictures, I will just admit right away that I adore all things babywearing, I just stink at tying Lucy in a back carry with my gauze wrap.
I know, woven wraps have the highest learning curve. I adore my Sleepy Wrap and still carry her in a front carry with it. I bought a lovely blue gauze wrap from Baby Ette and have been dying to get the hang of it. It doesn’t help matters any that Lucy is super wiggly, so learning with her happens over the bed.
But I am determined to get this.
So far Lucy loves her Rockin Baby ring sling, Sleepy Wrap and Ergo. She fights me every time I try to put her in my Mei Tai. I think it is because it is the least soft of all my carriers. That is the only thing I can think of. Either that or I am tying it too tight.
I was tweeting about babywearing last night with a really friendly mama that has a passion for babywearing – and owns a shop that sells carriers too! She owns a Canadian baby carrier shop called Natural Urban Mamas. You can find all sorts of carriers there – Baby Ette wraps and ring slings and Guru mama Mei Tais and many more.
She shared a video with me made by a WAHM named Erin, to help me learn how to tie my wrap. All the wraps, slings and mei tais she sells are hand sewn by Erin and 2 other moms that live near her sew and create wraps, slings and mei tais. I love mompreneurs!
She sent me a video of how to wrap Lucy in the gauze wrap in a back carry. This is what I will be watching and practicing all day. Wish me luck!
