Wrapping Challenge Week 6 – Double Hammock

WEEK 6

Double Hammock

Tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMLpRjMHpoY

This is a wonderful carry with multiple passes over baby plus a chest pass, which makes it especially great for bigger/heavier babies and toddlers. Make sure you get the chest pass tight for the most comfort! This carry generally uses your base size.

Wrapping Challenge Week 3 – Robins Hip Carry

WEEK 3

Robins Hip Carry

Tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-rmMub7fEE

This carry generally uses your base or base-1 or -2. You can always use a slightly longer wrap and have a longer tail or wrap around the waist an extra time – or a slightly shorter wrap will tie under bum instead!

*Safety note: If you are doing this carry with a newborn or younger baby, you’ll want to put baby on your front as opposed to your hip.

Front Cross Carry (FCC)

Tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJtmL1DAUF8

This carry generally uses your base size. For information on finding your base size, see the Base Size Guide at http://www.wearingwiki.com/mw/index.php…

FCC is a great “poppable” carry. You can easily pre-tie it and pop baby in and out (which also means it’s great on the go, tie it before you leave the house and no dragging tails on the ground in parking lots!)

Share your photos on social media, and be sure to tag @bwiofoahu and use our hashtags #bwiofoahu and #bwiocotw when trying out Front Cross Carry (FCC))!

52 Week Wrapping Challenge

We are so excited to begin a year long wrapping challenge! The challenge will begin on March 4, 2018. Each week we will feature a carry of the week that we would love for you to learn along with us. We will provide links to instructional videos, and as always, we offer free instruction at our meetings and events.

Weekly Wrapping Challenge

To participate in the weekly challenge, you’ll need a woven wrap. If you don’t have one of your own, you can come try one for FREE at one of our meetings, where you will also receive hands on instruction from a babywearing educator. You can also borrow a carrier from our lending library by becoming a member. Learn more about how and why to become a member here.

Follow our blog, or join our Facebook Group for babywearers in Hawaii to follow along with this challenge.
