Step by step instructions
Hold the baby wrap in front of you. Use the label as a reference point for the centre. Pull the tails backwards.
Cross the baby wrap behind you on your back and pull the tails over your shoulders to the front.
Fold the wrap on the side where the baby will be, this creates some sort of hammock.
Cross the wrap over your abdomen and pull the tails of the wrap under the band. The tail where the baby will be should be at the bottom.
Pull the tails backwards.
Make a firm reef knot on the backside.
Drop the shoulder band (the top one, where the baby will not be) down.
Put the baby in fetal position against your chest with your hand underneath its bottom and the pulled up feet. Lower the baby into the opened shoulder band.
Spread the fabric of the shoulder band over the back and shoulders of the baby as high as possible. Keep supporting your baby.
Repeat this with the other shoulder band, that you are now wearing again.
Finally the band for the belly. By pulling up the shoulder bands and belly band as high as possible, the baby gets good support for the neck musscles.
The baby can sleep against your chest or look around when it is a bit bigger.
