The beauty lies in its simplicity
And the one-size-fits-all wrap allows for a perfect fit every time
Ideal from newborn to 33lbs, there are many ways to position baby. But lets start with the most important one – the Pocket Wrap Cross Carry. You can use this from the moment baby is born, and its the safest way to wear them.
There are also other positions that you can learn later. Should you want to breastfeed or keep baby in a cradle position you can use the Cradle Carry, if your baby is a little older and wants to look out a little more then you can try the Hip Carry, and should you want to carry your twins in your wrap then try the Twin Carry!
Neck support for your newborn
If you’re especially worried about how to best support your newborns head, there are a couple of ways to do so.
- If your baby prefers to sleep with his head facing you rather than resting either cheek on your chest, then roll a muslin into a log shape and roll it into the top of the front panel, so that it supports the back of baby’s neck.
- Ensure that your baby’s breathing is not compromised. If baby has his head to the side, resting his cheek on your chest, then simply place the shoulder panel over the back of his head to support.
How your Baby Should Look In Your Wrap
For the first few days baby may feel more comfortable with his legs tucked into the wrap. You will know within days that baby is ready to keep his legs out! Click here for further information on Hip Health – Amawrap have been deemed a “Hip-Healthy Baby Carrier” by the IHDI.
You can keep baby in the wrap for as long as you need.
It is the most comfortable position for him, and remember that you will still be taking him out for nappy changes and feeding, which is ample time for him to get a good stretch in!
- Keep the sling taut- too loose and the baby will not be totally supported, too tight and baby will not get enough fresh air circulating across their face. You should be able to put two fingers between the babys chin and chest.
- Baby should be high enough for you to be able to kiss her head.
- Take care when walking as babys’ head may obstruct the view of the floor directly in front of your feet.
- Do not cook or iron with baby in sling.
