How to wrap your baby using a woven wrap With this method, you will be wrapping the sling around you and your baby. You will get a much closer wrap, which is essential as unlike the stretchy sling, there will be less room for give. 1. Place the middle of the sling (located by the care label) against your chest. Holding the top edge of the sling, extend your arm, raise it over and behind your elbow and head, and bring it over the opposite shoulder. Do the same with the other side. 2. Put baby into the burping position, open the top of the sling out and lower baby in until he is straddling your stomach- much the way you would cuddle him. Other way to do this is to put your hand through the underside of the horizontal panel, find babys feet and feed them through the panel. Cover the baby up till either his armpits if he is awake and wants to explore, or his head if he is sleepy or if its cold outside. Make sure you tuck the sling under his bum up to the knees. KEEP BABY SUPPORTED. 3. Now that he is in, keeping one hand under the bum use the other hand to tighten the sling by pulling the end on the shoulder (upwards) until baby feels secure. Then, still holding the piece of sling taut, place the hand under the bum to support whilst you do the other side. You will know you have wrapped it tightly enough when you are able to pull both ends away from you without holding baby and he feels secure. If you feel nervous about letting go, it may mean that you need to tighten the wrap a little more. How to wrap your baby using a woven wrap 4.
