How to Wear a Baby Wrap Carrier

Relaxed Baby Wraps or Sling Wraps are versatile comfortable carriers that can be used right from the time baby is born to when they are around 2 years of age. It can hold a weight of about 16 kgs. In the initial months baby should be carried in front as baby's body is not ready for the back carrying position. As baby's body grows, you may carry on the back (recommended after 8-9 months of age).

We have compiled a series of various ways to carry a baby in a baby wrap in the form of pictures and videos to demonstrate the art of baby-wearing.

To start with here are a few illustrations of the front cross wrap position.
