Helpful Hints

  • Newborn babies with colic, gas or acid reflux often prefer being carried in an upright position.
  • If baby doesn't like being in the wrap, gently take baby out and try again later.
  • A baby can sense a wearer's hesitance when using the wrap. Babies who "don't like being wrapped" actually enjoy it (and fall fast asleep) when carried by an experienced babywearer. Keep practicing!
  • Babies will cue you when they are ready to be out of this position by starting to stretch their legs. At this point, you may put baby's legs through the fabric as instructed in the Hug Hold
