FRONT CARRY FRONT TIE:

Practice age-appropriate baby wearing!  This position is intended for children with good trunk and neck control, which usually occurs around 6 months of age.   

Step 1:  Tie the shorter straps around your waist in a secure double knot with the pattern you want seen by other people to be against the front of your legs. The carrier should look like an apron hanging down on your legs, and it should hang to your knees (approx). 

Step 2:  Hold the baby so that he or she can wrap his or her legs around your waist.

Step 3:  While supporting the baby, pull the body of the carrier up and over his or her back.

Step 4:  Pull the straps straight up over your shoulders.  We recommend doing a little hop while you pull on the straps because it helps to ensure that the child is nestled into the carrier.

Step 5:  While supporting the baby with one hand, use the other to grab both of the top straps that are now over your shoulders and hanging down your back

Step 6:  Cross the straps across your back while making sure you are pulling them tight enough to support the baby.  You can also do another little hop and pull to make sure the slack is completely out of the straps and the body of carrier.

Step 7:  Bring the straps back around the front of your body and tie them with a secure double knot.  You can tie the straps behind baby's back or under his or her bottom.
