I'm really excited to share this one with you. A lot of people ask at meetings what else can they do for a front carry besides a FWCC and I always show them this one. They quickly fall in love with the freedom their shoulders have and they can still nurse in it! This carry is safe with a newborn but make sure you practice a few times with a baby doll or stuffed animal first because you wanna make sure that the little pouch you make for them is super secure while you use your hands to adjust and tighten everything up. This carry may not be very practical for a large toddler as toddlers love to lean. Great for snuggles though if they love their arms in and don't mind the wrap up to their neck. This carry can also get low so make sure to be extra conscious of baby's face and neck.
I used a base size (I'm a size 8/10 dress size and use a size 6 as my base size) but could easily use a smaller size depending on the size of my baby. I had quite the tail when I used my short 6 in the video tutorial. While this is a great carry, it might not work with all wraps like ones that tend to sag a bit after some use.
Tightness is truly important with this carry so make sure you are familiar with tightening your wrap. As I've mentioned in previous posts on how to tighten, start with your top and bottom rails and always tighten in the middle.
FWCC. She pulled them outward for extra tightening and then she brought them in front of her. Gather both in your hand and then you'll be able to slowly release a hand while they are secure in the other.
A big thank you to Dana for rocking this carry for us!
