Links to videos:
With baby in arms
In German, but shows how to tighten the carry really well!
Real time video (not a slowly done demo)
Carry with two different variations
Carry with a headrest for newborns
With wrap folded/sandwiched
Pictures I've taken of this carry:
Front crosses spread, folded straps on shoulder to keep material from riding up my neck
Front crosses not spread
Toddler asleep with crosses spread, can easily use one of the spread crosses to support the head in younger babies

FCC, including careful wrapping and how to sandwich shoulder straps (useful for several different carries)
FCC in real time, no words
In German, but great pictures!
Similar to the FCC, is the Short Cross Carry (SCC). This is basically how to do a FCC with a shorter wrap.
With shoulder flipped (I get irritated with the wrap always being against my neck).

I used the FWCC loads for about a year, and still use it now to get Ivor asleep if he is grouching. It's a great carry. Another one I really loved when he was just a bit smaller was the kangaroo carry with a size 4. He went to sleep every night in a kangaroo for about 6 months. I will try and post a video tomorrow. I learnt to do it semi-pre tied, which I think made it much easier. It's a particularly lovely carry for a newborn I think

Tried to do a kangaroo this morning and Ivor must have enjoyed it again because within five minutes:
There's some sleepy magic about this carry I'm sure of it.

Absolutely beautiful picture!
I have yet to try a Kangaroo carry in my woven, though I did it a couple of times in my DIY gauze wrap last year.
(And reminder to myself to find more videos for the different carries....Care to help me Beccasweet? )
