    Default Front Wrap Cross Carry (FWCC) and variations

    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

    Default Front Cross Carry (FCC) and variations

    Videos:
    FCC, including careful wrapping and how to sandwich shoulder straps (useful for several different carries)
    FCC in real time, no words

    Picture Tutorials:
    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.
    Video: SCC



    With shoulder flipped (I get irritated with the wrap always being against my neck).

    Default Back Cross Carry (BCC)

    This is the back version of the FCC. This back carry is NOT good for those babies who like to lean!

    Video:
    BCC (sometimes knows as carry a la mei tai)


    Not a great picture, because I have a leaner as seen below!

    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.
