Welcome to the world of wrapping! Whether your baby is a newborn, older baby or a big kid, we recommend that you begin your wrapping journey with the Front Wrap Cross Carry. Why do we recommend this? The FWCC is a popular choice for learning how to wrap as it has one of the easiest learning curves and teaches all the essential skills you will need to carry your baby or older child. This carry is executed in your standard long woven wrap size which is also known as your “base” size. If you do not know what your standard long wrap size is? Check out our article here that will explain all about sizing! Always keep in mind safety guidelines when trying the FWCC and other carries. If you are not familiar with the safety guidelines, read more here!

What other carries can I do once I learn the FWCC?
Once you are comfortable with the Front Wrap Cross Carry, there are many other carries you can explore if you wish to do so. Most people become very comfortable using their Standard size long wrap which allows them to carry their babies in most Standard long wrap carries. However, there are some people that like to explore different tying variations that stray from the Standard long wrap carries. Some of these carrying positions are more easily tied with shorter wraps while others might work better with a mid-length wrap or a full-length wrap that is longer than their Standard long wrap. These carries are usually considered to be of an advanced skillset and are not recommended until the wearer feels comfortable carrying in the Standard long wrap carries. They can be fun to do but definitely not necessary! It is a personal preference and totally up to you!
