  1. Top Tip Tuesday - Pelvic Tilt

    Top Tip Tuesday

     

     

    Last week we discussed the importance of a pelvic tilt, many people asked how to do it.

    So this video shows you how to ensure this in a front and back carry.

    Front carry - put your hands between baby and sling, scoop round the hips forwards. This brings the hips towards you. Ensuring knees are higher and bum is lower. This in turn ensures the natural curve of babies spine.

    For a back carry - reach behind, tilt pelvis up towards you, bringing knees higher. You can see I lift the bum to ensure the waistband is flat and horizontal. If baby is sat into the waistband this can effect position.

  5. How To Use A Ring Sling - Video

    How To Use A Ring Sling - Video

     

    Woven Wednesday's aren't always just about wraps -we're also big fans of ring slings too!

     

    We have been asked for a tutorial for them so here we go! Ring slings are great for newborns and toddlers alike, so we're showing the same technique for an older baby and a smaller baby too.

     

    An older baby will sit more on your hip for a full hip carry, whereas a smaller baby will sit more 'off centre' on your front.

    The key is to take your time - the more time you take to prepare the sling first, means the less to do once baby is in.

     

    Hope this helps!

    Top Tip Tuesday Video - TICKS

     

    Let's look at how TICKS apply to carrying.

     

    T - TIGHT, a loose carrier or sling can cause baby to slump. Always ensure everything is adjusted tight and secure.

     

    I - IN VIEW, ensure that no fabric or clothing covers babies face. If using a hood, only cover one side.

     

    C - CLOSE ENOUGH TO KISS, try to get baby as a comfortable height above breast tissue.

     

    K - KEEP CHIN OFF CHEST, Older babies and children are able to do this, but newborns and small babies need help. You can lift babies chin with two fingers and position higher to open airways.

     

    S - SUPPORTED BACK, A sling or carrier must always support babies natural position, either a nice C curve or a J position for older babies depending on age and development.

     

    If you have any questions about safe babywearing feel free to get in touch. We have trained consultants available to discuss any

    This week we are looking at the front wrap cross carry. This is the carry most people learn first, a nice simple carry and great to practice tightening.

    In the video we show two ways to tighten so you can see what works best for you. We have also added shoulder flips. This helps keep the fabric away from babies face and allowed them a better view if they are getting to that 'nosey' stage.
