Day 2: Crunchy Mama’s 30 Day Wrap Challenge – Semi FWCC

I started this challeimagenge to force myself to learn new carries, and Day 2 provided me the opportunity.  The Semi Front Wrap Cross Carry is a variation of Day 1’s front wrap cross carry.

This carry has a few advantages over FWCC: because it has one less pass over the baby, it is cooler.  You can also use a smaller wrap, and the slip knot makes it easy to adjust.  Some women are able to nurse in this carry, but I haven’t gotten the hang of it yet!

The only downside I have found so far is that learning to tie a slip knot can be tough.  I had to practice several times before getting it right.

After practicing thisimage one just twice, I was comfortable wearing the little one out for about an hour to explore.  We were rewarded by finding a gorgeous ancient church to explore.

I am using a Deep Blue and Gold Hemp Indio from Didymos in size 5 for this one (although I think I could easily have used a size 4).

Wrap Your Baby has a nice video on how to do this carry on Youtube.





Day 1: Crunchy Mama’s 30 Day Wrap Challenge – FWCC

May 1st kicked off the 30 day wrap challenge I hope to participate in.  I will be traveling some in May so I may not get every carry done on the right day, but I am going to use this challenge to kick me in the behind to learn a lot of new carries.   If you want to participate,image‘ you can join the Crunchy Mama’s 30 Day Wrap Challenge on Facebook.

Day 1 is the Front Wrap Cross Carry (FWCC).  This was the first carry I learned.  The little one was about six months old when I learned it and we still use it.  I like this one for days she wants to have an arm out as well as days that she wants to be snuggled close.

When I first learned this one, I had trouble getting the top of the wrap tight enough.  I kept practicing and it got much easier.  The passes across the back help distribute weight, and after I took this photo I ended up sandwiching the shoulders as it was getting a bit diggy. I wore this one for two hours and was comfortable.

I’m using a Lenny Lamb Bubo Owls in size 6 for this wrap.

Wrapping Rachel on Youtube has a great video on how to perform this carry.
