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.



  1. Just found your blog from a babywearing Facebook group! I have a 5 week old and am just starting to try to figure out the FWCC. I’m definitely struggling with keeping the top tight enough…but it seems to get better every time I give it a try! I will be following your posts 😀

      Congrats on the wee one! I didn’t get started until my wee one was about five months old – I am sad I lost those early opportunities to wrap her! I still like the FWCC, but it did take several practices to get it nice and snug. Now I’m moving on to back wrapping and having the same problem in getting the top rail tight enough.

      Thanks for becoming a blog follower!
