Artipoppe Baby Wrap
Artipoppe’s Baby Wraps are newborn ready and can be used for a front, back, or hip carry. This guide outlines step-by-step image instructions on how to use the Baby Wrap on your front.
Fold the upper half of the fabric in front of your waist.
Bring the wrap around to your back.
Make sure you hold only the upper part of the fabric.
Cross your hands.
Cross both ends (i.e. tails) on your back, without twisting the fabric.
Lift both ends over your shoulders.
The wrap is crossed on your back without any twists.
The tails are hanging straight over your shoulders.
Create a pouch.
The pouch should be tight, but big enough to put your baby into.
Pick up your baby.
Rest your baby over your shoulder and put one hand, from bottom to top, through the pouch.
Take your baby’s feet and guide them through the pouch, letting your baby sit on the pouch with spread legs.
Pull the upper rail of the pouch while holding your baby with one hand.
Pull it over your baby’s back up to its ears. Make sure you hold one hand under the baby’s bum.
Make sure to keep holding your baby.
Take the bottom rail and pull it up between you and your baby, creating a seat.
Hold one tail tight and secure it while still holding your baby.
Take the inner rail from the other tail.
Tighten the inner rail by pulling in the direction as shown.
Hold the tightened rail with the fixed hand to make sure you don’t lose tension.
Tighten the middle part of the tail.
Tighten the outer rail. Repeat all steps with the second tail.
Your baby should be wrapped to your body firmly.
Your baby is wrapped firm enough if you feel secure to lift both tails over your shoulder.
Bring both tails down.
Cross tails under baby’s bum.
The cross will function as a security seat.
Pull the crossed tails under your baby’s legs around to your back.
Tie with a reef-knot.
Make sure your baby’s knees are higher than its bum.
Your baby is in the right position if you can comfortably kiss its head.
You and your baby are ready to go.
