3 months old

30th March, 2010 / Baby Wrap Tips / 3 Comments

Belle is three months now, and fourteen lbs!  I find that I am not wrapping her legs in anymore.  They are so long and strong that they no longer seem to be part of the bundle I used to wrap.  Instead of a newborn ball, Belle is unfolding into a more humanoid shape!


Front Cross Carry

Front Cross Carry with Mary EllaRoo

Current favorite carries are:

  • still the Front Cross Carry (FCC) most often and anytime we go out because she is still nursing a lot and it is still the easiest to adjust into nursing position, and simplest for popping in and out of as we drive from errand to errand.
  • still Double Hammock Carry (DHC) for a back carry because it is just so easy, solid, and comfy, and I can do it with the same size wrap that I want with me for the FCC
  • DHC’s shorter cousin the Reinforced Rear Rebozo Rucksack (RRRR) because it’s even faster and simpler than DHC with the same sturdiness and a great high back carry for hot weather since it can be done with 3 meters

And I think maybe I’ll play with some hip carries today and keep you posted!

    I was wondering if you had any tips for a ‘stiff’ baby. My almost 3 month old (16 lbs.) doesn’t want to bend his legs up at all when I put him on my back. He’s getting so big that it’s hard to work around him in the front, and my daughter was always easy to wrap. As soon as I get him on my back he sticks his legs out straight and I just can’t seem to get the wrap to stay under his butt.
    He’s far too big to get his legs tucked in anymore. Got any hints? It seems that he would enjoy riding on my back, but he just isn’t cooperative getting him on that way.

    Thanks so much, and thanks for posting all this on the web! I loaned my baby wrapping DVD to someone and I never got it back…Grr.

    Hi, short question: my son is 4 month next week and he still likes his legs tucked under. Is that a problem for a 4 month?!?

      I would think that legs in is fine, as long as you and he are both comfortable. Is he straddling you with his knees higher than his bottom (under the wrap)? Babies come in such varied shapes and sizes and such different physiological milestones that sticking to “the rule” without taking your individual baby into account is silly, don’t you think?
