How to Put on Your Baby Wrap Carrier

Carrying your baby in a Wrap Carrier can be a great way to bond with your little one and keep them close while you go about your day. However, if you've never used a Baby Wrap Carrier before, it can be a bit daunting to figure out how to put it on properly. In this blog post, we'll walk you through the steps to put on a Baby Wrap Carrier safely and comfortably. 

Find the Centre Tag of the Wrap Carrier

Step 1: Find the Center of the Wrap

Start by finding the VIXSA center of the Wrap, this is the brown triangle VIXSA logo.

Position the wrap carrier on your body

Step 2: Position the Wrap on Your Body

Position the center point of the Wrap on your chest, just under your breasts. The rest of the wrap should hang down beside you.

Cross the wrap carrier on your back

Step 3: Cross the Wrap Behind Your Back

Take the two ends of the Wrap that are hanging down beside you and cross them behind your back. Bring the ends back to the front of your body.

Tuck the shoulder pieces under the VIXSA tag panel

Step 4: Tuck the Wrap under VIXSA Tag

Take both ends in one hand and tuck them under the section with the VIXSA logo while keeping the tension.

**TIP** Pull down nice and firm, making the Wrap nice and firm fitting, this is how we keep baby sitting nice and high and firmly in the Wrap, it will also be the baby's seat/pouch where their bottom will go.

Wrap and double knot the wrap carrier

Step 5: Wrap & Knot

Take the two pieces, keeping the tension, and wrap them around your waist where you can tie a them in a double knot on your back, or if you have extra fabric you can bring to the front and tie and double knot there.

Step 6: Position Your Baby

Take the first layer closest to your chest, pull open and carefully slide baby's legs under the shoulder piece. Spread the bottom of the fabric under baby's bottom from knee to knee. Repeat with second shoulder piece.

Secure baby in the wrap carrier

Step 7: Secure Baby Into Wrap Carrier

Pull the piece with the VIXSA logo up and over your baby's bottom to the back of baby's back. This creates a secure space for your baby to rest in. Make sure your baby's face is visible and not covered by the Wrap.

Step 8: Adjust the Wrap & Do TICKS Check

Now that your baby is in the carrier, you can adjust the wrap to make sure they are snug and secure. Make sure the fabric is spread evenly across your baby's back and bottom, and that their legs are supported in the "M" position (with their knees higher than their bottom). Perform the TICKS checklist:

T- Tight
I- In View
C- Close Enough to Kiss
K- Keep Chin off Chest
S- Supported Back
