Helpful Tips for Babywearing in the Explore Position
|Try your carrier when baby is fed, rested and in a good mood. If baby is fussing, calmly take him/her out and try again later.|
|Ensure that the fabric is spread wide between baby’s legs – reaching the bend in baby’s knees – to create a comfortable seat.|
|Baby can sense your mood. If you are stressed, baby will sense this & will also be stressed! Keep practicing and stay calm 🙂|
