where can i buy this fabric? what kind of fabric
is it? thanks it was lovely :)

mayabee23, the fabric is a Didymos wrap, you can buy them from many babywearing sites… the one I used is a red indio weave size 6 – the most versatile size unless you are on the larger side when you’d need a size 7.

ciderbint – glad that you found it useful

I am going to try this today as it makes the most sense from the ones I’ve seen Do you think I could do it with a 5 m.o? Thanks

Absolutely! I began doing this carry when my little one was about that age, and if I have another I’ll probably do it in the first few months! It does take practice, and is always easier if you can get hold of someone who does it to demo it with you, and help you those first couple of times, but also give it a go over a bed at home so it is less scary! I found this carry so freeing, I LOVE IT!!!!! Hope you do too.

Just buy one ready made? surely it has to be easier? Now dont down thumb me, yep im a dad maybe im wrong lol i often am but surely its easier for me to go buy one ready made?

Yep, you can buy one ready made, there are plenty of them out there. But nothing beats the comfiness of these for me. You might like to look into soft structured carriers (SCS)s like mei tais and buckled types like ergo / patapum / connecta. loook them up. :)

I got a Didymos wrap a few weeks ago, it is absolutely fabulous! I also got a Moby wrap for back up, but Didymos is the best!!!!! Yes, they are expensive but worth every penny! I can’t wait til my baby is older so I can do a back carry. Love Didymos!

Beth Roche @ 4:16 am #

Thanks rinimiester, Enjoy your Didymos, and remember the tucking under the bum… Practising in front of a mirror and over a bed is cruicial at first. Good luck
