Video tutorial: Newborn Rucksack Carry

This is a great back carry for a newborn and great for hot weather. It is basically a kangaroo carry done on the back.

In the video i'm wrapping in the bedroom so that i can be near a bed. I'm new at wrapping so i'm not taking any chances (If you're learning back carries, make sure you have a spotter or wrap near the edge of a bed) Adam is watching a video. If you listen carefully you can hear him trying to mimic what i'm saying..hehe..i'm really trying not to laugh in this video.

Mia is not all calm this time so you can get some idea how to handle a crying/wriggling baby while wrapping. Of course if you're learning a new carry you should make sure your baby is fed and happy before you try to wrap for best results. But, in reality our babies do cry and that's when they need to be cuddled and wrapped the most. I find that when wrapping a crying/wriggling baby, the main thing to do is be calm and confident, and keep your focus on the wrapping. You can pause and calm your baby down by bouncing, rocking, walking. If all else fails what i do is just keep wrapping until i'm done and then walk/dance around until she calms down again...

I took my time doing this carry because i'm still learning but you can actually do this carry pretty quick especially if you do the simple rucksack where you just cross the tails under her bum instead of spreading it out like i did in the video. But she's tiny so i feel more secure with a reinforced rucksack. if you have a shorter wrap, you can also tie under her bum. Happy wrapping!
