Newborn back carry

I have been trying to do back carries with Mia, but this is my only successful attempt so far (after many unsuccessful attempts). This carry is called a Rucksack Carry. With newborn it's harder because you need to have the head supported and their body is so small it's hard to reach back there. Mia doesn't like it when i'm wrapping the fabric around..she will cry or wiggle..but once i'm done wrapping she will fall asleep, everytime! i swear this wrap has magic sleepy dusts!

View from the front. I did what is called a Tibetan Tie on the front. I think new breastfeeding mommies with enhanced chest area will definitely appreciate this because the tails sort of cover your front..(pls excuse the weird tudung ikat and pyjamas, had to just grab tudung on and take pics because who knows when i'll be able to do another back carry successfully!)

here's the money shot - lovely sleeping baby, safe and sound on Mommy's back!

aida, cane nk tau how to ikat2? ke mengikut creativity ? I remember my aunts (very long time ago) semua pun pakai this kind of kain/carry2
and ouh yes, sebelum aku baca 'Tibetan tie' tu, mmg aku terfikir something/name from there pun, hehe..Because you look like chinese+indian (tibet la) woman by wearing it. Nama dia sgt sesuai!
Last but not least..bile nk ajar step by step?

ade byk cara nak wrap, you can look up the instructions online. check out this website for example- can use your creativity too, wrapping is very flexible. nnt aku dah confident sikit aku buat video tutorial ok?

Baru dapat tgk wrap ni upclose.
Sangat cantik!!! Mommy and Baby pun cantik. :D

I pakai Rucksack Carry everytime nak masak je. Sebab bile carry lama2 kain tuh jadi gerak2. Sebab stretchy and material beli sendiri. So bila Maryam gerak-gerak, kain kat belakang pun shift ikut Maryam.

takut je tiba2 terikat tak kuat,bole jatuh ke baby?

aidafiqs adamia said...

sedap kan tgk dia tido...hehe

hehe i didn't put together the colours intentionally but tibe2 pyjamas tu pulak matching dgn wrap yer? hehe..they are my favourite colours though...(look at the colours of my blog)

i used to back carry Adam a lot so i have some idea how to do it. it's just harder because she's so small..

tulah aku soh taufik check byk kali jugak positioning dia ok tak...

yeke..tak ramai org ckp dia muka taufik...hehe

wah you buat wrap sendiri ke? yes i pun tgh nak blaja back carry so that i boleh masak, buat housework and hug/hold adam (sbb front dah free) while wearing mia..

if you know the right techniques it shouldn't happen. the fabric is so grippy that even if you tie a single knot (instead of a double knot) ikatan dia takkan terlerai by itself. also, the fabric is wrapped around your body such that you can feel your baby's every move. so if the baby or the fabric shifts at any point, you'll feel it and can tighten up if you need to.
