Do you have minis that want to be carried A LOT? Or perhaps, like me, you had places to be that were full of stairs, gates and uneven surfaces… and more children than hands. Well look no further! This wrap is suited from beginners up and will have your bubbas snuggled close in no time.
Apart from the obvious practical benefits, baby wearing has always been a lovely way for me to keep my little ones close to my heart in a long cuddle. Plus, when the bubs are cranky or sick, they go straight into the wrap and are suddenly calmer, warmer and more likely to sleep.
A little bit of practice and you can do this in a couple of minutes, about the same amount of time it takes for me to unload our double pram and put the babies into it. If you’re not convinced, see if you can borrow a wrap from a friend to give it a try. It has been a fantastic tool for our family!
Here is our short how-to video. You can watch me explain how I came about this wrap or skip to the middle to get straight into the easy to follow tutorial.
The LBO Mini
– from newborn to 1+
– beginner friendly!
– roll up face washers and tuck into fold for head support
– great for tandem nursing once bubs have head control
– wrapping style keeps babies from ‘falling towards’ each other and moving out of place
– IMPORTANT: ensure you can always see bubs airways are clear and they are close enough to kiss
Wrap used: Size 7 YARO woven “La Vita Autumn rainbow” print
Would love to see your pics in the comments. Happy wrapping!
Love this! Will it work with a Moby Wrap?
Thanks Leigh! You can use this technique with a moby for small babies but it does stretch out of position, especially as Bub gets heavier. Not ideal if you are out and about with wriggly bubbas.
Where do you find this wrap?
I bought it in 2016 from an Australian retailer. You can check out the Yaro website to see where it is available.
How do I know what size
You’ve been wrapping bubs since newborn? How well did this support their little necks?
Hi PreparingFor2! I started wrapping at around 6-8 weeks. For head support use the LBO mini with little face washers/towels rolled up and tucked under the folds behind their necks. This will provide much better neck support. Hope that helps!
