Wrap Challenge - Week 1

FWCC - Front Wrap Cross Carry

or for more of a challenge you can go for a FWCC TAS (tied at shoulder)

Most people will need a size 6 wrap for a FWCC but that may depend on size of individual, wrapee, and wrap. I am a size 16 and can do a FWCC with my 1 year old with a 6, the trick is to make sure you tighten and remove as much slack as possible. I do like this carry, it has a nostalgia for me as it was the first one I learned, although it does get a bit harder the bigger your baby is. In the photo above Zoe is around 8 months and we were using our Girasol Light Rainbow in a 6. My challenge for this week is to try the TAS (tied at shoulder) version, as I haven't done it before. I will update it here when I do, or follow me on instagram for more babywearing photos.

The hashtag I'll be using on instagram and twitter is #30weekwrapchallenge

Well, I tried TAS and have to say I am not a fan. I found it really tricky to keep the single pass over the back tight with a leaning toddler while tying the knot. I didn't see the benefit of this version, unless you had a short wrap, although there are other front carries I prefer for a shortie.
