step-by-step guide to
wearing your momme wrap
unfold your wrap
Identify where the Momme tag is on your wrap. That will be your center point. Wrap around the bottom of your sternum.
Wrap over your shoulders
Pull each side of your wrap over the opposite shoulder, creating a secure X on your back. Make sure straps stay as flat and untwisted as possible while doing so.
Pull through the front
Pull the 2 wrap pieces underneath the fabric sitting on your waist. This is the part that determines how tightly the wrap will be holding your baby—make sure you pull down firmly to snuggly secure your wrap on your shoulders. You may need to take some time to readjust to find the right spot.
Create a front X & wrap around
Once you've passed your fabric through & have secured the tightness of your wrap, cross your straps again to make an X on the front - this will determine how high or low your baby will sit. Keeping your fabric nice and tight, wrap once or twice around your waist.
Tie a tight knot
Once you find a comfortable end spot, tie a tight knot. A longer tail may create less slack or sagging.
Rearrange for comfort
Make sure your wrap is sitting comfortable and is tight/loose enough in all the right places. Detangle the waist piece and prepare for baby—this will be what goes over the top of your baby's back for a final support piece.
Time for baby
Bring baby in facing you, leaning towards the opposite shoulder of the first leg you will be placing in the wrap. Bring one leg through the opposite strap, then do the same with the other side. Always hold securely onto baby's back. Start to spread the wrap over baby's body to create a comfortable seat. Baby's bum should be in the middle of the straps to create a "kangaroo pouch."
Cover baby with final piece
Finally, bring the waist piece with the tag over your baby all the way to the bottom of the neck to secure into your body. This final piece can keep your baby's legs inside or outside, depending on their comfort. Ensure no fabric is covering baby's air passages.
