Toddler babywearing

When you want to keep your baby (or puppy in this case) close by, babywearing is the way to go. There are just a few rules to follow. 

1- If baby still doesn't have good neck control, either support baby's head with the wrap or with your hand.

 2- A good rule of thumb for where to place baby on your chest, is that baby should always be close enough to kiss.

3- When you're ready to take baby out, support him with one hand, move the wrap, and...

4- Lift baby out. Gently, of course.

Disclaimer: The way Quentin is "babywearing" his puppy is not a good example of a real wrapping job with a real baby. He's just using a makeshift scarf. If you want more "real" information on babywearing, babywearing Faith on youtube has some great videos! You can also connect with your local chapter of Babywearing International to get help from a babywearing educator.
