At Mothering Apparel, our goal is to serve you. So we have prepared a handy and thorough guide with instructions on how to tie a Sleepy Wrap.
BASIC TIE Unfold the baby wrap and find the Sleepy Wrap logo at the center. Place the logo around your waist and wrap around your back. Cross the two pieces behind your back and bring each side up and over your shoulders to the front. The material flat should not twist. Tuck both pieces underneath the section with the logo. Pull them both down. The part with the label will rise up to your chest and should be adjusted so that it fits you snug and literally clings to your body. You are almost there. Cross the pieces and bring the fabric around your waist behind your back. Make sure that the pieces cross each other high on your chest area (your sternum is a good reference point). There is no need to leave extra space for your baby. Cross the wrap and if there is enough fabric bring it back to the front. If not, you can tie a knot here. You may tie a double knot here, or if there is enough fabric tie the double knot on your back.
CLASSIC, LOVE YOUR BABY HOLD Hold your baby securely and carefully place one leg through the shoulder piece of the Sleepy Wrap™ that is closest to your body. Spread the fabric wide over your baby’s entire bottom, back and shoulder. The wider you spread it the more comfortable it will be. Tuck your baby under the second shoulder piece and spread the fabric. Pull the logo piece of fabric up and over your baby’s bottom and back, with your baby’s legs pulled through or covered. Love your baby.
UPRIGHT NEWBORN / INFANT HOLD Grab the shoulder piece closest to your body. Slide your baby down your chest and into the shoulder piece. Do not separate your baby’s legs. Leave them tucked in the fetal position. Spread the other shoulder piece over your baby’s body. Pull up the logo piece of fabric up and over your baby’s back and bottom.
