Lots of my mom friends are terrified of wearing their babies. When they're infants, they are just so fragile and it's actually pretty darn scary! How to position their legs, how to make sure their head is supported and they can breathe freely, it's all so confusing!!
Then, once they're older and you have to switch them to the back carry, you have to learn it all over again. And this time they're in the back where you can't really see what's going on, so it can be quite a challenge figuring that out!
So, I just wanted to shoot a quick how-to video to show you how simple it can be!! Here's me and my son demonstrating how to get into the back carry position using our Mei Tai wrap, which is similar to the Ergo. Please take note that you should probably have a spotter help you the first few times, and might want to do it on a bed or on the floor so you feel more comfortable. You should always have at least one hand on your child to keep them safe, and you can play around with the positioning of your wraps straps on your shoulders and hips to find what is most comfy to you and your child.
Good luck and happy baby wearing!!
