How to use a pouch sling


This is a pouch sling. This particular one has a little bit of stretch to it – width wide stretch, not length wide stretch – and it is measured to your body. You fold it in half to make a pouch, slip one arm though over your head, straighten it out. I’m going to open up the pouch, I’m going to get baby, put baby up in burp position. I’m just going to push the legs together, they can froggy, just so that they don’t go backwards, and if they do don’t worry, baby will let you know soon enough. I open up and I sort of just guide baby in. Okay, so this is a great newborn hold. If baby falls asleep I can pull the fabric up a little bit more to catch the head. Real nice and comfortable, I can move around, do things, function still as a person.
