Using a soft-structure wrap


A lot like the mei tai is the soft structure carrier. Again, it’s a panel of fabric, but instead of having tie straps, we’ve got different buckles that we use. Goes on a little bit different, because it’s got this padded waist. So I put it on non-apron, because it’s going to be real secure around my hips. And there’s no way baby’s legs are going to be able to get through there. So again, if I’ve got a newborn that’s not splitting their legs, I’m going to keep the legs in. I’m going to pull this fabric up, put the arms on – and this one is when you really learn how to do things behind your back. There’s also a clip back here that I can clip to keep it really secure, if I’m going to be doing a lot of moving around and I’m afraid that these straps are going to slip.
