After following the Getting Started Steps, continue below:
Explore instruction
Place baby in a sitting position in the center of the inner loop. Baby can sit "criss-cross applesauce."
Explore instruction
Make sure baby is centered in the fabric (as if in a hammock). Baby’s head, shoulders and one or both arms can be free.
Explore instruction
Place your arm through the outer loop that is hanging at your waist, and pull it back up onto your shoulder.

Explore instruction
Spread the fabric of the outer loop over baby’s bottom.
Explore instruction
Reach behind your back and slide support band down so that the loops cross at the center of your back (for optimal back support).
Explore instruction
Adjust fabric on your shoulders so that it is comfortable.
Done with the Explore Position? Time for a Safety Check.

Helpful Tips for Babywearing in the Explore Position

Try your carrier when baby is fed, rested and in a good mood. If baby is fussing, calmly take him/her out and try again later.
Ensure that the fabric is spread wide between baby's legs - reaching the bend in baby's knees - to create a comfortable seat.
Baby can sense your mood. If you are stressed, baby will sense this & will also be stressed! Keep practicing and stay calm :)
