Helpful Tips for Babywearing in the Hug 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 :)
