Hi! I just purchased a woven wrap to wrap my 16 mos, 25 lb son. We currently use a ring sling and he does great with a hip carry. I am hoping to eventually to do a do back carry with him so I can get some things done around the house. Well, the wrap arrived today in the mail and I was very excited to give it a shot. Massive, catastrophic FAIL. From the moment I put him on my back, he started screaming and trying to push himself up. He never settled down and I gave up.
So, um, does anyone have any tips or tricks?
When he was younger (8 mos-ish, I think) - I tried a back carry in an Ergo in a store and he absolutely hated that too. I thought it could have been the fit, newness, being in a store, etc that could have been the problem...maybe he doesn't like being on my back. Sometimes I will push the ring sling around to my back to do a few things and he doesn't mind that, it's just really uncomfortable for me.
hmm, well, the wrap is functioning as a really nice blanket for me right now, so I guess it's not a total loss. :)
