Hello all, to those who know about amauti's I have a question for you. We are expecting our 3rd baby at the beginning of October, right when the weather turns cold and the snow starts to fall. I've worn my other two children in the amauti, but not as a newborn. My dd was 6 months before we needed to put her in. So how do you wear a newborn?
I did find some awesome videos on Youtube, showing that the baby needs to be wrapped and the trick to sliding into the pouch through a pulled up hood and over the shoulder. But again, newborn? Any suggestions or hints. I'm worried about there being too much room in the pouch even with the belt tied higher. How will I keep her from lying down or falling over, and how will I best support her head?
We probably won't get the really cold snaps until Dec or Jan, and by then she'll be 3 months or so, and this won't be much of a problem. But if we're out for walks in Oct or Nov I don't have another jacket to keep her warm in, and I'm not sure that just a shawl will be warm enough.
