A great page of picture of "wrapped babies"... but it's in German. Not comprehensible to me. But I love these clear pictures of beautifully worn beautiful looking wraps.
Scroll down and there they are. Click on the pictures to enlarge them.http://www.wad.de/websites/kaleb_tra...varianten.html
You can use http://babelfish.altavista.com/
to translate the page, but unfortunately there are still no instructions. You can read the names of the holds though.
Have you seen these pages? They are in other languages as well, but some have videos or picture instructions.http://www.babyidea.fi/kantoliinoist...idontojaX.htmlhttp://www.kantoliinakanava.fi/sidontaohjeet?currDir=

A few translations of the German words:
Wickel means wrap
Kreuz means cross
trage means carry/way of carrying
so wickelkreuztrage is a cross wrap
rucken means back, so any rucken trage are on your back.
huft is hip (carry)
tuch is piece of fabric.
sorry, no can do on the finnish stuff
I learned how to wear my babies fromwww.mamatoto.org
or what's now calledwww.wearyourbaby.org
It's been such a great resource! They have step by step dirrections with photos, like the sites above, but with written instructions in English and even videos with sound. Plus, they also show you how to make your own wrap (what type of and size fabric to buy!
There ARE so many cool ways to wrap 'em up! I'm definately going to learn some more!
Oh! And Sheena you want to do the "baby pocket". Here are the instructions http://www.mamatoto.org/Default.aspx?tabid=101

I hope it's okay to say (since I'm not pimping my own product) but a new DVD on babywearing just came out. It covers slings, wraps, ABCs, and pouches and it about 2 1/2 hours with chapter breaks for all different carries (now if my DVD player would just repeat the chapter for the back carry I want to do...). I think it's great and am so impressed by the work that was put into it. Yes I know the parents who conceived the idea (they are very passionate about babywearing) and have put out the video. Yes my little one was used for a few carries - just want to be honest here- but I really do think it's a great idea and very well done. I'm just one of those people with a slow internet connection at home who doesn't do so great by reading instructions and looking at pics so this really is a great thing for me.
