I have a 4.5 month old, and I have a Moby Wrap that I love. I think we're ready for a back carry (my baby is strong, and can hold his head up very well).
The Moby Wrap carry instructions that came with it only offer instructions for a back carry using "partner assistance". I have a wonderful DH, but he's only around evenings and weekends, and I'd really like to get baby up on my back during the day.
Like many, I'm more than a little nervous about trying to get baby up on my back by hiking him over my shoulder ~~ I'm pretty klutzy, petite, and have a big baby. I remember some time ago, probably when I was pregnant, seeing a demo somewhere, either in photos or video, of getting a baby onto your back by putting him on a couch or chair & going through some steps that way. For whatever reason, that seems easier or safer to me, but I could be wrong.
I have been searching the 'net for an hour or so trying to find these instructions, and I give up! Does anyone here have any info they can share on this method? Links?
I suppose if I can't find it, I'll have to get brave
