my baby is 2 mo now and thhe wrap I've been doing is ok but we need a new one. she wants to look around.<br><br>
I am confused about all the different variations on this page:<a href="http://mamatoto.org/Default.aspx?tabid=180" target="_blank">http://mamatoto.org/Default.aspx?tabid=180</a><br><br>
Whats the difference?<br><br><br>
Also, she screams when I put her in the infant wrap, (while I am wrapping) and then she is fine and ok. Would you continue to do it?

The first one is really easy to pop the baby in/out after you have tied it. It does take some practice to get it just the right tightness when tying without the baby in there. If she likes being worn, I'd keep wearing her but try to minimize the getting in/out time. You can also pre-tie a FCC with the cross more toward your hip or pre-tie a hip cross carry for her to see a bit more of your daily action. You can frog her legs up in either carry rather than have them out; my little guy was most comfortable this way for a long time. I would not turn her out at all. I'm also pretty cautious about back carries and would wait awhile on those. Others do them with tiny new babies.<br>
Happy tying,<br>

she seems to not like being wrapped unless sleeping. she wants me to hold her over my shoulder all day with 2 other kids to care for. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

What kind of wrap do you have? Stretchy? Woven? It makes a big difference when you start to branch out. Stretchy wraps seem to be good at just one kind of wrap.<br><br>
You may want to try a sling or MT to get a different feeling carry. I always go to the sling when DS is having a I wanna be on your shoulder kinda day. I can wear him nice and high. It's not the best sling carry but it's better than just my arms.<br><br>
I suggest picking a wrap/carry and practicing it everyday until you feel comfortable with it. It's be best way to build confidence and get a feel for what different wrap carries are good for. I wrap differently for different activities and find things working or not based on mood and as DS grows.

You can tie her on your shoulder where she likes to be. mamatoto and The Baby Wearer are both great resources for learning new carries.<br>
