How do I use this thing???
Thu, 10-14-2004 - 2:08pm
I was at the fabric store yesterday and saw a lady with a wrap/sling/pouch. (I don't know the difference.) Her baby was alot bigger than mine, maybe about 9 or 10 months. Anyway what she had done was taken a sheet and two big brass rings, threaded the sheet through and voila! A carrier.

So I went home and got a sheet. (I tried reading the instructions on the website, but I am dyslexic and it really confused me.) I used two rings from the hardware store, and it seems to work beautifully. But Emily can only lie on her side (like the cradle hold) and I think its boring because she fusses a lot.

I know there are other ways to use the carrier, but I don't know what they are. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I just started using a sling for my 5 month old and bought a Maya Wrap.
