Double Hammock (SWV) as a clip:
Find the midpoint of your Fidella sling and position it in front of your chest.
Lead the fabric back to your spine. Now, the center of your back is the new center of your fabric. One side is longer than the other one.
Now, your baby comes into play: Grab your baby, spread the fabric across its back and make sure that the new center is located in the middle of its neck.
Let it slide gently over your hips underneath your armpit and onto your back.
Bring your baby into the spread-squat position while pushing the excess fabric between its bottom and knees.
Lead the right strand over your shoulder forward and hold it between your knees.
Surround yourself with the left strand and hold it tightly in your hand.
Now, you can tighten the right strap strand by strand.
Then, the left-hand strand is fanned out over the right strand and across your chest.
You can fix it under your chin.
Then, also tighten the left strand.
Now, lead this strand back and fan it out across the back of your baby up to its neck.
Put the excess fabric between you and your baby's bottom once again.
Tighten the strand again, so that the fanned out strand, covering both your chest and baby’s back, is really smooth. Start with the top edge.
Lead the strand under tension over your right shoulder, if necessary lead it again.
You have two tight strands - one in each hand. You can tighten both strands simultaniously again.
Push the right strand under the left one.
Twist both strands, positioned across your chest, under tension .
Lead them backwards underneath your shoulders, across the baby's legs, and cross the fabric strands under the bottom of your baby ...
... and bring them under the legs of your baby forward again .
Tie both ends of cloth with a double or flat knot in front of your belly OR put the ends into the opposite strand to prevent pressure on the abdomen (great for pregnant women!).
Now, squat your baby into the pouch by pushing the lower legs gently upwards.
This is how it looks like from the front....
... and from the back.
Fidella wishes you: Happy Babywearing!
