Mermaid Carry as a clip:
Find the midpoint of your Fidella® baby wrap.
Spread out the sling across your baby’s back. The midpoint should be on neck height.
Slide your baby over your hip, underneath your armpit, onto your back.
Bring your baby into the spread-squat-position by pushing the excess sling fabric between its bottom and knees.
Lead both strands underneath your armpits to the front of your chest.
Now, you need a Sling Ring.
Pass both sling strands through the Sling Ring ...
... and keep the ring under tension on chest height.
Tighten both fabric ends individually, strand by strand, through the ring.
Clamp one fabric strand between your knees and start tightening the other one.
Grab one of the strands, bring it underneath your armpit,
across your baby's back, up to its neck, and tuck the excess fabric between you and your baby`s bum.
Lead the strand under tension over your shoulder and clamp it between your knees again. If necessary, tighten this strand again.
Do the same with the other strand as well.
After that, you can tighten both strands, hanging over your shoulders, again.
Twist both strands evenly.
Lead them backwards, underneath your armpits, across the baby's legs ...
... and cross the fabric strands under the baby’s bum.
Then, lead them back again to the front and put them underneath your baby’s legs.
Tie both ends of the sling in front of your belly with a double or flat knot.
Fan out the fabric over your breasts.
Put your baby in a squating position into the pouch by pushing its lower legs gently upwards.
This is what the Mermaid Carry looks like from the front …
… and from the back.
Fidella® wishes you: Happy Babywearing!
