Information about the - Wrap Cross Carry
- Age: from birth

The weight is distributed evenly, relieving your back if you are carrying older, higher weighted children.

Wrap Cross Carry as a clip:
Take the unfolded Fidella sling, place it flat at the center marker around your belly and gather it a litle bit together, so that a "pouch" is created. Make sure, that both edges are facing backwards
Run both strands behind your back and in front of your shoulders, forming a "cross" pattern on your back.
Both strands fall loosely over your shoulders and over the previously formed "pouch".
Pull at the upper edge of the "pouch" to extend it for the baby.
Seat your baby sideways into the pouch. Make sure to support your baby's back. Pull both of your baby’s legs gently through the legholes - one after another. Your baby should sit in the anatomically correct spread-squat-position.
Gather the upper edge of the pouch together, so that the baby's head remains free. Secure your baby with your free hand.
Pull both ends a little apart over your shoulders. Both shoulders are completely covered with fabric, now.
Grab both strands hanging over your shoulders seperately and....
...gather both ends below the pouch together.
Bring both ends over your hips to your back.
Tie them as a cross above your hip at your back.
This is how it looks like from the side.
If your toddler is older and larger you can fan out the sling for getting a better weight distribution.
Fan out both straps over the back of your child..
Do the same with both strands lying on your shoulders to support the head of the baby.
Fidella wishes you: Happy Babywearing!
