**Practice putting your baby on your back the first few times while on a bed or with support until you are comfortable with this maneuver.**
 

The carry above is called Jordan’s Back Carry (JBC).  You can use many different varieties of tying off the tails.  Shown above is an at-the-shoulder tie, also called TAS (tie-at-shoulder).

Some other favorite back carries are Back-Wrap-Cross-Carry (BWCC), the Double-Hammock (DH), and the Rucksack-Carry (RUCK, also shown below).  Please see youtube.com or thebabywearer.com for more information and additional tutorials.

Please carry safely!

  • Your baby is your responsibilty – babywearing can be very safe as long as you use common sense and follow some guidelines.
  • Before you put the sling on, check all stitching for signs of weakness. If any faults are apparent, don’t use the carrier.
  • Before you try your sling with a real baby, it’s a good idea to practice on a doll or teddy. When you do use your sling with your baby, and as you are learning to use it, it’s a good idea to get another adult to help you, by supporting your baby as you tie the straps. When you progress to doing this yourself, put your baby in over a sofa or bed.
  • Be aware of your baby’s position in the sling – check he has a good air supply, if he is asleep that his head is supported, and that he looks comfortable – a mirror is a great way to check bits you can’t see.  Remember: keep your baby viewable and kissable.
  • Make sure he isn’t too hot – your body heat will give him warmth too, so you will not need to put as many layers on him as you would do in a stroller. It’s much easier and cosier to put one coat over both of you than try to get a sling on over your coat. In winter, watch out for extremities like the legs getting cold.
  • Always tie using a double knot.
  • Don’t perform dangerous / energetic tasks with your baby in a sling
  • Be aware of things your baby can reach – particularly in the kitchen, things such as knives and anything hot.
  • Look after your back – Bend at the knees, Dont’ bend over at the waist. Also change positions if you wear your baby for long periods, change shoulders or try a different carry with your wrap.

 

**Woven Wraps does not claim any responsibility from injury due to babywearing.  Please be cautious when learning these carries and keep your baby safe!**

More about the Tula Ergonomic Baby Carrier

Tula Baby Carrier is hand made in their own factory in Poland. They do not outsource manufacturing of the products, therefore have a full control on the quality of everything made. They do not use assembly lines! Each product is truly made by hand by one person from the beginning to the end. Our seamstresses are getting paid hourly, as we want them to work relaxed and we want to prevent defected products, which could occur with time pressure.

Each carrier is inspected by their quality assurance manager before packing in the box.

It is one of the simplest carriers in the market and they want everyone to intuitively be able to put the carrier on and enjoy the benefits of wearing a baby.

The Tula philosophy:

“We love baby wearing and all it has to offer. It’s practical for the parent, it has amazing benefits for the baby and it feels so good to have your baby snuggle in close!

Babywearing isn’t a trend, it is also not a skill you need to learn. Every parent should follow his natural instincts.

We do not support criticism and looking down at parents for the type of a wrap or carrier they chose to use. We believe that every parent tries to make the best decision and the best choice for his baby.

Have an amazing experience discovering all the benefits of having your child close and your hands free to do as you please.”
