The Bugg Wrap is based on a traditional carrier being made of soft, durable and washable fabric. It will literally give your baby an extended hug while he’s being carried in it!
Special attention has been given to the way your baby’s weight is carried ensuring that the bulk of his weight is carried as he sits on his bum. In order for his legs and hips to be in the most comfortable position, his knees should be higher than his bottom while carrying him (i.e. his legs should NOT be dangling straight down). By carrying your baby in this sitting position less strain is placed on his spine.
The special way you tie your Bugg Wrap will ensure that you carry your baby’s weight split between your shoulders, your back as well as across your hips. This distribution of weight helps to prevent poor posture and back strain of the person doing the babywearing.
The Bugg Wrap is ideal to use with very small babies if they are positioned correctly and supported well. While your baby is still working on getting better head and neck control it is best to carry your baby on your front so that you can interact easily with him and shelter him from too much stimulation. As your baby’s head control gets stronger and he can manage more stimulation, you can also carry him on your back. In this position he can look around more and enjoy his ever changing environment.
