I got this so I could carry baby w/o all the straps a and portable oxygen tank backpack but the items is too long on me, not easy to use if you have a micro preemie on oxygen, and it’s complicated to put on.!
Thank you for your feedback! Having a micro premie on oxygen is so challenging, and I first just want to acknowledge that you are doing an amazing job for your baby. I absolutely want you to be able to carry your baby, and so I hope that these suggestions can help.
A woven wrap is really flexible and versatile, but I can definitely see how it would be hard to wrap around those things. My first suggestion would be for you to practice wrapping around a baby doll, get the hang of the motions, and then practice with that doll with something representing your baby's tubing. There are several factors at play that make this a bit more challenging, and I think breaking down each step for yourself and feeling confident there will help you to transfer that more easily to your actual baby.
Another option for you to consider--I've found that many families with more complex medical needs children find it easier to settle into babywearing with something that has open sides because it allows for more obvious places to include tubing, etc. It's challenging because when babies are super small, some of the open side carriers (SSCs, meh dais, etc) simply aren't small enough to hold baby properly.
And of course, I want to encourage you, because babies are constantly growing and changing, and every time you try things will get easier just because your baby is growing and getting stronger, and you are also learning and getting better.
Finally, I want to refer you to the Facebook group Special Needs Babywearing. This isn't a group I manage, but they do have some really experienced caregivers who are familiar with many carrying situations and can give you feedback from personal experience. That group link is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/551232571641531
I hope that that helps. Thank you for reaching out. Wishing the best for you and your family.
All the best,
Like Joseph's coat of many colours and a promise fulfilled, this wrap is a song of hope. I am impressed by the craftsmanship and am honoured to offer it to my son as a hammock of protection. Thank you for selling such high quality goods as they are hard to come by these days. Keep up the good work.
This wrap is beautiful with such bright colors that the photos don't do it justice. It's also sturdy and soft right out of the box. The only complaint I have is that the rails are a bit difficult to distinguish from one another because the top and bottom of the wrap are similar colors.
Such a great wrap and gorgeous as well! My little one and I are excited to use this beauty for many adventures.
This wrap gives me huge light, sunny fairy dream vibes. We haven’t used it yet but it already feels so nice and my 3 y/o adores the colors
