How difficult is binding?

Don't be afraid. Tying, like many things in life, simply needs to be practiced. The best way to do this is to watch our videos in front of the mirror. With time, you will develop a feeling for tight and symmetrical tying. Eventually you'll become a real pro and it won't take you long at all! You'll really enjoy trying out new ways of tying.

How long will it take me to learn how to tie?

That depends on you! If you are diligent and practice often, you will learn in no time!

Which Baby Wraps are particularly easy to tie?

For beginners we recommend to use a Baby Wrap with a lower basis weight. Thinner fabric is easier to tighten and does not require so much effort. Also suitable for the beginning is a Baby Wrap with a color gradient, such as Marie in Wonderland. The color gradient will make it easier for you to distinguish between the individual layers of fabric. You will see better if you have sorted your cloth correctly or if a small mistake has been made.

What effect does the fabric have on the binding?

Thin fabrics are known to be easier to put on and require less force. Solid fabrics many find more comfortable for their heavy children. With them, you need a little more force to tighten. Of course, all of our Baby Wraps are suitable for safe and comfortable tying!

For whom is tying particularly suitable?

Sling tying is generally recommended for more experienced babywearing parents or for parents who want to learn to be engaged. In general, anyone can learn to tie if you take the time to make it comfortable and learn for yourself and your baby. Practice makes perfect!

What do I need to consider when tying my sling?

In general, it is important to keep the following points in mind:

  • Make sure your child always sits in the tuck-and-spread position. This means: the back is round and the knees are above his belly button.
  • Your child should always sit at head-kiss height. That is, so high that you can simply give him a kiss on the head.
  • The Baby Wrap must always be tied tightly. After tying, lean forward slightly. Your child should not be able to detach from your body now.
