Tying tutorials



With your DIDYMOS wrap sling, DidySling, or Didy Meh-Dai (DidyTai), you’re fully equipped for everyday life with your baby! Whatever your child’s age, your tying ability, or your schedule for the day, there’s a carrying method to suit you. Each DIDYMOS baby carrier comes with its own guide, which you can also find here, along with videos and illustrated, printable PDFs. As you’ll see, you’ll want to try out different ways of tying the carriers as you become more experienced and your child grows. We hope you enjoy finding out which carrying positions are best for you and your child.



Please read the safety instructions before tying the baby wrap sling.


One DIDYMOS sling – so many options


didymos-wickelkreuztrageUpright across the chest from birth

From birth, even for the tiniest ones: wrap cross carrying position

For more experienced parents: variation on the wrap cross carrying position

Ideal for dozing off and sweet dreams: kangaroo carrying position

A variation for comfortable travel: double cross carrying position





Didy tip

You can be sure your newborn is in the best position if you can kiss her head while carrying her upright across your stomach


Please note

If you carry your child on your front, he or she should be able to look at you – belly to little belly, so to speak. Her legs should be bent, with knees at around the level of her belly button, head well supported, and back slightly rounded.

The traditional carrying position: on the hip

The practical alternative: variation on the hip carrying position

Another great hip alternative: Poppins hip carry

The hip alternative with a view: hip cross carrying position

In the hip pouch: kangaroo hip carrying position



Didy tip

Are you looking for ways to carry your child in your short sling? Then the traditional on-the-hip position is perfect for you. Alternatively, you can purchase a couple of sling rings and turn it into a ring sling.

Ideal for outings with your child: rucksack carrying position

For smaller adventurers too: back wrap cross carrying position

Supported by a wide band of fabric across the chest: double hammock carrying position





Didy tip

Always wrap your child up particularly warm during the cold months of the year if carrying her on your back, and check her feet regularly to make sure they’re still warm. The DIDYMOS babywearing jacket provides special protection against the elements for both of you, while the BabyDos provides that protection for your child.
