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.
One DIDYMOS sling – so many options
Upright 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
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.
You can be sure your newborn is in the best position if you can kiss her head while carrying her upright across your stomach
Sideways on the hip from eight to ten weeks onwards
- 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
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.
On the back from three months
- 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
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.
