GRAB AND GO GAUZE or, The "I Want to Back Carry"
by E. Franklin
I was SOOO excited to try wrapping... the thought of wearing my newborn on my back just thrilled me - and having very little cash, and knowing how short the newborn phase is, I ran out to the fabric store and bought 5 meters of 100% cotton gauze. It was too simple to be true... I didn't even hem the fabric before trying it on, and be still my heart... this little babe sighed and snuggled right in. mmmm.....
I had help with a backwrap at first, then went solo (I know it's so far from perfect). I used tutorials I found online and thanks to the babywearing community out there, I was able to choose a fast, inexpensive, supportive, cool, grippy fabric to start my baby wrapping days with (hopefully) the first of more than one woven wrap! Yay! Thank you babywearers!
