The New Obimama!

About a month ago, you all helped us to win a new carrier for our library from Obimama!  It came in the mail and several of you have had a chance to try it at meetings, so I present some beautiful photos of our lovely mamas and their babies trying out this beautiful wrap conversion!

Tutorial: Rucksack with a Woven Wrap

This carry is a popular choice for those looking for a high back carry. The creation of the seat is the MOST important point of this carry. If you do not carefully ensure that the wrap is tucked well between you, it can pop out from under baby creating a fall hazard. I regularly reach back when using this carry to double check and make sure my wrap hasn't wiggled loose. Another thing to be sure of, you want that bottom rail to be snug, but if you pull it TIGHT, you will likely have worse butt popage. While this carry looks "easy," I actually find it to be one of the more challenging carries to get correct. Please practice kneeling on the floor or on/next to the bed until you are confident with your carry.

If you want additional help, please come to a meeting and we'll be happy to give you some hands-on help.
