Other top tips would be to:
- Start babywearing as soon as possible after birth to make it as familiar and normal as possible from the beginning.
- See a babywearing consultant to make sure it’s not a simple tweak and adjustment that just has to be made.
- Try hip carries or forward-facing carriers if the issue is not being able to see around enough (age appropriate of course).
- Make sure it’s none of the common reasons your baby might be unsettled like hunger, overtired, pain, wet nappy, etc.

These bubbas always like to keep their parents on their toes and to challenge me in consultations 🥰
Did your baby take to being settled straight away or did it take some time?
Parents persist with feeding, sleep routines, car seat dramas, food… so don’t throw out babywearing too soon. Keep persisting with it too.
