Backpack Hold and Diaper Clutch Tip

I found out about wraps late in the game with Finn. I had used the backpack hold with him, but he was 18 months old and heavy (35ish pounds :/). I was cleaning yesterday for many hours prepping for a baby shower and when I tried to put Franco back in the exersaucer for one last chore, he seriously communicated with adult-like facial expressions that it was not OK, followed by baby-like sobs. Franco is 22 pounds, sitting up and almost 6 months old, so I thought I would try putting him on my back. My husband helped me load him up and there we were, mopping the kitchen floor. Talk about awesome. I felt like he was getting in some good mommy time and I was able to get stuff done as well. Thank you wrap!

One of the things you can't do while babies are in the wrap on your back is take a self portrait, therefore, I don't have a pic of the backpack hold yet. I'll get on that tomorrow. As far as instructions go, you just start with the middle of the fabric on your tummy instead of back and literally put the wrap on backwards. We are going to be improving our wearing instructions soon . . . so much to do.


Wipes are a mom's best friend. Quick and easy access to wipes at all times is a must. The clutches are good for knowing where the wipes are. Here's a tip for being able to access the wipes a little quicker when the clutch is all folded up. When folding the clutch, on the side where the pocket opening is, place the pad flap under the diaper & wipes pocket. Then fold up the clutch as usual. That way the wipes are visible and grabable from the side of the clutch.

All nighters are for tough fighters, but the next days hangover makes you feel like a macbook on 1/4 power...

I love the camo op, it looks like Scott could rock it and no one would know the difference between that and his usual garb.
