Every month we feature a carry or carrier to highlight at our monthly meetings and online (“BWITCCOTM” stands for Babywearing International of the Twin Cities Carry or Carrier of the Month).
This month we are featuring front wrap cross carry (FWCC). FWCC is a base size carry that is beginner-friendly. It’s do-able in a woven wrap, stretchy wrap, or hybrid wrap (hybrid wraps are stretchy but designed for safe back carrying in addition to front carrying). FWCC is often used to determine one’s base length. Note, one’s base length may change over time for various reasons, it is not a permanent number. Refer to graphic below.

Below are video tutorials for the basic FWCC with the double knot in the back, front wrap cross carry tied at shoulder, Anne’s front carry (another variation of FWCC), and a twin variation of FWCC.
