Ask Morgan: The Secret to Keeping Your Wrap Tight

I've been a babywearing educator for over nine years and babywearing myself for 11, and the No. 1 question I always get asked is, "How do I keep my wrap tight?" or "How do I keep my baby from loosening/lowering in the wrap?"

The adjustment is simple and the same no matter your shape, body type, baby’s age or size, or if you are wearing your first baby or your third.

Remember: Equally snug is the key.

When tying on, it is not about how tight or loose you get your wrap but that you make sure everything is equally snug and touching your body with no "sneaky slack."

After tying on, you should be able to close your eyes and feel each part of the wrap—midsection, shoulder straps and the ends wrapped around your waist—touching your body. Nothing should feel tight or cinched, but it's just as important that no section of your wrap is loose or floppy before tying off, either.

One thing that can help: Keep the long ends up around your natural waist when tying off your double-knot, not down around your hips. This will make all the difference!

Here's a visual demonstration of the above adjustments:
