Threading and Fixing the tail of your Next9 Baby Sling

I realize that the best tip I have for anyone who wants to use a sling would be this:  master the THREADING of the sling from the get go.  The fabric has to be spread well on the rings to allow the user to adjust only a certain part by tugging the fabric on that side of the sling.

Here are the two videos to help you go through it step-by-step:

This shows where to tug if you want to adjust the outer rail/top rail or the inner rail/bottom rail.  It also shows how to use the sling as a nursing cover.

Parts of your Next9 Baby Sling

Sometime last July, we finally updated the Next9 Instructional Video.  It’s taken us more than 5 years to do so, so we had time to gather inputs from everyone!  🙂

And one input we had was to break down the video into segments so people can just choose what part they need to watch!  So this is exactly what we did.

But first, here is a still picture of Mommy Claude who wore the sling in the correct way!  So I’m using this picture to illustrate the parts of a Next9 Baby Sling:

And here is the video:

Babywearing 5

The final Babywearing Event for the year was held last October 20th at Renaissance 3000.  I missed the fourth Babywearing Event held last March, and I think that this one more than made up for it!!

Look at the picture above and see how many people went!!!

And here there are, listening intently to the talk that Jenny Ong and I were giving.

Thanks to Jenny Ong of http://www.chroniclesofanursingmom.com for the pictures!!!

We figured that we should keep the talking short and the socialization long, so Jenny and I focused on the benefits and how to babywear safely.

Most of the locally available carriers were represented (YAY!):

The great thing was that amongst all those present, all types of carriers were available!! 🙂

We ended with an activity with the kids by Gymboree hosted by Eliza Ypon.

We would like to not only thank all those who came, and all those who participated, but also those who sponsored by giving raffle prizes!

And here are all the happy winners!!!  Jenny Ong and Buding Dee (SaYa and eden and Blissful Babes) are seen here with the winners!
Thanks to Jenny Ong of http://www.chroniclesofanursingmom.com for the pictures!!!

I was so happy to have taught moms and dads how to wear their babies!  To tell you honestly, that is the part I really enjoy — when I am able to get a glimpse into another babywearer’s life story, and share each other’s BW stories.

This is the last big event for the year, but I will be at the Mommy Mundo Bazaar on the 25th of November (Sunday) from 10am to 12noon, to help out parents who need assistance in wearing their babies!  Will be hanging out with my friends Jenny of MamaBabyLove and Jonie of Mamaway.

So, shall I see you?  😉  Lemme know! 🙂
