This post is part of my Beginner’s Guide to Woven Wraps series. In it, I share the different ways to use a woven wrap to carry your child. There are several different types of carries you can learn! I share my favorites and some example photos below!

So, there are several different carries for woven wraps. Like A LOT. But the single most used one I believe is the Front Wrap Cross Carry (FWCC). I have shared how to do it many times on my Instagram, and you can see a video on my IGTV channel here. It’s fairly simple once you practice a few times!
WOVEN WRAP CARRIES
There are three types of carries to use the woven wraps for…I name a few of my favorite carries for each type, but know there are TONS of different ways to use a woven wrap.
1 // front carry
front wrap cross carry (fwcc)
semi-front wrap cross carry (semi-fwcc with a twist)
2 // back carry
3 // hip carry
rebozo (this is super similar to a sling, but you use a wrap to “create” a sling type carry instead!

WOVEN WRAP CARRIES CHART
Here is a list of carries that coordinate withs size. Most of the wraps in my stash are my base size (6) and that’s everyone’s base, typically unless you prefer a 7 for more length, or a 5 if you are petite. The shorter wraps, like 2’s, 3’s, and 4’s are for specific carries. They are measured by meters, so here are the conversions here:
