3madboys - how lovely you are!! That would be grand... tho I am not sure they'd get to me in time - I'm going into London on Monday morn and want to take the wilkinet cos I need to use the tube and don't want to faff around with a pushchair..
oh he is 5months ish, he may want to face outwards, to do that you lie the wilkinet down and lay him on his front on the wilkinet, you put his legs through the loops and tie the little straps as before, then do the same as was described earlier, hold him to your front with one hand chuck the straps over your shoulders, cross them over, then bring round the front and pull through the loops that his legs are through, pull round the back around your waist, all the way round back to your front and then tie
the bit that is sticking up infront of his face you can tuck down
I've just put a photo of me+ dog in carrier (giraffe too small) on my profile page so you can see the result of your good advice... I can't wait til ds wakes up from his nap and I can try it with him!!
Does it matter if the straps don't reach all the way round to the front for the final tying? Could do it with dog in the carrier but I think once ds is in it they won't be long enough and I'll need to tie at the back...
ok, have tried with the boy. How far should his head be under my chin?? I think I may be hanging him a bit low & that is why straps are too short....
Also. Are the straps supposed to dig into what used to be my waist? Tis not very comfy Think I need more practise!
