Woven wrap and baby facing out

My dd is 12 weeks, I've been using an ellaroo woven wrap which I love to carry her facing me, but she's increasingly wanting to face outwards so she can see. Can anyone direct me to any online resources that would show me how to tie the wrap with her facing outwards? I've only used the tie on the leaflet that came with the wrap so far.

This link sums up why there isn't a facing out option with most decent slings.

If she's getting nosey, and has good head control, then a hip carry could be a good option.

Have a search on Youtube for "woven wrap hip carry" and see what takes your fancy, carries include Robins Hip Carry, Poppins Hip Carry, Hip Cross Carry, and Rebozo hip carry. Although the Rebozo one is designed for a much shorter wrap.

Other option would be a nice high back carry so she can look over your shoulder. Have a look for videos of Rucksack/Ruck carries as a starting point.

Thanks Mouse. I never considered that facing forward was a problem, probably why my search for forward facing ties didn't come up with much!
