I currently care for a 10 day old and would like to make use of a sling.

I have a Hana wrap and a friend showed me how to position the baby in a kind of foetal position however I can't work out how to do it again and can only find how to do it with the baby "standing up" a bit like a baby bjorn, but using the hana, any ideas - can't find what I need on youtube.

This page had clear instructions with pictures:

Basically, you want it right (like a bandage), high and so you can see the baby's face. Use the TICKS checklist to be confident you've got it right.

Tight, not right.
