A specific small percentage of elasthanne is added to cotton in an unique and dense knitting pattern specifically developed for the carrying of babies.

Your questions about the Original JPMBB Wrap

How do I know which is my stronger shoulder? Why do I need to know this?

The «stronger shoulder» is a pedagogical concept used to give the wrapper instructions when he first tries wrapping, all the while preserving the habits and reflexes he / she already developed when caring for Baby.

During our workshops, we ask parents to hold a weighed doll - spontaneously, without any further instructions. The shoulder on which they instinctively put Baby is the one we’ll consider the «stronger» shoulder.

We noticed that it’s easier to start wrapping this way.

 

Allaitement en Berceau Assis en écharpe de portage JPMBB

 


When using carries that begin from Pre-Tied Advanced PWCC (Vertical / Seated Cradle or Front positions), the upper strap is on the stronger shoulder, so we begin with putting Baby on this shoulder and then we put him in the lower strap that’s on the opposite side. The wrapper will find that it’s easier and will be more confident trying these new moves.

This whole stronger shoulder concept is important for wrapping a newborn in Pre-Tied Advanced PWCC.

When using Hip Carries, people tend to get mixed up and think the stronger shoulder is on the side of the hip that Baby sits on, but that’s not necessarily true. So attention must be paid to the hip we want the Baby to sit on, not only to the stronger shoulder. In this case, if using One-Shoulder Hip Carry (front PWCC), you may need to switch the side of the superior strap.

 

 

Is JPMBB wrap in conformity?

Yes.

You can find more details about conformity and quality controls of JPMBB products in this page, also accessible via the footer.

What’s the difference between a woven wrap (cross twill) and the "Original" Je Porte Mon Bébé wrap (knit - stretchy)?

If the carries are done correctly, Baby can be in a correct, physiological posture with both kinds of wraps.

 

The difference is that the carries aren't the same, the sensation when wrapping and the way they're used are completely different.

 

In the JPMBB wrap:
  • Baby can easily be popped in and out of the wrap, you don't have to untie it.
  • You don't have to «leave some room» for Baby when tying the wrap, the fabric stretches enough to put him in without sagging or oppressing you both.
  • The wrap is pre-tied, no need to hold Baby while you tie the wrap (Tummy-to-Tummy Carry, Vertical / Seated Cradle Carry, One-Shoulder Hip Carry, Back PWCC can all be done from Pre-Tied Advanced PWCC). This is especially convenient with newborns.
  • The fabric can be spread on your hips and buttocks. Your stomach doesn't feel oppressed. You can wear low rise jeans and bend over without showing too much. ;-)
  • Baby's head can be covered without tension, even if the wrapper's moving.
  • Baby's supported evenly, he can move his arms and legs, push on his hands and feet, keep «moving» as if still in his mother's womb.

 

Woven wraps (Néobulle, Colimaçon, Kubeba, Coté Coeur, Storchenwiege, Lana, Didymos...) are very good quality wraps also.
But to some people, they might seem a bit more «tricky» to use, with many different carries and the fabric to adjust each time.
They're a great complement to a JPMBB.

I’m used to woven wraps. Are there some special tips I should know?

The JPMBB is nothing like cross twill. Many experienced wrappers think that both wraps are a great complement to each other.
Pre-tie Advanced PWCC quite high on your torso (same as with a woven), and once you put Baby in, don't be afraid to spread the fabric on your hips and buttocks so that the knot won't remain on your belly as with woven wraps.

Spread the fabric as you like on your shoulders and back.


You don't have to «leave some room» for Baby.


If you're wearing Baby for long periods of time, spread the fabric so that the tails are on your hips and your waist alternately.

Should I wash my wrap before using it?

We recommend washing the wrap before using it.

 

Care instructions: machine wash cold, air dry, hot iron, no bleach.

 

No fabric likes tumble drying, treat your wrap as if it were your favorite shirt.

What’s the difference between the long wrap and the short wrap?

Hem... length! ;-) But also the shape and the way it's used.

 

The long wrap (5 meters) is especially designed to pre-tie Advanced PWCC and put baby in and out without re doing the knot, whatever your size (up to 110kg). You can also do every other carry shown in the instruction booklet or on the tutorial videos (front, hip and back carries).

 

bras-securise

 

 

The short wrap (3.50 meters) is designed mostly for hip and back carries, or front carries other than PWCC. If you're bigger than a size 42/44 (UK 12/14, US 10/12) there are some carries you won't be able to do.

It's a shorter, convenient wrap when you often use back or hip carries that require less fabric. You can also do Rebozo Carries, that aren't so hot in the summer!

 

echarpe-court

 

The shape

The wrap is 70cm wide, but it's narrower on the tails so that the final knot isn't too bulky.

The length

This size is unique.
The long wrap is 5 meters. You can cut the wrap if you need to, for example after losing a lot of weight after giving birth.
The fabric doesn't need to be hemmed. We'd rather you had too much fabric and needed to cut the wrap, than the other way around.

 

We gave the length of the wrap a lot of thought and had it tested by numerous parents in order to find the best length to fit different body types, men and women, and Babies of various ages.

 

With the short wrap you can do other carries once you're used to wrapping.

 

The short wrap is 3.50 meters long. You can do hip and back carries that don't need this much fabric, and carries other than PWCC. It is a handy second wrap when you often wear your Baby in hip or back carries.

The fabric

Most stretchy wraps are 100% cotton, but the JPMBB wrap is 95% cotton and 5% Spandex. This makes the cotton fiber (which isn't naturally flexible) stretch and avoids sagging, even after an intensive use or when wearing a heavy kid.
Most wraps «stretch» only because they're rib knit (the fabric stretches like an accordion) and not because of the fibers they're made of. Those fabrics have no «memory» and cannot stretch vertically, horizontally and diagonally.

 

The fabric is knit only and exclusively for JPMBB. Although there are many other stretchy wraps, JPMBB doesn't compare with any of them.

 

The JPMBB wrap is the only one that stretches in every direction: vertically, horizontally and diagonally. This makes Pocket Wrap Cross Carry more flexible than with other fabrics. Even if there are several layers of fabric in this carry, Baby is held evenly with a harmonious tension, while the lower layers of fabric keep their stretch.
Woven, 100% cotton wraps (cross twill) can only stretch a bit diagonally. They are soft and firm at the same time, that's optimum for Baby's and wrapper's comfort in Kangaroo Carries, where there's only one layer of fabric on Baby's back.
Knit, 100% cotton wraps that only stretch lengthwise aren't ideal for Cradle Carries that need the fabric to stretch widthwise. This uneven stretch, and the fact that they are often quite narrow, makes them harder to use with a bigger Baby.
The fact that the stretch comes from the weaving and not the fiber can lead to sagging when the wrap is used frequently with a heavier child.

 

The JPMBB wrap is very dense and can be used to wear children from birth up to 14kg, even on long periods of time. For big, tall children, we recommend back carries.

 

Care instructions: machine wash cold, air dry, hot iron, no bleach. No fabric likes tumble drying: treat your wrap as if it were your favorite shirt.

The Original JPMBB wrap

The Original JPMBB wrap can be pre-tied before putting in Baby.

 

You can pop Baby in and out without having to untie the wrap, which is very nice with newborns who need frequent changing.

 

From Pre-Tied Advanced PWCC, you can wear Baby in various carries on the front, the back or the hip according to his age and needs.

 

The wrap is dense, soft and breathable. It molds to Baby as a second skin that holds his whole body without any bulk or crease.

 

The wrap can be used from birth up to 14kg. It is 5 meters long and 70 cm wide. Fabric: 95% Cotton, 5% Spandex. It's free of allergenic dyes or heavy metals, Oeko Tex 100. 2 years guarantee (except seams).

Baby is not centered on my back in Double Hammock

Carrying positions, either in a wrap or just holding baby in your arms, aren't necessarily symmetrical. We instinctively adopt an asymmetrical position when holding a baby.

 

This is the same when you have your baby in a Rebozo Carry and hip scoot him to your back.
A good carry isn't about baby being perfectly centered on your back. The most important thing is that his natural position is respected.


The symmetry of the carry will vary if one knee is slightly higher than the other, if one hand got outside the wrap and ended up in baby's mouth, if baby's asleep or awake.

I’ve never tried back carries. Which one do you recommend?

The carry will depend on how old your baby is when you first try putting him on your back.


After Baby reaches 4 months, you can use Back PWCC so that you and Baby can smoothly get used to back carries. This is a good initiation to back carries, it’s easy to do, the same as Pre-Tied Advanced PWCC but on your back. You can also come to a workshop.

Once you feel confident enough, Double Hammock is another great option. You can see what Double Hammock and its variations are in our video tutorials section.

You can practice these new experiences with your Baby in your arms.

- Support his buttocks and pelvis.

- Use simple exercises without the wrap, to get acquainted with the new sensations.

- For example, scoot your Baby from your front to your hip, then your back, and back to the front.

What are the differences between the various hip carries?

One-Shoulder Hip Carry (front PWCC) can be done from the Pre-Tied Advanced PWCC. You can put your baby on the hip (once he reaches 3 - 4 months) to give him a broader field of vision and then change to another position without having to take the wrap off and tie it again. It's a good initiation to hip carries.

 

 

You just tried this carry and you have a question ? See the Users' Corner. Find a workshop.




Kangaroo Hip Carry with cross passes or Hip Carry With Loop aren't done from Pre-Tied Advanced PWCC. In them, the wrap can be adjusted more precisely and be more comfortable for the wrapper. They are especially interesting if you have a short wrap (less fabric is required) and a curious baby who wants to look around (about 3 or 4 months) and is often worn on the hip.

Do I always have to put my baby’s head inside the wrap?

The wrap can support baby's head but doesn't have to cover it.

 

Before your baby reaches 4 months:


The wrap must support his head (in a Vertical / Seated Cradle Carry with a one month-old for example) from behind his neck, especially if you're walking and he's asleep.

In front carries, with his spine in a curve, his head is naturally supported as it lies against the wrapper (be careful to relieve tensions as it falls to his chest or turns to the side).
Baby's airway should be clear at all times.

After 4 months, when baby has good head control:

 

As his neck becomes more mobile, he probably won't like having fabric on his head when he's awake, but you can try and put the wrap on his head when he is asleep.
