Carry Introduction: This is a great carry for beginners, especially if you are transitioning from a stretchy wrap like the Boba or Moby to a woven wrap because it is a poppable front carry similar to the carries that you are most likely familiar with. FCC is a great carry from infant to toddler and is a good carry for those just learning to wrap. I still use it often with my toddler when he is looking for snuggles on the front or if he wants to nurse when we are out and about. The cross passes make it a good carry for leg straighteners and the multiple passes give good support for toddlers.
If you are new to woven wraps, here is a great post to get you familiar with them and with key terminology.
For some information on how much fabric should be between you and baby, and how to make a good seat, Modern Babywearing is a good resource.
And as always, please keep in mind some basic safety considerations from Babywearing International.
