The 2 scariest things about babywearing in my opinion are, getting a baby on and off your back. The dismount off the back is probably the thing that took me the longest to perfect when I first started babywearing. I didn’t have anyone teaching me, and all the videos I watched only showed getting the baby up there and not how to take baby down, so I had to figure that one out for myself.
At first it is a bit awkward…getting the feel for how to place your hands and swing them around to get them off safely and quickly. I did a lot of practicing on my knees on a bed so if they fell, they weren’t falling far. Even using a doll to practice at first can be helpful to get the arm placements and the swing motion down before you move onto a real baby. It’s also really good for freaking people out if your doing it in public 😉 .
