Carries by Wrap Size

What size wrap you need depends on a few factors. What types of carries would you like to do? What size are you and your wrappee(s)? You technically would be able to do all the carries with the longest wrap size, however you would have a lot of tails left depending on what carry you did. Shorter wraps are beneficial for single layer carries, newborns and ease of use when you are out running errands. A longer wrap allows for multi layer carries and are great when you will have your child wrapped for an extended period of time.
The following is a list of wrap sizes and carries that the average person can do with that corresponding size. If you click on the carry, you will be taken to a tutorial demonstrating that specific carry. You can also use the search function of this website to look for additional tutorial videos.
