    Default Alternative ties for the HAB

    Has anyone tried tying their hug a bub in a non-standard way?

    I use a hip carry tie occasionally for short periods now that Kynan's a bit older. It's not as supportive for him or me as the official HAB ties are but it's great for situations where he's awake and wants to look around but, for whatever reason, I don't want him waving his arms/legs around in front of me like in the normal facing outwards position.

    The only ties I used with Elijah was heart-to-heart or on-the-go - I want to use the koala cuddle with him now that he's bigger, so will have to have a play. I haven't used it in other ties though!

    We've done all of the official hug a bub ties and the only one I couldn't get the hang of was the peapod one. I think Kynan just didn't like that particular position. The koala cuddle is great - if he gets sleepy I can just tuck his head back in!

    I have a pic of Kynan in the hip carry here.
