How to use the Bundlebean Babywearing Cover on your back

I have had loads of questions recently about whether the Bundlebean babywearing cover can be used on your back and how easy it is or isn’t to get onto your back. The answer is it is super easy!

Here is how I do it;

For those who prefer written instructions to a video;

  • I first got my daughter Rachel (who is 4) onto my back. We are using the Tula Toddler carrier in this video.
  • Then I set up Bundlebean up so the two elasticated straps on each side were attached to each other forming 2 loops like on a ruck sack
  • I passed the Bundlebean round behind my back holding each strap in each hand then keeping it as far away from my back as possible pulled it up and on putting my arms into each loop
  • I then adjusted the straps so that sat comfortably on my carrier straps and tucked Rachel’s legs in.
  • If I wanted to I could then tighten the straps by adjusting the velcro or even cross them across my front – whatever feels most comfortable to me. Usually I don’t bother and leave them rucksack style.

Viola!

I hope this is helpful. You can purchase your own Bundlebean babywearing cover here. And I have a full review of this nifty little product here.

BundleBean Babywearing Cover Review

The BundleBean babywearing cover is one of those rare products that truly are UNIVERSAL. Many things claim to work with everything else and then in reality are all a bit hit and miss. But not so for the BundleBean cover. It truly is 100% waterproof, and it truly fits every carrier and every sling I’ve ever tried with it. Which is well over 100 different brands and models at this point!

It will fit over stretchy wraps, ring sling, woven wraps, Meh Dai, buckle carriers and even over the big structured hiking style carriers. It will work on most buggies and pushchairs too.

The reason for this flexibility comes from the 4 elasticated velcro ties, which can attach to each other, themselves, to other tabs on the cover… offering you a huge number of different configurations to suit all different sling types and all different parent shapes and sizes. From the super petite to the plus sized, men and women alike. Likewise the elasticated panel and well placed poppers means that the panel will fit all the way from newborn to 4 years!! So lasting you as long as you could possibly need.

See the cover in action and hear me rave about it some more here:

It comes in 2 weights – a fleece lined all seasons version that will definitely keep baby cosy in the winter, and a lightweight rain cover that will keep baby dry without adding warmth (so great for warmer months or if you and baby are prone to overheating).

All in all the Bundlebean is a great accessory for any babywearing parent, perfect for getting out and about in the British wind/rain/drizzle!! At £29.95 for the lightweight rain cover and £39.95 for the fleece lined version these make perfect gifts for new parents too! Available from the Sheen Slings webshop here.
