Securing the 'Lampin'

Ok... many have asked me this question.. "How do you secure the lampin?" Especially those who saw Arthur in it... they tried hard but they just couldn't find the Snappi or any sort of pins at all...

I have wanted to post this long time ago... initially, I got pictures with Arthur... just when I wanted to upload them... I decided.. No... Not my baby's photos...

Anyway... here's it, step by step:

Assuming you know how to fold the lampin. Lie it down...
Lie baby on the lampin, ensuring that it falls below the waistline
Fold front part up. Note that the front part, when folded, shall be higher than the back...
Tie first knot tightly... leaving a flap... just not to the point where baby is not comfy...
Fold down the flap and tie the second knot.. this knot shall be tighter than the first
Voila! Trendy yet secure low waisted lampin

thanks for sharing... this is not a difficult method but may I know what size is the lampin? My dd's lampin seems all too short to even fold them up and it's imppossib;e to tie like that...

Any time, Sharine.. the lampin is the biggest size available in the market. I've got the Anakku ones. I do have some smaller ones that I tie this way, too but it's just a little more difficult. It's possible, though ;)

Just to add... tying it low waisted is the key to success here ;)

Hi Jess,

a bit late this comment - but i must say a BIG THANK YOU to this idea it's fantastic!!!
I use this method ALL the time now (I try to use cloth when at home as I don't have enough modern CDs with me for outside use, and also at night..) and it's just .. well, fantabulous.. serious, i had so much trouble with the snappy thingies, and those pins..
