Putting on the pouch sling

How one folds the pouch and how one puts on the pouch is probably one of the most important in using the pouch.

To a totally new babywearer, the pouch would be the simplest to learn. However, I have found that "folding into half lengthwise" is not as easy as it sounds.

Surprising as it may sound, many users of the pouch sling fold the sling incorrectly, where no 'pouch' in formed at all. As a result, the sling is worn all bunched up and the weight taking a toll on the wearers (usually neck) as they use the sling without a 'pouch'.

In my attempt to reduce this from happening, I have tried some detailed photos of this particular step. Below is also a video trying to help:
