Please read our disclaimer before trying this carry.
So it’s been a while since Carmen and I have been wrapping. She’s getting close to three and a half years old now and the wraps have been in the closet for a while. But when I started thinking about what carry to present for February, I remembered how much I loved Christina’s Ruckless when I first started wrapping. It was just one of those carries that made me feel kind of fancy and really helped me branch out into more advanced carries.
I wore this often in a size 5 wrap shown here about 2 years ago. I wear a size 8/10 dress and a medium shirt. This wrap can start right in the center if you use your base size like a size 6 or longer but if you are using a shorter wrap, you may have to put it a little off center. This may take some practicing.
This carry also creates a lovely chest belt and is really a cross of a double hammock and a BWCC. It has the chest pass of a double hammock and a shoulder pass similar to BWCC. Considering we’ve done both carries, this should be a total breeze for you. If you try it a couple of times and notice baby is hanging out a bit lower than normal, that’s normal. So be careful with infants 0-3 months who should stay up closer to your neck and shoulders.
