Carry of the Month: Maxine’s Back Carry

Leave a comment

Please read our disclaimer before trying this carry.
This month’s carry of the month is Maxine’s Back Carry! It is extra cool because one of our own ABEs, Brittany, made the carry up herself to keep her seat popping toddler in place. Here is how to do it!
You will start the wrap way off center so that the short tail hangs about to the middle of your hip and shoulders. Basically enough to make a candy cane chest belt.
Get baby on your back. Pin the wrap under your chin or in your teeth, then make a seat that is spread knee to knee. This makes a hammock for kiddo to sit in.
Gather and tighten the short side of the wrap and then pin it under your chin.Working with the long side now, tighten then bring the bunched pass over both legs.
Bring the bunched pass in front of you to make a waist belt. Then, spread that pass over your back
Pull it tight. Be sure to pull all the slack out through the waist belt.
Carefully bring that pass under your arm and give it one last tug to tighten.
Now do a candy cane chest belt!
I finish mine by bringing one tail through the ruck strap then I tie a single knot. You can also finish with a sling ring or however else you would like to finish your CCCB.
And that’s it! You did it! 
We hope this helped and please do not be afraid to ask questions! You can email questions to our Education chair at Education (at) BabywearingHamptonRoads (dot) Org any time.
