Very safe, but be sure you’re using a woven wrap rather than a stretchy wrap like a Moby or Sleepy Wrap.

it looks like you did not start with the middle of the fabric right in the middle of your babies back. How offset is it?

Just a little, like you would with a regular double hammock carry. I usually go about a foot down the wrap from the middle marker.

I have a woven wrap, size 5.2 and tried high back tibetan tie… It didn’t work out well. I tried to figure out other ways until i ran across this. Thank you for sharing!

I can NOT get any of the back carries down. My son is 9 months old and I have tried since he was born. When I get him on my back, he pushes off, even when I lean forward, so that he’s in a sitting position…almost like he’s riding a horse and I can’t pull the strap tight enough to get him to relax with his belly against mine. Any tips?

CosyBabyHappyMommy’s channel has a “wiggle-proof back carry” video that helped me! It is the only back carry I can use with my 12 month old… and I’ve been trying out different carries for months now! I hope that helps. (I tried to cut and paste a link, but it won’t let me.)

Yeah that’s what I was thinking. My baby would have never sat there like that. Thanks for sharing.

so… can i use this position on the moby wrap?? cause im thinking on buy one, but the instruction doesnt show how to do the back wrap.

No, you cannot do back carries with a stretchy wrap like a Moby. You need a woven wrap for back carries.

Loved the video. I can’t wait to try this carry out with my Easycare when my little man wakes up from his nap.

What’s the diference between woven and stretchy? My wrap is made of 63% Poliéster e 27% Viscosem can I carry my baby on my back?

You should be able to feel the difference. A stretchy wrap feels like a t-shirt – it will stretch easily several inches when you pull on the material. A woven wrap feels like trying to pull on a piece of cavas – no (or very, very little) give.

just curious to know why shouldn’t we do back carries with stretchy wraps? i was thinking about buying the moby wrap. which one do you recommend instead?

magic10628 @ 7:49 pm #

A stretchy wrap like the Moby allows too much flexibility for the baby to throw him or herself backward. If he’s determined enough, he could stretch the wrap enough to fall out. In a front carry, you would see and easily catch him. In a back carry, you might not notice or might not be able to grab him easily. Woven wraps are the way to go for back carries. There are many brands. Dolcinos, Didymos and BBslens are easy to find. :)

Thanks for sharing. What size wrap are you using? Would you be able to do this with a size 5 wrap? Your baby is such a chilled little munchkin!

magic10628 @ 7:41 am #

That wrap is a 6 – you’d probably need a 6 or longer, depending on your size. Since making this video I’ve also come to love the Double Hammock Tied At Shoulder, which you can definitely do with a 5.

You shouldn’t do a back carry with a stretchy wrap because they aren’t secure enough to safely wear baby on your back. They loosen more in time and the baby could fall out.

Really unclear for new woven wrap wearers due to the lack of instruction. I tried to follow, but ended up making up my own way to wear my baby because it was too confusing.

Thanks for the review. This isn’t a good beginner’s carry. I highly recommend beginning with a Back Wrap Cross Carry or a ruck.
