Arrrrgh matey! This is probably one of the carries we use the most. It's fairly quick, supportive, and useful with a short wrap. This demonstration is with a size 3 wrap, it can also be done with a size 2 and finished with a rebozo knot. This variation is finished with a candy cane chest belt (CCCB).

Okay, this one is a little more challenging! When I finally learned this carry it opened a whole new world to me. This is a super supportive shorty carry. I always keep a set of sling rings in my diaper bag just in case. We actually had to use this carry on a 3 day backpacking trip because E was FED UP with the frame pack we were using. I had packed an emergency shorty and rings and thank goodness I did! It would have been a loooooong hike without the extra support I was able to get from DHDR.
Our first tutorial! Now don't be disappointed that it's just a simple ruck. Getting this carry down pat is a great foundation for all other back carries. It especially takes practice to get a good deep seat and a nice high baby. I suggest trying this over a bed or couch until you feel really comfortable. Happy wrapping!
