This carry distributes most of your baby's weight to your torso and lower body.
Torso Carry With Shoulder Support
First place baby on your back and pull the blanket straight - see the rucksack carry instructions for how to do this.
Cross the straps with a half knot.
Toss one strap over your shoulder (or for a torso carry simply bring the straps back behind) then cross over over or over under your baby's legs and tuck the strap between your knees, then repeat for the other side. Check your baby has a good seat (straps under knees and knees higher than bum).
Back view - straps crossed over then over baby's legs again. (Ideally the blanket should be more centred than in the photo).
Back view - straps crossed over then under baby's legs.
Variation: Back Wrap Cross Carry
Instead of tying the strap in the half knot across your chest bring each strap over the opposite shoulder and finish off as you prefer.
I love to sew. I have five curious and active kids who keep me busy!
