Back to the overview
Double Cross Carry as a clip:
Find the midpoint of your baby sling, gather it behind your back and loop it around your waist.
Cross the sling strands in front of your chest. Make sure that they are not twisted.
Form a second cross on your back.
Now, lead the strands back to your front and tie them loosely.
Grab into the fabric cross, push it downwards towards your navel.
Then, bring your baby into play.
Let your baby slide over your shoulder, feet first, onto the fabric cross. Get the feet by taking hold of them through the fabric strands.
Your baby is sitting in the anatomically correct spread-squat position on the fabric cross, the strands are under the hollow of its knees.
Now, first fan out the fabric of the lower strand and over the back of your baby. Then, repeat the process with the upper strand. (If necessary, you can fan out the strands over your baby’s head to support it optimally).
Grab the loosely knot under the baby’s bum.
Tighten the straps strand by strand, starting at the top edge. Grab a few times into the fabric and work your way to the bottom side. Meanwhile, fix the free cloth strand between your knees.
Knot the strands under tension under the baby’s bum.
Now, put your baby into a squat position by gently pushing its lower legs upwards.
This is what the Double Cross Carry looks like from behind.
