Information about the - Giselles Back Carry tied at shoulder

  • Age: from sitting age
  • Sling size: from size 5 - 420 cm

This back carrying method is the perfect one for children who like to stretch quite often. Several layers of cloth just as a leg pass fix the pouch optimally. Here, the knot is fixed at one side. Depending on the surface weight of the wrap you can finish with a flat or a decorative slip knot.

+ A hip belt discharges your back. The thoracic region is omitted, so nothing is pressing uncomfortably.
- You need to be an advanced baby wearer to use this wrapping technique. Your baby should have advanced experiences in back carrying as well.

Step-by-step:

Step 1

Start with a moved midpoint of your Fidella® baby wrap (off-center).

Step 2

Create a pouch around your child. Hold the strands on its breast bone height close to your body.

Step 3

Secure your baby onto your forearm. Its legs face to the side, both strands are in front of your belly.

Step 4

Bring your child onto your back.

Step 5

Tilt a little bit forwards and split the strands. Put one strand over your head onto your second shoulder.

Step 6

Arrange the cloth - the inner edge at the neck and the outer edge along the bottom of your child.

Step 7

Create the stirrup by pushing the cloth between the legs of your child (spread-squat-position).

Step 8

Tighten strand by strand, the short and the long one.

Step 9

Bring the long strand to your back across the leg of your child.

Step 10

Fan out the fabric across the back of your child.

Step 11

Now, the fabric runs underneath the other leg of your child.

Step 12

Bring the longer strand around your hip forwards again (underneath the short strand).

Step 13

Now, the strand is under the other leg of your child.

Step 14

Fan out the fabric across the back of your child diagonally, so that the end comes up over your shoulder.

Step 15

Both strands end over one shoulder now.

Step 16

Fix the longer strand between your knees and bring the shorter one underneath your arm.

Step 17

Tighten the horizontal strand.

Step 18

Fix the strands with a knot at your shoulder.
