Information about the - Poppins Double Hammock

  • Age: from walking age
  • Sling size: from size 6 - 460cm

This tying version is inspired by the Poppins Hip Carry. It is a lovely alternative for special occasions or if you prefer a single-shoulder back carrying method.

Initially, tie the basic version of the Double Hammock. Instead of bringing the second shoulder strand over the shoulder, bring it forward underneath your arm, wrap it around the first shoulder strand thus creating the typical Poppins look. Knot it under the baby’s bottom.
