High Back Carry For the Non-flexible Parent

Sometimes when I’m showing someone how to adjust the wrap behind them, I run into this problem that they simply cannot reach as well as I can.  So I had to learn a new way to wrap up a little baby in a high back carry.  A way to do it without reaching high up my back.

Today I experimented with a rucksack.  I found that I could do the entire carry, bringing the straps over and under the legs, while my 7 week old baby was very low on my back.  Then a few bouncing tugs on the tails hiked her up to my neck.  Voila!

I’m so good, I even had it together to make a video!

    Hello! I’m just curious about the baby’s legs in a carry like this, do you ever find that there’s marks on your baby’s legs when carrying her in a rucksack like the video above? Or does having the baby’s bum lower than their knees fix that? Thank you!
