Toddler Double Sling Shoulder to Shoulder (DSS2S)
with LaKeta of Tandem Trouble
NOTE: Double Sling Shoulder to Shoulder (DSS2S) used to be called Double Rebozo Shoulder to Shoulder (DRS2S). They are the same carry. The name has been changed out of respect for the true meaning of the word ‘rebozo’ which belongs to Mesoamerican culture and had become blurred in the terminology of popular woven wrapping.

step by step photo tutorial
Step 1. With the wrap over baby’s back, bring one end over your shoulder and the other end under the opposite arm.
Step 2. The wrap end coming under your arm crosses over the other wrap end and then you tuck it between your knees to hold. Take the end that came over your shoulder and bring it up over the opposite shoulder.
Step 3. Bring the warp across baby or toddler from over your shoulder to under your opposite arm without going under baby’s leg. This makes a second Traditional Sling Pass (TSP) over your baby. When it comes under your arm, bring it up under the shoulder strap on the same side.
Step 4. Hold on to each wrap end and pull to take any slack out of the wrap.
TUB (tied under bottom) finish: Bring both ends behind your back to tie under baby’s bottom.
TIF (tied in front) finish: cross the wrap under baby’s bottom instead of tying by handing each end to your opposite hand and bring back under baby’s legs to tie in front at your waist (see photo in the rainbow wrap below).
TAS (tied at shoulder) finish: bring the long wrap end under your arm to the back, run it behind baby’s knees, and bring under the opposite arm where you can tie it to the short end in a double knot at your shoulder.
TIF (tied in front) finish: the standard way to do DSS2S is to cross under baby’s bottom , bring under baby’s legs to the front and tie in a square knot or double knot.
