    * while you can do Shepherd’s with base -3 (or sometimes even base -4), it is helpful to have a slightly longer wrap so you can hold the short end between your knees while wrapping. That is what I do in the photo tutorial below using a size 4 wrap which is base -2 for me.

                      Make sure your wrap job is secure and baby is well positioned and you’re ready to go 🙂

                      Pick out a wrap and start wrapping!

                      Shepherd’s Back Carry is a fantastic for long-lasting comfort with a shorter wrap:

                      • can be a high back carry
                      • 2 layers over baby
                      • comfortable torso pass for best weight distribution
                      • keeps weight and pressure off your shoulders
                      • more comfortable than rucksack straps
                      • secure shoulder straps can’t slide off shoulders
                      • use a short wrap (base -2 or base -3)
                      • great for Summer
                      • flattering profile with no waist pass

                      If it was up to me, Shepherds Carry would be called Short Double Hammock Carry because it’s really just a Double Hammock that ends early. Whatever it is, it’s really great and I think you’re going to love it!
