COTW #17- Poppins And Robin's Hip Carries

by Aline Kelly
Poppins and Robin's are hip carries that are tied with a woven wrap. They are very similar to each other and many people often remark that they don't know what the difference is, which is why we are combining them for this COTW. At the end of this week you will all be pros and will be ready to school the rest of the internet on these carries.
Once you're familiar with the carries, the difference can be summed up like this:
Poppins goes UNDER the arm. Robin's goes OVER the arm.
Poppins has an under-arm pass. Robin's does not. 

(There also seems to be some debate about the spelling of Robin. In terms of popular use and Google results, there should be just a single B. Robin's!)

These mamas have each done videos for both carries which may help with comparison.
