This is a new carry that has been making the rounds on babywearing forums this summer. When completed it gives the look of a mermaid shell bra in the front. It's a fun carry rather than a strictly functional one! This carry requires a long wrap, usually a size 6 or 7, and one sling ring.
- Get baby onto your back, create a seat, and bring both tails under your arms.
- Loop both tails through one sling ring at the center of your chest.
- Bring one tail back under your arm, spread it across baby's back and bum, and bring it up over the opposite shoulder. Repeat on the other side.
- Tie under bum.
- Adjust boobs as necessary!
