COTW #35- Wendy's Double Hammock

by Aline Kelly

Wendy's Double Hammock is a great hybrid back carry - in terms of passes it is similar to Christina's Ruckless Back Carry, but it has a spread chest pass like a Double Hammock, has ruck straps, and finishes at shoulder. This carry can be tied with a size 4 or 5 woven wrap, generally a size down from what you would use to tie a normal Double Hammock. 

General instructions:
- This carry starts off-center. Drape your wrap over your shoulder so that it hangs to around your waist or your hip. Where the wrap crosses your back is where you will center baby. 
- Get baby on your back using your preferred method and create a deep seat from knee to knee. The first tail will stay over your shoulder and the second tail will come under the opposite arm. 
- Taking the tail coming under your arm, spread it wide across your chest, bring it under the opposite arm, spread it across baby's back and bum, and tuck it under baby's opposite knee. 
- Continuing with this same tail - flip it up and over your same shoulder, spread it across baby's back and bum, and bring it under baby's opposite knee. 
- Tie at shoulder, tie a candy cane chest belt, or do a knotless finish (video instructions below).

  1. Prime Garden 9' Double Hammock with Stand from Bizarkdeal

    When I revived my new hammock, I knew instantly that I HAD to write a review. I had to tell the world just how amazing it is. It's not only gorgeous but so extremely comfortable and durable. It help my friend and I with ease. The ropes are strong and sturdy and all of the hardware was well made and flawless.

    The bed measures 78 x 54 inches with a total length of 118 inches. It can hold two adults very comfortably. It even included a carrying case. The material of the hammock is so soft and so extremely relaxing to lay in and watch the kids plan and get a nice sun tan. It's top quality when it comes to durability and comfort. Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this hammock to anyone who needs a little relaxation and getaway in their own backyard. Not to mention it just looks awesome in your yard! It really is so comfortable, almost like floating in a cloud. Great hammock!!!!
