COTW #42 - Short Back Cross Carry

by Aline Kelly

Short Back Cross Carry (SBCC) is a wiggleproof back carry that is tied with a short woven wrap, usually a size 2, 3, or 4. It is very similar to a half-JBC, but with symmetrical legs, so fans of that carry may like this one as well.  

General instructions:
- Your wrap starts off-center. Drape it over your shoulder so that it hangs to around your waist. Where the wrap crosses your spine is where you will center baby. 
- Get baby onto your back using your preferred method and create a good seat. The short end of the wrap comes over your shoulder, the long end comes under baby's knee.
- Flip the long end up and over your shoulder, spread it across baby's back and bum, and tuck it under his opposite knee. 
- Bring the tails together and tie at shoulder, tie a candy cane chest belt, or do a knotless finish.
