The Rebozo Hip Carry is a poppable basic hip carry that utilizes the slipknot we learned earlier this month. This carry uses a short wrap and consists of a rebozo pass tied at the shoulder. Because this carry uses a shorter wrap, if you have a size 2 or 3, you can keep it in your car or roll up and put in your diaper bag for a quick carry out and about. Unlike the Simple Hip Carry, the Rebozo is adjustable because of the slipknot, so you can use it for quick ups and downs while still getting it nice and tight. Rebozo is great for nursing since you can loosen the slipknot, but may not be suited for babies who like to straighten their legs. You can also do a tummy-to-tummy position in a Rebozo carry following the same techniques.

How to tie a slipknot
- You can spread the fabric over your shoulder for comfort if you prefer.
- In addition to sliding the slipknot up to tighten, you can also tighten the top or bottom rail by pulling on the corresponding rail in the tail of the slipknot. (Demonstrated in the second tutorial video)
