A Torso Back Carry is a supportive back carry that allows both arms to have full range of motion. This carry can be used with basically any size wrap depending on how many layers you use. There are several different ways to tie a Torso Back Carry. The two main ways is a Double Hammock Torso or a Back Wrap Cross Carry Torso. Because it does not have the shoulder passes, it is especially important to strand-by-strand tighten with this carry to keep it tight and remove any slack. This carry will end up being a little bit lower on your back, so always be aware of how baby’s head and neck are positioned. This is a good carry for older babies, and toddlers. It may not be good if you have a leaner or leg straightener.
