Video Tutorial: Single Hammock Hip and Back Carry with a Toddler


I use this carry frequently with my 32lb 23 month old.  It is great for days when she wants to get up and down a lot and I don’t want to carry lots of fabric around with me.  It is a very easy carry to transition between front, hip and back, which is great for indecisive toddlers.  

Elsie tends to like being on my back when we are walking about and looking at things, on my hip when we are chatting with friends and on my front to sleep (although she will mix it up!).  

This is not a wriggle proof, nor a particularly secure back carry.  So it’s safety depends on your technique but also, somewhat, on whether your child wants to be in it and picking up on their cues when they start to get bored or fed up with it. 

I have previously demonstrated how to set up a single hammock carry so I have not repeated that information in this tutorial.  

This video shows how to transition from hip to back with a toddler.  Please let me know what you think.
