Buckle Tie ~ Back Carry



BACK CARRY: Practice age-appropriate baby wearing!  This carrier is intended for children weighing at least 15lbs., which usually occurs between 3 and 4 months of age.  The top end weight limit is 40 lbs.   

Step 1:  Buckle the bottom waist strap so that it sits on your hipbones.
Step 2:  Put your baby on your hip and scoot him or her around onto your back while leaning forward.  Your back should be parallel with the ground, flat like a table.
Step 3:  Make sure his or her body is centered on your back.
Step 4:  While holding on to your baby with one hand, pull the body of the carrier up between his  or her legs and over his or her back.
Step 5:  Pull the straps straight over your shoulders and do a little hop while you pull on the straps to ensure that your baby/toddler is nestled into the carrier.
Step 6:  Pull the straps over your shoulders and then either cross them in front of your chest (like picture #7) or under you arms like a back pack (picture #8).
Step 7:  Cross the straps over your baby's legs and then under the opposite leg and bring back to the front and tie with a secure double knot.
