Hip and Back Carry

Everyone knows I’m an avid babywearer and even if we do Next9 Baby Slings, I have so many types.  I had a nearly a dozen ring slings, a mei tai, a soft structured carrier (Ergo!), a pouch, a wrap!
I remember doing the back carry in a ring sling with K when he was little, but I can’t find it!  Here are some of our pictures doing the back carry in a Mei Tai.  

And yes, I admit I miss these days. 😀
Here is our video to help you wear your baby on your back! 🙂

Front Carry and Side Carry with your Next9 Baby Sling

My favorite carry is the front carry.  I like it because it was easy for me to just lower the sling and let my baby nurse.  I had special slings made for some occasions.  This is one that I had specially made for the 50th birthday party of S’ uncle.  

Looking at it, I realize I should have worn K higher, his butt level to my waist.  And also the rings should be higher (perhaps the shiny fabric rode down my body because it was slippery.  Note to self:  choose better fabric!).

I miss babywearing and I wish I had more pictures to go back to!  But I digress.

One of the first positions you’ll learn with a ring sling is the tummy-to-tummy or the front carry.  This is done with babies from new born till they’re bigger.  You can also put them in the side carry (both legs to one side, using the sling like a hammock) to nurse them.  Claude’s picture HERE shows the side carry.
