This carry has a few advantages over FWCC: because it has one less pass over the baby, it is cooler. You can also use a smaller wrap, and the slip knot makes it easy to adjust. Some women are able to nurse in this carry, but I haven’t gotten the hang of it yet!
The only downside I have found so far is that learning to tie a slip knot can be tough. I had to practice several times before getting it right.
After practicing this one just twice, I was comfortable wearing the little one out for about an hour to explore. We were rewarded by finding a gorgeous ancient church to explore.
I am using a Deep Blue and Gold Hemp Indio from Didymos in size 5 for this one (although I think I could easily have used a size 4).
