short cross carryDay 4 of Crunchy Mama’s 30 Day Wrap Challenge was the Short Cross Carry.  This was a new carry for us.  I like that it can be done with a shorter wrap, and it is a quick wrap so it makes it easy to do in the parking lot right before heading into a store.  Plus, it is a a carry that you can tie ahead of time and take your baby in and out of, so it is nice for running errands.

I had a hard time getting it tight enough at first.  The position of the knot on the side made it difficult for me to untie, tighten and retie.  Instead, I practiced getting the wrap right from the beginning so I didn’t have a lot of adjustment.   The area on the back where the wrap loops through itself creates a bit knot of fabric, and that was uncomfortable on my back when I sat down.  But it was a great carry while I was up moving around.  This is one we’ll add to the repertoire.

I used a size 4 Didymos Emerald Turquoise Hemp Indio for this.
