Why a torso carry?
-Feels lighter and cooler for warm months
-Take pressure off your shoulders for those with shoulder issues
-Allows for flexibility if you're tired from carrying your child for long periods of time
How to do it:
-Put baby on your back
-Lift straps into the air to reduce slack
-Pin one strap between your knees
-Take the other strap under your shoulder and across your body, tightening across your body
-Do the same on the other side, with the strap under your shoulder
-One at a time, spread the passes across your child's torso behind you. Check to be sure you aren't lifing too high - you don't want to cover their face by mistake =)
-Spread the passes and tighten. Do the same with the other strap
-Spread and tighten again
-Tie a double knot - or use rings!
