Poppin’s Hip Carry Video Tutorial

The first carry that I was able to successfully nurse in, using a woven wrap was the Poppin’s Hip Carry. I also think it’s a very pretty carry and has therefore become a favorite of mine. The classic Poppin’s Hip Carry is tied under the baby’s bum but for aesthetic reasons and because I feel I can get it just a bit more secure, I prefer to tie it in the back, as in behind my back. A Poppin’s Hip Carry can really be done with any size woven wrap depending on the size of mom and the size of baby. I learned this carry using my base size of a 5 and I found it easier to learn to do with a larger wrap. Once I got the hang of it, I have done it in a longer size 2 and in a size 3 comfortably. The baby still needs seat support from knee to knee in this carry as with any carry so when making your seat please keep the gentle M position in mind. Also keep in mind for nursing you may want to keep baby just a bit lower than “close enough to kiss” once baby has finished nursing you can undo the 2nd knot in your double knot and tighten up a bit to raise baby back up. I tend to just wear baby a tad low just enough to nurse in this carry. Nursing in any carry, especially a woven wrap takes a lot of practice, I still do not feel as tho I have completely mastered it. Below is my video tutorial for Poppin’s Hip Carry tied in back.
