If you’ve ever worn two children at once- you’ll have noticed that it’s not the easiest babywearing task out there. Sometimes a tweak can make it better. If you’re doing it either in a half-buckle carrier with the front child in the crosses formed by a tibetan tie-off; or in a wrap with the child on the back in a ruck or BWCC and the front child in the tibetan tie-off: here’s a tip.
Normally when we make the tibetan tie-off, we thread the wrap through the shoulder strap from the inside of the strap. I discovered that if it’s done from the outside of the strap as in the photo below, there’s more tension on the wrap and the baby in front is less likely to sag down uncomfortably.
Obviously this carry is best suited to older children, as you can see from this photo, but sometimes when you’re parenting multiple small children at once a tweak makes life much easier.
Credit where it’s due: this idea came from the rather fantastic tibetan plait tie-off tutorial you’ll find here.
