Beginning to Back Carry with a Woven

About / description

Learn how to get your baby safely onto your back with a long woven wrap and a simple rucksack carry.
We shall learn with dolls first and then your babies. We will usually practice a few methods of how to get your baby on your back safely in the wrap and you can try with your own child when you feel happy. If the class is going well, we may have time to demonstrate more complex carries such as the double hammock.

Suitable for those who are confident with using a woven wrap on the front, and babies of 12 weeks upwards.

£20 per person, 2hrs long.

If you have a younger baby and wish to learn back carries with them in a woven wrap, a 1-2-1 may be more suitable.


Learn how to get your baby on your back in a long woven wrap and down again. Be able to do a rucksack carry on your own, safely and confidently.


We expect that you will be confident with front carries with your long woven wrap. You do not need to have tried back carries before.
