Maxine’s back carry was a mistake. I started to do a ruck but Max was so upset and sleepy that the carry was way off centered. I was so flustered at that point that I just wrapped the L O N G tail around me a couple times and Maxine instantly fell asleep. The carry kept her in place so well! I use MBC all the time now.
This carry requires base minus one (-1) or longer.
Here is how to do it!
You will start the wrap way off center so that the short tail hangs about to the middle of your hip and shoulders. Basically enough to make a candy cane chest belt.
Get baby on your back. Give them a distraction too…Maxine has a remote here.
Pin the wrap under your chin (or with your teeth if that’s your thing).
Make a seat that is spread knee to knee. Hammock for kiddo to sit in.
Gather and tighten the short side of the wrap. Pin it under your chin.
Working with the long side now, tighten then bring the bunched pass over both legs.
Bring the bunched pass in front of you to make a waist belt.
Now spread that pass over your back
Pull it tight. Be sure to pull all the slack out through the waist belt.
Carefully bring that pass under your arm
Give it one last tug to tighten.
Now do a candy cane chest belt!
I finish mine by bringing one tail through the ruck strap then I tie a single knot.
You can also finish with a sling ring or however else you finish a CCCB.
And that’s it! You did it!
Here is a video tutorial!

What a great idea! Can’t wait to try it out. Thanks mama!
Hi momma, it’s really close to the Giselle’s back carry. Am I wrong ?
This is pretty different from Giselle’s 😊. I actually did a tutorial for Giselle’s a couple months ago for my local BWI chapter!
Many carries are similar and variations though for sure 😊😊😊
