|Hilariously uneven tails. This was our first try on our own and second try at this carry, so oh well. But look, baby toes 💗|
I'm sure it has a more technical name than that but that's what the YouTube video is called so that's all I know. I have been lazy/chicken to wrap bug on my back. I wanted to have someone show me to get started, but when I did get help at a babywearing meetup they showed me double hammock which I found really tricky to start with. I didn't feel like I got as much hands-on help as I needed, and I was scared of her falling as we were on a bare concrete floor and no-one really spotted me. So once I got her up I was stressed, sweaty, a mess, and decided I was done with back carries for the day. And then didn't try again for a couple months (oops).

We went to visit a local mama to try out her Pavo Fable wrap recently and she was kind enough to show me this back carry which starts on your front. I was much more comfortable starting bug on my front and scooting her around and this was much easier/quicker than double hammock. It's our new carry to master. Ok, fine, to get proficient at. Let's be real.
I didn't play with Fable as much as I meant to (the mama was kind enough to loan it to us!) but I found it supportive and it really stayed in place. It's a fan favourite for a reason!
