How to wrap a baby using a Jordan’s back carry with a sling ring. This carry is for experienced babywearers already comfortable with a regular Jordan’s Back Carry. This video uses a size 6 pavo textiles granite zebra. This carry is great for a wrap that’s one size down from your base size, or 1 size up from what you need for a regular Jordan’s back carry. The sling ring makes the carry more adjustable after wrapping, spreads straps across your shoulders, and doesn’t create pressure points with big hunks of fabric like tying tibetan.
You begin with your baby in the center of your wrap. The first pass is a rebozo, both tails then get threaded through a single sling ring (large works best). The tail coming from under your arm is flipped over the same shoulder, coming back over in a cross pass. The other tail comes under the same shoulder in a horizontal pass (or a reinforcing pass if you want to make it Giselle’s back carry with a ring). Each tail comes over then through the ring, allowing the pressure of the ring to hold the tails in place.
