TULA Back Carry

TULA recommends this wearing method for children over 12 months old. As babies get heavier, wearing them on the back is more comfortable for the wearer. It is a great position for children as they can see more. If your child is very small, you can choose to put the hip belt higher, all the way on your waist. This will provide a better “over the shoulder” view for your child.

 

Back 1

1. Secure the waist belt by fastening the buckle. Tighten the waist belt by pulling on the adjustable strap. The carrier’s panel should be centered to the back of your body. Slip the strap over one arm.
Back 2
2. Place your child on your hip. Use the arm that is free from the strap to rotate your child from the hip position into the carrier. (Please have someone assist you until you are comfortable to perform this step on your own.)
Back 3

3. While your child is rotated from the hip position into the carrier, use your other arm to secure the child. Slightly lean forward so that your child is resting their weight on your back.

4. Pull the panel up with your free arm and slip your arm through the other strap like you are wearing a back pack.

Tip for the TULA Back Carry:

If the panel of the carrier scrunches up on the back of your baby, please loosen up one of the shoulder straps and pull it up. Adjust. Do the same with the other strap. Here is a video that demonstrates this:
