Every month we feature a carry or carrier to highlight at our monthly meetings and online (“BWITCCOTM” stands for Babywearing International of the Twin Cities Carry or Carrier of the Month).

The pair are outside on a sunny day standing in front of light pink cherry blossoms. On the right of the graphic is text in white over a bright pink background with whimsical floral cut-outs.

A “pre-tied” carry is often referred to as a “poppable” carry since it can be pre-tied and allows the wearer to “pop” a child in and out of a carrier as needed. This kind of carry is convenient for wrapping before you leave the house. It is also handy with children who are up and down and up and down, repeat. Pre-tied carries can be done using a shorter woven wrap or base length.

The following are some tutorials of pre-tied carries:
