Anatomy of a Carry – Part 3 – Traditional Back Pass (Hammock Pass)

A hammock pass goes over one shoulder of the wearer and under the other arm.

This pass:

  • places pressure diagonally across baby’s back and this result in an uneven pressure.
  • the seat is held up by one pass.
  • means that the position of the baby can be altered as you place this pass when this pass is used as a second pass.
  • is the first and second pass in a Double Hammock carry.
  • can also be guided to be bunched under baby’s leg and then under the wearer’s arm.  This way the rebozo pass changes into a cross pass.  This is often seen in multilayer back carries.
