Learning to tie a slipknot is key to loving shorties (base size minus 3 and 4 wraps)   Here’s a great slipknot tutorial that shows how to tie a slipknot from over the shoulder. 

Traditional Sling Front or Hip Carry

Traditional sling carry is a fantastic carry.  You can pretie it and pop baby in and out as needed.  You can even leave it tied and have it ready to go.  All you need to do is slip it over your head and pop in baby. 

Traditional Sling Back Carry

Traditional Sling Carry can be tied as a front carry and shifted toward the back (shown in the first video – which done with a ring sling, but it’s the same idea) or tied around baby (shown in the second video).  It’s a comfortable one shouldered back carry.

No Sew Ring Sling

You can also use a pair of sling rings to create a ring sling without any sewing.  This is a nice alternative to traditional sling carry if you don’t like tying slipknots. 

Simple Hip Carry

Simple hip carry is a quick carry that creates almost a pouch sling with a knot in the back and is a great fast option for a hip carry. 

Ruck tied under the Bum

This is a quick one layer back carry that works well with older babies and toddlers. 

Torso Carry

This video gives a great explanation of how to do a torso carry with a short wrap.  It shows how to twist and tuck the rails to have a secure carry without knots.  This is a super comfortable carry and is really nice because there is nothing on your shoulders.  
Once you’ve tried these, check out the Base size minus 3 carries.  You may find you’ll be able to do some of the base size minus 3 carries with your base size minus 2.  You may also find that you can do many of the base size minus 4 carries with a wrap that is your base size minus 5.  If you have a very short wrap, give these a try!
