Well, thanks spiralmg for the inspiration to get DS on my back with my wrap. I've done it twice before, but I've always had help. I've been sort of intimidated by the idea/procrastinating/telling myself I want to get a MT 'cuz it will be easier, etc. Anyway, reading Linda's advice in another post this morning I decided to just go for it. IT WORKED! I was able to wrap him up on my own... it took a while, but the front wrap used to take a while, too, and now it's a snap... so I think with practice this will get easier. Anyway, DS was happy in there for about 30 minutes, and then wanted to nurse (which he can do if he's on my front). I got a few pics just because I was so excited. They're a bit funky because I'm taking them in a mirror...

We did it!
A bit blurry but I was trying to get a good back view...
Can we go, mama?

Yay Jeanne! You're an inspiration to me. I've done the back carry with the onbu and podaegi, but I haven't worked up the courage to try it with my homemade org. jersey wrap. Thanks for posting those great pix!

My thoughts exactly.

Well, now that I've inspired you you've totally inspired me too. I have not mastered the wrap back carry, but just received a gorgeous blue Didymos from a friend...so let's see if I can figure it out too!

Hey, I just picked up a blue Didy on TBW. Maybe we can be "twinkies" and help each other out on Monday! PM me and we can firm up plans.
