Inoshi Get Going Guide - Ruck Back Carry with a Chest Knot

> Home   > Inoshi   > All About the Inoshi   > Inoshi Get Going Guide

A Ruck back carry would be the simplest back carry.  It has a single layer pass over baby, with the tails over your shoulders and either tied under baby's bottom, or tied at your front.  A Ruck can have many different tail finishes and can also be double/tripled passed over baby for extra support.

This version of the Ruck incorporates a chest knot.  A chest knot is helpful to stop the tails from slipping off your shoulders.  The knot should sit on your chest bone and NOT near your neck.  A chest knot finish is great for guys, but can be a bit cumbersome for large chested women.  The Ruck with a Chest Knot is the main back carry included in our Get Going Guide as it was the carry used for testing - which was on a smooth armless torso - hence the chest knot finish was used to limit the carrier from slipping off the dummies shoulders during testing.

We recommend back carries are attempted only once:


Compared to a front or hip carry, we have reduced visibility of our baby on our back, making it more difficult to position & monitor them properly.  Having experience in front or hip carries gives us more confidence and knowledge in positioning & monitoring our baby in back carries.

When your BABY can SIT UNASSISTED When babies support themselves in a seated position WITHOUT external structures, their torso/breathing systems have reached a key development milestone.  Due to reduced visibility, it’s better for them to have stronger neck/head strength so they can manoeuvre themselves to keep their own airways clear.
