One of the things that I never did with my son when he was a baby was put him in a carrier or use a sling for baby wearing. But that all changed when little Sadee-cakes came along.
Now I am one proud baby wearing mama and thanks to Wrapy I have the perfect baby sling wrap for toting Sadee around.
I understand that not everyone can get with wearing their baby, but here are my top 5 reasons why I love it, particularly with the Wrapy Baby Sling Carrier!
1 – The Wrapy Baby Sling Carrier is super comfortable for both mom and baby. One of the things I don’t really care for in a regular baby carrier is that the straps tend to be right where I don’t want them and oftentimes hit my baby’s face in the wrong place, or her arm rubs up against them. With a sling like Wrapy’s, I don’t have that problem. The sling is 95% cotton and 5% spandex, so it’s very soft and there’s nothing cutting into my baby’s skin anywhere.
2 – One size fits ALL! Yes, with the Wrapy Baby Sling Carrier there’s no worry about how big/small you are because it fits everyone. I’ll tell you, I’m a plus size girl and fit is always a worry of mine. I mean, I am wearing my baby so I have to make sure the sling fits me to be able to comfortably and properly carry her. I had absolutely no problem putting this sling on and even had extra material left when I tied it at the end.
3 – The Wrapy Baby Sling Carrier is easy to wash. I toss the sling right into the regular wash and even into the dryer, and I’m good to go. This is always a plus because we all know babies can be pretty messy sometimes – a little spit up here, some teething drool there – so an easy cleanup is awesome.
4 – There are 4 different positions in which you can wear your baby with the Wrapy Baby Sling Carrier – hug hold for newborn, hug hold for toddler (what I use now), cradle hold (great for nursing) and lotus hold (baby faces outward). Who knew you could wear a baby so many ways?
5 – And last, but not least – little Sadee is always close. There is nothing like the feel of your baby close to you all the time. Well, okay, I get it. You probably don’t want them around all the time, but you better get as much cuddle time as you can while they’re little because it won’t be long until they’re little monsters running a muck everywhere you go – I know, I have one of those too. Not only is it a good feeling to have Sadee close to me all the time, but it’s very comforting to her. No lie, every single time I wear her in our Wrapy Baby Sling Carrier she falls asleep. I had to be sure to get some pictures in during our walk at the park before she fell asleep because I knew it was only a matter of time. That’s all the proof I need at how comforting the sling is.
So parents, sling on and wear your baby proud. And dad’s, the Wrapy Baby Sling Carrier isn’t just for moms. You’re just as much able to wear your baby and it gives you much more bonding time than if you didn’t, especially if mom is nursing.
I nurse Sadee and love having so much time with her, nursing or wearing, but I know daddy wants some love too and baby wearing is the perfect experience for some daddy/baby bonding.
