What is a Baby Wrap

A baby wrap is what helps parents cuddle their little one in a simple and hands-free way - just put a wrap on and get your kid in. As soon as you do it, you’ll be able to walk, do household chores or have a rest with a peace of mind regarding your child. We also feel the need to mention that slings are mainly made of cotton, spandex, polyester or other dense fabric that ensures their long service life, therefore, it’s possible to use them for newborns as well as for toddlers. What is more, the majority of modern wraps are designed so as to give nursing mothers the chance to breastfeed their babies secretly. Thanks to the great variety of models available for sale, any parent will be able to find a suitable one to spend time with his/her kid.

To have all necessary things for baby care close at hand, consider diaper bags. And special carriers will come in handy if you want to travel with your kid when he/she grows up a bit.

Boba BW1-017-Star

Safety First

Are you looking for a comfortable and safe baby wrap? If so, Boba model is definitely the best choice. Made of cotton and spandex, it features great stretching properties that simplify its usage. This very feature extends the wrap’s service life too, you can start using it with your newborn (even preemies can be put there) and finish when your kid weighs 35 pounds (or is approximately 18 months old). Although it might seem difficult to put it on at first, the instructional video will help you find out how to do it fast. Moreover, there are no rings and buckles, so you’ll be able to adjust the wrap for your and your kid’s comfort in mere seconds.

One more advantage of this model is simple and hassle-free maintenance. By this, we mean that the wrap is machine washable so you won’t spend much time on its cleaning. Finally, we would like to point out that all Boba products are absolutely safe to use, and all the components are compliant with Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act and tested by the third party (SGS). 

Perhaps, every nursing mom has faced the situation when she has to leave her child for a while and doesn’t have a chance to return before meal time. In this case, breast pumps are must-have items to have at home.

Baby Womb World Perfect Carrier

Wrap for Maximum Intimacy

It goes without saying that a newborn baby has a crying need for spending as much time with parents as possible. Being close to them, hearing their heartbeat, feeling them breathing, enjoying their warmth, and seeing them any time he/she wants makes an infant calm and happy. If you want your little one to experience these pleasant emotions, it's time to choose BabyWombWorld model. The wrap is made of cotton and spandex that create one layer of breathable fabric to provide comfortable use for both you and your kid. Same as other ring slings, BabyWombWorld model features single size and is adjustable to your body due to the ring itself and a narrow strap. Although putting the sling on and adjusting it seems effortless, it’s better to watch the instructional video first. And remember: no matter how firm and reliable your sling is, you don’t want to carry your little one there if you feel sick as his/her safety depends on you.

As soon as your kid is curious enough to entertain him/herself, a baby bouncer will come of great use. Not only will your child be pleased to spend time there, but you’ll also get a chance to drink a cup of tea and just relax.

Mamaway Rainbow Crayon

Created for Your Peace of Mind

Just like most baby wraps, Mamaway model is aimed at giving young parents a possibility to spend more time with their little one. A well-thought design of this sling allows you to place your kid inside snugly and carry him/her for extended periods of time thanks to even weight distribution over your shoulders and back. Don’t overlook the type of this model that is a ring sling. Made of nylon, the ring guarantees hassle-free adjustment to your body and reliable position for as long as you need to carry your baby. Weight limit of this model is worth mentioning too. The wrap withstands up to 110 pounds, and this very feature makes it suitable even for 2-3-year-old toddlers. Additionally, 100% cotton provides great air circulation so your baby will be breathing freely even during the hottest summer days. Lastly, we would like to mention the pocket design of this wrap that means it can be folded easily and stored or transported as a small bag. 

It might be difficult to carry your little one in a wrap all the time. That’s why we recommend you to consider best-selling strollers that might be more convenient for a long-distance walk.
