5 ★ – Very soft and long!
My first impression of this is as we took it out of it’s carry bag was how soft it was. I guess we shouldn’t be suprised, who would make an uncomfortable baby wrap???
This is made out of 95% cotton and 5% spandex, so you know it’s super soft. With just enough give so that you can pull it tight while wrapping it around yourself.
I like that you can wash AND dry it in the machines instead of handwashing, my husband and I just found out his nice was pregnant and she’s not the type to really hand wash anything now, much less when the baby arrives.
I was a little afraid that it would shrink some because it’s mostly cotton, but after washing and drying it on the low cycles, it wasn’t noticeably smaller at all!
Also, since we didn’t have these when I was prego, I actually had a lot of fun trying to figure out how it went on, and then gave up and ready the manual that you can download. I wanted to send a video to my niece but honestly, I looked absurd.
After playing around with it for about 15 minutes it’s actually a lot easier to use than what I had originally thought and it turns out the problem was me and not the baby wrap. Lol.
It is 202 inches long and can hold a baby up to 36 pounds. So basically you can use this for a long time!!! What better way to keep your baby close while running errands, ew on shopping carts or having to take out the stroller and the car seat… this is a much better alternative. I can see why these are as popular as they are now because had I known about these when I was pregnant??? I would have had one for each day of the week, in ever color, and probably a couple left in my car just in case one got dirty.
I can’t think of one good reason NOT to use this… because this wraps around your back I can see how someone would think it would be too front heavy with a baby. But honestly, carrying the baby one handed in a car seat is way worse. I remember all my trips to the chiropractor for a realignment. This? Better option.
