When I was pregnant I decided that Baby Wearing was definitely something that I wanted to do. Sometimes a pushchair just isn’t convenient, plus it’s a good excuse for cwtches and helps with bonding.
Despite knowing that I wanted to baby wear I had absolutely no idea what to buy. After researching and reading several blog posts I decided that I wanted a wrap, most of the brands that I looked into were pretty much the same and around the same price. I eventually settled on a KangaWrap purely because all of the profits help maternity care in Dehli slums.
The first time I used the wrap it took me a while to figure out how to put it on, thankfully there is a video guide on their website which is very easy to follow, a lot easier than trying to figure it out from the written instructions. Now that I’ve used it a few times putting it on is simple.
Aria is a very independent baby so she isn’t the greatest fan of the wrap when I first put her in, but as soon as I start walking she is happy and usually ends up cwtching in and falling asleep.
As well as pulling the fabric right over the baby like I have here with Aria you can just fold it up and cover their bum area with it so that their feet can dangle free, perfect for warmer days.
The wrap is huge which means that pretty much most shapes and sizes would be able to use it. The material is very soft and stretchy so you don’t have to worry about it irritating your baby’s delicate skin.
The KangaWrap is suitable from birth weight to 15kg and complies with British standards.
