Sleepy Wrap…

Yesterday I caught up with a very dear friend who is having her 3rd baby in the very near future. When we were chatting to arrange the lunch date she asked me if I used the Ergo Baby with H as she had heard and seen very good things about it and was thinking about possibly getting it for this baby. I used a Baby Bjorn (as did she with her previous 2) but I said I would more than likely get an Ergo if we have another as I too have heard and read very good things about them. They look very cosy and I think you would get longer use out of them than the Baby Bjorn.

I found the Bjorn excellent but once H hit the 9+ kg mark he was just too heavy for it and within 10 minutes of him being in it I would have a headache from the stress it put on my shoulder muscles… so I had to stop using it. From what I have seen of the Ergo Baby this is less of an issue and many people have used their Ergo baby up until their little one is 2.

The other great item I have and still use is a Sleepy Wrap. The Sleepy wrap is also know as the Boba BabyWrap…it is a one size fits all wrap so it’s easy for both parents to use without any adjustments…it has many different carrying positions from birth through to 18 months.

I took the Sleepy Wrap over to show my friend yesterday and she thought it was great and also something she would use with her little one.

In my experience of the sleepy wrap it is not as tricky as it looks to tie (practice makes perfect) and it distributes the weight evenly. When I put H into the wrap now there is no pressure on my shoulders or back…he is cosy and I am comfortable – WIN/WIN!!

I don’t have a recent photo of H and I using the wrap but I have one from when he was little and another from when he was 7 months old…

There are many instructional videos on YouTube demonstrating the different ways to carry the baby…here is the one for the newborn hold…

I think these make great gifts for parents to be so if you are interested in the Sleepy Wrap you can find them here and here.

There are many wraps out there which I am sure are just as effective. I have only had experience with the sleepy wrap so am writing from my own personal experience…

If you have used one before or similar I would love to hear your thoughts…
Do you know anyone who has used one and what they thought of them?…
Do you think you would use one when your time comes?…
