Wraps are a piece of cloth from about 2.7 to 5.6 meters long and 25-30" wide designed specifically to be worn as a baby carrier. Wraps can be used to wear baby on your front, hip or back and are excellent for newborns all the way up to toddlers. These beautiful carriers come in an unending variety of colors and designs. Many are made with cotton and some blend cotton with linen, wool, Tencel, Repreve, hemp, bamboo, silk, cashmere and other fibers. If I could only have one baby carrier it would be a wrap because of the incredible versatility of ways to wear the wrap, support, style, and infinite adjustability to myself, my husband, and my little ones.
There are many ways to tie a wrap, called a carry, and there is a learning curve to using them. Don’t be intimidated – start by learning one front carry (I recommend front wrap cross carry) and practice for a week or so until you have it down before moving on to another carry. Soon you'll wonder how you lived without it!
Wraps can be woven, a stretchy knit fabric or cotton gauze. We sell mostly woven wraps because of their comfort and support but the Wrapsody Stretch Hybrid is the only stretchy wrap we love enough to sell because it is made differently and more supportive. Wrapsody cotton gauze wraps are excellent for hot weather and babies up to about 20 pounds.
