I have a confession to make - I'm baby carrying challenged! I don't know what it is but they intimidate me like crazy. Maybe it is all those crunchy Mommas talking about baby wearing until their kids are three or all the crazy names wraps have. When I was offered to Wrapy® review, I thought - why not? I'm so happy I agreed because I've learned so much about baby wrapping and I just *might* understand this whole baby carrying this after all!
My Wrapy® came in a storage bag with an instructional booklet. The wrap itself is one long piece of weighted fabric that has a bit of a give or stretch to it. That's the whole kit and caboodle.
How I Used It:
This is where my story takes a turn to the funny. I honestly have never used anything like this before. I pulled out this fabric that is long - like longer than my living room long and I knew I was going to need help the first time to figure it out. I'm not so good with instructions, so I enlisted my husband to help me. We stretched it out, folded it in half (keeping the length but losing the width) and found the middle. Then I managed to wrap it around my waist, up and over my arms, back around then to the front then a tie. I have to say I'm even impressed with myself as I write this. Next step was putting my little guy in. That was breezy as well.
I actually loved this product. I didn't think it would be easy (remember I'm challenged) but it totally was. The fabric is wonderful. It feels heavy but once on I didn't feel it at all. I like that the design allows to wear multiple ways. There is a bit of a learning curve to make sure you are carrying safely but it is not too bad. My only complaint is the instructional booklet shows baby facing outward but that is not a safe position for baby's hips. So skip that and you should be fine. At just under $35 - this wrap is a steal. So if your a seasoned baby wearer or a newbie like me - this one is worth trying out.
