love at first wrap

Wearing your baby in a wrap is so comfy and soothing for your child. I've always thought of it as a post-utero womb sort of experience for my little guy. Not only is it a bonding experience, but it's comfortable for me as a mother too.

The good folks at Sleepy Wrap created their invention in the best way an invention can be created. Out of need. After the birth of their daughter, they really wanted to keep her close to them instead of just laying her down. They tried slings, but all seemed to put undue stress on their shoulders and backs. Wallah! Sleepy Wrap!

Why choose Sleepy Wrap over another wrap?
  • gives great support for little heads and necks - especially when your baby falls asleep and when you are on a long walk and need great support

  • custom fit- simply tie the wrap carrier snug against your body and no matter what body type you are, it will fit! They even having videos online to help you. Worried about your post-baby muffin top? (Good I'm not the only one.) The fabric (cotton/spandex blend) is so incredible it doesn't make it look like your oozing out.

  • holds your baby high - the fabric bounces back unlike the t-shirt like material of other stretch baby wraps to keep your baby snug against your chest

  • feels soft on your baby’s skin

  • more snug than carrying a car seat

  • grows with you and your baby - it's optimal for infants (even premies) yet you may continue to carry your baby with this wrap baby carrier as long as you are both comfortable

  • evenly distributes the weight of your baby - much more supportive than carrying with your arms, on one shoulder or your hip.

  • affordable- a great value seeing that your baby will probably begin to walk on his own before he outgrows the wrap.

Boatboy loves to be wrapped! He feels safe and secure and can look around. It allows me to be hands free to wrangle LA while he's running around. I wear Boatboy when I cook, walk at the zoo or children's museum, shop or any other time he is tired. He falls right to sleep...as you can see below. He is out like a light!
