#BabyWearing : The KangaWrap

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. 

Have you tried baby wearing? Do you enjoy it? What is your favourite baby carrier?

  1. Oooohhh, I love this post so much! I had S in a wrap sling until she was too heavy for it, then I moved onto a more structured sling. I didn't use my pushchair for weeks at a time and loads of people knew me just because I always had a baby strapped to me! Now she's too big for a sling I really do miss it. All those free cuddles! Make the most of them xx

  2. Awhh she looks so cosy!! I loved the look of kangas but never invested as Ophelia wasn't the keenest on being worn (too nosy!). We were gifted a stretchy wrap which she liked but I found it too long and a bit if a FAFF to take on and off alone, plus she would never sleep in it! She loves our ergo and still goes in it now on my back :)
