I love that there are some beautiful patterned stretchy wraps out there. Boba's Stardust Patterned Stretchy Baby Wrap is a simple yet effective geometric print of white on soft dove grey.
Babywearing is easily one of the best discoveries I've made as a new mother. It keeps the baby happy and lets you get out and about or get stuff done around the house. Plus, it often helps bub fall asleep (magic). Stretchy wraps like this one are fantastic for newborns and little babies.
Before selecting a brand of stretchy wrap to stock on Milk Tooth, I consulted a babywearing community forum I'm in about which stretchy wrap was the best. The overwhelming majority (around 70 per cent of responses) recommended the Boba stretchy wrap. A key reason given was that it doesn't get too hot while you're wearing your bub, while some of the other brands do.
A stretchy wrap is basically a long narrow piece of stretchy but very strong fabric that you can tie around yourself and your baby in a particular manner so as to keep baby snug against you and not affect your centre of gravity. It is so comfortable that I could wear Sylvie for hours without getting a tired back; whereas if I just held her in my arms I get a tired back (not to mention arms) in about ten minutes.
A Boba Stardust Stretchy Wrap would make a fabulous gift for a new parent. We have them in other colours too.
