Woa Bebe are big lovers of babywearing due to it’s many benefits for both baby and parent, but also because it simply makes life as a busy parent that little bit easier and we love being as close to our little ones as possible. With jargon such as buckles, meh dais, woven wraps and ring wraps, add in the vast amount of different styles and choices it can be confusing to know which one to choose. If you are just beginning to research babywearing or already a big fan but want to know more, then we want to help you decide which carrier would work best for you.
It’s time to take a closer look at the two styles of baby carriers and compare wraps vs kangaroo hoodie carrier to see what each has to offer so you can decide what is right for you.
Wrap me up
Wrap carriers are pretty much what it says on the tin, it’s a long piece of fabric you wrap and tie around your body in different ways to hold your baby. Every wrap is more or less the same, the only variations are the material fabric used and the print design of the wrap. Other than that a wrap is a wrap and will always be in the form of a long piece of fabric.
These come in mainly 2 different styles; stretchy or woven wraps. Stretchy wraps are made of elasticated fabrics such as cotton jersey. This is often the best for newbie wrap users as you can simply tie the wrap around your body first then stretch the material over your baby as you place them in. Woven wraps tend to be used by more confident wrap users or parents with older children as the sturdier material works better with heavier toddlers.
Why choose a wrap?
Wraps have a large fan base for the main reason it is hard to match the closeness and snug feeling that you get from a wrap. The snugness you feel right up close to that heartbeat is about as close to being in the womb as your baby can get once they have entered the world.
The sky really is your limit in terms of versatility with wraps. You can twist, wrap and move them in any direction to carry your baby in a whole variety of positions. However, for some users it is this freedom that makes some parents nervous that they might not do it safely enough.
Things to consider
It takes a certain skill level to use a wrap well. It is not hard to learn but it will take you a few goes to get it right (YouTube will be your best friend for tutorials). Still, don’t let fear hold you back because the versatility you can achieve with a little bit of skill will provide you with an unmatched babywearing experience in those early months.
