This review and giveaway is part of the New Baby Event Part 2! Make sure you check out all of the other giveaways for the new mom and baby going on now! Lots more to come too so check back often!
One of the best things about having a newborn baby is cuddling them, kissing them, sniffing their sweet little baby heads, and generally spoiling them! That is the perfect reason to wear your baby! And, if you have a toddler running around, babywearing isn’t just a luxury, it is a necessity! That is why I was so excited to try and review the beautiful wrap from Sugar Sweet Baby! I adore the designs she chooses!
If you haven’t tried a wrap, don’t be afraid! Wraps looks extremely intimidating but either watching a video tutorial or very detailed drawings/pictures tutorials (Sugar Sweet Baby has a fabulous booklet with instructions that they send out!) can make you a wrapping pro in no time. With my first son I watched a lot of videos and practiced in my home before I took him out in public in our wrap. I started late and never had a chance to wrap him as a newborn so I was so excited about wrapping baby number 2!
Why Choose a Sugar Sweet Baby Wrap?
First, you are buying from a fabulous mama! I have “known” her for quite a while from Twitter (surprise, surprise). She is a caring person who loves babywearing!
Her wraps are well made and gorgeous! Plus, the bamboo is super soft! While an all stretchy wrap is great, a stretchy wrap with a cotton knit panel in the front makes for a more decorative look and offers a little more support for older babies. It is like a cross between a woven and a stretchy wrap!
Sugar Sweet Baby Wraps are WAHM made items, and are of course made here in the USA!
After my son arrived I was really excited to begin
babywearing again. It took me about a week to feel “healed” enough. Since then I have been using this wrap more than any of my other carriers! Wraps are perfect for those tiny babies, especially since they cannot hold up their heads yet. Plus, in this cold weather a wrap is even nicer because it keeps them all bundled up next to you and you can cover their little heads.
So far since having this baby I have worn him in the wrap:
- Around the house (of course)
- Walking around downtown Cazenovia
- Shopping (various places and times)
- My Gym (while I chased my toddler)
- Mall Play Center (while I once again chased my toddler)
Not bad for a week, right? I make sure to carry the wrap with me when I go out so I have it handy. I have already washed it once after a major spit up occurred. The wrap came out just as soft as before it went in.
The only downside to a wrap is that is is bulky to carry around in your diaper bag. If I know for certain I will be wearing Everett in my Sugar Sweet Baby wrap I “pre-wrap” at home so that when I get to where I am going I can just pop him in. This is much easier than wrapping him while in the car, outside in the cold, or in a store. Especially if my toddler is with me!
If you believe in the “4th Trimester” them wrapping is so helpful for this period of time when the baby needs to be held close and cuddled. I have received so many positive comments while wearing my son out and about in this wrap. Most people see how cozy he is and content and comment on that. One woman actually thought I was pregnant (I had my coat on over the wrap so only his little head was out) until she approached me. Wearing your baby is like being pregnant. The baby gets rocked and swayed while you move, like he did in the womb, and is usually comforted to a quiet calm or to sleep. And, you get to wrap your arms around that little bundle and squeeze tight. But, you arms aren’t tied up! You can let go and go about your day!
