Wrap Style Carriers are a must-have for new moms and dads!
If there’s one piece of baby gear I consider a must-have and an absolute tragedy if you never got a chance to own or use one, it’s the Wrap Style Baby Carrier. Wrap carriers are great for new moms and dads and essential to reducing the stress of caring for a newborn.
Life changes pretty drastically when your new little one is born. Dishes pile up, cleaning gets put off, grocery shopping becomes a chore and caring for siblings, pets and yourself takes some serious multi-tasking. <—Add a fussy, clingy or colicky newborn to the mix on top of that and you’ve got a recipe for exhaustion.
Wrap Style Carriers like the Boba Wrap and Moby Wrap will become your savior! The problem? Sometimes they can seem really complicated, after all, you are looking at one super long piece of fabric, likely reaching from floor to ceiling.
The good news about Wrap Style Carriers? They aren’t as complicated to use as they might first appear, in fact they’re quite easy to use and forgiving. They’re stretchy, accommodate babies of various ages from preemie to approximately 18 months.
