Baby wearing wraps are very versatile pieces of baby gear. You can wear your baby in baby wearing wraps from the first day your baby is born, until your baby no longer wants to be carried in baby wearing wraps.
What are baby wearing wraps
A baby wearing wrap is a long piece of cloth that you wrap around your body and tie to secure your baby to yourself instead of carrying your baby in your arms, in a stroller, or in an infant car seat carrier. Baby wearing wraps are generally made from loom woven material, not your ordinary fabric one would buy at the local fabric store. Many of the manufactures of baby wearing wraps make sure their fabric is made using fair trade. Woven fabric for baby wearing wraps can come from Germany, Bali, or Guatemala as well as other places. Baby wearing wraps come in many different lengths and colors. The standard baby wearing wraps lengths are: size 1 or 2.2 meters, size 2 or 2.6 meters, size 3 or 3.2 meters, size 4 or 3.6 meters, size 5 or 4.2 meters, size 6 or 4.6 meters, size 7 or 5.2 meters and size 8 or 5.7 meters. The longer the wrap is, the more baby wearing wraps carries you can do with it, although the longer baby wearing wraps cannot easily do the carries meant for shorter baby wearing wraps as there would be too much fabric left over and the shorter baby wearing wraps do not have enough fabric to do some of the carries meant for longer baby wearing wraps. You must decide what sort of carries you want to do with your baby wearing wraps and buy the correct size for those carries. There are charts you can find on the internet that will tell you what length of wrap is best for the different carries. Many people have several sizes of baby wearing wraps so they can choose which carry to do and will have the appropriate baby wearing wrap to do it with.
