Snuggy Baby for the babywearing mom (cloth diapers too)


Staying close to your baby is the greatest feeling in the world, the daily snuggles warm your heart & just knowing your baby wants you pulls at your heart strings but sometimes mom has to wish she has 3 arms to get everything done. Good news mom your don't need an extra arm so you can clean the house or cater to the other kids, you just need Snuggy Baby & one of their wraps or ring slings
Snuggy Baby is like heaven to the all natural parenting mom or dad, this small online boutique is like a playground for every babywearing, cloth diapering parent around. Each wrap or ring sling has a matching diapering so if you are one of those parents who like their babies diaper to match their carrier you are in luck! Or this means you may have to hide a few carriers & diapers and act like they just magically appeared or that you swear you told your spouse about the new diapers & carriers coming to live with you (no I do not condone to lying but that doesn't mean you have to tell on yourself either). 
We had the honor of trying out a Snuggy Baby Hybrid Wrap, before now I had never heard of a "hybrid wrap" I though there were stretchy & then there were wovens but thanks to Snuggy Baby I have discovered a whole other world of wraps. 
What is a "Hybrid" wrap? 
You've likely heard of a stretchy wrap & a woven (I actually just mentioned these two wraps) & a hybrid is as if these two types of wraps got together & made baby wraps. It's a cross breed between the two & gives you the benefits of both. Stretchy wraps tend to be better for smaller babies & beginner wrappers while wovens are great for all sized babies but tend to need some breaking in since they do start out stiff when it comes to a material you are wrapping around yourself & your baby. This Snuggy Baby hybrid wraps gives you the best of both worlds, you get a bit of stretch to make it easy for you to wrap your baby & doesn't need any breaking in thanks to the cotton being a soft & gentle material. 

From Snuggy Baby 
  • Snuggy Baby Hybrid Stretch Wraps have all of the benefits of a stretchy wrap and the benefits of a woven wrap with none of the downsides. 
  • Our special fabric is a comfortable knit that is supportive enough to carry babies up to 35 lbs without sagging.  It is easy to wrap with, and requires no breaking in.  The supportive materials and design of the carrier allows you to do front and back carries.  It is made with 100% cotton so it is easy to wash and care for. 
  • This baby carrier is completely adjustable so one size fits all. It works between various care givers of all body types. Because you create a custom fit every time you tie it on, the wrap grows with your child, ensuring that they get a comfortable secure fit from the time that they come home until you are ready to stop carrying them (generally around 35 lbs. or 3 years).
  • The decorative panel lets you choose a design that accessorizes your wardrobe instead of the plain solid color that completely hides what you are wearing.  
  • The wrap measures 5 1/2 yards long. All of the edges have been carefully hemmed for a finished look. The tail has been tapered so you have a trim knot when you tie the wrap.

Our thoughts
I wasn't sure what to expect out of a hybrid wrap, it wasn't a stretchy wrap but it wasn't a woven so what's it going to be like? Let me just say it was LOVE at first wrap. I started wrapping 6 years ago when my first was born & back then I didn't know there were different types of wraps & I used only a stretchy, about 6 months in to our journey I stopped wearing, a stretchy wrap was no longer comfortable for me. With my second baby I learned about mai tais which were a nice alternative to wrapping but yet again our journey was cut short at 8 months due to discomfort. Now three babies & lots of carriers later I found a wrap I wish I had from the beginning. This not a woven but not a stretchy hybrid wrap from Snuggy Baby gives us what I loved about a stretchy wrap but also what I loved about a woven, it gives just enough stretch to make wrapping easy & it doesn't require us to break it it to be comfortable from the start. 

The material is 100% Cotton & boy does it feel like it, I just want to wrap myself up & use it as a blanket during the cold nights.  It's heavy enough to keep your warm but light enough to not make you over heat with your precious baby wrapped up with you. I absolutely love that the cotton doesn't "give" too much, so even with a wiggly 20 lbs nine month old the weight is always evenly distributed across my front & back. This hybrid wrap is definitely a must have for every wrapper or soon to be wrapper & we hope you fall in love with first wrap just like we did.
