Review and Giveaway of My Baby Nest Wrap
It is a common knowledge that children love to be held. Having four children in six years means I have been holding babies and toddlers a lot! It gets tricky when you have a fussy baby, and dinner is needing to get on the table. Or the dishes have formed a little mountain, and you realize you *must* tackle them! I have relied on baby carriers to get me through many of these times, and I honestly don't know what I would do without them. That's why I was so excited when I was given the chance to review My Baby Nest Wrap. This wrap is the neatest idea, it is like a moby wrap, except they have already done the work of wrapping for you. It is in two pieces, and for those who struggle with one long piece of fabric, this is ideal! After one try I had it figured out, and I have a happy baby when she is in it! This wrap has two interlocking pieces of fabric that you wear around your body and put the baby into. Then there is a belt that wraps around the baby at your waist that has rings to adjust it where you need it to be.
What I really like about this wrap is all the options you have. With solid carriers you normally can only put them facing you, or facing out. Olivia loves to be facing out but I didn't have a carrier that would accommodate that. She was delighted to get wrapped in this where she could see everything!
My Baby Nest Wrap is made out of high quality stretchy fabric. The company says that it can hold the weight from newborn up to 35 lbs. I did try putting my two year old on my back, and that didn't go so well. Most Mom's that I talk to say stretchy wraps work the best when the child is younger, but once they get a toddler they do stretch out under the weight. I have found that to be true also. I think this wrap would be excellent with newborns babies under one! Olivia is almost 5 months, and it is great for her.
