Last week I chatted on the blog about babywearing in general, about the different types of ways to carry your baby, and the benefits of carrying. You can read that post here. This week I want to share with you my favourite wrap that I can’t get enough of right now. I give you The Wrap by Solly Baby. From the moment this little package arrived on my door step, I could tell it was luxury and came from a company that takes pride in the details. The packaging it came in is so cute, I can’t seem to throw it out! It’s a work of art, really.
I first discovered Solly Baby on Instagram. The mom & pop shop is run by Elle & Jared. All the wraps are made right in California where they live so they can over see all the wrap-making which is how they are able to provide such a fantastic product.
The wrap is made out of a light t-shirt material so it’s insanely breathable and light, especially considering the metres of fabric that go into making a wrap. It folds up into its self with a little handy bag sewn into the end. This makes for easy storage in the diaper bag. It hardly takes up any space! Sometimes wraps can be heavy and hot which is the opposite with this wrap. I was atracted to this wrap when I saw Elle & Jared travelling Europe with their 3 kids. Elle posted a photo of her on Instagram wearing her wrap as a scarf when the baby wasn’t in it! I would never be able to do that with some of my other wraps! Just too much fabric and way too hot.
I use my Solly Baby Wrap a lot around the house. It’s like having my son wrapped in a nice light blanket but my hands are free to blog, clean, or just chill out and read a book. I also find myself reaching for the Solly Baby Wrap when I’m headed out to the library, play group, or just to the mall. It’s a very PRETTY wrap and looks so nice with a pair of dark jeans, boots, and a nice sweater.
Even though it’s light and “stretchier” than a lot of wraps, you can still get a really nice fit. I expect to be able to use this wrap into the spring and summer months. The company advises to use the wrap through out the first year of the baby’s life or up to 25 lbs! We are really looking forward to strolling on the boardwalk and taking Ollie to the local street fairs and festivals this summer in his Solly. Ollie loves his Solly!
