A woven baby wrap is a long piece of fabric used to carry a child from infancy to toddlerhood. Depending on the age of your child and your experience with babywearing, woven wraps can be used for a variety of carrying positions like front carry, hip carry and back carry. Wraps come in different sizes, with lengths ranging anywhere from 2.7 to 5.2 meters (9 to 17 feet) in length.
Wraps also come in a wide variety of fibres and blends — everything from easy care cotton, linen hemp and wool . Each specialty blend provides varying levels of support, with some blends specially made for warmer and cooler climates or weight of your child. Many wraps are suitable for carrying newborns and heavier babies or toddlers, usually up to around 20kgs or until the parent and baby are still comfortable.
The advantages of using a woven wrap over other carriers are the versatility, support and weight distribution it provides the wearer. Woven wraps are also often selected for their naturally beautiful and aesthetic. They are the only baby carrier which can be used comfortably from birth through toddlerhood.
