It is true. I am in love all over again. First I fell in love with my husband, then with my son and daughter, and THEN I fell in love with babywearing! Of course, nothing can compare to my hubby, son and daughter...but babywearing? Hmmm...it's definitely up there too. ;) I feel SO incredibly privileged that I have been able to babywear both my kids since they were infants, and it has definitely benefited BOTH myself and my children in many ways!! My first baby carrier that I ever owned was a wrap. It was my introduction to babywearing, and it got me 110% hooked! A wrap is hands down the most comfortable carrier that I have ever used...and by now I have experimented with quite a few different styles. None can match the comfortability and coziness of the wrap. I recently received a new-to-the-market and VERY beautiful wrap from Phat Baby Wraps. Like me, the owner of The Baby Sling Shop also discovered the wrap first and fell in love with it. Now she has decided to branch out and create a new wrap...one that is unlike any other! Really...it is that good. Phat Baby Wraps are completely eco-friendly, are made with incredibly soft bamboo and organic cotton combinations, come in a great selection of stylish colors and even have a unique designer panel to add a special flair to your wrap! Only the highest quality of natural and eco-friendly fabrics are used to make Phat Baby Wraps and with the blend of bamboo and organic cotton these wraps are so soft it'll make you want to snuggle up in it and fall asleep too! ;) With a Phat Baby Wrap I can be confident that my precious babies are wrapped up in the best, softest, coziest and safest fabric possible. Oh...and did you know that there are actually MORE benefits to wearing your baby in bamboo and organic cotton besides the ones I just mentioned?! Bamboo not only adds that extra softness to the fabric, but it is AWESOME for temperature regulation!! This is one of my favorite aspects of bamboo...it is cool in summer and warm in winter and makes the Phat Baby Wrap perfect for EVERY season and temperature - year round! There are numerous other benefits as well...if you'd like to read more, head over here. I could rave about Phat Baby Wraps for a looooong time yet...but I won't. :) I'll let you get one and try it out yourself - you won't regret it...I promise! BUT I do just have to mention one other thing that I absolutely LOVE about Phat Baby Wraps. I would have never thought of this...but what a great idea! They are completely reversible! So you can use the wrap with the panel on the outside for that extra bit of style, or if you feel like you need a simple look or if Dad doesn't like the flowery panel ;), you can reverse it and it will be one solid color. Ingenious, huh? :)
As you can see in the pictures you can use this wrap right from newborn to toddler. Tate is a pretty light 2 year old, so he can still easily be carried on my back in the wrap...and if you can't tell from that big ol' grin on his face, he still loves it. :) If you are in the market for a wrap (which I think every mom needs :) ), Phat Baby Wraps would definitely be my first recommendation for you...these silky soft, natural & organic, stylish, and reversible wraps are definitely one of a kind (and nope...I'm not exaggerating :) ). Now, after all that if you're on the search for a carrier other than a wrap, you can definitely find a great selection of other high quality baby carriers over at The Baby Sling Shop. Check 'em out! :)
