PTPA Award Winning Sleepy Wrap

1 Nov
Okay people I have a confession….I LOVE BABYWEARING!  Well, if you read my blog you probably already knew that 😉 Babe is 5 months old and we have one carrier that we are still using and have been using since Day #1!  Know what it is?? It’s the PTPA Award Winning Sleepy Wrap!  Baby Boy was in the sleepy wrap just a few days old and is still snuggling in it daily with his mom and dad 🙂  This carrier is a one size fits all, meaning that it can be worn by various people in your family and it will accomodate everyone.  It’s a great solution for those who are looking to purchase a carrier before the birth of their baby and also don’t want to spend lots of money on various types and sizes of carriers/wraps.  I know many people will recommend that you wait until after the baby is born to try out carriers and see what you and the baby prefer but this is the one carrier that I highly suggest you have for immediately after the birth of your baby.  You will want to use it from day 1 and trust me….after giving birth going shopping for a carrier or wrap is not high on the priority list.
 
The Sleepy Wrap has enabled me to continue to work, type (even type this blog post as I wear baby in the Sleepy Wrap!), nurse while walking, grocery shopping, and do many other things all while keeping baby boy comfortable and secure against me.
 
The Sleepy Wrap is made of a stretchy material which ensures that no matter how tight you happen to tie it you can always fit your baby inside comfortable, after nursing it will go back to its original shape and size and you can take your baby out of the carrier numerous times without having to retie the whole thing.  This is what makes the Sleepy Wrap stand out from its competitors in my opinion.  I was also drawn to the Sleepy Wrap since the babies hips and legs are supported which ensures there are no pressure points on their developing spine and hips.

Most days I wear my son instead of lugging around the stroller everywhere we need to go. It is so handy when I want to go grocery shopping or to run in to a store to pick something up.  I throw the carrier on when I get to the store or when I am wearing the Sleep Wrap I can  leave the carrier on while I am driving as it does not impede what I am doing or interfer with the seat belt.  I quickly put him in the carrier, if he is asleep he usually stays asleep throughout the transfer, and away I go. I then have hands free to pick up my groceries, carry the bags to the car, etc.
 
Oh, and did I mention that most days it doesn’t matter what shirt I through on, or if I have spit up all over me? Since I wear my baby you usually don’t see the front of my shirt. My carriers are fashion accessories 🙂  With all the spit up babies bring this carrier has been washed several times with no fading or change of shape.

I get many questions when I am wearing babe out and about.  Most common question is when I am wearing the Sleepy wrap is people want to know if it’s complicated to put on.  It really is not hard to put one.  Read the instructions the first few times and after that you will be able to whip it on in no time!  I also receive very curious looks when I pull out a large piece of fabric and quickly tie it up around my body.  I love the questions that people ask and showing them how easy the Sleepy Wrap is to put on and how much baby boy loves it 🙂
 
At almost 16lbs baby boy is starting to get a little heavy for the Sleepy Wrap as it begins to sag at times when he has been in it for numerous hours.  They do show the Sleepy Wrap being used with larger sized babies but I find it best worn on younger babies.   However, if you feel comfortable wearing a larger baby the sleepy wrap can accomodate it! I am so glad that we had the Sleepy Wrap to use for our baby and can’t wait to use it for baby #2 too! (no we are not planning another one quite yet!)
 
If you are expecting a baby, or have a gift to buy for somebody who is expecting I would consider purchasing this wrap.  It really should be something that is handed to new parents after leaving the hospital.  At times it was the only time we got to sleep or  have a calm baby the first few days home where they are frightened and wondering what happened to that warm, cozy and dark place they lived for the past nine months went to.  It’s a great $50 well spent!

    We love our Sleepy Wrap, too. 😉 I’m entering because I know *so many* people due in the next few months — would love to gift them one! 🙂

    Grey is my fave colour because it doesn’t show dirt or spit-up. I love how easy the wrap is to wash — important, because babies are messy. 😉

    I work with a girl who is expecting and she had never heard of baby wearing so I am keeping her updated.

    I love the light blue one. I actually have a Moby Wrap… which is very similar to the Sleepy Wrap. I LOVE to baby wear, and I’d love to have 2 wraps… one for the house and one I could keep in the van! Especially since I’m expecting again in May 🙂

    I’d love a red sleepy wrap. I think it would be great for the holidays… it’s a great fashion accessory!! LOL. It makes taking baby out very quick and easy, no stroller needed.

    I like the Royal Blue colour best and I like the fact that it’s lightweight and that it fits small babies! I have 3 carriers and they are all useless me my small, lightweight baby.

    I like the dark pink, but, of course, hubby would never wear it so I think I would get green. I love that it is one size fits all! That means everyone that loves baby can wear him or her with the same carrier.

    I like the sleepy wrap because it keeps me close to my baby while keeping my hands free to deal with my growing toddler.
