Organic SleepyWrap Review and Giveaway


Having a baby in a carrier makes my life SO much easier.  Little Miss Princess likes to be held and carried around all the time and it can be difficult to do with the boys running around and wanting my attention at the same time!  When I was given the opportunity to review an organic SleepyWrap for this Earth Week celebration, I was a little little intimidated, but pretty excited at the same time.  I'd never tried a wrap before and wasn't sure what to expect.


When it arrived in it's compact packaging I STILL wasn't sure what to expect.  When I opened it, the material seemed to go on forever!  I quickly found the instruction booklet and followed the picture directions for the basic tie.  In no time, Little Miss Princess was snug and secure.  I quickly learned that you should try to tie the wrap as tightly as possible, to the point that it doesn't look like baby would fit, and that the fabric will stretch out to accommodate baby, but the tight wrapping will keep her super safe and secure.  I love that the wrap is so versatile, any size mama can use it!

 (Not a very good picture...it's hard to take a picture of yourself in a wrap!  As you can see, she falls right asleep!)

I haven't tried it with Tiny Man, I'm not sure I could get Mr. Independent into it without a fight, but I love that if we're out and about and he needs to be close to mommy, it's a possibility!  A carrier makes life so much easier -- the boys can ride in the double stroller and see the world and Little Miss Princess is cozy and warm next to mommy!

I found the SleepyWrap to be very comfortable and Little Miss Princess loves it.  I am able to wear her in the wrap and carry Tiny Man around because I don't have to worry about Little Miss Princess' head control or Tiny Man trying to poke her.  He doesn't seem to realize she's in the wrap and thinks I'm just carrying him around like usual!

The SleepyWrap can be used from day one, and depending on your child, can be used all the way through to toddlerhood!


Buy It!

You can purchase and organic SleepyWrap directly from their shop online for $59.95, or find an authorized retailer!
