I am very excited to host a great giveaway! In partnership with my Baby Birds Farm and Cocina, I am raffling off an Ergobaby Wrap. I believe firsthand in the benefit of keeping baby close and wearing a them in a hug. Babies that are kept close to parents (both moms and dads) are calmer, happier and easier. Wearing them keeps your arms free, and if ergonomic, is much better for your back. For more tips on how to prepare for an easy postpartum time, please see this post on finding your circle of support.
For the parents that already love babywearing, what makes this wrap unique is that it is a hybrid stretchy wrap, half way between a stretchy wrap (like a Moby) and a woven wrap. It is literally made of yoga pants material. So imagine the comfort and gentle compression of your favorite yoga pants. The wrap is perfect for newborns. Since it keeps it’s shape better than other stretchy wraps it will also last you longer and work for bigger babies.
For those that can’t wait until the end of the contest, or if you don’t win and want to buy a wrap, now is a great time. I have a promo code for 20% off the Ergobaby Wrap and the Ergobaby Swaddler. Enter “ocnewborn” at checkout.
Awesome! I’m in the market for a new type of carrier. This looks close to what I’d like!
It is very cuddly, Melissa.
If I had a baby wrap I would wear my little girl everywhere! To the market, at the park while watching my older son play, on our family walks. No need for a bulky stroller when you have a baby wrap!
Ciji, We never travel with a stroller –just one more thing to carry. A wrap or babycarrier is perfect for the store and park.
This would make grocery shopping easier for me and my little one!
Thanks Nicki. Did you know that putting a carseat on top of a shopping cart is actually very dangerous? A wrap is the only way I bring my little one to the store.
I love the Ergo and used the soft carrier for my daughter constantly. Now being pregnant with baby number two I would love to try out an Ergo wrap!
Danielle, the wrap is perfect for newborns.
I’m new to baby wearing but would love to use this wrap at a conference I have coming up in July!
Aww, I wore my first in a wrap to a work conference when she was three weeks old. It worked very well. Worn babies cry less.
I’ve done almost everything while wearing my babies. Thank goodness I did otherwise nothing would’ve gotten done!
