You will seriously use this everyday, which is why we named it one of our BLANQI Everyday
™ motherhood must-haves! The Solly Baby goes with everything and goes everywhere. The best thing about this wrap is it's ability to scrunch it into a ball that fits into every bag you own. Pool bag, check! Diaper bag, check! Airplane carry-on, check! Crossbody sachel, even the smaller sized ones, check! No other ring or canvas carrier can get into the places this wrap can go. And because it goes everywhere, everyday, the fact that it is machine washable makes it even more practical for busy moms on the go. The fabric is a super soft blend that is strong enough to hold up baby for a sturdy and secure fit; but soft enough that you feel okay with it touching their new baby skin. I was concerned that it would overly stretch out in length after a few washes, but I wash it on cold, gentle dry and it has always retained its shape. It took me some time to figure out the correct tightness and tension to tie it up, but eventually got the hang of it. Watching the tutorial videos here helped and I would highly, highly recommend. And we love their message- I mean, swooning over here. At Solly Baby, closeness is what matters. The power of touch, the strength in being together, the comfort given just by being near, and that the most enduring relationships are not only in love but in experiencing life together. We believe our infant wraps bring you closer to your little one, physically and emotionally, while simultaneously giving you the freedom and comfort to take on daily life. We believe that taking on the role of mother, father or caregiver does not replace you as an individual, it simply adds to it. Our wraps reflect your personal aesthetic, seamlessly and luxuriously integrating all of the benefits of babywearing and the beauty of still being YOU. So the question is what do you wear when you're babywearing?
Once you become a babywearing pro, you can wear just about anything. From leggings to flowy dresses, to skinny jeans to fitted mini's, anything goes. But, comfort is key and feeling like you're pulled together enough to get out of the house with your little one can take some major effort in the beginning, so your BLANQI makes it easier. When paired with our Pull-down Postpartum and Nursing Tanktop , I can easily just adjust to nurse without having to take baby out of the wrap- which is such a lifesaver. The stretchy neckline just pops right under and around my breast, for easy access. I think it really helps to start out using this one right after delivery, so baby gets used to it right away and both items always get packed in my hospital bag for delivery day. I live in my Highwaist Postpartum + Nursing Support leggings , mainly because nursing or not; these become your new mom uniform for the first 12 months post-baby..and then maybe another 12 years because, once postpartum, always postpartum! I love these for babywearing because there is no waistband that makes babywearing sometimes uncomfortable. It's like a smooth, layer under that works with whatever long length tunic or tee I'm wearing that day. And sometimes it comes down to the differences. There are plenty of BLANQI knockoffs, but we are confident that our first ever and original maternity support and postpartum support products are different- and that difference is what makes them better. Same goes for the Solly Baby wrap. The differences are why we love them and can support another brand that makes motherhood easier!
THE SOLLY BABY DIFFERENCE
DESIGN Our wraps are designed for the first year or up to 25 lbs, and the majority of babes get the most use during the first 9 months.
FUNCTION Lightweight, easy to put on, Solly Baby wraps give you and your little one unparalleled closeness and comfort (read: “wrap naps” for hours), less crying (it's proven!), and reduced rates of postpartum depression.
MATERIAL All of our wraps are custom-made from certified Lenzing modal, which is a lightweight, buttery soft and sustainable fabric sourced from the pulp of Austrian beechwood trees.
USA MADE Everything from the fabric to the packaging is made in the US and dyed with environmentally-friendly dyes and there is a handy self-enclosing pocket at the end of the wrap for easy storage.
