I am one of those crazy babywearing mamas who gets all emotional when I see babies in slings. Learning to carry a newborn in a sling is one of the most freeing, empowering and connected experiences out there. I tentatively grew to love it the first time around but the second time was no slow burn love. I was utterly, heart-soaringly hooked.
A stretchy wrap is a wonderful way to get started. It doesn’t matter what body shape you are or how “technical” you are, with a bit of practice just about anyone can get on with this type of sling. So, I am thrilled to be giving away a soft, lightweight, organic cotton KangaWrap on the blog.
KangaWrap is a product of not-for-profit organisation Trade4Life. Profits from baby wrap sales fund maternity healthcare workers in Delhi’s slums through Asha India and a specific Christian Aid project “Nurturing Change in Kenya” to improve Maternal and Child Healthcare services in Kenya’s Narok County. Do read more about their charity work here.
I wanted to take a look at it for myself before giving one away but since Ophelia is way too big to be carried in a stretchy wrap, my beautiful friend Tash allowed me to take pictures of her with her newborn and toddler. Gosh, you know how to rock a wrap, Tash.
Something Tash noted was that the Kanga Wrap felt a bit firmer and less stretchy than some other stretchy wraps which she felt was a good thing as it was potentially more supportive. The material seemed lovely and soft to me. Certainly her baby had no complaints as she fell asleep while being wrapped!
