The KeaBabies Baby Wrap Carrier is the perfect tool to help you bond with and nurture your new little one! Babywearing has amazing health benefits, both for mama and baby! From helping with breastfeeding in allowing you to do household tasks, babywearing can aid in many aspects of parenthood! Here are some of the most common questions about the KeaBabies Baby Wrap Carrier.
1. When can I start wearing my baby in a wrap carrier?
The carrier is designed for babies and children 0-36 months – so you can begin wearing your baby as soon as you get home from the hospital! Always ask a pediatrician first if your baby is premature or has any health conditions that may impact your ability to wear her in a carrier. The KeaBabies Baby Wrap Carrier is ultra-soft, perfect for cradling your precious newborn. Always be sure to use the Newborn Hug Hold position when carrying an infant in a wrap carrier.
2. Can you use the wrap carrier with older babies and toddlers?
The KeaBabies Baby Wrap Carrier is great for children ages 0-36 months of age, so you can absolutely still wear your older baby or toddler! You may need to find different positions to wear your baby as he grows bigger. The KeaBabies Baby Wrap Carrier can even be used as a ring sling – which is a great way to carry heavier babies and toddlers! Some mamas prefer a hip carry or outward-facing carry as baby gets older. Babywearing has many benefits, even for toddlers, and can help you stay hands-free!
3. How do I know if my wrap is in the correct position?
There are a few safety checks you’ll want to keep in mind when babywearing. First, the baby should be snug – wrapped tightly in the carrier, with no loose or gaping fabric. Baby should be in view at all times. Your baby’s back should be properly supported by the wrap (try to pull up the part of the fabric with the KeaBabies logo up over your baby’s back toward her shoulders). Your little one’s chin should be off of her chest, so her airways are not restricted. Lastly, the baby should always be close enough to kiss – not too far down your body where you can’t easily reach the top of her head.
4. I can’t quite master how to use the wrap carrier. Where can I find help?
There are many tutorials for the KeaBabies Baby Wrap Carrier on YouTube. There are videos explaining different positions of babywearing, and also how to tie the wrap carrier around your body. You can also seek out a local babywearing group where you live. You may also find a friend who is experienced in babywearing, and ask her to come to help you practice wearing your baby. You can also ask questions or share pictures in our online community, “KeaBabies Love: Motherhood, Babywearing, Breastfeeding Support Group,” on Facebook. Also, practice makes perfect, so don’t give up if it takes you a few tries to get completely comfortable babywearing!
5. How many colors is the wrap carrier available in?

6. Is the fabric heavy or lightweight?
The wrap carrier is made of premium quality breathable cotton spandex that keeps you and your baby comfortable, even in hot or cold weather! The fabric is stretchy and breathable enough to be comfortable to wear during warm summer days, but thick enough to keep baby warm during the winter!
7. Can plus-size mamas still use the wrap?
Yes, the KeaBabies Baby Wrap Carrier is a one-size-fits-all, so it is adjustable to whatever size you are! There is plenty of fabric to make the wrap carrier comfortable even for larger mamas! Everyone should be given the opportunity to wear their baby, no matter their size!
