I LOVE my sleepy wrap. Much better than a Moby. It is thinner and therefore not as bulky. It is aslo super soft ( think of a worn in old tee shirt ) and stretchy. The stretch of the fabric makes it easier to get baby in. You just need to make sure to wrap it TIGHT, so baby does not slip. I teach babywearing classes and this is a favorite by everyone. This is better for babies until they are big enough to be carried on your back, then I switch to a Mei Tai
Sleepy Wrap Classic Wrap Baby Carrier
Pros: safe and snuggly affordable looks good folds up compactly available in many colors daddy friendly unisex design
Cons: sometimes too warm and has a learning curve not always the best for breastfeeding not great for lots of ups and downs
The sleepy wraps have really worked well for us, we started at 2 weeks and he is 4 months now, there was a short time when it wasn't working because he was stretching his legs out trying to stand and kick but after I figured out he just needed his legs out he was ready to go again.
Breastfeeding - it's been a little difficult, basically if we are both calm and maybe even have a mirror he can get in it right and I look pretty decent and he can still look around while he eats but that said I don't recommend it if your hot and uncomfortable and nervous in a crowd and your baby is hot and hungry and crying then not so much.
Forward facing - although nap.com does not say that the sleepy can be for forward facing I've seen other moms do it and so I tried it and it does work it holds him in safe and secure and he loves looking out and seeing everything while still being close and holding my fingers in his hands I only recommend it for at home around the house, for me I just felt weird out and about and not being able to see his face and I felt like I couldn't protect him but maybe thats just me.
Pros: its very safe and snuggly, affordable now priced at $50 under boba wrap, it looks good, it folds up compactly, it comes with a little bag for it which I am constantly losing but still nice to have even though for me it mostly lives either on my body or rolled up into a ball, it's fun that its available in so many colors which means that its daddy friendly and it has unisex design
Cons: sometimes it's too warm too, it was too warm for me to wear outside in the summer and it's a little too warm to put tuck his head in when he's sleeping because his little head will sweat and it also was a little hard to learn to use at first but its just a learning curve like any other carrier, and its not always the best for breastfeeding or for lots of ups and downs either
Pros: comfortable, easy to tie, inexpensive
Cons: a little tough to get baby in, felt like I had to check frequently to make sure infant was able to breathe
I used my Sleepy Wrap for every nap during my son's newborn days. I found it very easy to use, though I did have trouble on occasion getting him into it as you have to tie it tightly for it to support the baby. It was not expensive, so it was a great way to try out babywearing as a FTM. Not sure if it was just my new-Momness, but I did feel I had to check frequently to ensure that baby's face wasn't covered and he was able to breathe (he was fine every time, of course). Good wrap!
Pros: comfortable, doesn't hurt my back, baby LOVES it!
Cons: Takes a bit of practice to feel comfortable using it.
I love this wrap! I have four children, and only knew about the Sleepy wrap with Child #4. Wish I knew about it sooner. I love it b/c of the head support for the baby when I bend over, for not hurting my back, for how much my baby loves it, for holding my friend's twin babies when she could find no way to hold them both, for looking just cool, and for making my life with 4 so much easier.
Pros: Comfortable, soft, versatile
Cons: Inconvenient and can't hold toddlers easily.
I like this for the versatility of positioning but it just isn't very convenient to put on and off. It seems like a nicer fabric than the Moby I used to have. For long walks it is wonderful.
Pros: So soft, easy to use (once you learn how to wrap), portable, washable and comfy for mom and baby
Cons: Hard to keep clean if you are wraping in a strange place.
I love this wrap, had another less stretchy wrap, but the Sleepy is more comfortable and I think breathable and easier to use.
People think it's complicated, but it's not. It's quite easy to learn to use and comfortable for wearer and baby. I love that it's totally washable, easy to store and the color is beautiful. It can be hard to wrap and keep off the ground, so I wrap at home before going out, since wrapping in the parking lot isn't easy or fun. It's so comfortable I end up wearing it and forgetting it's there when the baby's not in it.
About the color, saddly, if you have a girl, some people, not matter what your kid is wearing will still assume it's a boy because your wrap is blue.
Pros: stretchy, comfortable, easy to use
Cons: slight learning curve
Pros: Light weight, supportive, comfortable, ergonomically correct
Cons: has a learning curve, takes practice to nurse in
My husband and I both LOVE to wear our child in this wrap. It is comfortable for both of us to wear. We like the light-weight material and the fact that it has a little give, but keeps baby snug and secure. After a few times practicing putting it on, it is easy to master. The customer service for the company is incredible as well. They e-mailed 6 months after I purchased to check on my satisfaction and replaced the product at no cost when it developed 2 small holes in an inconspicuous spot. Fantastic wrap!
