Fabric & Sizing

 Recommendations for Baby Size

Newborn Hold/Skin to Skin:

This hold is best suited for babies up to 13-15 pounds depending on length of child.  Make sure baby is scooped in a fetal position with knees tucked into body. No need to straddle the baby's legs and displace natural positions.  Remember, the Mommy Wrap is not a 100% hands-free product, but it does add a good amount of support to Mom when holding the baby.  Make sure you are always cautious and ensure your baby is held firmly.

For bigger and older babies in an upright position: 

Best suited for babies up to 18 pounds. Place baby in upright position and straddle baby's legs over Mom's belly. Tuck the excess fabric underneath as high a possible. Remember, the Mommy Wrap is not a 100% hands-free product.  It simply adds support to Mom when holding the baby.  Make sure you are always cautious and ensure your baby is held firmly.

Cradle Hold:

Best suited for babies up to 23 pounds. Place baby sideways across Mom's body and tuck the excess fabric under baby. Remember, the Mommy Wrap is not a 100% hands-free product.  It simply adds support to Mom when holding the baby.  Make sure you are always cautious and ensure your baby is held firmly.

Hip Hold:

Best suited for babies between 15-23 pounds. Ensure baby can hold head up on its own before trying this move.  Simply place the baby on your hip, connect fabric from the same side where baby is sitting to the opposite side's inside button.  Tuck the excess fabric under baby's bum.Remember, the Mommy Wrap is not a 100% hands-free product.  It simply adds support to Mom when holding the baby.  Make sure you are always cautious and ensure your baby is held firmly.

Recommendations for Fabric Size

 

Double Knit Material (polka dot & aztec)

Fabric

Our reversible double knit fabric is made with quality strength and holds the perfect stretch for adding to the support of helping mom carry and hold baby. The fabric made of 60% polyester and 40% cotton is breathable, yet adds the perfect warmth and layer without adding too much weight. The fabric can be washed and dried over and over without pilling, however to maintain the very best quality of life, try washing with like materials (ie avoid washing with towels and blankets), and tumble dry on low.  The fabric is made in Taiwan, however the production and manufacturing of the Mommy Wrap is done in Kansas City, Missouri, USA.

Sizing

The double knit fabric cuts and sews small.  We are currently fulfilling orders by sending what is labeled as one size bigger, but is actually the correct size for Mom.  

Lightweight Hacci Material

Fabric

Our light weight hacci material is made with high -quality right here in the USA. Hacci material, made up of rayon, polyester and spandex is fairly new to the fabric industry, yet rapidly gaining popularity. This hacci material has the perfect drape, which allows you to add a layer to any outfit, and is lightweight enough to give you warmth without overheating. The fabric is durable and maintains it soft, sweater-like feeling throughout many washes.

Sizing

If you are a size medium T-shirt, you would actually be comfortable in a medium hacci or large hacci if you are unsure.
