This giveaway is now closed, but please enjoy the review.
My first experience with a wrap was not a positive one, but so many people rave about them I was thinking that perhaps I had just picked the wrong one. After doing a little research and reading I discovered the SleepyWrap. *Thanks to Ashley of NAP, Inc for providing an Organic SleepyWrap for review!* As soon as I received the wrap and pulled it out of the matching drawstring bag I knew I was in love.
Past experiences with a wrap that belonged to SisterL of a best selling wrap had caused me to doubt my desire to babywear via a wrap, but SleepyWrap has completely renovated that idea for me. I can honestly say that I am terribly sad that I did not know about SleepyWrap when AppleBlossom was a newborn, but now I know and will be prepared next time around. Honestly, a SleepyWrap is a must have for new mamas!! It really is the best place after the womb.
While part of me is disappointed that I did not know to invest in a SleepyWrap at the beginning. It would definitely be worth every penny of buying one when I finally did get my skeptical hands on one at four and a half months old. Even now at AppleBlossom's seven months, I would still suggest someone go out and get one! Especially as the teething epidemic has begun... nothing soothes quite like our SleepyWrap.
Maybe it is because I am a blogger, but I am really particular about the companies that we use products from with our AppleBlossom. Customer service is a must, but information is extremely important and it is surprising how many companies out there provide products with little to no pertinent information. SleepyWrap.com is a breath of fresh air. They have FAQs and Testimonials, as well as photos and detailed instructions on use and tying methods. They even link you to various videos that are thorough and understandable. Articles on the benefits of babywearing and "Exterior Gestation" provide an in depth and educational value on their website and company that you just do not find much elsewhere. They also have a great Comparison Chart for various Baby Carriers that is very informative as well.
True that at first any wrap, especially a stretchy wrap (mine is Organic cotton terry) can be a bit intimidating. But after a few wraps you'll be a pro and the comfort it completely worth it! I have tried several other wraps that I appreciate, but none of them quite add up to the SleepyWrap. If anyone were to ask me for a wrap suggestion, this would be my first choice every time.
Just a few more points in the plus column: Not only is the wrap delivered very quickly, but it is affordable! And available in organic in two colors! As well as plethora of other solid colors in their original classic fabric. You could literally have a wrap to go with every outfit in any color, or go with a neutral color (like those in the new organic line) to work with anything.
