I LOVE having the opportunity to try all these amazing baby carriers! This next carrier has been one of my go-to carriers! It is AWESOME! The Cuddly Wrap by Peapod Creations is made of 100% organic cotton and is so soft and stretchy!
I contacted Peapod Creations regarding this event and was sent a Demo Cuddly Wrap in sage for my review. This is what I received:
Confession. When I took this wrap out of the package I was a bit intimidated. It's very long and I was concerned that I would not wrap it correctly or tie it the right way and that my inexperience with wraps in general could cause my baby to fall or get hurt! Then I found these video's that Peapod Creations has created to give visual instructions on how to properly use their CuddlyWrap!
It is super easy and one of the best ways *in my opinion* to wear your baby!! Especially when they are newborns!!
Here is some more information on the CuddlyWrap *taken from Peapod Creations' website*:
"The CuddlyWrap™ is a wrap-style baby carrier that is designed to move with you and your baby, to be secure, yet not restrictive. There are no age or weight restrictions so you can continue to use the CuddlyWrap™ from newborn to toddler. There is no limit on the amount of time you can carry your baby in the CuddlyWrap™.The CuddlyWrap™ is made from 100% organic cotton, making it extremely soft, lightweight and breathable. The CuddlyWrap™ is one piece of fabric so there are no seams, straps, snaps or buckles to adjust, break, or lose. The strength and security of the CuddlyWrap™ is in the high quality fabric and the way it is tied. The length of the CuddlyWrap™ accommodates all adult sizes.
Each CuddlyWrap™ comes with an illustrated Instruction Manual."
Here are the benefits of the CuddlyWrap *taken from Peapod Creations' website*:
"For BabyEvery baby needs and loves to be held. Babies carried in the CuddlyWrap feel more secure because they are close to your heartbeat, voice, scent and warmth which promote optimal development. The baby is positioned at the appropriate height for eye contact and visual stimulation with your face. For a newborn, the CuddlyWrap promotes vestibular development (inner ear and balance) by providing boundaries and movements that mimic the environment of the womb.
Additional benefits of carrying your baby in the CuddlyWrap include:
- Baby is more relaxed and content; feels secure and therefore cries less.
- Enhances motor skills and coordination by stimulating baby's sense of balance.
- Promotes a quiet alert state and energizes baby's nervous sytem.
- Stimulates baby's brain development and cognitive learning
- Helps baby settle into sleep more quickly.
The design of the CuddlyWrap™ ensures that the weight of the baby is evenly distributed. There are no stress points to cause strain on the neck, shoulders or back allowing you to carry your baby in comfort. Even those with chronic back conditions have found they can carry their growing babies in comfort. For adults with various physical and medical considerations, the CuddlyWrap™ provides a unique opportunity to carry and bond with the baby in their life. For some, using the CuddlyWrap™ also means they can continue to be independent with activities of daily living, mobility and communication. The CuddlyWrap™ provides the opportunity for extended periods of closeness that gives them all the positive benefits of bonding with their baby."
Instructions for use:
The strength and security of the CuddlyWrap™ is the fabric and the way it is tied.
