Wearing my baby with a wrap makes traveling so much easier. There are many wraps out there. The Solly wrap is my favorite for a few reasons. One the material it so light and airy. I don’t get too hot wearing my baby. Second is because the fabric is stretchy I can adjust it to cover my babies face when she is sleeping.
Why use a Baby Wrap?
Wearing the baby in a wrap frees up my hands to take care of other children. Wearing her on the airplane made it so much easier to board and deplane. You can wear your baby through security. Most flight crews will ask you to take the baby out of the wrap for take off and landing. This is really annoying and I am hoping the FAA will change the rules soon. But as soon as you take off the ground you and put your baby back in. Just keep the wrap loose enough to reinsert the baby and then you can tighten the wrap while sitting down.
I have hiked, snowshoed, taken a boat ride all with my baby in the Solly wrap. It was a lifesaver. I wish I had this product with my first.
While in Kauai we took a boat ride to the Napali coast. The boat ride was bumpy but I felt completely safe having her in the wrap. If I had been holding her I would have been more nervous taking her on such a bumpy ride.
Stekki Bebe is another wrap I used a lot in Hawaii. The material is waterproof. It is thicker than the Solly wrap so I got hotter wearing it. But I used it at the pool and hiking. The wrap isn’t as long as Solly so for larger woman it might not have enough fabric.
