I had a chance to review a SayWrap and what I like about this carrier.. Is first off how the product arrived.. It was Secured with hemp twine and beads..attention to details..it was a great first impression of SayWrap. Second is how light the wrap is. it was so comfy.. I carry Aiden quite a bit throughout the day while we are home and doing well...everyday things..getting Seamus on and off the bus... getting Jake ready for the day..cleaning, and blogging... this wrap was great, I did not find it at all too warm for use inside the house..the material was breathable... The material used is 100% ORGANIC lightweight Jersey Cotton, the edges are unfinished as Jersey Cotton does not fray, I was a little hesitant popping this wrap in the wash..but low and behold it was fine, and does quite well in the wash. My guy seams to suck on the fabric while he is being chauffeured around. So I need a wrap that can hold up to the washing machine.
A wrap can be overwhelming for a first time user. Practice... get your wee one settled and practice with her or him... Support your baby until you feel confident with the wrap or hold that you have chosen.

First, my baby, Evan. He was born March 13 of this year and I have been doing anything to avoid going back to work full time. Second, the wrap. After making my own wrap when he was about 2 months old, I was amazed at how helpful and comforting it was for both me and Evan. So, I put the two reasons together and would love to be able to help as many parents and babies as possible while making a little money at the same time.
2.What sets the SayWrap apart?
Most wraps are either very stretchy or not at all. The jersey cotton I use is in the middle. It's stretchy to be very comfortable for the newborn, but has a strength to support the older infant as well. My material is lightweight which keeps both carrier and baby cooler. They are also individually made with love from a SAHM:)
3.As a parent what benefits have you experienced from wearing your baby?
Oh, my. Where do I start? I love knowing that my baby is comfortable. Truly comfortable. Being worn must be the closest to being back in the womb there is. Wearing Evan helps calm him down if he's agitated, helps him handle new situations better, helps put and keep him asleep, and he just likes it! When he sees me putting my wrap on, he gets all smiley and happy!
It has also benefited me personally in many ways. It allows me to get things done around the house without hassle. It makes going out or shopping so much easier. (No worries about gross shopping cart seats!) And I don't have to worry about lugging around a big awkward stroller. (Which I did a couple times when he was a newborn, and I felt so silly and cumbersome) Also, I am an "attached" parent and I honestly just love having him right next to me; content. And now that he weighs a bit more, wearing him is a definite back saver. All in all, it makes me happy that I can do anything with him by my side; and he's happy to be there.
