Over my next few posts, I'll be sharing the different types of carriers we use along with a little review of each. I'm starting with one of my favorites: the Solly Baby Wrap.
Spoiler alert: I should probably become a sales rep for Solly wraps because I love them so much.
The Solly Baby Wrap is AH-mazing. It is technically a stretchy wrap but it is just a little bit stretchy compared with a traditional stretchy wrap like the Boba or Moby. I have it in 4 colors: Natural and Grey Stripe, Aqua, Marsala, and Charcoal Swiss Dot. I originally got a second Solly wrap for when my first was in the laundry because I couldn't live without it. Then I got my 3rd because it was a pretty pattern, and my 4th was on sale (around Thanksgiving).
I used this wrap literally every day for the first 6 months. I still use it but not quite as often now that the babies are heavier and I need a little more support when we are out and about for long periods of time.
The Solly wrap is so soft, easy to get the hang of, and so snuggly for squishy newborns. It's really comfortable and the Lenzing Modal fabric is light, airy, and perfect for our summer babies. I also found it very easy to wear all day because it is so light. I would put it on in the morning and pop the babies in and out. I found it easy to take the babies in and out of the wrap but after a few times, I did need to retie it so it was tight enough.
Solly Wraps are also great for traveling! It's perfect for a plane ride or the beach:
When the babies are not in the wrap, it is also perfect for nursing discretely. Solly Baby has videos on how to nurse without taking the baby out of the wrap but I find it much easier to just take them out and put them back in.
Cost: $-$$ ($65 but my sale wrap was $45)
Pros: light and airy, super soft, easy to wear all day
Cons: hard to nurse without taking them out, slightly higher learning curve than other stretchy wraps
Verdict: buy one right now, you won't regret it
