About Stretchies

Stretchy wraps are lovely for newborns up to 3 or 4 months. They are versatile, so baby can be in the cradle hold, or sitting up towards you, you can breastfeed on the go, and even carry twins in it.

Despite the length of the material that can be overwhelming at first, a stretchy wrap is easy to use. The most important rule: tight.

As its name indicates, a stretchy wraps stretches, even more so after carrying your baby for a while. So get it tight from the start, and you are in for a comfy and safe ride.

Take a look at the "Fit Dad" video on Youtube. That's how tight it should be.

And as always, remember the TICKS rule: Tight - In view at all times - Close enough to kiss - Keep chin off chest - Supported back.
