This sling is getting rave reviews for comfort and ease of use! The redesigned shoulder has a light pad. The rails are still unpadded for easy adjusting. Fans say it is the perfect first sling for new babywearers.
The design of this sling made my life so much more manageable! I could run after my toddler while keeping my 4 month old close and safe. I love the Maya Wrap!

Sleepy Wrap Baby Carrier
Retail Price: $39.95
The Sleepy Wrap is a comfortable stretchy baby wrap that offers great support for carrying your little one around. It is great on the carrier’s back as there are no pressure points on mom or baby and can be used from birth until toddler or as long as is comfortable for the both of you. The fabric of the Sleepy Wrap is a high quality knit and with a greater density comes the benefits of durability, extra support, and secuity. The give in the fabric makes it easy to wrap so that it fits just right – there is no need to guess how much room you need to leave for your baby to fit inside for a secure fit. With the Sleepy Wrap you simply tie the wrap snug against your body and no matter what body type you are, it will fit!
It was easy to use and helped me to keep my baby close and settled while I did work around the house. I also kept my hands free to push my son in a stroller when I went for a walk.

My daughter loved the carrier because she was able to see my face and it provided her with proper support that allowed her to enjoy the walking experience.

I love the infant support lining so you could use the product with an infant or a larger child. It is great that the carrier is buit with the infant section right in it and you don’t need to add something in. I also liked the removable head rest.

Suitable for premature/newborn infants through to toddlers – no age, weight or carrying restrictions. The CuddlyWrapTM is made from soft, breathable 100% certified organic cotton.
I love that it is organic and the cotton is so soft for the baby. It is practical and the colors are great. I think that the quality is extremely important especially in a carrier and something your child with snuggle into. Being organic makes it that much more appealing and the fact that we can use it into toddler hood adds value to it which is a mom on a budget is very important.
