I am one of those crazy babywearing mamas who gets all emotional when I see babies in slings. Learning to carry a newborn in a sling is one of the most freeing, empowering and connected experiences out there. I tentatively grew to love it the first time around but the second time was no slow burn love. I was utterly, heart-soaringly hooked.

A stretchy wrap is a wonderful way to get started. It doesn’t matter what body shape you are or how “technical” you are, with a bit of practice just about anyone can get on with this type of sling. So, I am thrilled to be giving away a soft, lightweight, organic cotton KangaWrap on the blog.

KangaWrap is a product of not-for-profit organisation Trade4Life. Profits from baby wrap sales fund maternity healthcare workers in Delhiโ€™s slums through Asha India and a specific Christian Aid project โ€œNurturing Change in Kenyaโ€ to improve Maternal and Child Healthcare services in Kenyaโ€™s Narok County. Do read more about their charity work here.

Kanga Wrap

I wanted to take a look at it for myself before giving one away but since Ophelia is way too big to be carried in a stretchy wrap, my beautiful friend Tash allowed me to take pictures of her with her newborn and toddler. Gosh, you know how to rock a wrap, Tash.

Something Tash noted was that the Kanga Wrap felt a bit firmer and less stretchy than some other stretchy wraps which she felt was a good thing as it was potentially more supportive. The material seemed lovely and soft to me. Certainly her baby had no complaints as she fell asleep while being wrapped!

Kanga Wrap-2

    Hands free cuddles are fab. I love cuddles!

  • Babywear is great because it means you have your hands free for carrying bags, holding onto other children, pushing a sibling in a buggy etc!

  • I regret not baby wearing with my son. My daughter is 3 weeks old and I love popping her in a sling as does my hubby. It easy and comfortable to do plus it still frees up my hands to be able to give my 3 year old son attention and love while holding his sister.

    I absolutely love having baby (or preschooler most recently) close enough to kiss. You feel a real connection when you’re carrying them in a sling or carrier. I’m expecting twins so babywearing will definitely come in handy keeping my hands free when necessary too!

  • Babywearing was the only way to calm my first baby and it was lovely to have her close to me all the time. I am looking forward to the babywearing cuddles with my second coming soon! Can’t wait to see him and kiss him!

  • I loved holding my son close and handsfree when he was little, but now that he no longer wants to be carried so often, I love enabling other parents to carry their little ones through the Bristol Sling Library. My own experience has inspired me to train as a babywearing consultant.

  • Wish baby wearing had been around 33 years ago, but my daughter and partner baby wear our first grand child now no 2 is due july and slings are at the ready

    The closeness and bonding element.

    I didn’t babywear when my son was little and I really regret it. I really want to start using them now he is a toddler and when the next baby arrives too. I feel like I’ve missed out but better late than never!

    Having my little one as close as possible to my heart!

  • Feeling my baby close from head to toe, and that lovely contented ‘sigh’ she makes when she’s wrapped. It not only helped us bond but saved my back too!

  • Its so convienient. My little girl has cerebral palsy so its fab to be able to push her and pop my son in his sling

  • I just love the opportunities for bonding – you can’t get enough contact time when they’re so little I think ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Closeness, and ease of interaction with baby. Whilst hands are free to do tasks within the home etc if required.

    I’ve never tried it – but would love to with my next baby: I love the idea of the closeness.

  • Having your hands & arms free & being able to go into those little shops that makes it impossible with a pram.

    I’m planning to use a wrap or sling when my little one arrives; I love the thought of being close to my baby while being able to get on with everyday life!

  • I haven’t had my baby yet but feel babywearing will be better for bonding and save me having to take a pram everywhere.

  • im unsure if my youngest will be walking when new baby arrives and dont really want a double so baby wearing all the way for me =) xx

    I love baby wearing. It’s hard to pick just one thing but it makes it much easier to look after my baby and toddler at the same time when I’m on my own with them.

  • I love being extra close to my son! It also means I can get bits and bobs done when baby wants to be close to me!

  • I’m entering to wing this for my mum who is about to be looking after my two young nieces on her own, long-term. She spends a lot of time in her garden – both just enjoying it, and growing and harvesting organic fruit and vegetables. The wrap will be an excellent way for her to bond physically with the youngest child, while the elder girl will be learning the names of the wonderful fruits and veg she’ll be eating each day.

  • due my 3rd in october so will be fab be hands free to hold my son’s hands as well as keeping baby close and safe next to me

    I love holding baby close but being able to get a few things done too

  • loved it with my son and hoping to do it again with 2nd due in october as son in wheelchair so will make things easier xx

  • I hadn’t really thought about it until I became pregnant but since learning more I am determined to ‘babywear’. It seems like the best thing for both mother and baby and helps that bonding process as well as being very practical!

    Feeling close to my baby, still holding that strong bond, and the excuse for more cuddles ๐Ÿ™‚

  • There is nothing more precious than feeling your child snuggle into you whilst you have your hands free to carry on with whats needed

  • sorry about the name but noone knows yet. I have 2 toddlers so babywearing with number 3 is going to be a must! i had the ridgid baby carrier with 1& 2 but would love a proper supportive wrap this time! I hate trying to get around shops with pushchairs, let alone a pushchair and 2 toddlers!

  • I have a 7 week old & a 2 year old so baby wearing has been so useful for settling the baby while dealing with a tantruming toddler!!

  • I love baby wearing it allows you to get on with stuff and keeps you both warm when it’s chilly outside

  • I would have love one of these when my kids were young. My son was 3 when my daughter was born and he still needed a pushchair for longer walks. I ended up buying a double pushchair for just a few months. This would have solved the problem and a lot cheaper as well.

  • I love babywearing for a variety of reasons. I have Fibromyalgia and M.E and I have to hold onto things to get around my house. So having a sling makes it so much easier for me. Plus I find it very bonding for both me and my baby to have her close to my chest.

  • I don’t know if my comment made it onto here so just in case… I am looking forward to having my baby so close to me as I walk about. I am also hopeful that it really is as comfortable as it looks!

  • I am looking forward to babywearing my bump so we can always be close and so that I have my hands free to do things with my 9 year old ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Apart from the obvious closeness, it would be ideal when my baby arrives in August and I have a toddler and a newborn to get around with!
