I received a free Baby More Co. Baby Wrap in exchange for my honest opinions of the product.
When Aubrey came along I tried a conventional baby carrier, and she screamed every single time I put her in it. I gave up on the baby carrier and donated it. For the most part life without a baby carrier has been okay, but as Aubrey has gotten bigger I’ve started to have a lot of back pain after carrying her long distances. Most days she wants to run or walk beside me, but I carry her a lot if she tires out on a long walk or if we are in a crowded place where I don’t want to risk her running off. Strollers aren’t an option because she’s already figured out how to undo the belt. My super speedy toddler can wrangle herself out of the stroller and take off running so fast I’m playing catch up to stop her.
When I was offered the opportunity to test out a Baby More Co. Baby Wrap I decided this might just be my answer to my problems.
This particular wrap can be used for both babies and toddlers up to 32lbs. I was intrigued by the weight limit, so I decided to give it a try. Aubrey has always been on the small side, and at 23 months she weighs the same as my friend’s 7 month old, not quite 24lbs. She’s no where near the weight limit for the baby wrap, so it might just work.

I tried the Baby Wrap on one of my oldest daughter’s dolls for practice until I was comfortable using it, and I chose a doll that was actually a tad bit larger than either of my girls were as newborns (we have photos of each girl with the doll to prove it!). The included instructions were great, but it took me a few tries to get the technique down.
Once I was satisfied that I could properly tie the wrap to securely hold the baby, I asked my friend to join me for a walk to try out the Baby Wrap with her 7 month old. I carried the 7 month old (who weighs the same as my toddler) around for an hour with no problems. She was tucked safely and securely against my chest while we went for a walk around the local park, and she even fell asleep snugly tucked into the Baby Wrap. We were both happy with the results, and my friend was sold on buying one of her own. In my opinion the Baby Wrap is a great way to keep your baby safe, secure, and provide the nurturing that comes with carrying your baby so close.
Unfortunately my experience with Aubrey and the Baby Wrap wasn’t so enjoyable. She may weigh the same as the 7 month old, but the experience was completely different.
First, I had trouble getting a squirming toddler properly situated inside the wrap. After a few tries we made it happen, and things only went downhill from there. Aubrey’s constant squirming continued to loosen the wrap no matter how tightly I wrapped it and tied it around my waist. Within a few minutes she was riding dangerously low, in my opinion, practically sitting on my hips. I attempted to use the wrap two more time with Aubrey, and each time ended with the same results. I eventually gave up and decided the Baby Wrap doesn’t work with a squirming toddler, at least not mine!
If you’re looking for a great, comfortable wrap to use with a smaller baby I would definitely recommend the Baby More Co. Baby Wrap. But, if you’re looking for a wrap to use with toddler like mine who likes to squirm, I would have to say look elsewhere.
