Are baby wraps good for newborns?
If you’re wondering if baby wraps are good for newborns, the answer is yes! We know safety is the top priority for parents when choosing products for their newborn. Not only can baby wraps be safe for newborns when worn correctly, but they also provide a handful of benefits for both baby and baby wearer. Carrying around the weight of a newborn all day can inevitably lead to strain, so why not get some added support and free up your hands to make life easier?
Wondering just how much you can benefit from a baby wrap? Here are some of our top benefits of babywearing:
- Baby development: There are many ways that babywearing can promote social and cognitive development for your baby. The close contact of babywearing promotes bonding and naturally enhances your baby’s ability to develop social and cognitive skills.
- Calmer baby: Not only does being close to mom provide comfort to a newborn baby, but babywearing can also help with digestion too. If you’ve got a baby who suffers from reflux or colic, babywearing after feeding can help calm your baby and promote better digestion.
- Breastfeeding in public: Life with a newborn means plenty of time spent nursing your baby. More likely than not, you’ll find yourself needing to nurse in public. A baby wrap can help get your baby in a feeding position while also keeping you covered and comfortable.
The benefits of a baby wrap don’t stop there when it comes to Tushbaby’s ‘Snug’ baby wrap. Its one-of-a-kind design brings the benefits of both a baby wrap and a hip seat carrier together for the ultimate babywearing experience. Check out the Snug and see for yourself just how easy babywearing can be without the complicated twists and turns of a traditional baby wrap.
Are wraps or carriers better for newborns?
When it comes to a carrier for a newborn, you’ll need to be sure the one you choose can provide enough support for safe posture. For newborns that have not yet developed the muscles to hold their heads up on their own, support is extra important when it comes to carriers and wraps.
For this reason, wraps tend to be the better option for a newborn.
Unlike car seats that can come with an added newborn insert, carriers are often designed to accommodate a particular age. For example, many structured carriers are designed for use once your baby is older and can sit up on their own.
How long can a newborn be in a wrap?
As long as you’re safely wearing your wrap, there is no one hard-set rule for the amount of time your baby can or should be in a wrap. If your baby is happy, safe, and comfortable (and you are too), you can wear a newborn in a wrap for as long as that lasts. You may find in time that your back or shoulders need a bit of a break. With Tushbaby’s Snug wrap carrier that can attach to any Tushbaby Hip Seat, you’ll find you can babywear for even longer with the added ergonomic support that the waistband provides. By wearing your hipseat high and tight, you’re providing your back, neck, and arms some much-needed support for wearing your baby throughout the day, while keeping your hands free with The Snug.
What is the best fabric for a baby wrap for newborns?
There are plenty of fabrics that make for a good baby wrap. The best baby wrap for newborns will be made from fabric that’s breathable, comfortable, and washable too.
What to consider when choosing a baby wrap for a newborn
- Comfort: Babywearing is all about making life easier, and a comfortable wrap will help you do just that. Look for a wrap that provides plenty of support for both you and your baby, like the Tushbaby’s Snug wrap.
- Safety: A top priority for all parents, finding a baby wrap that is safe is critical. This also means you need to feel confident in your ability to put on the wrap so that it’s safe for your baby. Be sure to practice putting on your wrap before it comes time to babywear.
- Size versatility: Having a wrap that fits various sizes will help accommodate your changing body postpartum and also allow those taking care of your baby to get use out of the wrap too. If a nanny takes care of your newborn, you can simply pass along the wrap so your baby continues to have that comfort of babywearing. Tushbaby’s hipseat carrier and Snug attachment wrap are the perfect carriers for just that as their adjustable waistband and buckles allow you to adjust as needed, ensuring every caregiver’s comfort.
Wrap baby snugly with the Tushbaby Snug
Tushbaby’s new wrap carrier Tushbaby Snug has changed the game for baby wearing when it comes to wraps. This crafty creation has buckles to attach onto any Tushbaby carrier, to make the ultimate wrap/hip seat carrier combo to keep you carrying longer and more comfortably—and now, hands-free.
The first of its kind, the Snug revolutionizes the simplicity and functionality of a baby wrap. Designed to go solo or accommodate a hip seat and wrap combination, it’s easy to use and easy to get on and off with its simple wrap and buckle design, taking the complication out of a comfortable wrap carrier. With the added storage and support of the Tushbaby Hip Seat attached, you can securely stash your things and activate parent mode.
Here’s how to put on your Snug wrap, with your baby facing in and facing out: To put on your Snug attachment wrap, you’ll first buckle/attach it to your Tushbaby. Then, put on your hipseat carrier high and tight around your waist. This will provide your lower back some much-needed support that you wouldn’t get from a traditional wrap. Next, carefully place your baby on the Tushbaby, then the soft fabric straps of the Snug wrap around both shoulders and buckle. Once buckled and tightened, you and your baby will be ready to go!
With adjustable buckles, it will be easy to keep your wrap snug without having to go through the traditional process of wrapping an excessive amount of fabric around your body. Easy, right? And the hipseat pockets can be used to store your baby necessities, keys, phone, wallet, and more! This bonus feature is a game changer that you wouldn’t get from a traditional baby wrap, which is what makes The Snug the best baby wrap for newborns.
