As midwives who carry out postnatal home visits, we deal with mothers
and new babies every day. As mothers we understand the frustration of a
baby who won’t settle or sleep well during the day or who likes “to be
held” and the challenges of dealing with a crying baby. We also
know that mothers with more than one child need to have their hands
free, especially when out and about with a toddler and a baby.
Baby wraps are fast becoming the preferred method of carrying your baby
(as opposed to commercially sold slings and other baby pouches or
carriers). They not only enable you to be completely hands free, but
make your baby feel safe and secure. We have seen first-hand the
calming effect of putting a fussing baby in a wrap. Research shows that
having a baby close to the mother improves their growth (this is
especially true when maintaining skin to skin contact) and that
carrying them upright improves “colic” symptoms.
we have seen the numerous benefit of these wraps, Motherhood Matters
has decided to stock and sell a very basic wrap (with no fancy edging
or emblems). Our wraps are soft and comfortable and distribute the
baby’s weight evenly to avoid back problems. They are also breathable
and easy to clean and there are no difficult buckles, buttons or
fasteners. The wraps are machine washable at 40 degrees and can be
ironed with a warm iron.
Although we stock a variety of colours, please email us to check
our current availability. For further information or to place your
order, please email Lynn Keck: email@example.com
