The first Solly Baby wrap was created in 2011 when Elle Rowley took to making her own wrap after the birth of her second child, Solomon. This is where the name Solly Baby comes from. She found existing carriers painful and unattractive, and wanted to create something comfortable and stylish to wear. Solly Baby believes closeness is what matters, and that the power of touch provides a strength and comfort whilst encouraging bonding by experiencing life together. They believe that taking on the role of mother, father or caregiver does not replace you as an individual, but adds to it. The Solly Baby Wraps are designed for the first year or up to 25 lbs, with the majority of babies getting the most use during the first nine months.
Constructed from a custom-made, 100% Certified Lenzing Modal, this eco-friendly Lenzing is sustainable, made from Austrian beechwood trees and manufactured in Los Angeles. The material is incredibly lightweight, it feels cool to the touch and gets softer with each wash, which is impressive, as it arrives already feeling so soft that it’s difficult to keep your hands off it. Do not let the soft texture lead you to believe that this material is delicate, however - it is strong enough to be dried in a conventional dryer on low heat without wearing down and can easily bare the weight of the child. There is a self-enclosing pocket at the end of the wrap for compact and tidy storage.
So, like all baby wraps, it’s going to take a little patience and practice to nail to art of wearing this one, but once you have got the hang of things, it is quite straight forward (don’t worry, there are instructions and videos to help you get it right). Solly Baby claims that wearing a wrap can help reduce infant crying by 43% and reduces rates of postpartum depression. It is Hip Healthy Certified and calms gas and reflux. Everything from the fabric to the packaging is made in the US and dyed with environmentally-friendly dyes, and it comes in 27 soft, chic colours to choose from. Whether you are a complete newbie to the baby wrap or an earth mother with triplets wrapped around you, these high-quality and super-soft baby carrier wraps won’t let you down. RRP $65
