My Favorite and Frugal Baby Wrap

Over the last four years, I have bought a few different carriers for my babies like the Baby-Bjorn style and the hammock style sling but they always become painful after 30 minutes of wearing them.

I wanted a cheaper and better solution after paying for things that didn't work, so I did some searching on the internet for a cheaper way to carry my baby. And I found it!

I love this wrap. I really, really love this wrap. I can wear Isabella in it all day without back or shoulder pain. In fact, when we went to the fair this weekend she rode in it the entire time (and slept through most of it!). As soon as I put her into it she falls asleep and when she wakes up she is happy. I have fallen in love with babywearing!

This wrap is so great because it evenly distributes the weight across the whole torso instead of just the shoulder area. It's so much more comfortable than anything I've used. I just can't say enough about it! :)

The even better part about this wrap was the cost- I "made" it for $5. No sewing required! Just five yards of gauzy cotton material all wrapped and tied around my waist and shoulders. It is similar to the Moby sling which costs $35.

Here is the tutorial on how to make a no-sew wrap.

Thank you to the Mamatoto Project for all the wonderful information on babywearing!

Not only does this sling work for me, it also serves as a frugal way to carry my baby!
