For the last two months I have been using the Kangawrap and I have to say it has by far been the best baby product I have ever had. Especially having two babies under 18 months it has been lovely to be able to have the closeness of a newborn whilst having both hands free to play with Ami. I have used this daily and really do not know how I could have coped without it!
The great thing about Kangawrap it’s not just a wrap but has other health benefits especially for babies that were born premature. It was developed from kangaroo care which came from Bogota in the 1980s where they run out of incubators for the premature babies so they strapped the babies to the mothers. Some of the health benefits for premature babies are as follows:
• Better weight gain
• Shorter hospital stay
• Fewer breathing problems
• Less crying, quieter sleep
• Better temperature control
• More successful breastfeeding
Research conducted from the Kangaroo care by midwives at Pembury saw that many of the wraps were hot and heavy so they then developed the Kangawrap a lighter and more comfortable wrap.
The wrap is also very easy to wear, after a few times trying it out before putting little bear I was confidant to try it out. He felt so secure and fell asleep straight away. We often use the wrap when traveling or out shopping, I then don’t have to push a heavy double around and have the closeness of my baby.
I really recommend this product, it retails at under £50 a reasonable price for a baby wrap. You can purchase one on their website, they also sell a Joey wrap for children so you little ones can be just like their parents.
