Baby Wraps: One Baby Carrier from Newborn to Toddlerhood
Wraps are the most versatile of the woven baby carriers. The way they wrap around you and your little one allows the fabric to mould to your body shape while evenly distributing your child’s weight; making carrying them close a continually comfortable experience. Baby wraps are easily shared by both parents, with no fiddly re-adjustment of buckles and straps needed.
Baby wraps are infinitely adjustable, so if you are looking for a baby carrier with the most comfortable & snug fit for front, hip and back carries, then this is a great choice for you.
Note: Our woven wraps are suitable for newborns weighing 8lbs+ and can be used with even smaller babies after seeking the advice of a healthcare professional.
The best part? With one woven baby wrap, you and your partner can carry your child for your family’s whole babywearing journey.
The Oscha ring slings have been approved by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute as a ‘Hip Healthy’ product, this means it will hold your child in the ‘M’ position which is optimum for hip development.
