Stretchy Wraps


Stretchy wraps are exactly what they say on the tin – wraps that stretch. They are essentially long pieces of jersey cotton fabric, of varying thicknesses (and lengths) that are wrapped around the back, torso and shoulders in order to create a space to snuggle baby closely.

A stretchy wrap is the most snuggly option to recreate that womb like feeling that your little one just loves. It holds baby snug to your chest so you can really get to know each other. Amazing for skin to skin too.

We have a range of brands in the library, all with different qualities and characteristics and

from different price ranges. All our stretchies are hired out for free for 3 weeks for babies under 4 months old. Outside of this offer, stretchy hires are half price compared to our other carriers, to allow all parents to experience the beautiful closeness these carriers provide.

We currently have Kari-Me, Boba, Moby, NCT Caboo, Caboo DX, Victoria Sling Lady, Hugabub and Hana Wrap.

Woven Wraps


Woven wraps are similar to stretchies in that they are long pieces of fabric that are wrapped and knotted in a variety of ways to create a supportive pocket for babies and toddlers to be held next to their caregiver. The difference from stretchies are that the fabric in this case is woven fabric and has very little 'give' in comparison to jersey wraps. 

In the library we currently have – Little Frog, Girasol and Lenny Lamb in sizes 4, 6 and 7.

Mei Tai


Mei Tai's are essentially a square or rectangular 'body' of fabric, with four long straps attached at each corner, 2 of which wrap around the waist and two longer ones that go over the shoulders and around the body. 

In the library we currently have mei tai's from Babyhawk, HopTye, MNS & Snugiwraps.
