Learn step by step on how to use Sollybaby wraps by Clarendon Hills chiropractor.
Below, Dr. Lauren Molinaro at Root and Bloom Chiropractic demonstrates how to properly wear your Sollybaby wrap and the benefits on baby wearing for moms and dad’s too.
Replicates being in utero. Most babies that are wrapped, often feel calm and secure all the time because this really replicates being in utero for 9 months. They knew moms voice during this time and felt safe, secure and warm.
A way for dad’s to bond deeper. Dad’s who wear their baby in wraps or carriers allows them to bond with baby on a much deeper level.
Mom’s summer accessory. Some moms like to wear these Sollybaby wraps right over a tank top as their summer accessory so they’re ready to wear baby at any time.
Great position for breastfeeding. As long as mom and baby are comfortable, breastfeeding while wrapped is the perfect on the go breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Make sure baby is always visible and kissable. What that means is you can look down and see baby’s face and that you are able to kiss them.
Things to make sure: any hair is removed from the front; no thick clothing that could potentially constrict their airways.
Pro Tip: With baby sitting on one side, next time make sure to switch sides. This helps protect your own back. Also, even more importantly, this helps babies range of motion in their necks. Just like us adults, if baby is always turning their head one way, going the opposite way would then cause pain.
Sometimes, when we see moms come in with breastfeeding challenges due to neck restrictions, they are often due to one sided slings.
Babies facing out VS facing in: we always recommend baby facing in toward your chest. This really strengthens the bond and connection between carrier. This is also an alternative to tummy time. This strengthens baby’s neck and head muscles which is huge for development.
Baby’s facing out can sometimes get over stimulated with seeing lights and sounds all the time. Facing out can also contribute to hip displacuah. Which is instability of the hips with babies because there is no support on their knees, hips or legs.
What ages are best for wraps? Infant to newborn. Carriers with a soft buckle or similar, you do not want to start using it until baby is able to sit up on their own. Because babies are unable to stabilize themselves on their sides yet, which those carriers have no support on the sides. Where a wrap is stabilized within all the areas of their trunk.
How to know when baby is too big for a wrap? Babies will start to weigh you down. If they are too low and you can’t kiss them, it’s time they outgrew the wrap.
Is there a safe way to wear twins at once?
