Baby wraps have been an essential part of holding, nursing, feeding, and mothering a baby since time began in most cultures. Wraps provide a unique closeness which develops the bond between mother and baby as the warmth and the beating of the mother’s heart provides security and comfort. Using baby wraps are the most simple, yet effective way to keep up the warm intuitive bond a baby has with its mother.
The Ultimate baby wrap is designed as a stand alone brand name, to securely hold your baby close to you and can be used during their first year of life or beyond. It has been proven a number of times that a baby is most content when held against your chest. It has also been reported that babies who are carried cry less, are healthier by gaining weight quicker, have better motor skills, they get a better view of the world rather than knee height in a stroller, they tend to be more independent as they grow (less clingy), sleep better, and are generally a lot happier in themselves being close to you. So what's not to like about a baby wrap?
A baby wrap will also help with multi-tasking by leaving your hands free to do other things. And the Ultimate Baby Wrap is more supportive for your back then some other baby wraps on the market and also perfect for your baby’s developing spine as it doesn’t put excess weight or stress on either you or your baby. This is an important point to make because when searching for a baby wrap, you need to find one that is sturdy and supportive with even distribution of your baby’s weight across both of your shoulders rather than the majority of the weight on one shoulder.
So let's take a closer look at 2 of the top recommended baby wraps on the market:

…it's the most comfortable carrier you'll ever wear. The soft t-shirt type material does not create a single pressure point, the babies weight… gets evenly distributed …It’s versatile. As an infant they are cradled inside in a lying down or diagonal position, then, upright and facing in. Later, as with my baby, on the side hip position. They can also face out or ride on your back. All this with the same tie, which, I might add at this time, is not complicated once you do it 2 or 3 times. it takes about 20 seconds to get on. When baby is in it, they feel the same thing they felt in the womb - weightlessness, warmth, and the familiar pattern of your everyday movements. They are either quietly alert or asleep. On the outside, it looks like you're wearing a little cozy cocoon. You can nurse with it on… Not a day goes by when I'm not approached on the street by strangers asking about this wrap… You will not regret this purchase.
…You can put your baby into the wrap in any of the 5 positions after only having put the wrap on once. …At 3 mo old, she still seems to need the swaddley feeling of the wrap. After being put inside, she's asleep with a little dancing and shhhh-ing in just a couple of minutes. This is the best product I have purchased for my baby. I have bought this product for 2 friends since purchasing my own, and will continue to give this as a shower gift to every new mom. It has truly made a huge difference in my ability to not only get things done and go about the day, but also in my ability to soothe and mother my daughter in a way that she loves.

The Moby wrap swaddles your baby snuggly to you… It spreads the weight out evenly across your back and shoulders and feels much better for longer periods of time… There are a variety of ways to wear your baby with this carrier… Being able to pull the cloth completely over her so she can sleep soundly is a plus. The instructions are easy to follow… The Moby wrap is easy to clean with being machine washable and dryable… The Moby wrap was an excellent purchase. Putting our daughter in it and walking around or bouncing on an exercise ball was one of the few ways to calm her during the height of her colic. Our daughter is now 5-months old and still enjoys the Moby. We expect to continue to use our Moby wrap for many more months.
…This wrap also allows SO many different positions. when I know my daughter wants to be awake and checking things out I face her out, and vice versa facing in. so far her favorite is the hug hold and lotus hold… theres about 8 different holds which is great..
