First of all, let me say that this carrier works great. Let me caution you, though, that this is not exactly a sling carrier in a technical sense. It's basically a long strand of elastic cloth that you wrap around your body a certain way to create spaces for your baby to sit in. Like I said, it works pretty well for the most part. But before you buy this, I'd like you to think about these facts. You might think they're stupid but I wish I knew them before I purchased it.
1. You can't just pick this up and put the baby in it like most sling carriers(at least the ones I've seen). For the most part, it's not that big of a deal to wrap this around your body and put the baby in but it does take some time and there are times I wish it wasn't as involved to set it up.
2. It takes some practice to get the tightness just right. If you wrap it too tight, your baby will pretty much suffocate... probably not... but you get the idea. If it's too loose, then the baby slides down. It'll still hold the baby but your baby will be on your stomach depending on his/her size. It's a problem when you have a newborn like me.
3. Inevitably, if you repeat the process of taking the baby in and out for whatever reason for a few hours, the carrier will get loose. At that point, you'll have to undo the carrier then rewrap it.
So basically, it all came down to convenience for me and my wife.Read more ›
~The fabric is so long that it drags on the floor as you put it on, which is gross if you are in a public place or the parking lot of the grocery store
~The same thing that makes it so comfortable (the fabric stretched evenly across your arms and middle) also can make it very hot to wear when walking through the mall, for example. The baby is nice and toasty, but it feels like you are wearing a little radiator sometimes
~When baby is crying it feels like it takes forever to get it on
~If you wear the baby for a long time they can shift in the wrap as time goes on and you may have to readjust the baby (be careful as you do so, if you aren't paying attention and baby makes a sudden movement he/she could suddenly pop out a side where you didn't think they could)
Apart from those things, I do love this wrap and highly recommend it. We are going overseas next month and I am taking the wrap with me so I can comfortably wear baby on the plane!
I was so excited to try it out with my five week old. The instructions were so easy to follow, and it was a snap to tie on. Putting my little one inside was a cinch from the first time. I love how he is snuggled inside and secure, and I can truly have my hands free. I have used ring and fitted slings in the past, as well as Snugli type carriers, but I really wanted my baby to be held closer to me and not lost in the fabric or limbs dangling. When I heard about the Sleepy Wrap, I had to try it. My friends from my Moms message board just raved about theirs, and now I know why! It's so perfect. The main concern I had at first was that the material looked heavy and would be hot. We live in the (hot and humid) South. This fabric is awesome- totally breathable, light, stretchy. I can't say enough about my Sleepy Wrap! I only wish I would have had one with my first two babies.
I love that the wrap is easy to use, but it is cumbersome when out in public (when you put it on in a parking lot you have to be VERY careful not to let it dip down and touch the yucky asphalt). It is also thick material making it impossible to use when the temperature rises. I mostly used mine indoors. I could do all my chores and my son would happily snooze or coo at me the whole time. I could also breastfeed in it which was a huge plus. It meant that I could eat dinner at a table again.
Now my that my son is older (10 months and 23 lbs) I do not use the wrap as much. Times I use it for now is when we go grocery shopping and he is too tired to sit in the seat. Also when he is sick and just needs extra cuddles. The wrap is now carefully folded in his closet and if he never is worn in it again I know that his future siblings will. Well worth purchasing.
4 stars because of thick material and difficult to put on when rushed and in unsanitary area.

The baby wrap is great, once it is on. We found it cumbersome to put on in public. It does require two people to unravel to wear. My grand baby does enjoy it on Mom or Dad.Published on June 10, 2014 by Mary Rios
We are not really pleased with this product. It is not quick to use and it does not feel secure no matter how tight you have it. Read morePublished on April 13, 2014 by Joeyc
No matter how tight I wrapped it still slides down an "head support" was awkward I bought it to go out with, but I wouldn't trust it outside the house.Published on February 1, 2014 by malessa Jenkins
