Solly Wrap Review

The Wrap by Solly Baby

This wonderfully crafted, luxuriously soft wrap is made in The USA. It is one of my favorite carriers, except for one, major drawback. There is only one position, baby facing you. My baby needed to face the world before he was 4 months so there has been many times I’ve put this on and had to take him right back out of it. Still, it remains one of my faves. I really like the company, their founder, their story, the pictures of their family and children’s room..I’m not stalking..I swear! It’s a feel good product, it’s a feel good company.

Although you can use it up to 25lbs, they suggest that the best use is up to 6-9 months. They make it very clear that this product is not meant for any other positions besides facing you. I understand, but I like it so much I had to branch out and try a few. I have used it (shhhh) on the hip, as well as facing out. He LOVED it facing out, and just as important, I loved it. I can see why they don’t suggest the other positions, it’s a safety factor. Forward facing, I couldn’t bend over without Zander falling out! I mostly like to use it for walking outside and upright though so that hasn’t been an issue.

It’s a very easy to wear wrap (once you know how to tie a wrap) and it’s so lightweight that it is perfect for this mama who runs HOT and lives in Southern California. It can be folded (or mushed up) and thrown in a diaper bag or stroller. I’ve used it as a stroller shade, a blanket, a burp cloth.. hey, they don’t advertise that either but you have to be creative.

Some of the highlights of this product are:
  • The feel. It is so soft, lightweight, yet strong.
  • The color choices, beautiful.
  • Made ‘with love’ in The USA.
  • Great choice for warmer climates.
  • Only one position suggested.
  • Perfect for newborns through 6-9 months.
  • Easy to travel with.
  • Average price is $65.

If you think the Moby is too thick and lacks stretchability, or you find the Boba way too elastic, this wrap is for you.  It’s right in between when comparing elasticity.

Lastly, they have the most attractive color choices. I’m a sucker for soft, aesthetically pleasing fabrics, and maybe that is why this is one of my top choices.
