Answers to your frequently asked questions

Is the Mommy wrap® hands free?

The Mommy Wrap® can be used for a variety of ways to make mom life easier. Created by of Mom of 3 Colic Babies, the Mommy Wrap is designed with the comfort of mom and baby combined. You will find that the Mommy Wrap is practical, functional, and fashionable all while having the ability to soothe your baby!

The Mommy Wrap® is not a baby carrier nor is it 100% hands free, but it still helps free up a hand for mom.   Always keep a resting hand under the baby's bum for extra support.  The Mommy Wrap® is a cardigan that helps hold baby & helps mom take care of the rest of the household.  Make sure you are always cautious and ensure your baby is held firmly.  The Mommy Wrap® is not a 100% hands-free device.  It is to be used as a simple cardigan that Mom can wear with or without baby that adds support when holding or soothing baby, convenient pockets, and functional pacifier connectors.  All to help make mom life easier. A mom should always take extra care holding her baby to ensure baby is safe.

Sizing recommendations for mom

The Mommy Wrap® is true to size.  We suggest to order the same size a mom would order in a good old fashioned ladies' T-shirt.  In fact, it runs a tad big, but we did this with intention.  The Mommy Wrap is perfect for transitioning bodies with postpartum bellies and fluctuating chest sizes. If a mom is in between sizes, order a size down.  For example, if a mom fluctuates between a medium and large, order the medium.

sizing Recommendations for Baby 

Newborn Hold/Skin to Skin:

This hold is best suited for babies up to 13-15 pounds depending on length of child.  Make sure baby is scooped in a fetal position with knees tucked into body. No need to straddle the baby's legs and displace natural positions.

For bigger and older babies in an upright position:

Best suited for babies up to 18 pounds. Place baby in upright position and straddle baby's legs over Mom's belly. Tuck the excess fabric underneath as high a possible.

Cradle Hold:

Best suited for babies up to 23 pounds. Place baby sideways across Mom's body and tuck the excess fabric under baby.

Hip Hold:

Best suited for babies between 15-23 pounds. Ensure baby can hold head up on its own before trying this move.  Simply place the baby on your hip, connect fabric from the same side where baby is sitting to the opposite side's inside button.  Tuck the excess fabric under baby's bum.


Steps to help support baby inside The Mommy Wrap® with the Newborn Hold

1. Take the elastic on one side of The Mommy Wrap® and connect it to the inside button on the opposite side.
2. Choose an elastic connector from the other side and connect it to the outside button on the opposite side.
There are different choices of elastic and buttons on each side to accommodate changing postpartum bellies and growing babies.
3. Tuck the excess fabric under the baby's bum as high as you can.

Happy thoughts from our clients

Mom of 4 Kiddos

I LOVE The Mommy Wraps. Just ordered my third design today!  I've been wearing them for 4 years now and will continue to forever.  I've been able to have support through two newborns, while taking care of my other children at the same time. Not sure what I would do without it.

A NICU Mama Must Have

Mommy Wrap Reviews

Pumping is one thing a NICU mama can do for her little. My son is fed through a feeding tube so I pump breast milk for him. Pumping often times leaves you exposed and although we have a private room, nurses and therapists are in and out constantly. The Mommy Wrap allows me to feel covered up while pumping. Often times nurses can’t even tell I’m pumping right away. It also keeps me warm in these chilly sterile hospital rooms. WIN-WIN!

I love my wrap. I wear it at least 3X a week! It fits perfect and the extra pockets help with my mask too which I tend to misplace all the time and you have to wear 24/7 in the hospital. I’ve thought about attaching the mask to a pacifier holder.

Lost When I don't have it on

Mommy Wrap Reviews

I had my baby a week ago and already ordered a second one of these! I have worn the one I have every day and find that I am lost when I don’t have it on. It’s amazing how just a few pockets and loops can make mom life so much easier!! I love that it’s stylish enough that you can wear it out, and comfortable enough that it feels like you’re wearing a light hoodie. I highly recommend the Mommy Wrap to anyone that can use an extra hand throughout the day. You don’t need to be a mom to wear this!

Bought one in Every Color

Mommy Wrap Reviews

I will have to admit, when I received The Mommy Wrap as a gift, I had no idea what it was or how it worked. The Mommy Wrap has truly been a Godsend. It has helped me in so many ways. Being a mom of a newborn cannot be done without this sweater! Okay.... it can, but I will tell you first that this cardigan is SO helpful. If you are considering buying one as a gift, DEFINITELY do so. You would be giving the best gift ever and I am so thankful my own mother bought me one! I now buy this for everyone I know.

Best Invention for a Sick Family

Mommy Wrap Reviews

I can't believe just how useful The Mommy Wrap while my toddler was in the hospital.  Not to mention all the times I was sick with a sick babe at home. Seriously having all the pockets made the biggest difference in the world. Since both the baby and I couldn't breathe when laying flat on our backs, we relied on sitting in the rocker upright. Thankfully, the Mommy Wrap has the convenient connectors, so I was able to fall asleep in the rocker holding baby and not worry about him falling out of my arms. SERIOUSLY the best invention ever. Thank you for getting me through this week!!

Instantly Calms my Child

When my 19 month old wants to cuddle and be held all day, the wrap provided a light weight blanket for her to feel snuggled against me and comforted. Helps keep my sanity in place and avoid a toddler breakdown, I just wrap The Mommy Wrap around her and she instantly calms down. I love it.

I love the Pockets!

Mommy Wrap Reviews

When running errands with my baby and holding hands with my other kids, the last thing I want to carry around is a heavy diaper bag. I was able to put my keys, wallet, phone, sippy cup, a snack & tissues all in the pockets, and scoop up my baby when he wants to be carried.

I am SOOOO in love with The Mommy Wrap

Mommy Wrap review

I ordered the White Aztec and and SO in love with this wrap. I wear it everywhere and get compliments all the time.  Plus, I love the deep pockets! This is an absolute must for all moms!

Mom of 3 little boys

Mommy Wrap Testimonial

I don't know how I could have gotten through the last few months without the Mommy Wrap! I am an RN and this cardigan is just genius! I have been able to focus more time on my two growing boys (2 and 4 yrs old), while also taking care of my newborn baby boy who has acid reflux... so needless to say, he is needy. I am happy to say this cardigan helps me to accomplish what I need without taking up too much of my valuable time. Especially during witching hour! Thank you so much for inventing this!
