Hip Baby Wrap

One thing I love about babywearing is how it allows me to stay connected to my children, even when out and about. It could be absolute chaos all around, but my child can be safely snuggled up to me, and I don't have to worry about something happening to them.

Hip Baby Wraps are a nice, light-weight cotton and available in many colours. I was sent a wrap in the colour scheme "Ocean" for review. It didn't have a size listed, but it was the same length as my size 6 wraps. It was even nice and pretty hanging to dry!


Hip Baby Wraps can help you provide that closeness and peace of mind. In fact, if you're an eco-conscious person, they can give you peace of mind on more than just the closeness of your child as they use non-toxic, eco-friendly dye on their lovely 100%, locally-sourced cotton wraps. Better yet, these wraps are hand made in India, and fairly traded.

This wrap was very different than other wraps I've had, as this wrap is much lighter. I'm used to the heavier, thicker cotton wraps, or the hemp and cotton blend. Wrapping with this was a bit shocking at first because of how light it was!


Squiggle wasn't the most cooperative that day, but I was at a local babywearing meeting, so I was able to borrow other adorable baby models for you (with permission to share,of course!) :

Lovely little one helping me model a FWCC
(In case you were wondering, it was really cold in there when we first arrived, so I wanted my arms covered!)
I didn't just borrow babies for pictures, though... I shared the wrap and borrowed mamas, too!


I really liked how light this wrap was, and think it would be a fabulous summer wrap. Obviously it works any time of the year, but I feel like this would definitely have the upper hand compared to some of the thicker wraps when it gets hot and sticky outside! Check out their store to see all their colours available!

Hip Baby Wraps were also generous enough to offer a wrap for one of my readers. Giveaway is open to the US only.

  18. Rocky Mountain is my favorite one. I love blue, but from these wraps the gray one is the best for me.

  19. What I would like to learn about babywearing, is how to use the wrap to improve your posture, because you can't really have it tight because of the baby there. Is there any particular wrapping technique that helps with posture without squishing the little one?

    1. All of these pictures have the child wrapped very snug. It doesn't squish the babe. :) If you keep the child close to you and keep your passes snug while wrapping, you're pretty much forced into good posture.

  22. I love being able to get things done while still carrying my needy little guy around. And it also seems to deter strangers from touching him while we are out and about. ;)

  28. I love how babywearing allows me freedom when we're out and about (no strollers), how it puts my kiddo to sleep, and allows you to be hands free while being super snuggly with a baby.

  29. I like babywearing to be able to keep my child close, by having her in a wrap it's a lot easier on me than carrying her in arms and I can get some amount of stuff done.

    I really like the Turquoise Hip Baby Wrap!

  32. I like how calm babies stay when they're tucked in a wrap.

  33. I like that I can snuggle my sweet baby and get housework done at the same time. I'm not very good at wrapping, so I would definitely like to get better and maybe learn some new carries.

  36. I have never tried a wrap before. I started baby wearing to keep my baby close and comfortable and be hand free. I love how it gives us a greater bond.

  37. I like the jungle wrap. I enjoy wearing my daughter, but feel very unsure about the woven wraps. Mine gathers dust on the bookshelf because I'm so timid.
