SafeMama Review: Maya Wrap (giveaway)

By Kristie Turck •  Published 12/10/08 •  3 min read

When my son was born, I didn’t really get into the wrap scene, as I was always afraid of him falling out of the bottom of one.  We had a Bjorn, but he was never a fan of it.  I preferred carrying him around if I needed to, only adding a hotsling to our collection when he was able to sit up and hang on.

With number two on the way, I know that I’m going to need something if I’m ever going to have use of my hands ever again.   And I will admit, that while I wasn’t too into attachment parenting before my son was born, and now I still cart him around as often as possible.  With this one, I plan on doing things a little differently.  And did I mention that I like having the use of my hands?

The problem is that there are about 8 million different types of slings and wraps out there and I don’t have disposable income.

I was lucky enough to be able to try out the new organic version of the Maya Wrap.   The Maya wrap is a ring sling and is incredibly easy to put on and cinch up when you need adjustment.  While I didn’t have a baby to try it out on, I was able to easily get it on with one hand and adjust it without too much fuss, something I know that I’ll definitely need the ability to do when I have an infant. These are also great for nursing, as there’s a lot of fabric so that you can nurse discreetly in public.

The new organic line comes in three styles, all of which are pretty nice.   I’d definitely want to snag one for myself.
