The Best Baby Wrap Ever!

Alright all you baby mama's, you have got to check this out! This is the most comfortable, most inexpensive baby wrap you will ever see! I just made this yesterday and have used it soo much already, I can do laundy and dishes with it on because I can bend way over and the baby doesn't budge.  Can you tell I'm excited about it? I have a store bought Mei Tei type sling but my back aches soo much by the end of the day, plus Maddy gets scrunched down in it after awhile.  To make this all you need is 5 yards of fabric by 30 inches.  You'll want a fabric with a little bit of stretch to it. I used an old jersey knit bed sheet that I had on hand. I'm not super picky about color because you can't beat free-ninety-nine (those are clouds on the sheets, not clorox spots, just to clarify).
Step number one (after you get your fabric cut and sewn together). Take the middle of the fabric and hold it at your waist.
Take the tails and throw them up around your back criss-crossed. Does that make sense? You'll want to pull it a little tighter in the next step.
Then you take the tails over your shoulder and . .  (Please excuse my mini-assistant, she wants to demonstrate as well.)
Tuck the tails under the strip of fabric that is around your waist.
Now your going to take the tails and cross them and then . .
Tie a double knot around your back.
Pick up your little schmootzy-poo and put her legs in the straps that went over your shoulders.
Now your going to take the fabric that was around your waist and pull it up over the baby as far up as you want to go.
And there you have it, the best baby wrap ever!
Thanks to my cousin Chels for sending me the instructions on how to do this.  Every mom needs to know this!

And since we're on the subject of baby slings, you've got to check out this video!


  1. I knew when I told you about this you would lOVE it! ISN'T IT THE BEST THING IN THE ENTIRE WORLD?!?!?!?!? I LOVE IT! You wait till you use it at Disneyland or something, its amazing. your shoulders are fine, you are all good! Also, if you go to they have other wraps that hinge on this wrap, i.e. hands free nursing, back carry, side carry, etc. I only use the front wrap cross (what you are doing) but it is the best thing ever! The babe just sleeps all day in it! It rocks, no kiddin!

  2. Thanks for the step by step instructions! I am always facinated with these wraps, but could never figure them out. Awesome!

  3. I love these types of wraps! I used either something like this or my mai tai (from Etsy) all the time. And isn't that video hysterical?

  4. Thank You!!
