Choosing a Babywearing Wrap for Summer
Time Babywearing is a wonderful way to bond with your baby and keep them close to you while you enjoy the outdoors. But when the temperature rises, you might wonder how to choose a babywearing wrap that is comfortable and breathable for both of you. Here are some tips to help you find the perfect summer wrap: ##
Consider the material
The material of the wrap affects how warm or cool it feels on your skin and your baby's. Some materials are more breathable and moisture-wicking than others, which means they allow air to circulate and prevent sweating.
Some of the best materials for summer wraps are:
- Linen is a natural fiber that is lightweight, durable, and has a cooling effect. It also has antibacterial properties and can block UV rays. Linen blend wraps are ideal for hot and humid climates, as they can absorb moisture without feeling damp. Linen wraps may feel stiff at first, but they soften with use and washing.
- Tencel is a type of fabric that is known for being hypoallergenic, silky soft, and breathable. Tencel Lyocell uses a sustainably sourced and environmentally responsible process that includes dissolving wood pulp in a nontoxic organic solvent to create the fibers. It is also breathable, silky soft & cozy, breathable and is cool to the touch
- Bamboo is hypoallergenic and gentle on the skin, with a silky touch and a natural sheen. Bamboo wraps are not only breathable, babies don’t get sweaty in them, it’s better for baby eczema, but also last longer due to stretch. Bamboo is 3 degrees cooler than cotton, while also being hypoallergenic
Consider the weave
The weave of the wrap refers to how the threads are interlaced to form the fabric. The weave affects the texture, thickness, stretchiness, and airflow of the wrap. Some common weaves for babywearing wraps are:
- Jacquard: J is a weave that creates intricate patterns on both sides of the fabric. Jacquard wraps are usually medium to thick in weight, and they can be very supportive and cushy on the shoulders. Jacquard wraps may not be the coolest option for summer, but they can work well if they are made of breathable materials like linen or hemp.
- Broken twill: is a weave that creates a diagonal pattern on the fabric. Cross twill wraps are usually medium in weight, and they have some diagonal stretch that makes them easy to wrap with. Cross twill wraps are durable and supportive, and they can be suitable for summer.
