Even before E arrived, I knew that I wanted to baby wear once again. There is something I love about that closeness you get while doing so. I feel like it’s not only comforting for babies but mothers as well.

I couldn’t help but gravitate towards blush and lavender tones during this pregnancy. That’s what happens when you have your first girl I suppose! So this Tie the Knot wrap by LÍLLÉbaby in blushing pink was a must for me. I love that the material is incredibly soft and light enough that you can feel that your baby isn’t overheating. No wonder E just instantly gets comfortable and falls asleep as soon as she’s tucked in!
We took a family walk around the neighborhood a few days ago and I decided to babywear E rather than in her carset-stroller since it was cold out. One of the things I love most about this wrap is the fact that there is elastic to tie the ends. Other wraps that I’ve used in the past don’t have this option. You end up dragging the ends on the floor while you’re situating the wrap around yourself. So being able to tie the ends so appeals to the germaphobe in me!
It’s been awhile since I last used a wrap but luckily LÍLLÉbaby included illustrated directions. You can also find instructional videos on their site based on what type of carrier you’ve chosen. I haven’t babyworn in awhile so I looked at both the illustrated directions and video for reference. Once you remember the steps, it’s pretty easy to get down and adjust according to your comfort and baby’s comfort level.
I love that there is a pocket in the front. Something that I never had with previous wraps that I’ve used. It’s so convenient! I’ve found myself tucking my phone in there and a small burping cloth.
I loved being able to go on our weekly family walks again. Being able to baby wear and use this LÍLLÉbaby wrap made it easy to not only have E close but push a stroller with W and direct O as we walked. She was snoozing the whole walk but that didn’t stop me from peeking in on her.
Our verdict? Yes to this as a must have baby gear item. I’ve been using this around the house now that I’m slowly getting back to my routine of housework and chaos control manager. E always falls asleep once she’s situated in whether at home or out and about. It makes it easy for me to get things done but have her close if she doesn’t want to be in her bassinet or lounger. This definitely helps because with 3 littles, I need all the hands I can use!
