Disclaimer: The thoughts below are my own. I was not paid or offered anything in return for writing a review.
Just like with my first, I knew that I wanted to baby wear. I was not happy with the K’Taan that I used with my first and child number 1 definitely did not enjoy it either. I spent months researching slings and wraps and had settled for a wrap that I found through Instagram. As much as I am happy with the Sollybaby wrap I purchased, I wanted something that I could throw on a little quicker. I also wanted to have a backup to throw in my bag. The experiences of forgetting the one and only wrap I had with my first child have forever haunted me (store runs without a wrap never turned out well!).
Like the Sollybaby wrap, I stumbled upon My Wild Bird through Instagram. The My Wild Bird slings are much more affordable than other wraps that I had found. What essentially drew me in to purchase one was the About section. Taylor’s explanation was straightforward, honest, and just relatable. I always find that I am the happiest with products that are in the small shop business. You just know that there is a lot of hard work, time, and soul put into the product.
For me, especially after going through Postpartum depression with my first, being able to read words that I can relate to is a big thing. I guess also just knowing that you’re either not alone or crazy in your motherhood research of baby wearing or breastfeeding is completely valid helps! It’s a strange feeling to know that this little human was growing in your belly for months and now you can hold them in your arms. Being able to wear him is giving me as much comfort as it does for him. The ability to chase after Child number 1 with ease also helps too!
