Part of being comfortable and confident when babywearing is selecting a carrier that is right for you. There are several things to consider when choosing a sling or carrier. For instance, your lifestyle, your baby's weight, the amount of time in a day you plan to use it, importance of having a nursing cover, pocket for keys or diaper, and many other things.

Maya Wrap Product Features

Cool: All of our baby carriers are 100% cotton and are comfortable in hot weather. Our fabrics look the same on both sides, eliminating the need for sewing two fabrics together to hide the wrong side of a fabric. One layer of fabric is cooler than two layers and allows for better air flow to help keep your baby from becoming over-heated.

No Bulk: The Maya Wrap Ring sling has light cushioning in the shoulder. Our other carriers are not padded. This means all of our carriers are not bulky. They fit easily into your diaper bag or purse when you are on the go. The Maya Tie uses slightly more fabric but will still fit nicely into a larger diaper bag or backpack.

Comfortable: Our Slings distribute baby’s weight across your back for a comfortable, secure fit. The Maya Tie distributes baby’s weight over both shoulders and your hips for ultimate comfort. It is excellent for heavier children or babywearing for long periods of time. Unlike other woven cottons, our hand-loomed fabrics "give" for a more comfortable fit while still being supportive.

Versatile: All of our baby carriers are usable in a variety of positions for newborns and toddlers. Our slings grow with your baby over time. The Maya Tie can also be used for a very comfortable and secure back carry.

Adjustable: All of our products come in a range of sizes and are fully-adjustable, ensuring a perfect and secure fit every time! Our carriers can be tightened over a wide range. Frequently both parents can share one carrier even if they are different sizes.

Discreet: You can breastfeed in all of our baby carriers. For those who prefer to breastfeed discreetly, the tails of our slings can be used as a cover up. When selecting a sling, if nursing coverage is not important to you, you may prefer to select a size smaller. The smaller size will have a shorter fabric tail past the rings.
