With three boys running wild in the house, we’re no strangers to super heroes. After 15 years I can now confidently say with pride that I know the difference between DC and Marvel, who Luke Skywalker’s father is and the real identity of Spiderman.
So when I spotted a Batman baby carrier for sale on a Facebook selling sight, I knew it would be a welcome addition to our home. Daz prefers to carry Baby R in the sling so I thought it only fitting I bought him one for his birthday.
There are a few cottage industries out there offering custom-made carriers so I had a few to choose from before settling with Wrapahula. After several exchanged Facebook messages, I put in an order for a mid-sized baby/toddler Mei Tai.
The Mei Tai style sling is a really basic concept of a rectangular piece of material with 4 straps, 2 round the waist and 2 shoulder straps. Daz finds these easier to use than our buckle carrier as he can tie it to fit (I personally find the extra straps annoying so am remaining faithful to our CatBirdBaby sling) more importantly though, is that it supports your baby in the correct ergonomic position for their development and Baby R certainly seems to like it.
I upgraded my order to include a detachable hood with bat ears, lined in grey and with extra padding to the shoulder straps. My carrier also came with a Batman mirror for keeping an eye on your little one when you’re carrying them on the back.
The attention to the customisation was fantastic, we discussed how my baby liked to be carried, (arms out usually) and took measurements from the one we were using as it was a good fit which we wanted to replicate and the result was the ultimate sling for Daz & Baby R’s comfort. It’s this level of service and quality of a Wrapahula sling which is the reason I’m sharing with you.
I’ll admit I was a little dubious about paying so much for a sling which wasn’t sold by a well known company, but considering the time and craftsmanship which has gone into it, I have no hesitation in recommending Wrapahula slings. They have also kindly offered Mum in a Nutshell readers a 10% discount for a limited time if anyone else is tempted by them.
I received no payment or incentive to write this review. It’s just a really great sling which I wanted to let you know about.
