Best purhcase ive ever made!
Absolutely love my boba wrap!
The material can get a little hot In the peaks of summer but apart from that theres nothing negative I can really say about it! All round amazing product and would recommend to any mum in the market look at similar products! Money well spent.
The number one must-have for a new mum!!
The best thing you could buy for your sanity and your back! $20 second hand on gumtree and worth 5 times the amount! I am reluctant to wash it because I can't do without it for a day for it to dry!! Haha. Just need to practice a few times putting it on (YouTube is great) and it's quickly your best friend!!
I can never work it
I bought this when my baby was newborn, but I haven't really used it because even after trying MANY MANY times, I can never get it to support his weight properly, and it quickly becomes uncomfortable for either one of us. I love the generosity of the wrap, and the fabric is lovely and breathable. If I could get it to wrap nicely on me I would love it! I am much happier with my Baby Bjorn One carrier.
Not sure of quality
I loved my boba wrap with my newborn, but it was quite thick and my daughter and I got hot so easily.
After prolonged use, a small hole appeared next to the label and made me quite suspicious of the quality of this wrap. Googled it and found it to be quite a common problem. Next time I may buy something made in countries other than China.
I bought this wrap with a soft carrier as a combo pack (was originally interested on the carrier, but used the wrap more).
I loved it. It was comfortable for both myself and my son, He loved being in it and would settle straight away.
It takes a few times to get it right (needs to be tight to hold the baby, otherwise it will sag), but definitely worth it.
Comfortable, light, baby loves it. Easy to clean.
Can take a bit of practice to put it on.
Invaluable for newborns
This wrap is so supportive and snuggly for mum & baby, particularly for newborns. It was easy to tie and slid baby into, the insturctions are great and I looked up lots of youtube videos to see what other mums where doing too, including breastfeeding in it. It takes a couple of tries to get the tension right as baby will slide down a little once they relax and fall asleep. When my son fell asleep I would put the shoulder strap over the side and back of his head to support his neck. My baby was a difficult sleeper for the first five months and h...e usually slept better when in this than in his cot. I loved using it so much it's what I usually give as a baby shower gift now, they should give one of these to every new mum. Very supportive and snuggly for newborns. Easy to tie and put baby in. Can be warm in summer, dress you and baby in one less layer than you normally would

Comfortable and supportive for baby and wearer
I love this wrap! Best $50 I've spent on baby stuff. I bought this after struggling with the mini monkey and reading rave reviews here, and was not disappointed. It looks complicated, but the instructions are really easy to follow and I had my newborn in the perfect position from the first attempt. You just have to make sure it's on nice and tight or the baby will slowly slide down!
My baby settles quickly and happily sleeps on me all day in the wrap. His head is well supported, so I have 2 hands free to get on with other stuff. Both my hus...band and I were getting back pain from wearing bubs, but this wrap spreads weight evenly and feels super comfy and supportive. The material is quite thick but I've been wearing it in summer without too much grief, I just dress the baby in one less layer. Super comfortable and supportive for baby and wearer, great value, easy to use
Top of the must buys
I happen to buy the sleepy wrap by chance not knowing whether I would use it or not. I got it out when bub was 3 weeks old, after watching a you tube vid on how to wrap it. Tucked bub in and he was asleep within minutes. Unbelievably comfortable for both of us. I feel like bub is more secure and with the fabric feel he's closer to me and can easily feel his movements.
Comfort, washable & compact
Saggy if you don't wrap it well enough. That's more user error than product fault though
a must have
I love this wrap, easy to use, supportive, comfortable and versatile. My baby loves it. Has worked well from birth to 6 months. He is getting a bit heavy for it now as the stretch sags a bit too much and too quickly.
Having him in this sling means if he wants to sit up and interact he can, or he can snuggle in.
Forward facing bub wasn't so good for me due to the weight distribution.
Overall fantastatic, couldn't have done without.
very comfortable, versatile and affordable
bub loved it so much it was hard for me to get him to sleep elsewhere.
Best baby carrier ever
Best baby carrier ever. Baby is comfortable and snug. I can wear this carrier for a couple of hours without being uncomfortable at all and has a few different ways to carry bubs. Machine washable and very simple to use. This carrier/wrap comes in various different colors and is very affordable.
Can be a little warm in summer
Great for new bubs
I love my sleepy wrap. used it for the first 4 months everywhere, then bub started to get heavy. Now she's 6 months & I try not to use any carrier on my front because of the weight. Haven't found one that I would use past 6 months - but that might just be me.
very cheap at $30
hard to get used to putting it on, but very easy once you know how.
Wonderful entry level wrap
An amazing way to be close to your baby. I love mine and use it all the time. As bub grows we have moved on to a more supportive wrap, but the sleepy wrap is an old favourite, easy to use for quick short trips, particularly because u can pre tie the wrap and just slip bub in.
Cheap, comfortable, bub goes to sleep quickly
Stretch means its not so great for long wears - tends to sag a little
I use mine everyday!
I had a traditional baby carrier with straps and buckles. I likes being able to carry my newborn around but I found his head wasn't really supported and I had to always have one hand supporting him. When I saw domeone wearing a sleepy wrap I asked her about it. What I noticed was how snug her baby seemed and how comfy it tooked to wear. I bought my first sleepy wrap that day. Since then I've bought a second wrap so when I wash one, I still have the other. I love the versatility of this wrap, from a newborn hammock hold to a toddler hip carry. ...Its easy to tie and I like to tie mine on before I leave the house so I can just slip him in. I use it for shopping instrad of navigating a pram through the isles, I use it while I prepare dinner, hang washing, do all manner of chores. My baby loves being in it and I love having him close but still having free hands. Its even useful if you're breastfeeding in public places as it acts as a cover. I wouldn't be without this product. Great colour choice, easy to use, washes well, cheap, comfortable to wear, comfortable for baby, versatile. May be a bit hot in summer
I would recommend the Sleepy Wrap to everyone. A little tricky to get used to tying it initially but after a few times it's quite simple. The wrap is very supportive for bubs, so comfortable to wear and seems very comfy for bubs as he always falls asleep when he's in it.
Comfy, simple, compact to store or take out and about
Perfect for me and my little man
This wrap is perfect for when i need to quickly go to the shops for some milk or bread. It saves me from trying to deal with a very heavy pram and a crying baby. I also use it at home when bubs seems unsettled and I can continue cleaning or cooking.
Good for my back and very comfortable for my baby. He falls asleep as soon as he is in it.
Questions & Answers
How do you use the baby wrap therefore I don't have instructions how to do so.
It doesn't come with instructions. I found a tutorial on YouTube. It's a two part video and I had to watch it 20 times before I got it down pat. It's easy after that though. Search sleepy wrap on YouTube. The video I watch is called "EASY Sleepywrap (baby wrap) Instructions but there are a heap on there. Hope this helps.
I did the same as above. YouTube is full of videos of parents putting babies in wraps! I recommend practising with a doll first :-)
Ditto, I had the instructions and found YouTube gave me more detail & different ways to wrap.
