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.
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
Great wrap - essential item with a newborn!
I bought this second hand ($20) after ready some good reviews - chose it over the hug a bub as it seemed to do the same sort of thing at a much cheaper price. Many times when nothing else would settle bub she'd fall asleep within moments of going in this and sometimes sleep for hours! Loved that I could still do other things while wearing it as I had my hands free.
Not too expensive, comfortable for baby, easy to clean
Learning to tie it (but didn't take long), only really used for 1st six weeks, not suitable now baby is heavier. Gets hot after a while.

Was recommended to me by my Osteopath. Love the Sleepy Wrap. Baby falls asleep in it every time and seems to like being so close to mum!
Easy to wrap, good support for both mum and bub, comfortable to wear, stores easily when not in use, great for travelling without taking a bulky carrier.
Can get hot in warm weather
I was excited the first time i wore it as my newborn fell asleep instantly and i was able to get on with jobs. I wore it the next day to a shopping centre and he became very upset because it was so hot in this (even in the airconditioning). I havent worn it since, but i might try again in winter.
Baby fell asleep quickly
Leaves your hands free
Far too hot for QLD (even in aircon)
Too hard to put on
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.
