From the purse holder on each shoulder to the oversized hidden pocket it has all of the functions you’d expect from a soft structure carrier but with a minimal design. Our carriers are 30-50% lighter than other carriers, thanks in large part to our luxurious linen fabrics as well as component selection. We have been told our carriers are also more comfortable than others due to the wider shoulder straps and special high impact foam.

The Happy Wrap is a stretchy wrap made from a specialized tencel, modal, organic cotton blend. The wrap is lightweight, breathable and wicks moisture away from the body. It’s naturally anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic, eco-friendly, and provides UV protection. The fabric is soft like cashmere and has the perfect amount of stretch, keeping your baby snug, safe and comfortable.
No! Never place your baby in a forward position in a Happy Wrap or any other baby carrier. This position places undue pressure on a baby’s developing spine and hips as well as your baby’s most sensitive area. It also fails to provide good head and neck support.
No. Never use the Happy Wrap for a back carry. There is no safe way to use a stretchy wrap for a back carry.
Remember that the Happy Wrap is a stretchy wrap and should be tied tightly – no part of the wrap should be loose or hanging from your body. It is not necessary to leave room for the baby. The wrap should fit snug, but not be so tight that it is uncomfortable for you or your baby. If you are carrying a heavier baby, try tying the wrap so that the “x” is higher on your sternum. The higher the “x” the higher your baby will be carried. Spread the fabric across baby’s bottom to the hollow of his/her knees. The wide base helps keep the baby in place. Though the wrap can securely hold up to 25 lbs, it is ideal for the first year of your baby’s life with the most use happening in the first 6 months. You may continue to wear the wrap as long as both you and your baby are comfortable.
Right away! No baby is too small to wear in a Happy Wrap. All of our recommended holds are safe and appropriate for even the tiniest of infants. Even premature babies may be worn in the Happy Wrap.
