The South London Sling Library currently has the following Stretchy Wraps:
The Loan Fee for all stretchy carriers is £5
Boba Wrap (used to be known as Sleepy Wrap) – Soft and stretchy material, this wrap is reasonably lightweight and very easy to use, though not the most supportive of our stretchy wraps. Deposit value is £40
Hana Baby Wrap (Purple) – made from sustainable bamboo-blend fabric, this is our lightest, coolest and least bulky stretchy wrap. Despite this, we’ve found it to be both supportive and comfortable, even for bigger babies. Deposit Value is £45
Hoppediz Stretchy Wrap (5.4m, teal long with Motif) – less bulky, thinner fabric than the Moby wrap, this is our longest and widest stetchy wrap to offer excellent weight distribution and support. Great for taller or larger adults. Deposit value is £35
Je Porte Mon Bebe (LPMBB) Wrap (light grey with turquoise pocket) – super stretchy, wide and strong wrap that offers excellent support even for bigger babies. Deposit value is £60
Kari Me (Teal) – less bulky, thinner and cooler to wear than other stretchy wraps, while still offering ease of use and a great level of support and comfort. Deposit value is £40
Moby Wrap (black) – great value, comfortable stretchy wrap carrier, thicker and hotter to wear than other brands (but lovely and snuggly in the winter) and some may find it bulkier than other stretchy wraps. Deposit value is £30
Victoria Sling Lady Summer Stretch Wrap – the cheapest stretchy wrap available that has been safety tested to EU standards. This wrap is narrower than most other stretchy wraps, but still works well for small babies. Deposit value is £15
And the following Stretchy Hybrid Carriers (these have similar materials and the same basic child carrying method and positions as stretchy wraps, but may have different features or fastenings):
Close Carrier (Now rebranded as the Caboo) – Made from the same fabric as a regular stretchy wrap, but uses rings to fasten and adjust so that no wrapping is required to put it on. You can use it with or without the extra horizontal support panel. Deposit value is £50
Infantino Sync – with a buckled waist, this carrier wraps around baby just like a stretchy wrap, but with a little less bulk. Deposit value is £35
Tricotti Sling – this simple to use sling comprises two pouches made from supportive stretchy fabric. You use both pouches together to create a pocket to fit baby into. This sling needs to be fitted to the carrying adult in order to be safely supportive for baby – the Library has size small, for those with dress size of about size 8-12. Deposit value is £45
