Why is the monkeywrap better than other carriers?
Wrap-style carriers offer a custom fit every time and can be worn by many people, many ways. The wrap-style carrier supports the wearer’s back by using both shoulders and your entire torso.
The monkeywrap has been carefully tailored to offer the best fit of any wrap-style baby carrier, featuring a wider front panel and narrower tails. It can be worn as a wrap-style shirt when baby is not in the wrap and when baby is being worn, the ties are small and can be easily tucked out of the way.
Our new line of monkeywraps are not only handcrafted in Canada with custom Canadian-made fabrics, but the fabrics contain fibers that are more environmentally friendly than traditional cotton. We are using Bamboo-Viscose and Organic cotton fabric with Oeko-tex Standard 100 certified dyes.
Why Bamboo Viscose? – The fabric made with Bamboo fibres is called Bamboo Viscose. It is a very soft and durable fabric. Not only does it offer the softness you would want in a fabric that will be close to a baby’s skin, it also offers the added benefits of being incredibly sustainable, naturally antibacterial and grows without the need for pesticides. It also is extremely absorbent and requires less ink to dye.
Why Organic Cotton? – The Organic Cotton in our Bamboo & Organic Cotton Monkeywraps is certified by Control Union Certifications (formerly SKAL International), which follow the required Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) for textile production. These cotton fibers are grown without the use of conventional pesticides and herbicides and are processed and harvested following a strict set of standards ensuring product quality and integrity to the end user
There is only one size monkeywrap, offering multiple caregivers the use of the same wrap. It will fit almost anyone.
Structured carriers have been linked to hip displacia in babies and back problems in adults. They are difficult to adjust properly and are often worn incorrectly adjusted, causing further problems. Pouch or sling syle carriers put 100% of the baby’s weight pressure on one shoulder while often forcing the wearer to practice poor posture to compensate, which leads to muscle, neck and spine pain. They also need to be sized to the wearer and cannot be shared with people of different stature.
