Raising the Bar in Babywearing
It is our goal to encourage babywearing as an essential parenting tool! The year of comprehensive research completed prior to releasing our Hugging Hazel Baby Wrap Carrier to the public, involved in-depth analysis of existing reviews of the top baby wrap carriers on the market. Each one presented a compromise of some kind. As popular as they are, there was always one element of sacrifice with each one. It was either very uncomfortable for the wearer, it was too long, too thick and cumbersome, it was very complicated to put on, it required too much time and effort when trying to quickly soothe their crying infant, the patterns and colours were not appropriate as a unisex wrap that dad's and grandpa's could wear, or it was too intimidating to have the health and safety of their precious babe depend on how safely and securely they were able to wrap, twist and tie it.
We know that parenting can be overwhelming enough; your baby wrap shouldn’t be. As a parent, you want nothing less than the very best for your baby. The extensive time and effort, professional experience, and education that went into creating our innovate pull-over design, resulted in a premium quality product that requires NO compromise!!! It was about time to introduce a new generation baby wrap!
Our Unique Design
The Hugging Hazel's unique, pull-over design was initially created with simplicity in mind. It was carefully handcrafted from a single panel of fabric, crossed, gathered and stitched with reinforced seams. Not only does this ensure even weight distribution, it also prevents twisting and bunching up of the body panels. We also left the edges unfinished, to prevent digging, rubbing or cutting into baby’s delicate skin, and to avoid baby getting threads wrapped around their tiny fingers and toes, cutting off their circulation.
Our pull-over wrap was created with inclusivity in mind. It offers individuals with physical or mobility challenges, the same opportunity to wear their baby safely and confidently, in a stretchy wrap!
We spared no expense when it came to selecting the best fabric for your babes. Each baby wrap is made from 66% Tencel™ Lyocell, 28% certified Organic Cotton and 6% Spandex, making it one of the most comfortable, non-toxic, environmentally friendly and baby-safe carriers on the market.
Health & Safety Compliance
It is lawful expectation that a Canadian manufacturer will test to one of the International Health & Safety Standards that exists for baby wraps, slings and carriers. With that said, the Hugging Hazel wrap has endured the rigorous testing required for the ASTM 2907 Standard in the United States and is fully compliant.
The Importance of Babywearing
We want EVERYONE to have access and confidence to wear their child, from the starting of the fourth trimester to the end of the first year. Given the many benefits of physical contact between parent and child during the first year of life. Skin-to-skin contact, in arms carrying, and holding in a soft fabric baby wrap is an essential practice that we highly encourage in the daily care of new babies and their parents.
Our Hugging Hazel carrier was specifically designed to nurture that bond between parent and child; a connection that is critical for healthy
For infants, human touch is a basic need. Newborns thrive when surrounded by the warmth and scent of a parent’s skin, the soothing sound of their voice and their gentle heartbeat.
