Babywearing promotes a more relaxed and content baby that feels safe, secure and cries less.
The Monkeywrap® offers you the convenience of being hands-free while knowing baby is close and comfortably safe.
Known for being smaller than other baby wraps, the Monkeywrap® has been carefully designed to offer you the best fit. Handcrafted in Canada from the perfect blend of cotton and spandex the Monkeywrap® offers you comfort and support by evenly distributing baby's weight accross your entire upper body.
Feel stylish wearing your Monkeywrap® with its close fit and signature tapered tails.
A FRESH update to the traditional wrap-style baby carrier!
The Monkeywrap® looks like a shirt and can be worn all day whether carrying baby or not. We suggest you tie the Monkeywrap® at the start of your day and whether you are leaving the house or staying at home, you can just 'pop' baby in & out.
What makes the Monkeywrap® different from other wrap-style carriers?
The custom-knit stretch cotton blend offers softness, comfort and durability and allows the product to be much smaller and less bulky than the other wraps that are wider and longer, while still offering all the benefits a wrap has to offer. It stretches when you need it to stretch, making the placement and removal of baby easier but shrinks back down to a tight supportive fit for you & baby, adding to the comfort of the product.
Offering a custom fit every time it is tied, the Monkeywrap® supports the wearer's back by using both shoulders and your entire torso to distribute baby's weight without pressure points. 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-style carriers put 100% of the baby's weight 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.
Please see the comparison chart below. We hope it will help you make an informed choice as to which carrier you feel will best suit your lifestyle.

"I have tried other competing wraps and there is so much material and very little stretch, Monkeywear® has perfected everything!"
"With my twins I used the carrier that I was given and didn't start until they were several months old. Now with baby #3 we are constantly on the go.... I have purchased and returned four different slings. This afternoon I bought your product and was able to place her in a comfortable hold the first time. I already know that I love this product."
