Why You Need A Baby Carrier Wrap

The last few weeks have been quite the adventure with our new little lady at home. Mackenzie and I finally feel like we’re getting the hang of things as new parents, though we know we still have a ways to go before we can call ourselves pros (but does anyone actually get to a point where they feel like they 100% know what they’re doing??). We’ve been much more active lately and taking Honor on more outings, and one of our favorite ways to bring her with us has been with our Newbie Love wrap.

When we’re going for a quick outing like a coffee down the road, we’ll leave her stroller at home and wrap her up nice and snug when we get her out of the car. As you guys know I did tons of research before giving birth to her, and I had read about the need for newborn babies to be physically close to their parents as much as possible. Research shows that babies’ brains develop the best when stimulated by our voice, smell, movement, and skin-to-skin contact. Carrying your baby on your body so closely gives them all of that at stimulation once, making them feel safe and secure as you step out into the world together. This wrap also has a padded neck support, which supports baby’s head as their neck muscles continue to develop. Most babies can’t support their own head until around 4 weeks old, and can’t properly hold it up in a sitting position until around 4 months, so it’s important to have this extra support during this time.

Newbie Love was kind enough to share some tips with us on the best way to use your wrap. They encourage the ‘TICKS’ method for keeping your baby safely secured. Check out this video for further instructions!

T. Tight against the body (so baby doesn’t slump down)
I. In view at all times (don’t cover over the baby’s head)
C. Close enough to kiss the top of baby’s head (not low down)
K. Keep chin off chest (easier when firmly supported)
S. Supported back (again, this helps by a tight wrap).

    I’m just curious if you’ve used any other wraps? I am torn between getting something like the cheeko or getting this newbielove one. Do you find as she gets older/bigger that you are still able to use the newbielove carrier? I am just concerned that it is for teenie newborns only & trying to gauge the longevity of the product.

  • I remember the first time I met Ralph Lauren. I was working at Vogue.com in London, and was flown to Moscow (yes Moscow!!) for the launch of his flagship store there. The runway show was epic: a live orchestra played, and afterwards we drank frozen vodkas shots with pickles, and ate supper at the ambassador’s home under a hundred candelabras. We danced til the sun came up. Tonight, I’m getting a sneak peek at his @skyatlanticuk documentary, #VeryRalph, which I’ve been DYING to see, and it was incredible! Catch it tomorrow on @skyatlanticuk, or on demand any time. #ad
  • #ad Friendsgiving has become a very happy tradition for me. Living in LA, all us Brits had families far away so to celebrate the holiday we would gather to cook, eat, drink, play games, and laugh for hours. I was naturally always in charge of cocktails and this year I’m making the @ketelonebotanical Botanical Spritz. So easy to make and so delicious with no sugar and no carbs- just add club soda and fresh fruit to your favourite varietal in a wine glass! Can’t wait to bring this tradition back to England this year! #PeachandOrangeBlossom #KetelBotanical #BotanicalSpritz
  • I had so much fun shopping for Honor at @ilgufo_official today- and I got to chat to the Italian heritage brand’s elegant CEO @alessandrachiavelli ... watch it all on my stories. How are Italians just always so impeccably chic!? #ad #ilgufo_official
  • Today we walked to the town square and listened to the trumpets salute our fallen soldiers, we watched the helicopters fly overhead, and we listened to the choir sing. I wish Honor could have met her brave great-grandfathers, who fought in the RAF and the army, but I shall make sure I tell her all about them, and that every year we will proudly wear our poppies. #LestWeForget #RemembranceSunday
  • Literally got my claws into him 🤣
True romance ♥️
Love you babes @mackenziehunkin
  • Writing down your dreams and goals is such a powerful way to start making them a reality - but when was the last time you took the time to do it? I have lots of plans for the year ahead (like creating our dream family home!) and @kikki.k dream journals are the perfect way to set the wheels in motion, inspired by @kristinakikkik and her book.
