Which baby wraps are best?

Taking care of a baby requires several pairs of hands. And yet, you only have one. Finding ways to keep your only pair free while somehow still taking care of everything — and often all at once — is the name of the game.

Among the tools you can use to accomplish this are baby wraps, a form of baby carrier. A wrap keeps your little one strapped tightly but comfortably to your chest. This leaves your hands free and your baby watched and helps you and the baby bond.

What to know before you buy a baby wrap

Baby carrier types

Baby wraps are a type of baby carrier. However, “baby carrier” also refers to two other baby-carrying solutions.

  • Baby wraps are made of a large piece of fabric that you wrap around yourself and your baby to keep them on your chest. There aren’t any buckles or straps, though they can have extras such as pockets. These are typically best for kids 3 months old and younger, and up to 35 pounds.
  • Baby carriers are made of several pieces and resemble a front-facing backpack. They have all kinds of straps and support as they’re typically meant for kids aged 6 months and older. They usually have extra features like pockets.
  • Car seats are the final type of carrier since they typically have handles for moving your baby from home to car to destination and back with as little fuss as possible.


The best baby wraps have no more or less fabric than you need to wrap around yourself and your baby. Too little and you may not be able to secure it properly if you can wrap it around at all. Too much and you’ll either have an excess fabric that risks tangling your legs or you’ll need to spend an inordinate amount of time securing it and your baby.

Making it easier is that most baby wraps are one-size-fits-all. These typically measure roughly 180 to 220 inches long and are usually preferable, as most people in your household should fit it and can help with the baby.

If, however, this size doesn’t fit, you can find wraps as short as 100 inches or as long as 250 inches. Finally, you can also order custom wraps.


Some baby wraps come pre-looped, meaning all you have to do is put them on. This eliminates the winding process to free up some precious moments. However, it means your wrap must be properly sized to you and likely won’t fit anyone else helping out with the baby.


While your baby wrap's look isn’t the most important thing, choosing one you like can boost your mood, following the “look good, feel good” mantra. Go with neutral black or white to match most outfits, or pick one that’s your favorite color.


Some possible features for a baby wrap:

  • Storage pouch: Some wraps have a pouch stitched somewhere on their body that you can fold the rest of the wrap into. This eliminates the need for an extra storage bag while keeping the wrap both contained and protected.
  • Storage bag: Some people prefer a separate bag rather than a built-in pouch and some manufacturers are happy to oblige.
  • Pockets: The best baby wraps tend to have a pocket or two for storing a snack, a pacifier or something else useful.

How much you can expect to spend on a baby wrap

Basic baby wraps cost roughly $20 to $25, with better wraps costing up to around $40 to $50. Anything costing more than this is typically a standard carrier rather than a wrap.
