What makes Solly Baby Wraps so special?
Created by mama of three, Elle Rowley, no detail has been overlooked. Our fabrics are custom made and dyed, using only the finest knit fabrics available with the perfect stretch. Our wraps are lighter and slimmer than any traditional wrap to avoid overheating you or your baby, making it ideal for year-round use.
What are Solly Baby Wraps made from?
Our certified Lenzing Modal is a luxuriously silky soft, sustainable knit made from Austrian beechwood trees and manufactured right here in Los Angeles. It is incredibly lightweight, cool to the touch and gets softer with each wash all while being strong enough to be dried in a conventional dryer on low heat without wearing down. You can read more about this eco-friendly, cutting edge textile here.
Is it true that a Solly Wrap will fit in almost any diaper bag?
Yes! Solly Baby Wraps are not baby gear. Our wraps easily fold into itself and tuck nicely right into a little pouch on one end of the fabric. This makes it so you’ll never need to haul another bag around or worry about losing it. They are so small that you can conveniently keep one in your diaper bag all the time without even noticing it’s there.
When I first designed the wrap, my son Solomon was always losing his pacifier on our walks. I imagined other parents might be having a similar experience so I added a little hidden pocket for “binky storage”.
When can I start using a wrap with my baby and up to what age can my baby be worn in a Solly Baby Wrap?
We recommend going from womb to wrap as Solly Baby Wraps are the most womb-like environment your baby could be in post-birth. They are recommended for even the smallest babies as you’ll get a custom-fit every time you wear it. Although wearers of babies under 7 lbs need to take extra care to keep air passage ways clear, they are ideal for mothers who have been instructed to implement Kangaroo Care.
Our wraps are designed for the first year of a child’s life or up to 25 lbs. Most wrap wearers will get the most use out of it in the first 9-12 months, so we designed our wrap to be ideal for that time period rather than a toddler. This is why our wraps are so light and sleek!
Can I wear my baby facing forward or on my back?
Nope. It puts too much pressure on baby’s spine and joints and increases the risk of baby falling out of the wrap. It also puts extra pressure on the wearer’s back as well from the angle of your baby’s body.
Although our wraps have no added stretch, they are still considered “stretchy” wraps. Therefore, we advise against back carrying.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN WHEN YOU SAY “ONE SIZE FITS ALL”?
Solly Baby Wraps are long enough for a comfortable fit on almost any wearer. Your size will only determine how many times you wrap the ties around your waist, which has no bearing on the strength or integrity of the wrap.
I FEEL LIKE MY BABY ISN’T TOTALLY SECURE. AM I DOING SOMETHING WRONG?
Try 3 things: (1) Tie the wrap tighter! After tying on the wrap, if you look at it and think, “How is a baby gonna fit in that?” then you’re doing it right. (2) Make sure those straps stay flat and untwisted. (3) If you have a bigger baby, adjust the crossed straps on your back so that “X” is higher. This will make it so the baby is higher on you and you won’t feel the need to adjust.
HOW DO I CARE FOR A SOLLY BABY WRAP?
Always wash in cold water on a delicate cycle and then low heat tumble dry.
We recommended wraps are not washed with other clothes or baby clothes containing snaps, buttons or zippers as this may lead to holes.

JUST A FEW REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD WEAR YOUR LITTLE ONE IN A SOLLY BABY WRAP:
It’s one of the best and easiest ways to promote bonding with your baby and can even help reduce postpartum depression.
It’s a lifesaver! It gives you your hands back while keeping your baby close.
Helps to calm even the fussiest babies, especially babies with reflux or gas. A study found in Pediatrics found that wearing your infant 3 hours a day reduces infant crying by 43%!
Solly Baby Wraps provide a womb-like environment for baby that makes them feel secure, safe, and comfortable.
Solly Baby Wraps distribute the weight evenly all over your upper body so it won’t tug on your shoulders or back and it naturally distributes baby’s weight correctly as well, without putting extra pressure on baby’s joints and spine like most carriers do.
It feels like your baby is giving you a big, sweet hug every time you wear it!
