A wrap is a type of baby carrier that you wrap around yourself, creating a pocket in which to carry your baby. It is made from a specially woven fabric, designed to support the baby. They are the most versatile and comfortable type of carrier but they can be difficult to learn to use. With a wrap conversion, you can have the best of both worlds; an extremely comfortable carrier that is simple to use.
If you are finding your wrap too difficult to use, or would like a carrier that shows off the beautiful colours and patterns of your wrap while being quick to use then a wrap conversion may be what you are looking for.
I offer three options for your wrap conversion; wrap conversion mei tai, half buckle or full buckle.
Wrap conversion mei tai
A Little River wrap conversion comes with wrap straps, an adjustable hood, and a lightly padded tied waist.
Our half buckle comes with wrap straps, an adjustable hood and a lightly padded waist that is fastened with a buckle.
A full buckle comes with padded straps that fasten with a buckle, an adjustable hood and a lightly padded waist that is fastened with a buckle. A chest belt is included.
I offer two sizes for your wrap conversion. All sizes are approximate.
Standard - 17″ wide and 16″ high (from top of carrier to top of waistband)
