Product Test: How Much Stretch Should a Wrap Have?

Posted on December 14 2015

The true test of a quality baby wrap is how it holds up in providing consistent support for baby. If baby's head is initially at the wearer's collarbone, does baby's head stay there over time, or does baby slip lower? Consistent support is a key indicator in our product testing, which helps us determine whether or not the wrap is safe for both baby and wearer. In creating our latest wrap, The Moby Bamboo Wrap, we considered the addition of 2% spandex. Our good friend, Sarah Harding of Asobi Sport Family Fitness, was kind enough to trial the spandex blend wrap so you can see exactly why we at Moby chose not to bring the spandex blend wrap to market. Our final bamboo wrap, which is now available, is made of 70% viscose from bamboo, and 30% cotton. 

Watch Sarah's trial as she tests the spandex blend wrap over a longer period of time, incorporating her regular routine in order to test the quality of the support. See the spandex blend product test, trial conclusion, and the ensuing Moby Bamboo Wrap product test videos on YouTube, or click below for each video.  

Please note that babies should always be worn on the wearer's front body if using a stretchy wrap. If you want to wear your baby on your back, you can consider a woven wrap like the Dolcino, or a SSC, like the Moby GO
