Hug A Bub Wrap Baby Carrier Review and Giveaway

I’m currently typing this post with Savannah snuggled against my chest.

No I am not extraordinarily good at balancing aΒ  baby while I type, nor am I typing one-handed. I am hands free thanks to the hug a bub carrier wrap.

I have been trying the hug a bub out over the last couple of days and after a rocky start with me trying to tie it on and fearing I was going to drop my cuddly newborn, I have now gotten it all sussed and am enjoying my new found Mummy freedom.

Savannah has not been doing so well lately with her day time sleeps. I can at least be glad night time is going okay.

The hug a bub is freeing me up to get some things done and giving her a chance to close those eyes of hers as she snuggles close to her mummy and listens to that familiar heart beat that kept her comforted for those nine months in her warm cocoon.

I’m sure with the hug a bub she feels as if she is back in there, which is what I love so much about it. The hug a bub feels different to other carriers in that it wraps the baby around you in a womb like embrace so she feels like she is part of you again. Other carriers make it feel like they are just a transportation method.

So snug

With the hug a bub, you can include your baby in your daily life and also provide an optimal environment for healthy physical, psychological and social development.

So far I’m finding it very comfortable and snug. I feel as if the baby’s weight is evenly dispersed around my body and being supported by the right muscles.

I am enjoying having my baby so close to me and from all the research I have read there are so many benefits in doing so, which is why this baby wearing carrier is such a great product for any parent with children up toΒ 2 years old.

The hug a bug is made from organic cotton so it is very breathable and so soft. I especially love the green tea colour of the organic carrier I selected.

    My little one always wanted to be carried to sleep. I wish I had another suggestion, but the snuggles were fabulous.

  • Mez

    I like singing softly and stroking my fingers through my 4 month old baby’s hair. Works so well that she sings herself to sleep sometimes….very cute πŸ™‚

  • Bec

    my kids have always like having some one run their fingers through their hair, my 16 day old although relatively bald still likes having some one run their hand over his head gently as he drifts off, my 18 month old has taken to running her own hand through her hair when she goes to bed, but still drops straight off if some one else does it for her πŸ™‚

  • Sarah

    I have no hot tips either as I too have a daytime cat napper. Maggie loves to sleep in the Ergo though so I would love to try the hug a bub

  • Mel

    I used to put my little mans bassinet on or next to the speaker from husbands PA system the vibrationas and the music worked everytime.

  • Deb

    My little ones always loved their back scatches and even today my youngest who just turned 7 still asks for mummy cuddles and back scatches before sleep. I would also have a tape player in her room playing soft clasical music when she was younger but disney melodies now she is older. Setting the mood for sleep and keeping it consistant is the key to healthy sleep habits. Happy mothering xxx

  • Eliza Keet

    We often gently run our finger down her forehead along her nose. We do it a few times and she will then close her eyes. A couple more times and she keeps them closed. It is really cute as she does a big sigh around the fourth or fifth stroke!

    On really bad days, we put her in the hug a bub and play some music while I rock and pat to the beat of the music. I will dance around a bit and she drifts off to sleep…

  • coralie

    My little boy is six weeks old and I didn’t want to develop a tedious sleep routine that I would grow to hate. So I gently stroke his face from temple to chin – and orehead down the bridge of his nose. He loves it as it is relaxing and he knows I am close it is also something I can easily do when I am teaching him to self settle x

    I have liked the hug a bub fan page – thankyou πŸ™‚

  • Amanda Kubik

    I have always fed to sleep, there is nothing like a little one closing their eyes and drifting off to a blissful sleep, happy and contented. I especially loved seeing that little drop of milk roll down the chin when coming off πŸ™‚

    I always hummed or would sing my daughter to sleep. Now she is 18 months old and it still calms her down. I also rock her to sleep or give her warm milk. Now with baby number 2 on the way I am sure I will use the same techniques.

    Singing and stroking my babys head helps put her to sleep!!

    Booby! Sorry, I know it doesn’t work for all babies, but it was always my fail-safe way to get my bub to nod off in a milky haze. She’s 3 now and I’m due with #2 in a couple of weeks…..would love to try a wrap like the Hug-a-Bub with the new bub!

    And I’ve ‘liked’ the Hug-a-Bub fanpage too πŸ™‚

  • Katrina

    for my first it was always skin to skin contact….of course while being held.

  • Danielle Sampson-Grills

    My baby loves holding my thumb and I sing Justine Clarkes song watermelon to her.

  • Lisa Wood

    I have seen one of this on youtube – the mother was showing how to tie it up, and how to wear it so that baby stays safe while you are placing them into the hug-a-bug-wrap carrier. I so wished I had one for our last baby (he is 6 yrs old!) as he loved to sleep on my chest, and I couldnt get anything done while he was sleeping.
    I dont have any good hints or tips to get baby to sleep as all my boys like to sleep close to me, or fall asleep feeding! We also co-slept with our babies as that was the only way they would get to sleep, and allow me to sleep!

    Love the green colour, and love how baby can sleep safe close to your heart, with hearing your heart beat, and still able to get work done.
    PS – I also like the facebook fan page so that i could share it with my cousin who is due in two weeks time!

    Hi Caz,

    I was sent over by Zoey at Good Googs and after a good nosey around I’d firstly like to compliment you on your blog, it’s so heartfelt and well, lovely!

    My best settle to sleep technique is having music in the room – we have always had music playing in the room with our now 3 year old and it helps drown out the other noise. I imagine this will help immensely with things when we are graced with a newborn in a few short week’s time.

    & I’m also a liker on Facebook! Thanks so much for the great competition. x

  • Tutu Ames

    We always have a floor fan on for noise and we cuddle to sleep. Other than that lufflump loves playing with my ears. I’m hoping to sling sesame to sleep (when he/she is born).

    I’ve been playing Handles Water Music from the Baby Einstein series and it’s the only music that settles my 5mth old. Works a treat during the day!

    My sister liked to be held.

    The way I help my son to sleep, is to do the Rainbow Ritual that I got from Petrea King. I’ve tailored her ritual for my son and me, but essentially, it goes like this…

    I tell him that I wrap him in all the colours of the rainbow (going through each one). I feel the warmth and vibrance of each colour. With my hand on my chest, I tell him that I send a rainbow from my heart to his, so that he will know we’re connected and bonded, as he sleeps. I end by placing my hand his his chest and pull up the covers.

    It takes a minute to go through all this, and then I leave him peacefully to have a deep and restful sleep.

    My tip is a lovely warm bath and massage before sleep time.. relaxing and bonding for both Mum and Bub! Thank you πŸ™‚
