A wraparound sling (known as a "wrap") is the most versatile type of sling. It is basically a long piece of material that can be wrapped and tied in different ways to provide a supportive and secure carry for any age of baby or toddler. With a wrap you can wear your child on your front, back or hip in a variety of different carrying positions. These slings are ideal for parents wishing to share a sling. Wraps are generally split into two categories: those made from stretchy material and those made from woven material. For more detailed information on wraps see our "Sling Advice" section.
