Sleepy Wrap (Boba Wrap)
All of a sudden, my baby girl seems really heavy and saggy in my sleepy wrap. She's only almost four months old. She is pretty big for her age, but not huge. I'm guessing she is 15-16 pounds.
Is this a normal time for the stretchy wraps to start feeling saggy? Or is there something I can do to adjust us to make us more comfortable?
I'm not ready to give up the snuggly-ness of the stretchy wrap yet!

Re: Sleepy Wrap (Boba Wrap)
Unfortunately I would say that yes, she has outgrown the stretchy wrap phase. I personally found them to be too saggy when DD hit 12lbs. There are many other types of carriers that will be more supportive now that your LO is bigger. I love woven wraps! :)

I found by that weight the Sleepy Wrap (I had one too) was too saggy. I went to an Ergo at that point and I love it, but there are SO MANY choices out there depending on what you want. I agree, the cuddliness of the wraps are nice :)

Eta this is my favorite wrap.

Just wanted to add that if you want snuggly but need more support you could try a bamboo woven wrap. They are the softest snuggliest wovens around ;)

We have a boba wrap, I absolutely love it. I wore K in the boba wrap for about 3 hours at a bonfire we went to last night. She is 6.5 months and about 18 pounds and we are still comfy in it and don't really have any sagging. I think maybe I've been tying it a little tighter than I used to and I can't usually take her out and put her back without tightening it up some but I think we will be able to get a couple more months at least out of it. I will be sad when we outgrow it.

Yup my ds2 outgrew the Sleepy Wrap at 4 months too, he was 18 lbs. (Boba wrap is the same as the Sleepy wrap, just renamed). If you still want a snuggly wrap I'd find a nice woven wrap. Right now I'm loving Diva Milan's wool wraps, so soft and snuggly, and I will use it with new squish due in Feb and I currently use it with ds2 who is 2 years old.

Yup, stretchys only work till about 15lbs on average. As early as 12, as late as 20, depending on the parent, baby, and the wrap.

Re: Sleepy Wrap (Boba Wrap)
I think stretchy wraps are easily outgrown at 4-5 months. Which is why I can not imagine even purchasing one. The store i work at carries them, and I try really hard not to recommend them(bad I know) but it just doesnt make sense to me.... I am going to go with getting a woven wrap, and use it for my 2 and 3 yr old and new baby when the time comes.

Re: Sleepy Wrap (Boba Wrap)
Usually most people find that their stretchy wraps become less comfortable/supportive when the baby is somewhere between 15-20lbs. You may be able to get a little more time out of it by tying it tighter and making sure the "X" in the front is up high. But, it could just be that you'd be better off in a more supportive carrier at this point.
