How do I put a Star Baby Wrap on my baby?

Its' so simple to use, just pop your dressed baby into the wrap, arms and legs into the points of the star, hood on head and you're ready to go. Baby can then be put in the car seat, transferred to buggy, pram or sling with minimum disturbance. Unlike other wraps you don't have to restrict their arms or place the blanket into the car seat before the baby. Baby just wears it like a suit and because it doesn't have any zips buttons or fasteners its easy to open up if baby gets too warm or needs a nappy checked. Hands and feet are covered without the worry of loosing booties or mittens. 

When can I use a Star Baby Wrap?

The fleece star baby wraps can be usually used for at least 3 seasons in the UK, depending on outside temperature. We do find, as it's a single fleece over layer, it's more adabtable than a snowsuit or jacket and can be taken on and off quickly without the struggle of little arms in tight jacket sleeves and the tears! Although, mostly used in Autumn, Winter and Spring it can be useful as quick cover-up on cooler summer evenings and is always a great stand-by to put under the buggy. Top tip: You can fold and roll up the Snugstar star baby wrap into its own hood to store!

 

How do I wash my Star Baby Wrap?

Fleece Star Baby Wraps can be machine washed at 30 degrees. Please do not tumble dry, you will find the fleece air dries quite quickly. We recommend to turn the star wrap inside out and not to wash with items containing velcro which could pul the stitching. Washing instructions are inside the wrap by the front opening.

 

Can I use it in a Car Seat? 

As with all baby overcoats, blankets and wraps caution should be exercised when used in a car seat to prevent your baby overheating.  Even on chilly days cars can heat up very quickly and combined with the insulative properties of car seats babies can get too warm too quickly. If used in a car seat please make sure there are no more than 2 layers of fabric under the straps and that it lies flat and is not ‘bunched’ under the straps to ensure that your baby is securely fastened into the seat and so prevent excessive movement. When correctly fastened the straps should be tight enough that only 1 or 2 fingers can fit between the child's chest and the strap. Please also take into consideration  the number of layers you have underneath the wrap. This is why we recommend buying the correct size Starsnug for your baby, to minimize excess fabric. If you are in any doubt please do not use the wrap in a car seat. Suitable use can depend on the babies size rather than age and other garments worn.  The Starsnug is a very practical snuggly wrap which is easy to get on and off your baby, so we are sure you will find plenty of occasions to use it with prams, buggys and slings when out and about.

 

Can it be used for Nightwear?

This product is intended as an outdoor wrap it is not a sleep product and should not be used as a night time sleep suit.

That's about it, of course if you have any further questions please don't hesitate to contact us and we will be pleased to advise.
