Getting the most from your Starsnug Star Baby Wrap. As our Starsnug star baby wrap is relatively new concept for a lot of our customers (old and new!), we thought it might be a good idea to describe how it can be best used.
Although based on a very simple idea, unless you've seen one in action you could be a little anxious about using it in the different situations it was designed for, especially when it involves your first new little arrival. Although it definitely looks cute and snuggly it's not a novelty item but a very practical bit of kit for baby when your out and about and which we hope will make your life a lot easier.
Your Starsnug can be used in th same situations you might use a blanket or coat when going out and is usually used as an extra layer on top of your babies clothes. It is however, not a sleep product and should never be as night-time sleeping garment. It can be used in conjunction with jackets and hats and very cold conditions.
When your baby is put into the Starsnug the star points accommodates their arms and legs which enables you to put your child into most 5 point harnesses without unwrapping them. Just make sure in car seats you don't let the fleece gather under the straps. It's important to have the right size fleece for your child. 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. 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. 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.
On a chilly day nothing quite matches the cosyness of the Fleece Star Baby Wrap if you and your baby are on the move. They can be used with cosy toes for an extra layer of warmth on cold windy days.
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.
You may find it easier at first to lie the wrap flat on the floor. Then open the front and lie you little one on top of it. Then just tuck legs in first and then arms and then the hood if required. Fold the front leaves of the wrap over each other. Some mothers have told us they even manage to put the Starsnug on one handed! Make sure the hood is folded back and away from your babies face.
Baby can then be put in the buggy, pram or sling with minimum disturbance. Baby just wears it like a suit so just put straps and harnesses around baby as if it were wearing a coat or other clothes and because it doesn't have any zips buttons or fastners its easy to open up if baby gets too warm or needs a nappy checked.
When checking nappies you can open the wrap up to make a a convenient blanket layer to lie your baby on if a quick change is required.
Our fleece has a great practical durability and can be washed at 30 degrees but please don't tumble dry as this will pill the fleece, you will however find fleece does dry pretty quickly anyway.
If going out and your not sure if you need a fleece the Starsnug will fold into its own hood and form a convenient bundle to pop under the buggy or into a bag..
