Be in to win a Heart to Heart Stretchy Wrap

At Babywearing Wellington we're running a competition for one lucky person to win a Heart to Heart stretchy wrap in natural colour. This is thanks to the generosity of Jackie from Baby Wrap, who has donated this beautiful and comfortable stretchy wrap. Check them out at

All you need to do to be in the draw is send us a Babywearing story by 29 April: a short paragraph or few detailing why you think you (or a friend) should get the wrap. You can use email, or send us a message on Facebook. The BWW committee will collate all stories and select by vote which one speaks 'Heart to Heart' to us the most. I can tell already that we have our work cut out for us!

The winner will be announced at our May Slingmeet, so if you enter the comp please make sure you attend on Friday 6 May at 10am at the Southern Cross in Te Aro to be able to claim your prize.

We'd love to hear more stories from our Babywearing community, and this is a wonderful opportunity to do so.

Check out the fabulous specials that Jackie has going this month - only $50 for a beautiful wrap!

I have one of these beautiful wraps myself, which was perfect for Holly as a newborn. Being cotton, it was very easy to take care of. I just threw it in the wash after one of the many messy incidents involving a number two. As Holly grew into a very bonnie baby (aka chubba bubba :)), the extra width was very handy too.

This photo is one of my earliest outings with Holly in the Heart to Heart (at just 8 days old). Fond memories of those newborn days!


  1. Awwww!!! Shows how much she has grown up!!!! What a cute picture!!!

    What a great idea having a community for baby wearing!!!! My mother's group here always thinks I am a little odd for still wearing Ethan, but he still loves it even now - not that he is that old really! :))

  2. Please note that due to popular demand we've extended the deadline until 4 May. So you still have time to get your entries to us! Just email the team at We'll be announcing the winner at our slingmeet this Friday. See you there!

  3. Congratulations to Emma Consolo, the winner of this beautiful Heart to Heart wrap. Emma was nominated by her friend Katrina, who shared Emma's beautiful and heart warming story. Thank you both!

    Our runner up was Rachael W, who is now the proud owner of a pair of Babylegs. Congratulations Rachael!

    We just loved hearing all your Babywearing stories!
