Solly Baby was founded by Elle Rowley, mom of 2 and entrepreneur. She refers to Solly Baby as “our little family business” and even though Solly Baby has had great success, she’s stuck to a grass roots mission and handmade techniques to crafting her popular baby carriers. For every wrap sold, Solly Baby donates $1 to Every Mother Counts, an incredible organization working to improve maternal health around the world. There are so many baby carriers on the market today so differentiating them and finding the right one can take some research. While I was pregnant with Porter I got the Moby Wrap and the Ergo. I used the Ergo more than the Moby mostly because of how long it took to put the Moby on, but I honestly was super excited to use either because of how bulky they both were. I love these Solly Baby wraps because of how light weight the fabric is and all the color choices you get. I think I’d actually look forward to wearing one of these for reasons aside from an easy way to keep my baby close and my hands free. The fact that these wraps were made by a mom who was dissatisfied with other carriers on the market is very reassuring!
