Hug a Bug Review and Giveaway!

Hug a Bug Baby is your one stop shop for Gauze Wraps! Ive used a number of Gauze wraps. 1 being the ever so popular Bali Breeze wrap by Gypsy Mama. I can tell you from personal experience... The wrap Im showcasing in this post was every bit as nice as the Gypsy Mama wrap Ive used.

Gauze material is different depending on where you buy it. I made my own Gauze wrap when Taite was a newborn.... it was okay... but the gauze material was a bit stiff and didnt feel very soft.

The gauze that is used to make these wraps at Hug a Bug Baby are really nice. Its a quality Gauze material that most cant find in many stores.

The advantage to Gauze are a number of things...

1. They give just enough that you can wrap the baby comfortable and yourself.
2. They are breathable and light weight for warmer weather.
3. They dont over stretch so no saggy baby after 10 minutes.

If you need a more affordable wrap for back wearing check out Hug a Bug Baby! They have a large selection. Not only do they carry wraps... they also have ring slings, pouches, mei tais as well as many more fun items.

One of the items I found really neat was the toy mats they sell!

I was given this wrap to keep... I own a number of wraps... I know with my collection already this wrap wont get used as much as it should. Its beautiful and because Ive been blessed with many other wraps I figured Id giveaway this particular one to one of my readers.

Hug a Bug Baby loved the idea!



So! that being said.

Sorry not Mr. Widget.. for some reason I couldnt get it to work this time...

If you dont have a blog you can just leave your email address... Warning about this though. The past two times a non blogger has been drawn I havent heard back from them. I email them, no reply. So I end up having to draw a new winner. I usually give them 2 weeks to reply back... if after two weeks nothing... then I have to draw someone else. So please, if you dont have a blog check back to any giveaway you sign up to see if you win... I will email you as well.

To all bloggers. If you could mention this giveaway on your blog... as well as Hug A Bug Baby. Maybe showcase one of the carriers you like on her site :-)

Thanks everyone! The giveaway ends Saturday evening.

  15. Hi Drea,

    I just had my first baby and feel very strongly about babywearing. My husband would say I am also very crazy about baby carriers :-)so of course I connected with your babywearing sections inmediatly. Thank you.

    So I was in and out of your blog enjoying it tremendously and hoping to find out where you got the beutiful red wrap you were showing in some pictures!

    Of course I would love to win the wrap but most of all I hope it's won by someone who needs it and deserves it very much.

    Not sure if this is the place to comment so much (I'm new to this new world of blogging) so if not please excuse me.

    Love your blog and your pictures, thank you.

  33. I have yet to try a wrap. I think this might be the last category of baby carriers to try. I am jumping in to this babywearing thing quite fast and I don't even have babies of my own! Although, I do care for babies/toddlers everyday and find babywearing to be great!

  53. Did I make it in time??

    I love to wear my little girl, and she loves it too! I only have a few wraps that I made myself with some fabric I bought on clearance. They work well, but I've never had a "real" one to know the difference or what I am doing wrong...or right.

    Thank you for introducing me to babywearing, I'm loving every minute of it!
