How to choose the perfect size ?
Your choice of wrap size will depend on a babywearer - not on a baby.
You have to remember that some carries will ‘eat’ more and some less wrap fabric.
There are five wrap sizes to chose from:
Size 4 - (length 3.6 m, width 0.7 m) is suitable for following carries: kangaroo carry, hip kangaroo carry and simple ruck carry.
Size 5 - (length 4.2 m, width 0.7 m) is perfect for petit and short person
Size 6 – (length 4.6 m, width 0.7 m) is perfect for average built person (up to size 42/44 (14/16))
Size 7 – (length 5.2 m, width 0.7 m) is perfect for person wearing size 42/44 (14/16) and bigger and also for a tall person (women over 178cm tall and men over 185cm tall – even slim built)
Size 8 - (length 6.0 m, width 0.7 m) is perfect for larger parents and for fancy finishes
There are two sizes to chose from when talking about stretchy wraps (please remember that the maximum baby’s weight is 10kg):
Size M - (length 4.5 m, width 0.55 m) is a medium size perfect for average built person
Size L - (length 5 m, width 0.55 m) is a standard size stretchy wrap, perfect for tall person, or one who wears bigger size. But it is also used by petite wearers who do not mind longer tails, and like to wrap a baby with three layers of a wrap according to babywearing guidelines.
They are available in one universal size – 2.1m long by 0.7m wide. Perfect for everyone. Ring Sling can be used for babies up to 15kg.
Please remember that LennyLamb wraps are chemically processed in final stages of manufacturing, so they can shrink a bit during first wash (3-5%).
When choosing a carrier it is babies age / size that is the most important.

WRAP TAI CARRIER
This is a special type of a carrier as it can be used earlier than other carriers. This is because of the wrap straps that also support your baby's body on the sides.
The best way to find the size the best for your baby is to look at the dimensions of the carrier (available in carriers' description on our website) and adjust it to your baby. The bottom of the panel shouldn't be wider than the distance between the knees of the baby. Ideally, the edges of the panel should be under your baby’s knees.
