Bijou's sailboat baby carrier Newport Saltwater has docked, shimmering in a minty aqua green and ready to make you feel like you're babywearing in paradise! Bring on the sunshine and the beaches and the vacation fun! Newport Marina is a deeper teal color. Both 100% Cotton.
Newport Haven's ecru cotton warp provides a sturdy base for a heathered blue mix of Tencel and recycled Eco2cotton weft. We call it EcoCel, and we also call it magical.
Saltwater is both soft and easy to use. It works perfectly for newborns and on up to independent toddlers who might like to rest their little legs on occasion.
Newport Saltwater ring slings feature a floating gathered shoulder for cushion (without the bulk of extra padding) and safety tested SlingRings. They can be worn on either the right or left shoulder. Ring slings in this fabric may be available >here<. Similarly, check our >>Style + Home<< section for throw blankets and scarves that might be in stock as well!
Layaway is always an option. Please use code RESERVE as you check out.
The color varies with the light. These stunning photos by Gloria Folaron Photography represent some of the looks this product achieves. However, the color may be different in person than it appears on your screen. Be assured it is beautiful!
Gorgeous photos outdoors, some of a brown-skinned woman wearing a baby on her back and some of a white woman wearing a baby on her back in a cheerful aqua/mint colored woven wrap with white sailboats of various sizes as the design.
If you do not know where to start, please read this page and also see our infographic for determining your "base" size HERE.
Woven wraps are long parallelograms of fabric. The size indicates the length along one rail (a long edge) as follows (all plus or minus 0.1 meters):
Size 2 = 2.7 meters // Size 3 = 3.2 meters // Size 4 = 3.7 meters // Size 5 = 4.2 meters // Size 6 = 4.7 meters // Size 7 = 5.2 meters // Size 8 = 5.7 meters // Size 9 = 6.2 meters // Size 10 = 6.7 meters
Which size should you buy?
Many people with a baby can do a front wrap cross carry (see the FWCC tutorial here) in a size 6 woven wrap, which means that person's "base" size is a 6. Larger frames, those with larger ribcages or busts, or those with big toddlers might be base 7 or 8 or 9, and smaller frames might be base 5 or occasionally base 4. However, any person can use any size woven wrap.
With a woven wrap, you can wear your baby or toddler in a variety of ways: on your front, hip, and/or back (instruction manual provided) -- and no need to "size up" as baby grows if you have a Bijou! We are also proud that any person can wear any size woven wrap Bijou makes (3 through 9, generally). The size simply determines the carries done by that person with that wrap.
There are hundreds of ways to babywear with a woven. A short wrap is nice for on-the-go. Long wraps are great for reinforcing passes that add support. Medium wraps are versatile; some love them for nursing in a front wrap cross carry tied under bum (see the FWCC TUB How To).
During its first bath your wrap will shrink slightly, which is normal. We cut the fabric so that it will shrink to the size that you ordered (within tolerances).
ENJOY! See the included instructional booklet for carries specific to your purchase, find the same instructions at the how-to link above in the menu, or watch video tutorials HERE!
