How to Belly Wrap with your Chekoh Wrap

How to Belly Wrap with your Chekoh Wrap

Posted by Krystal Tupi on

This is one for our pregnant Mama's - now of course you have your Chekoh ready for your little ones arrival but did you know you can bust open that bag and start using your Wrap as more then just a carrier?

Let's talk Belly Wrapping you may or may not be familiar with this term and it might draw your thoughts towards belly bands or post partum recovery products or shapewear, well this type of wrapping is more useful in late pregnancy for a brief respite and to help 'lighten the load' so to say.

A quick run down of what it is: so you start with a Wrap (we suggest of course our Chekoh stretchy Wrap carrier) now you'll tie the Wrap over your big beautiful pregnant belly, you stretch and spread the fabric across your back and shoulders, under your bump and tighten/adjust your Wrap for ultimate belly support and comfort.

Not too confusing (it really isn't, trust us), don't worry we have a great little video for you here to take a look in more detail and follow along at home:
