What age can you start using the wrap? Is it suitable from birth?
YES from newborn! Also premature babies benefit from the bonding of using a wrap. If your baby is born under 8lbs please get a professional to check your positioning when using the wrap. That could be a doctor, nurse or at a sling library. For low birth-weight babies and preemies it is especially important to be vigilant about checking baby's positioning and paying close attention to baby's breathing and sounds.
My baby is 6 months old, is he/she too old?
Absolutely not! We usually say from newborn to around 18 months is the perfect age to start babywearing, although many parents and carers go on to carry their children up to 3 years old or longer as they find it so useful and rewarding! Our original baby wrap is great for newborns up to around 18 months, and our new MIDI is ideal for front or back carries from around 6 months up to around 3 years.
Can I breastfeed in this? How do you do it?
You need to loosen the wrap slightly and lift boob up. Keep babies head to the side so airway is clear. Here's a video of me feeding in mine : https://www.facebook.com/LittleMunchkinMarket/videos/721097148068072/ remember to tighten the wrap back up once the feed has finished!
Will this wrap fit me?
One size definately fits all. Our wrap comes in 550cm pieces and will fit larger mamas and dads. When wrapping, you would simply tie a knot at your back - it's all in the instruction booklet.
I've lost my instruction booklet, can I get a new copy?
What is your postage guide?

How do you wash your Munchkins wrap?
Washing your wrap is easy. You can machine wash your Munchkins wrap on a 40 degree or less wash. It can also go in the tumble dryer, you may notice it shrink slightly (the length of our wrap accommodates for it) but it will stretch out again after being worn.
Will this make my baby really clingy?
Research shows that baby being next to you for the first few months makes them less likely to be clingy and more likely to explore as they have reassurance and comfort knowing you'll be there for them!
