When you buy a woven wrap new (and sometimes even used) they are probably going to need to be broken in. They generally will not come to you soft and supple (although some silks, cashmere, and wool usually come buttery soft) and they need to be worked in order for the fabric to break down and become soft and easier to work with. There are several ways you can do this….it’s become a habit for me now while I watch TV, to break in my wraps. Wearing them does it’s fair amount of breaking in, but for some wraps…like linen, even wearing them regularly just isn’t going to do the job.
This is the first way I ever learned to break in wraps, and it also looks quite pretty
I recently learned how to do this method from a babywearing friend, and I have to say it’s super effective and FAST!
Making a hammock for your kids, can also do the trick!
Sleep on it
Sit on it
Play tug of war
Weave between your crib bars and pull back and forth
and I am sure a hundred-and-one more ways are out there
