Storchenweige - Louise Bio Turquoise (Organic)

We are very excited to announce that we have been confirmed as the new New Zealand distributor of the premium quality baby wraps – Storchenwiege. And we’re giving one away to one lucky person!

The Storchenwiegeยฎ sling was developed and tested alongside midwives and babywearing experts. The weave of the sling is what ensures it can be tied stably and in a way that is good for your baby’s health – supporting their bodies in an anatomically correct way which is so important for their spine and hip development. It is made of strong threads of 100% cotton woven lengthwise and crosswise, creating diagonal elasticity. The sling is shrink-resistant and can be washed at up to 60ยฐC, but should not be put in the tumble-dryer.

Storchenwiegeยฎ baby slings are regularly checked by an independent testing institute. The cotton yarns are also certified pursuant to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, which ensures they contain no harmful substances and they are repeatedly inspected during production. The controlled-production dyes used are non-toxic and contain no heavy metals. These qualities make Storchenwiege the perfect fit for the Aquabub range of natural parenting products!

Would you like the chance to win a Storchenwiege wrap sling in your favourite colour and size? Entry is simple and can be done as follows:

1. Visit the Storchenwiege page on the Aquabub website, browse the range of sling colours and note down your favourite.

    • Thanks for your entry Kylie and for joining us at Facebook. Good luck for the draw!

  49. There are 15 colours that I counted on the Aquabub website – all lovely too! My favourite is Albert, such a cool colour combo.
    I would go for size 8-10 and 3.6m
    I would love a storch wrap as I adored using my moby with DD2, but now that she’s older I can’t do a back carry with the stretchier fabric – the storch would let me keep on using a wrap to carry her as we both love it! And then I could gift my moby on to one of the many friends having babies soon ๐Ÿ™‚ (just can’t let it go without another wrap!)

    • Good luck for the draw Maree. Yes you definitely need a non-stretchy wrap for back carries :0) Thanks for joining us at Facebook too.

  50. Oh, and I have become a fan of the facebook page too! ๐Ÿ™‚ No tweeting here either, sorry.
