SOLLY BABY WRAP: Baltic // Coral // Berry // Heather Grey

Before I had kids I remember seeing people wearing their baby in wraps and thinking it was the most adorable thing!! I got a few Solly Baby Wraps before I had Atticus and the first time I took him outside he was in a purple Solly!! (remember this pic?!) I have lots and lots of good memories wearing my babies. Atticus basically stayed in a Solly the whole 4 weeks him and I were in Europe when he was 3 months old! Something about wearing your baby feels special. They are all snuggly and cozy in there and its my favorite having them so close! Today I am showing you four ways I wore Rosie while in California. I love to wear her while I am cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, getting around the city, in airports, or any time I need my hands with Atticus! Some people have asked how to wear them with certain outfits so here are some different ways to wear a Solly wrap!

1. WITH BEACHWEAR. Wraps look so cute at the beach – over a swimsuit or a coverup!
2. LAYERING PIECES. If you dont want to see the straps in back you can always throw on a chambray or plaid button up overtop a tee or tank! Wraps also work great under a sweater or coat. I also recommend always putting a sweater over the wrap so if you decide to take it off you dont have to unwrap the baby.
3. SIMPLE LOOKS. If you are wearing jeans and a tee or a simple look add a colored wrap to brighten up your look.
4. DRESSES. I think wraps look so pretty over a dress. I try to stick to flowy dresses or body con to keep the look flattering.
Hope you guys like! xo

  1. Hi Amber-

    I am expecting my first child in November. We are super excited for her arrival but we are having trouble deciding on a baby carrier or wrap for her. Do you have recommendations for when she is a new born and one that is easy for my husband to use?

    Thanks!!!

  2. Hey Amber! Where are Rosie’s heandbands from? I love thème! Thank you

  3. Beautiful pictures and Rosie is soo cute! How do u manage to stay put together with two under two? Also where is your striped top from? (The one with the flannel)

  4. Hey, Amber! I had my second son 7 weeks ago and have switched from ergo baby carriers to wraps and I love them so far! I was wondering if you are able to nurse Rosie while she’s still wrapped up facing you? Ive attempted to nurse my little Daed a couple times in his wrap. And do you tie your wrap a different way? It looks really pretty.

  5. dear amber,

    you and your adorable family look so happy! I think you guys are goals for so many people ♡ so please stay healthy, happy and awesome – because the world needs every little sunshine she could get!

    kisses,
    chrissi from vienna

    1. Thank you so much!! That is so sweet of you 🙂 Thanks for following along and for the comment!! xo

  6. Are the colors of the Solly wraps you posted correct? I love the color on you but it looks so different on their website. The Baltic blue looks so much lighter and brighter in your post. I would like to order it but wanted to make sure the color is correct. Thank you! Your family is gorgeous!

    1. Yes they are 🙂 They may look a tad different because of the filters I put on the photos. I hope that helps!! Thanks for the comment!! xo

  7. Your family is adorable! Do you mind if I ask where A’s one piece is from??

  8. Absolutely so stunning and beautiful!!! ???? Totally agree having them so close is truly so very special!!! OMG!! Little Rosie Belle is beautiful just like her mom!!!! ????????’d this post! David is a great photographer!!! A is too dang cute!! ❤️❤️ ya!!! xoxoxo

  9. I just LOVE your blog and comment sometimes to tell you how lovely you and you’re family are. But this time, I would like to thank you for the incredible quality of your work. You always provide the most beautiful family pictures I’ve ever seen, not just 1 or 2 (which would be enough, they are already gorgeous) but a lot, it’s a real pleasure for the eyes, AND you talk to us, you explain, you confide. I really appreciate how dedicated and perfectionnist you are with your blog and seriously can’t get enough of it.
    Thank you so much, et lots of love from France !

    1. Thank you so much!! That is such a nice compliment!! I appreciate that so much, it means the world to me. Thanks for the love and support!! xo

  10. Love, love, love this post! I’m a huge fan of baby wearing and can’t wait to wear my own someday! There is something so special about having a little one all snuggled in tight to you. You two are so beautiful!

    1. Thank you so much!! I am happy you liked it 🙂 And I agree! It creates a special bond, I love it.

  11. You are so stunning! I always love looking at all your pics bc you make being a mommy look so pretty!!

  12. What a beautiful set of photos Amber, so stunning! You all look so handsome! And how great that those slings come up in so many nice colours. I am a big fan of baby carrier – I have not tried the Solly Baby which, by the way look so comfy for baby and mum – but I have used 2 different ones for my 3 little ones and I am still caring baby #3 who is 16months in one of them. It gives me a chance to cuddle her and it’s so brilliant too cause I can have my older boy and girl holding my 2 spare hands – and everyone is happy:)
    Lots of love from a Parisian girl in London!

    1. Thank you so much Julie!! That’s so nice of you to say 🙂 And I agree, I will take any chance to cuddle and have those special moments, it is the best! Thanks for reading!! I appreciate your comment! xo

  13. Does your hubsband take all these pictures of you? What an amazing photographer! I love every way you are wearing the wraps and your adorable baby girl. I also love how your outfit goes well with whatever Rosie’s wearing. Inspiring to me for when we start having kids :))

    1. Yes he does! And thank you!! What a nice compliment 🙂 I will definitely pass that along. And aww thanks!! You will definitely love carrying around your baby when you’re a mama! xo

  14. Love these photos! So beautiful. Also dying to know where the blue/white striped top is from?!

      1. Thank you, Amber! So sweet of you to reply! I’ll have to look it up on Zara now – I’m slightly obsessing over it!!

          1. Oh my gosh THANK YOU! You are amazing. I love it, as well as your blog! Does this top run pretty true to size? I am totally ordering it! Thank you! xoxo

          2. Yes it does! It is a bit of an oversized style to begin with which I like 🙂

  15. I can’t get over how stunning that photo of you and Rosie is (the profile one of you and her in the sunset)

  16. I think you should frame and hang the pictures with you and the kiddos in the flowers. Simply beautiful! 🙂

  17. I too always think it is the most adorable thing when people wear their babies in a wrap. It is definitely my plan to use one when I have children, it seems like the best way to bond and stay close while still being able to get things done at the same time.
    Also, I love all of your photos, but these are probably some of, if not absolutely, my favorite photos you have ever shared. They are just touching and beautiful.

    1. Yes it definitely is!! I love how close I feel to her, and the cuddles are the best 🙂 And thank you so much!! Wow I love hearing that! Glad you liked the post.

  18. Aaah! So glad you recommended this Amber! I’m considering getting one for my next babe but couldn’t decide if I thought they added to an outfit or not. You just proved that they can look so cute! Thanks!

    1. Thank you so much!! That is seriously the best compliment ever 🙂 You are so sweet!! xo

  24. hi Amber! I’ve been following your blog for awhile; your life is absolutely a dream!
    I’ve always wanted to go on adventures like you, and this May I get to go to Italy to visit my bf who is deployed in Europe! we are going to rome and the almafi coast, and I remember in your post about positano you mentioned how you guys had managed to travel on a budget and even stayed in a hotel on the almafi coast for only $41/night! and you also added that if anyone wanted to know anything about it to go ahead and email you, so I’m doing that now 🙂 do you remember the name of any places you stayed or any yummy places there or in rome that are a must try? any bit of advice or fun ideas you can give me I would absolutely love and appreciate!! 🙂 thanks so much! XO

  25. I would like info on the jumper with the fringe from the beach picture

  26. Dear Amber,
    I follow your blog from years now, but I never leave a comment. Your family is beautiful and I love every post you wrote!
    It is so good that you babywear your kids but (I hope that you don’t take this wrong) take care of the good position: baby’s legs have to be supported from knee to knee. Read more at http://hipdysplasia.org/baby-wearing.

  27. So adorable! Love the looks! ❤️❤️ Btw: where did you get your sandals?

  28. I love this! I definitely want to wear my second baby more than I did the first. My first doesn’t love it very much because I think he’s not used to it. What do you edit your camera photos and your iPhone photos with? These pictures are lovely!

    1. Thanks so much Emily!! And yes, you should definitely try it out with your second 🙂 For editing pictures I use a program called Lightroom for blog photos and VSCO too for some iphone pictures. I hope that helps!!

      1. What filters do you use most often with vsco? I always have a hard time finding one that looks natural. Thank you!

  29. The pictures you take with your babies always makes me so happy! I’m not having kids any time soon, but it’s also so great that you share your mommy tips with your readers. I’m taking notes, and I am excited to have my own little ones in the future. Thanks for the tips 🙂

    1. Aww thank you so much!! I am so glad you liked the post 🙂 And you can save these posts for the future when you have little ones 😉 xo

  30. I have heard so many great things about Solly baby wraps! I never used one with my daughter (I used another type), but I need to get some for when my little guy gets here in May! 🙂

    1. Yeah definitely check them out!! And congrats on your upcoming baby boy! How exciting 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Pam!! These are definitely some of my favorite shots 🙂

  31. Rosie and A are way too cute!!!!???????? can’t get over them! (Your hair looks amazing btw!)

  32. I love sollywrap!!! It’s such a lifesaver. Except my baby tends to nap in it and I just end up cuddling with her on the rocker =still nothing gets done :).

    Where is your blue and white shirt from ?

    1. I agree!! I don’t know what I would do without them 🙂 And the top is from Zara. xo

  33. Oh man! These are so sweet! I love it when mamas wear babies! You look so sweet <3

    1. You are too nice!! Thank you so much!! So glad you like the post 🙂

  34. How do you breastfeed while wearing the wrap? I am new to baby wearing and have not figured that out yet

  35. I’m obsessed with the styling of these outfits – especially matching the Solly wraps! The Flower Fields were one of my little guy’s first stops out of the house. You came at a perfect time!

  36. I love these photos! Where did you get your white dress from? I’m looking for something just like that for my bridal shower 🙂

    Thanks!

    1. You have a lovely family! Where did you buy white dress/skirt from?

  37. What an amazing idea the two most adorable babies doesn’t hurt!!! Too cute!

  38. I’ve seen the wraps a ton and they’re soooo cute and seem to go with anything. Not that matters, but it’s always great when you can look stylish! Anyways, love these family photos and I can’t believe how big Rosie is getting – so cute!

    stay styled,

  39. Dear Amber like always you guys look great. I was thinking it’ll be cool if you do a tutorial on how to put on the baby wrap with baby Rosie :-). Something to think about 🙂 love xoxo

    1. I’m so on board with this idea! Hopefully getting a Solly for our first this summer ???? and would love a tutorial! It looks complicated… Haha

  40. This is quite possibly my favorite sequence of photos that you have ever posted. They are so natural yet still show motherhood in all of its splendor and beauty. I appreciate this so much because it gets me excited to become a mom someday! I always wanted to be a mom more than anything, but so many people try to scare me by telling me things like “You’ll lose your freedom”, “You’ll never get a full-night’s sleep again”, “You’ll never get to go out on dates with your husband again and whenever you do try to good luck getting a sitter”, “You’ll look like crap all the time”, “Your body will never look the same”, “You won’t be able to accomplish all of the things you dreamed of like traveling the world”, etc etc…I know I’m not a mom, but while I know there are many challenges in motherhood, I know there’s so much more to it than that and that in the end, it’s so worth it. And, I know some of those statements just aren’t true (but I guess every woman has a different experience). I’m sure you’ve had your own struggles being a mom, but at the end of the day, you are proof that motherhood can be the coolest, most fulfilling thing. 😉 Thank you for being so positive!

  41. You look so gorgeous in every pic 😀 and your babies are so cute!! I just got a solly baby wrap and it’s amazing!… by the way, where did you get your sandals?? They are so pretty 😉

  42. Amber, I love love love the white dress you are wearing! Where is it from?

  43. Ah thanks for this! I’ve been trying to figure out how best to wear my son.

    I have found it hard as he’s only 6 weeks old, I find I can’t get enough support for his neck, what age did you start wearing them?

    Wonderfulandwhimsical.com

  44. Love these colorful photos! I am trying to contact you on your blog in terms of a partnership and its not letting me send the message!? I have gone and Instagram DM’d you!

  45. I love the baby wraps it is so much easier to get around the house, and well just about anywhere. I have got to know where Rosie’s headbands are from!! I keep checking every post to see if you’ll let us know because they are so stinking cute! I want to get some for my little one. I will check out the solly wraps for baby No.2 coming in August! Thanks for all the lovely posts!

  46. You are seriously mommy goals! I’ve never seen a wrap been pulled off in so many colors so flawlessly! I’m also obsessed with the quality and editing of your pictures, would you care to give me your secret? (; just kidding! So happy to see you enjoying the babies! So sad I’ve missed you in Disney, Miami, and New York while I’ve we’ve both been there!

  47. So beautiful! I love wearing my little angel. At what age did you stop wearing Atticus in the solly wrap? My little babe is 6 months and I’m not sure how much longer she’ll fit! And I love the Carlsbad flower field. You’re lucky they let you in the middle!!! ????????

  48. I love these photos! I’ve been following your hair styling since before the babies! I can’t believe how much has changed since then. I live less than 5 minutes away from the flower fields and work at the resort above them! small world. hope you enjoyed Carlsbad, my hometown 🙂 xoxo

  49. I absolutely love these photos! I love wearing babies so much! It’s so much more comfortable than carrying them on the hip. My favorite photos are the ones in the photo field ???? I hope you guys had a great weekend as well as a fabulous trip!

  50. I just purchased my first Solly Baby Wrap (blush) for baby No. 2, and I’m SO excited to wear it. Your styling of it is perfection. Thank you for the inspiration!

  51. Are those the Carlsbad Flower Fields? I grew up in San Diego and seeing these photos made me think of home and how much I miss it. As always you look gorgeous and I hope you guys had a great time!

  52. These pictures are stunning. I feel like you can just see the connection you have with Rosie. I love all of these! Thanks for sharing.

  53. I think these are the most beautiful photos ever! And if i ever have a baby i would want to have them close too! So beautiful.

  54. Super cute. I love all the colorful wraps. I have the MoBy wrap in black and I wear it daily around the house. With 3 it is absolutely needed. I cook and clean and homeschool with it on, and I agree I like just having the baby close.

  55. My Godmom Enid is from Liberia and when my kids were small she was my nanny. She would wrap my kids in African Kufi cloths and tie them on her back and do chores around the house. When I first saw her do this it scared me to death but the kids actually liked it.

    She also used the cloths to wrap around my waist when I first had them. This was way before Spanx came out and my waist is still pretty snatched thanks to my Enid lol! Love all the colors these Solly Baby wraps come in, I will have to tell my friends. xoxo

  56. Hello major family goals right here!! Love the vibes of these pictures!
    Where are A’s dungarees from? They are super cute!

  57. I loved your pictures so much that I just ordered the Baltic Solly Wrap! Couldn’t resist 🙂

  58. Ok, these are all amazing, but the photos by the water are my favorite! And A definitely is one happy camper. 🙂 PERFECT shirt for him! <3

  59. These photos are breath taking! Amazing work.
    The wraps look so snuggly.

  60. Love this post! So cute! Also I know you get asked this question A lot but Im dying to know how you edit your pictures/ what lenses and settings to use! I think it would be so cool if you and David collaborated to show us how its done! Just a thought! Keep doing what you’re doing! I love the blog!

  61. Looks so pretty. I also love to wear my Babys it feels so close. So speacial

  62. Love love love baby wearing! I was so sad when my babe grew out of our wrap and got too independent for the Ergo. its such a great bonding experience.
