Styrker den motoriske og sociale udvikling - uden overstimulering

Fordele:

Fremmer barnets motoriske udvikling. Ved at være i samme højde som mor/far/partner bliver babyen let integreret i det sociale liv. Babyen føler sig tryg ved at kunne se ud, uden at blive overstimuleret. 
Ved baby/det lille barn skal viklen bindes så stoffet støtter nakken/baghoved - indtil barnet selv holder sit hoved sikkert. Fx ved binding, der krydser over barnets ryg skal den op omkring det nederste af barnets baghoved.
Ved et større baby, der mestrer at holde sit hoved sikkert og sagtens kan sidde uden at falde sammen og evt. kravle (fra ca. 8-9 mdr.), så kan man vælge at have en arm fri eller begge, så barnet bedre kan følge med i det, der sker, og styrke sin motorik.
Hvornår:
Fra baby holder hoved selv og op til 5 år.

Svøb babyens arme, og barnets hænder skal være oppe ved dets ansigt. Mestrer barnet at sidde selv og opbygget en stærk ryg muskulatur, kan man lade den have en eller begge arme fri.

Stimulering af for tidligt fødte - psykisk-emotionelt og fysisk udvikling

Man kan lave hud-mod-hud kontakt - også kaldet Kangaroo Care, hvor den nyfødte bæres i "en pung" ligesom ved en kænguru mor. Husk, altid alt vaske en ny vikle før brug: For renhed og stoffets stræk kan "sætte sig på plads" med optimalt støtte og blødhed. (Forsker Dr. Edgar Rey Sanabria implementerede i 1970´erne hud-mod-hud/kangaroo care og så straks et fald i infektioner og forbedret levedygtighed hos nyfødte.)

Om vikler - spørgsmål og svar 

The difference between a wrap and a sling:

A sling is shorter in length than a wrap. A sling is long enough to be tied over one shoulder and a back carry where a wrap is long enough to be tied over two shoulders.

At Rebozo Copenhagen we sell rebozos for slings in the lengths: 2,20 meters, 2,85 meters and 3,00 meters.

Vi forhandler rebozos til vikler i længderne: 3,70 meter, 4,20 meter og 4,70 meter.

- All our rebozos size 1-3 have multifunction: carry sling from newborn (from 3200 grams) 0-5 years, scarf and for rebozo massage (pregnant massage).

Here you can read about the benefits of choosing a wrap from Rebozo Copenhagen.

The advantage of choosing a wrap from Rebozo Copenhagen

Our rebozos size 4-6 fit in length to tie a wrap, which you tie over two shoulders. They are similar to a woven wrap with diagonal stretch, but because they are handwoven and of particularly high quality, they are much easier to tie.

De føles lette og luftige, men har samme gram per kvadratmeter = 270 gram per kvm. De er meget stærke og holdbare, så du trygt kan bruge din rebozo til vikle for dit barn fra 0-5 år.
Vores rebozo vikler er i 100% bomuld er de bløde, slidstærke, allergivenlige, transporterer fugt væk fra kroppen, varmer, når det er køligt og køler, når det er lunt.

It is an advantage to choose a handwoven rebozo for the wrap or sling

Rebozo wraps are safe, ergonomic and high quality

Several studies show that newborns and small children need to be as close to their parents as possible for better mental-emotional, and for physical development. A rebozo wrap forms a wonderful and perfect nest for your baby. It provides optimal support for a growing baby's head and spine.

Keeps baby calm and happy

Babies who are in close contact with their mother/father are more comfortable, calm and secure. The baby feels comfortable looking without being overstimulated. By staying at the same height as mom/dad/partner the baby is easily integrated into social life. You can breastfeed, bottle-make or do other things with your hands free.

Reduces Colic

In a rebozo wrap, belly-to-belly and vertical position aids digestion and reduces colic.

When talking about the difference between stretch wraps and woven wraps in general, the difference is:

En stretch wrap has much more stretch in the fabric. This means that it is easier to tie than a regular woven wrap and the baby can be placed in the wrap after you have tied it. There are two types of stretch wraps: one type stretches only one way - lengthwise, the other stretches both ways - length and width. Because of its stretch, it cannot carry as much weight as a woven wrap, as it is not "firm" enough. That's why stretch wraps are mostly used for newborns. As opposed to a woven wrap, which can carry both baby and a small child up to 20 kg.

En woven wrap provides maximum support for both mother and baby. A woven wrap has diagonal stretch, which makes the fabric more firm and thus provides a lot more support than a stretch wrap. It can therefore also carry a heavier child and you can carry your child for a long time. A woven wrap distributes the weight differently than a stretch wrap and provides more support, therefore it is ergonomically better for mother and child and you can carry your child for longer periods of time without back pain. A woven wrap can be tied in many different ways. It also looks very pretty. There are bindings that are easy and better for beginners and then there are also more advanced ones that are for the experienced.

When tying a woven wrap the baby should be placed on the stomach/chest first, where you then tie the wrap around the baby. It takes a little practice, which we recommend you do with e.g. a pillow first. The baby can be carried on the front of the stomach/chest or on the back/back carrier. When carrying on the back in a wrap, you put the cloth on the child and get the child on its back, then you tie the wrap. You can see more examples of binding/babywearing in our video guides below on this page.

The difference compared to a rebozo wrap as a woven wrap

A rebozo wrap has several similarities with a regular woven wrap. It has diagonal stretch and maximum support. It weighs the same as other woven wraps - 270 grams per square metre. It is also tied around the child as a starting point and can be tied in many different ways.

A handwoven rebozo wrap: maximum support for mother and baby, easy to tie and at the same time very soft

The Rebozo wrap from Rebozo Copenhagen differs in that it is handwoven on a pedal loom - not on a factory assembly line. Knowledge of the weaving technique of the rebozo has been passed down through many generations and is a proud family tradition for artisans in Mexico. Our wrap is very much both durable and strong in its structure, but unlike regular woven wraps it doesn't feel stiff or very firm. It provides maximum support, yet feels easy to tie and is very soft. That's why many people are delighted and surprised when they try our rebozos compared to other woven wraps. For the difference is clearly felt.

Because our rebozos are so soft and easy to tie, while providing ergonomically correct and secure support, our rebozos can be used from newborn and up to 5 years. Regular woven wraps are usually used from 6 months.

You can see our selection of beautiful rebozos for wraps here:

You can buy an authentic handwoven rebozo in our webshop. We work with various artisans who have passed down their expertise through generations. Each features their local family workshop in Mexico with the family's chosen colours, texture and finished fringe knotted/tied by hand in the family's unique design.

We recommend that you read our safety guide before tying and carrying your child in slings or wraps. You can see our safety guide here:

It is important that you wash your product before use to ensure that the fabric is completely clean and to allow the fabric to 'set' in place so that the rebozo is fully functional and soft and easy to tie and apply. If you follow our washing instructions, there's a good chance you'll have your rebozo for a lifetime with all the good memories it holds. You can see our washing instructions here:

Safety and washing instructions

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

  • Distance: you should be able to kiss the child's head. The rebozo must support the child's neck/back of the head. Between the child's head- from the chin to its chest, 2 adult fingers should be able to fit under the child's chin. To ensure free airways. Check this regularly.
  • The child's hands up by its face.
  • Free airways, the child's face, nose and mouth must not be covered.
  • Round the back of the child, make sure the fabric is smoothed and firm up the child's back.
  • Frog position - Frog position: knees above/raised above buttocks.

We recommend that you occasionally check that the baby is at a good temperature, neither too hot nor too cold. Check the baby's neck by feeling it: If it is warm and wet/sweaty, the baby is too warm. Then you can take a break from carrying the baby or take off some clothes or wear skin-to-skin. If the neck is cold, the baby is too cold. Put on some more clothes on the baby. The baby's neck should be warm and reasonably dry.

It is recommended to carry the child facing the mother/father/partner for safety and to avoid too many impressions - up to 8-9 months at least before turning the child outwards or carrying it on the back.

Choosing a rebozo for a sling or wrap and following our safety instructions will ensure an ergonomically correct position for your baby, and as such there are no restrictions on how long baby can sit in the sling or wrap. You should go with what you feel most comfortable with on your baby's behalf.

A rebozo can also be called a kind of baby carrier, as it is used to carry the baby and can be made adjustable with slip-knot knots or rings. As it has a woven stretch and follows the movements of mother and baby, it is more comfortable and gentle on baby's spine when used as a sling or wrap.

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

Wash the product before use*: For cleanliness and for the stretch of the fabric to "set". Tie the fringes together with a hair elastic and wash at 30º.

*Do not tumble dry.

WAVE: Hang to dry "in waves" - over 4 clotheslines. It is best for the rebozo.

*We recommend that you use a mild and unscented detergent/washing powder. E.g. labelled with "Svanemærket" and "Astma-Allergi Danmark".)
