What’s the difference between Semi, Half and Full Wrap Conversions?

Difference Between Wrap Conversions

A common question asked regarding Baby Tula Wrap Conversions is “what’s the difference between the different types?” We created the following graphic to help show you the differences!

While our ‘regular’ Standard, Toddler and Free-to-Grow carriers are made with canvas and twill fabric, our Wrap Conversion Carriers are made using popular woven wraps. The prices vary due to additional cost in sourcing woven wraps. Wrap Conversion Carriers were made for babywearers who love the look and feel of woven wraps but want the simplicity of a buckle carrier.

There are 3 types of wrap conversions: Full, Half, and Semi – while the Half and Full also come in Coast variations!

  • The Full Wrap Conversion is made entirely out of woven wrap material meaning shoulder straps, body panel and waistband are all made with a woven wrap, front and back. (also comes with Coast mesh panel)
  • The Half Wrap Conversion is made with the woven wrap on the outside of the shoulder straps, body panel and waistband, and has canvas material on the inside.The canvas reinforces the wrap which can make it more supportive. (also comes with Coast mesh panel)
  • The Semi Wrap Conversion is made with the woven wrap only on the panel of the body and canvas on the shoulder straps and waistband.
  • The Coast version of the Wrap Conversion is made with a center panel of breathable mesh and a mesh hood. This version provides added airflow.

When it comes down to it, all Baby Tula Carriers will support your baby and/or toddler ergonomically and comfortably, canvas, semi, half or full!

Customize Your Carrier

How to Customize Your Baby Carrier

We’re all about expression, which is why we have so many different carrier options to help you find your perfect style. But as special as our carriers are, have you ever thought of creating your own one-of-a-kind Tula Carrier? With the addition of a custom hood, reach straps and/or suck pads, it’s possible to create a baby carrier that is unique to you and your baby!

Suck Pads

What are Suck Pads? Suck pads are detachable covers to put over your arm straps where they meet the panel. Sometimes, babies like to try and suck on the arm straps. By adding suck pads to your carrier, you’re able to easily remove them to wash, prevent wear to your carrier, AND add extra flare!

Reach Straps

What are Reach Straps? Reach straps connect to the hood on your baby carrier. When you’re back carrying, reach straps give you added length to be able easily reach and pull the hood over baby while they’re sleeping!

Custom Hoods

A really unique way to personalize your carrier is by getting a custom hood to replace hood that comes with your carrier! This is the ultimate way to add flair in a theme or style that speaks to you.

We’ve seen people create animals, put inspirational quotes, make a hood in a matching or coordinating print of the carrier…the options are endless!
