I was sent a wheelchair cape and a car seat cape in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
Carsyn is cold almost all of the time. We will take him out for a minute and he will start to shiver. He has very tight muscles because of his spastic cerebral palsy, which makes it very hard to get a coat on and off of him. As soon as you try to pull his arm through he tightens it up and pulls back.
I started researching different ways to keep him warm without the struggle. I came across Wrapt, and got so excited!! It was exactly what I was looking for. Julia the creator was inspired to make these because of her wheelchair bound daughter. I loved her story and I am so excited to share her small business with you.
We have used this wheelchair cape so much since we got it. It snaps at the top right behind the neck so it stays on. The length is perfect, it covers all the way to his toes and it is very easy to tuck in beside him so it doesn’t get caught up in the wheels. Wrapt offers many different sizes, patterns, and weights to choose from. My only regret is not getting one sooner.
Wrapt also sent me a car seat/stroller/baby wearing cape for Prestyn. We love using that in the car seat instead of a jacket. You are able to keep this on while you transfer from the car seat to the stroller. Plus they won’t be able to throw the blanket down for you to run over! I can’t count how many times that happened!
This way you can keep your child safe and warm, without the struggle of taking a jacket on and off every time you get in and out of the car. It is really important that your child does not wear a coat while riding in their car seat. You can see more information here.
