Somehow in those early weeks of having a newborn the baby gear I got talked into was a cloth wrap. We were at a specialty store in Brooklyn and the sales lady touted her own German-made Storchenwiege as the best piece of used kid gear she had ever bought. "In fact," she told me, "you can use this wrap in a variety of ways as your child grows, I even wear my 5-year-old!" I was sold and after paying my $150 I left with a beautiful woven piece of deep blue cloth and a pamphlet of instructions.
