All appropriate for newborns, it comes down to preference and budget. A 2m length will be appropriate for most people. Especially good woven blends for newborns are cotton, cotton/tencel and cotton/bamboo.
All stretchy wraps (Lillebaby Tie The Knot, Hug.a.Bub, Moby, Manduca Sling, Ergobaby Stretchy Wrap, Boba Wrap)
Most cotton cotton/bamboo, cotton/tencel blends will be appropriate. Here I would recommend choosing one that you love, and sending us a quick message to check that it is easy to wrap for newborns as some are a little harder (e.g. if they are a thicker or have certain fibres in the blend).
