Enamoured with this rainbow love from Poland, its 55% fluffy and 45% feathery texture just makes my little one extra squishy like sitting on Cloud 9.
- Design – this prismatic little number is perfect for adding a splash of color on Mommy’s (and baby’s) OOTD; this can be gender-neutral for kids/babies but too bright for Daddies or male wrappers. Size 6 is a lot of fabric plus the silky, cushy material can make it a little “poofy” when bundling it in a hurry upon stowing it away; I had to take the time to fold it really neatly to fit into our small day (baby)bag.
- Weather/season – I wore this around the park for a good 30 minutes on a sunny Sunday morning and wore Baby G again during Mass. I can say that it can get a little warm for both of us but still loaded with sleepy dust that made Baby G sleepy.
- Type/s of carry - tried knotless front cross carry and it can get a lil slippy; start front carries tight to keep the grip. I’m wearing BabyG right now as I make this review in Christina’s ruckless back carry (check her at her Youtube channel: Wrap You In Love) and it is heavenly! I was surprised myself because I’ve only attempted a few back carries in the past and they can get really soggy (and it can be such a workout plus my T-Rex arms are not helping). This wrap is easy to manoeuver, which is a must for back carries I suppose. It was not diggy on the shoulders and I am confident Baby G’s back-of-the-knees are comfy. I am able to write this review with him secured in place!
- Mummy budget – For this brilliant quality, I can say that it is a bit of an upper range and a recommended investment for this size too if you plan on wrapping a growing baby (or another squish in the future ;) don’t tell hubby!)
- Sunny summary – It is something both Mommy and baby would have tons of uppy adventures especially in size 6, you can experiment with many carries and can accommodate any body type and baby’s growing body, too. Perfect for babies’sensitive skin because of its hypoallergenic and antibacterial properties. I give it 4 sprinkles of sleepy dust out of 5! My first wrap is a size 5 so it can be a bit daunting for a first timer and a hobbit like me to work with so much fabric but it was so much fun exploring different carries and finishes with its silky texture. Just keep it tight and y'all be alright! ;)
