Toddlerwearing – A Primer on Toddler Carriers

    People always have something to say when they see me wearing my 3.5 year old daughter in a baby carrier. Some are judgmental in tone, others just inquisitive or slightly concerned for the both of us. I understand the curiosity.

Queen Anne’s Revenge – Unexpected Elegance in a Pirate Wrap

  When I first saw the mock-up for the Queen Anne’s Revenge woven wrap – skeptical does not begin to describe my feelings. Skulls are admittedly not my thing though I know lots of people are really into it. I just wondered if there would be a market for such a thing, and if it […]

Tala Seren – A Woven vs. Ring Sling Comparison

For the first time ever, I was sent both a wrap conversion ring sling and a matching wrap from the same woven colorway. I was pretty excited when Smitten With Wovens sent me their Limited Edition Tala Seren to test and review. I have had the pleasure of trying out basically every wrap this Made […]

Review: Daiesu Jigsaw Woven Wrap

I was very excited when I was contacted by the Malaysian woven wrap company Daiesu. I had been watching this budget brand on social media for some time, and was very curious about them. They sent me a Size 6 (4.6 meter) Jigsaw Mustard to review with my 30 lb 3 year old wrappee. Clearly […]

Review: Vena Cava Crema – A Squishy Natty Ring Sling

Many months ago as Rachel (the mind behind Smitten With Wovens) and I were hanging out, she pulled this Vena Cava Crema fabric sample out of a box and asked me what I thought of it. What did I think of it?! What the heck WAS this? It was like someone bred an ace bandage […]

Review: Icarus Aurora – Ankalia does Cotton

The Icarus Aurora is the very first woven that I have tried from this lovely Australian company, Ankalia Textiles. I have been eyeing their stuff for a really long time now, so I was happy to finally get a chance to try one. Ankalia is the vision of Alex and Kellie, two babywearing Moms themselves […]

Review: Soul Slings – Double Layer Linen Love

Soul Slings have been on my radar since I first saw them on Instagram about a year ago. Upon first glance, I thought immediately of a Sakura Bloom. Their single and double layer cotton slings were gorgeous – very classy and well made. I wanted one immediately. The only problem, was at the time Soul […]

Is It Too Hot to Babywear?

As the temperature creeps up around 90 here in Northern California, I can’t help feel for those in even hotter climates right now. My sympathy especially to those in late stages of pregnancy or nursing a newborn all day. My Gemini daughter was born right in the middle of June back in 2012, and I […]

Review: Wrap Conversion Fly Tai – for the Win!

As always, the folks at 5 Minute recess sent me something totally awesome and budget friendly to review. This time it was one of Fidella’s new Wrap Conversion Meh Dai’s, called the FlyTai. I ended up liking the tester so much that I ordered a few for our local carrier Learning Library. Besides fitting nicely […]
