Review: Volare Ibis – Lalu Experiments With Combed Cotton

This is the second opportunity I have had to test a woven wrap by Lalu Wovens– an Atlanta based baby carrier company who burst onto the scene last year. This time they sent me Volare Ibis, a combed cotton white/grey beauty inspired by the feathers on the Ibis it is named for. The grey and […]

Review: Oscha Libero Waikiki – A Fun New Blend by a Classic Brand

The Oscha Slings Libero Waikiki arrived here back in June. These days I wrap my four year old so rarely, it took me way longer to get around to writing this review than I anticipated. Oscha was one of my favorite wrap companies in the early days of wrapping. I have owned many of their […]

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. Toddlerwearing is not something that people are used to seeing in much of the […]

Review: Olives & Applesauce – A Carrier To Grow With

Though many of you reading this may be new to Olives & Applesauce Soft Structured Carriers – these carriers are actually old-timers in this category. They have been collected and coveted as early as 2008… years before my daughter was even born. In June of 2013 Olives & Applesauce came under new ownership, and lots […]

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: Kush Textiles – An Artisan Handwoven Wrap With A Purpose

There is nobody who loves a nice budget Handwoven, like I love a nice budget Handwoven. I have largely avoided the custom Handwoven craze, the stockings, the resale value, all of that noise. I certainly can appreciate a beautiful Handwoven when it passes through here, but my heart definitely goes out to those Handwoven wraps […]
