An unusual stretchy wrap: We Made Me Wuti Wrap Review

Few weeks agowe travelled to France for half term. We have done an epic road trip and decided to lighten our luggage by not taking a pushchair: limited car boot space. So guess what I took to help me carrying baby? My wraps, indeed. This is the reason why babywearing is so practical. Checking the weather before packing everything, I was surprised to see that the expected temperature would be near the twenty degrees in Paris and even above in Avignon. Yes, we were heading the South of France with a break in Paris. All my wraps { MobyWrap and Nona woven wrap} are quite hot, large and heavy even if I absolutely love them. So I was unsure about taking them with me. I was more looking for a lightweight and breathable wrap that I could let in the car to ease our road stops. I did some researchs – you know me now – and fell in love with the Wuti Wrap® from WEMADEME.   I looked around and did not find the information I was looking for. …

Connecta Baby Carrier Review

When I was pregnant, I was unsure about using again my stretchy wrap but I knew that I will practice babywearing. With a toddler and a pre-schooler, it was obvious for me that if I wanted to do few things in my home, I would need to put baby somewhere in order to free my hands. And the best way to do it and to make baby comfortable, content and happy is babywearing. I liked my stretchy wrap with Baba1 five years ago but was not at ease for when I was outside so I wanted to anticipated this issue. I – as always– looked everywhere for advices, read reviews and it seemed that one of the best solution and easiest are Soft Structured {buckle} carriers. Babipur, one of the best ethical and eco Shop around –not to say THE Best -, stocks a large range of Buckle carriers but not only. You can find in their website a generous “Babywearing section“. I like how they bring to us some exclusivities and special offers which makes …

Nona Palmae Antigua Woven Wrap Review

My journey into Babywearing started with a stretchy wrap and I get used to knots and this kind of little things. When previously, for my first baby, I found it tricky to use, I enjoyed it with my third. I really liked the way baby was securely wrapped and the lightweight feeling. I introduced myself to ring slings and I love the woven fabric used: so different to a stretchy wrap in terms of support. I decided to go further and to try a woven wrap. The choice out there is impressive and quite confusing. Between designs, choices of fabrics, patterns, sizes and prices, you get easily lost. But well, I guess we shall always start somewhere, we do not become experts from Day 1! After browsing a lot and reading few reviews, I decided to go for a Nona woven wrap. Why? It is one of the most affordable wrap I found and I fell in love with the earthy patterns and beautiful colours. Now, who is behind Nona Woven wraps? Nona Woven Wraps has …

Neobulle Deauville Collection Dune Gris Ring Sling Review

After my first try into Ring slings with the Didysling, and because I was not entirely satisfied I wanted to explore more and try another one. It was exactly when Neobulle launched their brand new Deauville Collection. It was love at first sight. I was also in love with the collection name that was bringing me back to my childhood. Yes, I know I am an emotional buyer. I grew up in the North-West suburb of Paris and every weekend when the sun was shinning, my parents will bring us to Deauville. Deauville is a seaside town in Normandy. We had lots of lovely memories there and the prints of the new Neobulle collection reminds me exactly the Deauville seaside! Neobulle is a french company specialised in babywearing and baby products.  Their wraps are handwoven and for this Deauville Collection, they got Rugiada Petrelli involved who is a fabulous textile designer. This is what she says about her collaboration with Neobulle: “Deauville is the new collection of patterns that I designed for Néobulle a company that produces baby wraps. All jacquard woven in cotton …

Indio Aurora Didymos Didysling Review

I used only my My Stretchy wrap for the last five years and this time round with Baby3, I am enjoying Babywearing and getting more and more confident. I used to be afraid to bring my wrap for our car trips but it was before. When I struggled with breastfeeding – well, let’s say that it is not easy to juggle between a baby that just wants to feed almost all the time and two other children, a home, etc.- I was looking for a sling in which I could breastfeed easily free hands. The dream! I asked some lovely Babipurians Moms – Babipur has a very friendly group – for some advices. A great one was “Breastfeeding and Babywearing are two different skills and you need first to master both of them before considering doing both together”. This is the best advice I have ever received and I am really grateful for all the support I had when I was truly lost in my breastfeeding journey. I listened this wonderful advice and decided to try a …

Moby Strectchy Wrap Review

My journey into babywearing started with my first baby, 5 years ago. I wanted a traditional structured baby carrier before committing to a pushchair and found A MOBY Stretchy Wrap instead. I was really intrigued as I never saw anyone using this kind of carrier near me. My mum used to babywear my sister but I was a pre-schooler so have just few memories. I remember her with her Moroccan embroidered cotton sheet , how she was folding it and how she was managing to put my sister in her back and doing her chores. It was amazing so this wrap reminded my childhood and my mum. I thought I should try! I bought a black Moby wrap. When I received it I was completely L-O-S-T! I did not expect to receive a very long piece of jersey fabric. I was like….emmm, What and How am I supposed to use this? I was quite pregnant when I bought it, should say 8 months so a bit panicky. I looked at all the videos I could find on YouTube and was …
