Ergo Baby Embrace Review

The Embrace is the newest carrier from Ergo Baby.  Unlike their other carriers that work best from 2 or 3 months ish right through to 2.5 years… this carrier is designed to really fit that newborn and younger baby stage.  It works really well right from birth and will last you till around 1 yearContinue reading “Ergo Baby Embrace Review”

Mamaruga Zen Sling Review

Suptumitously soft and super adjustable – the Mamaruga Zen Sling is a real gem of a baby carrier.  It combines the feel of a wrap with the intuitive practicality of a buckle carrier.  Whilst also being one of the very few carriers that genuinely works beautifully well for tiny babies and then seamless grows with yourContinue reading “Mamaruga Zen Sling Review”

Vatanai Opportunity Heartbeat Review

Only the second Vatanai wrap I have ever tried, what struck me most about Opportunity Heartbeat is that it is completely and utterly different to Gaia Labrinth. Heartbeat is a proper heavy weight wool blend, – 47% Egyptian Cotton, 46% Merino Superwash Wool and 7% tencel – with what Vatanai call a “tri-weave”.  Which means ratherContinue reading “Vatanai Opportunity Heartbeat Review”

Vatanai Gaia Labrinth Review

This wrap is unlike anything I’ve ever tried before! It’s absolutely stunningly beautiful.  I’ve had the good fortune to try a good number of stunning wraps before, but where this one is different is the slubs. Slubs arise when the threads used to make the wrap is of uneven thickness … leading to some bigContinue reading “Vatanai Gaia Labrinth Review”

Toddler Carriers Compared

There are a number of Toddler carriers on the market, and confusingly they vary HUGELY between brands!  In particular, they vary most in terms of size!  Both in terms of how old your baby needs to be before they are big enough and in terms of how long they will last for. The library hasContinue reading “Toddler Carriers Compared”

Boba X review

Adjustability and longevity – if I had to describe this carrier in just two words they would be it, because this carrier has both in spades.  Many carriers on the market advertise birth till 4, but few actually really cover that whole range.  The Boba X is probably one of the very few that reallyContinue reading “Boba X review”

Girasol Earthy Rainbow Review

Whenever someone is asking me about buying their first woven wrap I always say first and foremost buy something you love.  Yes things like weight and length do make difference, but you also have to love it.  If it’s a design and colour that you love then you’ll wear it loads, you’ll learn new carriesContinue reading “Girasol Earthy Rainbow Review”
