Pros: Very comfortable, attractive
Cons: Hot in summer, silk fades, learning curve to wrap properly
I highly recommend this wrap. It is very comfortable and holds baby securely. There is a bit of a learning curve at first, to figure out the proper way to wrap it. However, once you have it down, it is quite easy. I liked that I could use it with my newborn. She was a fussy baby, but very much liked being held close in this wrap. I have received many compliments on the unique look of the design, as it is a very pretty blue silk. I have noticed that the silk has faded over time, which I believe is due to the fact that is repeatedly stretched over baby when worn. It is still nice looking, but does not have the same vibrant blue it had when I first purchased it.
This wrap is meant for children up to 35 pounds, but I think I will be switching to a different type of carrier soon. My daughter is 7 1/2 months and 20 lbs and is quite active. At this point she has a tendency to work her way out of the wrap and I don't feel as secure as I did when she was small. I will be sorry to retire this wrap though, it has served us well!
A note on the price--I bought this at a sidewalk sale at a local natural baby store, but I believe the normal retail price is 69.99.
