We're so poor we have to use a Didymos!! - Page 2

post #21 of 27
A friend of mine actually went out a bougth me a stroller for Christmas a couple years back. She said she felt sorry for me having to carry my baby in a wrap. Ummmm- I love my wrap. It's a huge tye-dyed batik sarong with beautiful bright colors. I tie it over my shoulder and feel beautiful when I use it. We had a regular sling at one time but we ended up using the sarong more.

They sure are beautiful though!
When you buy from Didymos to the US, you discount about 17% of the price for th European tax.

www.didymos.de also have "special edition" and "seconds" sections where you can buy a brand new Didymos for A LOT less. I bought a beautiful WIldrose Indio Didymos for $100 (shipping included) last November. I could have saved much more if I had ordered it with a couple ofther moms: shipping costs the same for up to 4 Didymos.

Another option is to buy one used: Didymos actually ARE MUCH NICER used because they are all pre softened and yummy Great places to buy used Didymos are www.thebabywearer.com or our MDC Tading Post If you dare (and find someone who will ship to the US and accept Paypal), the German Ebay is also a great place

Attached to Baby has the "Didymos of the month" every month for $20 off and free shipping!! This month is the Didymos Jan.

Some of my friends have never paid more than $80 for their Didymos because they find the greatest bargain on used ones!!

ETA: Yes, they are a BIG investment at first, but they are the baby items I used THE MOST and oh sooo comfy. Oh - and they have a fantastic resale value too!!

Our Didy was under $100 new. It was purchased a couple of years ago in Switzerland and was on sale.

I agree about it getting better with age. Ours is soft as butter!

Yes, don't forget resale value in Didys! You can easily get 75% or more by selling them when DC outgrows them. I'm still stalking the boards for that perfect Indio!

Yes. That. Agreed.

Which is why I have a used Ellaroo, a hemp podegi and two gypsymama wraps all for the price of one Didymos.

But hey, whatever floats your boat.

I know this thread is old but I found it while googling.

Is that why people look at me when I am wearing my baby??? I thought they were admiring how easy I was shopping at the grocery store not worrying about a stroller or a carrier on top of the cart. (which looks like they could be knocked off!) Oh well. I love my wraps and slings. Much happier baby.

What part of the states do you live where the people look at you with pity while wearing a wrap? I live in California. I would like that they would be more open to baby wearing. I don't see baby wearing as much as I thought I would.

I just bought a Moby wrap and was wondering what the difference is between the Moby and didymos. Is it just the fabric that is different?

The Didymos is a woven wrap. There is very little stretch, which makes it great for heavier/older babies, especially in back carries.
