Just bought our first woven wrap (Girasol) and cannot wait until it gets here. I have NO idea what carries to try, so I wanted some suggestions :)

Congrats on your first woven wrap. I'm bumping this up for attention. Anyone have suggestions to share?

Not sure if your looking for a type or a brand but I tried a ring sling and did not like it, went to a "panda wrap" and I LOVE it. When my dd went into toddler stage, I picked up an organic cotton Boba, LOVEd it also!

This is kind of my question too -- I'm 4 mo preg with #2, and I miss wearing my big girl! But since getting pregnant, I just can't stand anything around my waist/belly -- Just before pregnancy, Ergo was my go-to, but the waistbelt is very uncomfortable to me now. SO -- I have a woven wrap, are there maybe some back carries that would not KILL my back, but would still keep pressure off the growing belly?? HELP! I hate this darn stroller on our bumpy streets!!!

I am not a wrap user yet but I have read that you can do some kangaroo carry, front and back carry! Goodluck!

Living is great but being a MOM is even better
