They run REALLLLY long, since they have very dramatic tapering at the ends. At least my Whales does. I can almost squeak a FWCC with a 2.7mm ( I ridiculously small BTW) when I normally need a 3.7m.

What size/length do you normally use? What carries would you like to do? And whats your height/build?

BWCC is my favorite, I use a size 6 indio for that and it leaves maybe 20 cm tail. Size 7 is WAY too long.

I'm a size 12 and 5'9 if that helps

I bet you could get away with a 4m...but to be safe (so that you don't come looking for me afterwards ) the 4.5m. I find it sooooooooooo crazy long on me, the 4.5m. I like alotta tail myself, but its a bit much with a 4.5, esp. when my 2.7m I could squeek a FWCC.

Yeah, kinda going through TBW withdrawl myself... thought the upgrade would be over by now, it's almost 7pm EST

Colleen2, where'd you get the Vanatai? What colourway do you recommend? I recall SlingDad mentioning he had one.

Will have first unofficial BW demo to a local playgroup next Tuesday. Our proposed BW group name: Mamasupial Montreal. Wish me luck!

A size 6 Didy is roughly 4.6m on average, so with the extra long tial, to be safe, a 4.5m Vat. But I bet it would be long!!

And Amy (Felix Mom) I got my vat off FSOT from a Canadian Mum. Do you know about the yahoo group for Canadian Sling Swapping? Go to the CMC website, www.carrymeclose.ca, for a link on the Carrier Sources webpage.

And TieDyed HELLLOOOOO mama!!

Still itchy to get into TBW. One of my major lusts was found and I was waiting to hear back whether it was mine or not And I am missing my chatty mamas! But alas thankfully I've got a bunch on my Yahoo!

TBW was only supposed to be down for 2 hours, but its WELLLL over that now! looks like we'll be camping out here for awhile!

You can get vitanai's from Melissa at Lemonbalmessentials.com who BTW totally rocks. Or FSOT, but they seem to go quick.

Hm...Amy for a colorway hm....for you I see warm rich colors like your personality. So Koira, the deep red or Kipawa the deep blue stripes.

Check out Lemon Balm Essentials, they have all the pics as Melisaa is the NA distributor of Vats., www.lemonbalmessentials.com

Thought I'd find some of you mamas here too. But I won't stay too long. Looks like a good night to get some sewing done. I've got 2 MTs in the works.

Well, I held my first NINO meeting today -- small, but it's a start! So that was my BW fix. Of course, 2 year old dd did NOT want to be used as a model for BWCC with CB -- hard to believe a year ago she would hold still to be wrapped and now she screams like I'm pulling her toenails out! : She wanted to be down and playing with the other kids!

Oh, and I got some wholesale orders from three different companies -- never thought I'd have this many baby carriers showing up on my doorstep at once! It was fluffy mail on steroids!

Awesome day - NINO mtg AND fluffy mail!

Can't wait to hear more details about your mtg. My kids never want to be worn at NINO, but they fight over my back at home. Go figure. We have a couple demo dolls - one is a gorgeous Reborn, the other is one of my old baby dolls that I just filled w/ rice. Both work better than screaming toddlers. Big teddy bears also do the trick in a pinch.

I wish I had a crafty bone in my body; I'd love to make a babywearing doll! I'm going to need something better than dd to do demos. How big are your bw dolls?

I decided at my last NINO that I just can't bring DD anymore. I can't help someone with a newborn learn to wrap while chasing DD out the door Seems like all the places we meet have those pull-handles instead of doorknobs, so as soon as my eyes aren't on her, she's GONE! It'll be nice to have a tiny newborn to wear again

Oh and I am soooooo not crafty- And I made some demo dolls! I got some 21" dolls at Toys R Us. They are held together by zip ties- so you just cut those off. I use BBs for weights. I put the BBs inside a knee-high pantyhose and just put some in the butt and a little in the head. Then use long skinny zip ties, and just put it back together! Nowhere near as fancy as a Reborn, but it does the job!

In the business board there was have simple directions for creating a reborn doll for demoing. They really are very easy!

I have one PM allegedly waiting for me and I'm dying to see who its from
Kristine, ironically its hopefully regarding a BSO I've been stalking out!!!!!!!! I'm itchy to have one of my own and finally found one and BOOM down goes TBW

I was reading making weighted dolls. I wonder if I could somehow work at getting a member of our group to make one.....

Anyone wanna look at our group website in their BWing boredom? www.carrymeclose.ca, FWIW: its total no profit local org. so I think its well within posting rules to share here?

I keep checking to see if its up yet. I'm so itchy for my Onbu!!!!!!!!

Well ladies, maybe this will be the 1st night in forver I actually make it into bed before 1am!!!
