Product name:Ella Roo Wrap

Brief description of product:Hand-woven, Guatamalen wrap.

Store/Site of purchase:Cotton Cradles

Price: $72

How long have you used this product? 2 weeks

Fit/Sizing: Fabulous. I originally wanted a small but they were out of that size in the fabric I wanted so it was suggested that I try a medium and it is perfect (I have a long torso).

Performance: So wonderful! Made for baby-wearing, it's no wonder babies have been carried this way for ages.

Workmomship:The fabric is so vibrant and beautiful, you could wear it as clothing. I got the most "tame" of the patterns and it is still brilliant and so lovely.

Customer Service/Communication: Great! Very prompt friendly & helpful responses to my sizing issues.

Would you purchase this product again? And again and again!

I give it (How many thumbs up out of five?):

Product name: Ellaroo wrap

Brief description of product: brightly colored woven baby wrap

Store/Site of purchase: Chicken Noodle Soup

Price: $75

How long have you used this product? 3 weeks

Fit/Sizing: Since sharing with husband, we were told to get a large, it is long, I wish we had got a medium, but it still works fine.

Performance: Love it! We have a big baby and love to babywear, so this is exactly what we needed.

Workmomship: SO BEAUTIFUL!

Customer Service/Communication: Fine, though it took a long time to get.

Would you purchase this product again? Yes!

Have you made a complaint to the WAHM about the product? If yes, please provide details of any resolution or lack thereof No

Additional Comments: There is some learning to it, practicing and such, but already have two carries down and working on back carry. Depending on carry can be hard to breastfeed and once the baby is in the carry, like front or back, have to completely take baby out to breastfeed and then re-tie. Good for long walks and such, but if just running into store from car, then sling is used.

Product name: EllaRoo Wrap

Brief description of product:
Hand-woven, Guatamalen wrap.

Store/Site of purchase:
Direct, I'm a distributor

Price: $70-80

How long have you used this product? 6 months

Fit/Sizing: I use a small (I'm a pretty small girl!) but I think I'd get more use out of a medium. I do like that there is no excess fabric with the size that is suggested for my weight/height.

Performance:
Easy to manipulate, lightweight and very comfy!! I had a stretchy wrap before getting this one, and I just love how much more versatile this one is. My daughter is 11 months now and back carries are a breeze (which she just loves!).

Workmomship: I have a Maija and it is simply stunning! Pictures online just don't do these carriers justice. They are *so* much prettier in real life.

Customer Service/Communication: EllaRoo's really cares about their cusotmers and distributors and they have always been quick to respond to emails and any questions or concerns, whether they were coming from me or from a customer.

Would you purchase this product again? Absolutely!!

I give it (How many thumbs up out of five?):

Mama to DD#1 (03/05) and DD#2 (05/08). Expecting baby #3.

Product name: EllaRoo Wrap

Brief description of product: woven wrap

Store/Site of purchase: http://www.naturallycozybabywear.com

Price: bought on sale; usually retails for about $78.99

How long have you used this product? about a month

Fit/Sizing: Comes in small (4.2 m), medium (4.6 m), and large (5.0 m). I bought a large, and it fits well.

Performance: Works well for carrying my 25+lb baby. I don't have to readjust all the time like I do with any wrap that has a bit of stretch. His weight is distributed well across my shoulders and back.

Workmomship: Beautiful (I bought the Claudia, and it's gorgeous!). I'm rough with wraps, and tore mine a bit at the end. It still works as it should, though. The fringe on the ends makes it look especially pretty and stylish.

Customer Service/Communication: My husband bought me this wrap at the in-home shop of http://www.naturallycozybabywear.com while talking to me on the phone about what I wanted. The seller helped him figure out the best size to get for me, and has been available in case I have need of assistance.

Would you purchase this product again? Yes. Of all the wraps I have, this is the one I use the most.

Have you made a complaint to the WAHM about the product? If yes, please provide details of any resolution or lack thereof: No

Additional Comments: Beautiful wrap, works well!
