I came across this wrap when trying to find a lightweight alternative for babywearing in what will soon be a very hot environment. Where I live it can be 100 degrees on a regular basis, and humid on top of that.

This wrap seems to fit the bill, but it's very expensive IMO. Anyone heard of it, or tried one on?

Oh! Oh! I just discovered them, too. They have a luscious cobalt blue, mmmm. This is what somebody told me about them:

"The Easycares are silkier and lighter weight than either [Storch or Didy] but just as soft and supportive. The blue one is my favorite wrap for comfort because of that. Attached to Baby sells them."

Bear in mind, though, that everyone has a different opinion about every brand (kinda frustrating). Some people have said that Storchs feel like canvas while other people say they feel soft and comfy like a favorite sweatshirt. And so on.... I guess the only way to know which brand you like best is to buy them all. I know - discouraging for those of us who aren't made of money!

I've been spending a lot of time at thebabywearer.com lately because I'm so into wrapping these days. The mamas there are a great resource for info about most kinds of wraps. I think there are some Easycares on the FSOT board, which would be a much better deal than buying new, and more broken in, too.

I've even gotten dh to try my storch and he LOVES the front cross carry.


Be forewarned, TBW might cause you to covet many wraps and become addicted!

Personally I love my gypsy mama water wrap for warm weather wearing. It is made of a great fabric that is cool, UV protective, and can get wet and dry within minuets. Plus it is silky soft instead of scratchy like solarveil.

Plus there are the bali wraps which are so pretty and also light weight.

I just got mine, and I really like the feel of it, I think even better than my storch. I haven't had a chance to wear it in heat yet, though!
