No one ever seems to answer a question here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I so badly need a wrap....I"ve never used one but now I'm looking at these from kangaroo korner (because I already need a new fleece pouch since I lost so much weight and I would rather order from one place)<br><br><a href="https://www.kangarookorner.com/c-31-bali-baby-stretch.aspx" target="_blank">https://www.kangarookorner.com/c-31-...y-stretch.aspx</a><br><br>
anyone have one?<br><br>
What is your favorite wrap? I need something super soft. And how the heck do you use them? I guess I could find a link to that.<br><br>
But I need something that DD can sleep in while out too. She's 9 months. With a wrap is it hard to switch from hip to back? I'm so quick with a sling/pouch or Mei Tei, but I just can't do Mei Teis anymore. No matter what they just hurt my shoulders.

I am going to buy myself a wrap for this new baby. Was going to get a Maya but then a friend of mine showed me this Didymos she had and I fell in love.<br><br>
My poor friend didnt know what she had and was thinking of sewing it up into a pouch <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yikes">: I told her she had a gem there and got her instructions for using it.

I have a few wraps but I don't use them much. They take a lot of time to tie, they are fine for in the house but on the go I prefer an ergo/beco for back carries (my daughter took many many naps in hers!)<br><br>
have you tried a lexie twist with your mei tai? it looks like this:<br><br><a href="http://koalamommas.com/gallery2/d/334-2/meifunkytie.jpg" target="_blank">http://koalamommas.com/gallery2/d/334-2/meifunkytie.jpg</a><br><br>
it really helps distribute the weight of heavier babies.<br><br>
If you do go with a wrap I'd recommend a woven over a stretchy wrap - they are much more supportive.<br><br>
Is there a NINO group near you where you could perhaps see some in person?

I'm still learning about wraps myself, so not much help here....<br><br>
This site has video instructions: <a href="http://www.mamatoto.org" target="_blank">www.mamatoto.org</a><br><br>
And, <a href="http://www.mom-and-me-creations.com/PuttingWrapOn.html#anchor_58" target="_blank">another site with instructions</a>

I still use my maya wrap for dd.<br><br>
My ds did not care for it when he got older, but as a small baby he was quite cozy.<br><br>
Dd loves to be attached to mama so it works for her. There is a long instructional video that comes with it that was helpful. Once you have it threaded correctly (took me quite a while to get it right!) you are good to go. The fabric comes in beautiful colors and is not rough, but I would not call it terribly soft. It is natural fibers and very durable.<br><br>
I have not had any experience with the more recent brands I have seen other mamas talk about. And I can't afford to buy more than one to try out. So this one works for us just fine.

Yes, I am buying a Didymos....$145 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dropjaw"><br><br>
I'm sure it's worth it, I just can't figure out which color scheme I want. I love the color grown cotton, but the really bright ones are gorgeous!!<br><br>
Thanks everyone

It was called a maya wrap ..... It does have rings, so now I guess I am confused about the difference. I know there are a million choices and more differing opinions about what is best.<br><br>
No big deal...just thought I would put my personal experience in.<br><br>
By the sounds of what you all are talking about, I would have to really know what I wanted to spend that kind of money. GL.

Wow. I did check out the other sites. Holy cow. I would really have a tough time deciding. Some very beautiful (and complicated) wraps.<br><br>
I understand the difference. Sorry for being ignorant.....ignorant no more.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I have no clue which is the softest.<br><br>
Somewhere not sure where at the moment I had seen where each fabric Didymos has said whether is was soft and how it tied.<br><br>
It may have been on attached to baby <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"> or maybe it was the didymos site <a href="http://www.didymos.de/english/index_e.htm" target="_blank">http://www.didymos.de/english/index_e.htm</a>

You can also check out <a href="http://wickelkinder.de/tragetuecher_von_storchenwiege.htm" target="_blank">wickelkinder.de/tragetuecher_von_storchenwiege.htm</a><br><br>
to look at the differnent Storchenwiege styles and colors. Storch is very similar to Didymos, but not as expensive because the fabric is not organic. It is tested and is deemed free of harmful substances however.<br><br>
I imagine there are American sites where you can find Storch as well.
