I've never owned a wrap, but I made a MeiTai which I <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat"> - the only problem is that I want to wear my ds (16 lb @ 7 months old) on my back and it seems like my friends with wraps have a better time of it. Didymos has been recommended to me but I've been window shopping and these are the 3 I'm choosing from.<br><br>
Can someone please guide me a bit? If this question has been visited before, I'm sorry! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"><br><br>
I'm going to be using it outdoors this summer and one thing I noticed about the EllaRoo is that the info says it's more lightweight than the Euro wraps. Is this true/does it make a difference?<br><br>
I'm sort of leaning to the Storch, wow I love the Inka fabric. mmmm<br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">help?</span>

IME, after a certain temperature you will feel hot no matter what, so buying a wrap based solely on the heat may not always be a good idea. You also want something that will keep you comfortable after wearing your baby for a long time. Besides, you can also do a "strap wrap carry" or a simple cross carry -- those allow there to be the least amount of layers against you and your baby.<br><br>
I think a Waves Didymos or Indio Didymos are the coolest Euro woven you can find because they are so thin and airy - and hey are as comfy as any other Didy or Storch! I would stay away from the Rhombus pattern Didymos because they tend to have a flannely feel to them and therefore be a bit too much in the summer...<br><br>
I personally found Storches's weave to be too dense and therefore hotter, so they would not be my choice for a summer wrap.<br><br>

I love the didymos and storch. I had an Ellaroo but it was too thin for my comfort. My first German wrap was the Storch. It is heavier and wider that a stripe didymos but it is smoother feeling and IMO "glides" when I do the back carries. I find the didymos much more grippy.

I have a purple waves too. I just love it!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> It's grippy and airy at the same time and the colors are so pretty.

I love my didy, but wanted to add that for a new wrapper, a wrap with a bit of stretch, like a hempcotton wrap, can be very helpful. I like having one of each now.
