Are these wraps toddler worthy? Supportive, nice to wrap with? x
They are gorgeous! The older and more pre loved the better they wrap, I would always buy a used one, and yes they wrap a toddler beautifully, just make sure you buy one big enough if you are buying for a baby first and planning to carry into toddlerhood.
Wonderful range of colours and they wash really well.
They are my favourite. I prefer them to Didymos by some way. Second the suggestion to get a pre-loved if you can! xxx
I was thinking of getting a size 5, as I have a size 4 Natibaby (with silk) and a size 6 Lenny Lamb (with bamboo) already, and I can do a double hammock with a 5. Wanted something a bit snugglier for the cold weather, but 100% cotton, and supportive. Used to have a cotton Didymos but I wasn’t too keen on it and selling my storch now as I fancy something new and snugglier!
Do you think a Girasol Romantique is too feminine-looking to carry a little boy in?!
I thought the greys might off-set this a little…
but like all the pics of it on google images seem to be wrapping little girls!
LOVE some of the other rainbows but many of the colours are a little too strong for me to pull off I think, and one of my wraps is already pastel rainbow colours.
I have heard they are great for toddlers, and so have a golden rainbow 7 on pre order. I can not wait, only a few weeks to go
I had to sell one of my madame goo goo’d but I was missing wrapping so much, I hope it turns out to be as lovely as people say.

I don’t have a problem carrying a girl in a very blue wrap, or a boy in my pink ring sling. As far as I’m concerned, the slings are like *my* outer clothing. I wouldn’t feel strange about wearing a boy inside a pink coat (not that I have ever owned a pink coat)!
Sarah, that’s how I feel too, but when I was wearing my light blue summer-weight mei-tai (how embarrassing that I have a summer and winter weight one!), lots of people assumed Jude was a boy. Doesn’t bother me, but they would get quite offended when Grace corrected them (which she does all the Time!), as though I had done it to deliberately mislead them!

I like Girasols. I have a shortie (2.6m) that I regularly use for Rucks, Rebozo’s etc. Found it comfy to use with DS as a toddler and now DD2
