If I could keep a wrap forever, I think Emmeline Textiles’ Natty Dots is on the top of that list. This wrap has been visiting for a little while and I’m not ready for it to move on. This wrap is epitomizes cushy marshmallow. It’s soft and fluffy. Some diagonal stretch, but not too much. Passes that glide, but the dots give just enough texture than the passes stay put.

As always, Tot went up in a double hammock. It’s my favorite carry. I’ve been working on getting that middle marker actually in the middle. We wore it around the store, around the block — just basically around everywhere. Natty Dots is CUSHY. Cush galore. No digging in my shoulders at ALL. We also tried in a ruck, a reinforced ruck, Shephards, and I attempted Giselle’s with a waistbelt. Still cushy. I can’t get over the softness. There is some stretch in Dots — it’s bouncy, but it does retain its shape pretty well. There’s a bit of relaxing – it stretches out a bit while in use, but not to the point of readjusting or having to tighten constantly while wearing.

Natty Dots is ace bandage like. It totally conforms to whatever carry you chose to do. It molds around you and your wearee perfectly. I pretty much felt like I was wrapping us in an ace bandage. A nice, soft, cushy ace bandage.

Natty Dots is 100% cotton. Easy care – but like always, I recommend checking out the company’s washing directions before washing. With how often we wore it, it never got dirty… There were no spots on the tails or anything at all. We take care of our travelers when we host – but I always get worried when a natty (natural colored/no dyes) wrap comes through here. I wouldn’t consider Dots to be delicate and it’s not pull prone at all. The weaves makes it so it’s almost impossible. Dots is also thin, so pretty breathable.

Dots’ passes glide nicely, but I wouldn’t consider it too slippery. They move easily while wrapping. Depending on the carry, I could see having to readjust, but we never had the problem here. The dots create a bit of texture – not too grippy at all. But it helped my passes stay put. The texture of Dots is soft and pretty smooth except for the tiny dots that create the pattern. There’s 3D little dots all throughout the wrap. They’re also pretty small and sometimes hard to catch up on photos. Dots is also pretty floppy. Thin enough to flop around my hand, it creates a nice flow to the wrap.

So I loved this wrap. I’m pretty sad that it needs to move on. It was a soft blanket during nap time and a soft wrap when it was time to go up. I’m falling hard for natty wraps now and I wouldn’t mind having this one in our wrap collection. This one was a tester that I wouldn’t mind seeing show up on the website. This one is a winner EmTex!

  • We pulled out our @appleblossomwovens Black Agate Tencel wrap for this chilly weather. It’s been cold and rainy, so the extra coziness of Tencel has been great. ⁣
Black Agate has been one of our favorite monochrome wraps ever. 🖤 It truly speaks to me. I can’t wait for Reflection to be released which is another monochrome wrap, with a kaleidoscope weave. Both white and black weft are speaking to me. M

  • Who is always at the ready to take somebody’s head off during the holidays? 🙋🏽‍♀️ Just look at me wrong or finish my favorite dish and it’s over. ⁣

  • Obsessing over @squeezamals this holiday season! The picnic pack was the cutest addition to our Squeezamals collection. Everything came for a perfect picnic lunch. ⁣
Dumpling loves the texture of the squish of the Squeezamals. She is always found with one in her hands. ⁣
If you’re interested in grabbing some for your littles, check out your local @walmart!

  • I volunteered in my daughter’s classroom for Thanksgiving. I helped on the food line so I had to tie Dumpling to my back and make turkey sandwiches. We do teach the kids that we don’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving, and the teachers discussed the truth with the kids. I’m glad I didn’t have to step in like previous years 🤦🏽‍♀️⁣
My tote bag from @shopkindredtogether is my favorite though. I’m able to fit everything in there. A quick link to the shop is in my profile & you can use code APRILOCT to save 💰 ⁣

  • We were so lucky to be able to check out the Flip & Spin for the Win bundle - thanks to @PowerYourFun. The bundle included Laser Launchers (which I can’t pry out of Tot’s hands), the Mini Cyclone Stunt Car, and Turbo Tops Gyro Cars - which you see pictured here. These are our favorite part of the bundle, the kiddos are constantly try to do tricks with them. ⁣
Thank you Kaliber Global Toys for this awesome gift! #sponsored #PowerYourFun #TurboTops @apexdropofficial
  • Yesterday was my birthday! I’m thirty-something (the something is silent 🤪) and it was a good day. A made it back from a 10 day trip just in time to celebrate. The kids were so excited to make mom’s day fun. ⁣⁣
My sister always grabs a red velvet bundt cake for me and I love it. It’s my favorite. My grandmother used to bake me a red velvet cake every year when I was younger and it’s important to me to have it. ⁣
Here’s to another revolution around the sun ☀️
  • I posted about the awesome @pjmasks PJ Masks Seeker about a month ago. I grabbed it at @target and kept it hidden until it was Tot’s birthday. He had already completely forgotten about it & it was a wonderful surprise to open on his day 🎂 He’s been playing with it nonstop and his sisters keep trying to get a turn. ⁣
Thank you to MomSelect for gifting us this toy. It’s the perfect toy for this @pjmasks obsessed family. #ad⁣

  • My middle child. My wild child. He’s officially 5 years old and 1 day. I tried to make sure he had a fun filled day yesterday and now I’m exhausted. This year he decided he didn’t like cake and asked for donuts instead 🍩 ⁣
Happy birthday Tot 💕
  • We saved this Star Wars coding kit for Tot’s birthday and it was a hit! He was totally interested in putting it together and making things work. He’s my little tinker. ⁣
