Review: Luluna Slings Diamo Helios

Luluna Slings Diamo Helios

  • 100% combed cotton – 260 g/m2
  • $$
  • Machine woven
  • Support: Average
  • Best for: All babies
  • Carries: Single pass carries for smaller babies, multi pass carries for larger babies

We were able to test Luluna Sling’s Diamo Helios and I had forgotten it was coming. What a surprise it was when I grabbed the mail! Love fluff mail! The color is gorgeous – it’s like a ecru and tan/beige color. A pretty good neutral. I love diamond shapes, so I thought that the pattern is amazing! They’re like diamond hearts all over the wrap. Geometric shapes are love.

As always, I threw Tot up in my favorite carries: a double hammock, a reinforced ruck and shepherds. The photos are of us in a double hammock. The shoulder passes were not diggy at all – pretty cushy. There is a bit of stretch in this wrap, but it retains its shape pretty well. This wrap takes no time to break in – I felt like in the week it was here, it got softer pretty fast. Combed cotton, which is what Helio Diamos is, breaks in pretty easily.

I had Tot up for a bit and the wrap did seem to relax a tiny bit. I could’ve readjusted my passes from what I could see, but it didn’t feel necessary. Once this wrap is fully broken in, I can see it wrapping like an ace bandage. It’s on its way there! It was pretty smooth on my chest passes and the moldability was spot on – that diagonal stretch at work!

The cotton of Diamos makes it pretty easy care for the wash, but I wouldn’t quite consider the wrap to be a workhorse. The ecru makes it possible to pick up stains. The weave and pattern do not make this wrap pull prone. But as always, check with the company before washing! It’s a pretty airy wrap – we wore it on some hot 90+ days.and I wasn’t worried about being too warm.

This wrap glides – the passes move without issue. You don’t have to do much work to get them into place. It’s quite snuggly as well, and will probably get more snuggly as time goes by and it gets more broken in. I also feel like it will get more floppy in time, with more use.

We enjoyed having this wrap visit us for a bit. I really really like the pattern and the color. I could see it snuggling a little baby – I can imagine it getting *that* soft. I would recommend multi-pass carries for heavier babes, but it worked with single pass carries.

  • 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. ⁣
