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.

  • My kids are loving these @tinytukkinss that were gifted to us! They love to play house and tuck them in at night, which coincidentally has made bedtime easier in our home too. ⁣

The different animal families are so much fun and I love the little school, complete with miniature pencils and books. I can’t wait to add more to our set. ⁣
