Marisso Slings Azalea Cherry Blossom

  • $$$
  • Machine woven
  • Support: Average
  • Best for: Smaller babies
  • Carries: Great with all!

I was chosen to host a Marisso Slings woven wrap and I was excited. I’ve seen them around in photos and through reviews, but I’ve never had the opportunity to try one out. I was sent Azalea in cherry blossom and it was pretty amazing! I received it right after having Dumpling and it was the perfect wrap to get some newborn cuddles. It’s a gorgeous wrap that I really enjoyed having here.

This wrap is CUSHY. Like on the shoulders. It feels great on the shoulders. I had Dumpling up in a FWCC and Tot up in a double hammock and this wrap did not disappoint. It did not dig at all. I walked around downtown with Dumpling in a FWCC for a long time and I had Tot up for about an hour (he doesn’t stay up long anymore) and my shoulders did not hurt. It was nice. A had found a collectible store, so we were out a little longer than we had planned. It was fun though, totally worth it. Azalea does have a bit of bounce to it. There is some stretch that helps the wrap bounce right back into place. It stretches out a tiny bit with use, but not to the point of retightening or having to redo my wrapping at all.

Azalea does have a bit of diagonal stretch, which makes awesome chest passes. I love that ace bandage feeling when I do chest passes. The sling passes over Tot’s back were pretty smooth as well. It hugs very well. This wrap is pretty sturdy, but with the design and how soft it is – it makes me feel like it’s delicate. With the 100% cotton though, it should be pretty easy to wash and care for. But as always, I always make sure to follow the company’s directions – you can never be too sure.

The pink side is softer than the natural side, but not to the point of anything serious. I found the kids rubbing their faces on the pink side if that testifies to anything. Tot kept saying it was soft, ha. It’s not too thick, but it was comfortable, like a well worn blanket. Soft and snuggly. It was nice and a little airy, not too warm. There is slight texture of the design, but not too much to make the wrap grippy. The natural side does have more texture than the pink side. It was extremely easy to tie a knot in Azalea, with a tiny bit of slippage. This wrap was pretty floppy and I think it’s on the newer side. I love it when a wrap doesn’t take too much to break in when I’m using it with Dumpling. With Tot, I love helping the break in process.

I’m sad Azalea had to move on, but I love that it gets to snuggle other babies. It was a great wrap, especially with Dumpling. It was soft, comfortable. Wrapped easily. I didn’t have to struggle to get passes where I needed them to go. I love the color and the design. I can’t wait to check out what other wraps that Marisso has to offer!

  • 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. ⁣
The social anxiety is real and @socialcbd has really helped during this past holiday week and the upcoming festivities. Thank you #SocialCBD for helping this mama out during the holidays. ⁣

  • 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. ⁣
