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!

  • This wrap is so beautiful. ⁣
I received Dreamer with a cotton/hemp weft yesterday. This weft is hand dyed by Echo over at @chicibeanz for the collaboration with @appleblossomwovens. ⁣
The pooling of the hand dyed yarn really makes it looked striped almost. It almost looks like a totally different wrap compared to the black linen weft I’ve been using. ⁣

  • I got surprised with a trip to @Disneyland for Valentine’s Day. It’s so crowded because of the long weekend. There’s even lines for the bathrooms - every bathroom. We haven’t gone on many rides, but we’ve checked out more shows than before and looked around for hidden mickeys. The weather has been perfect too. ⁣
I hope you’re on some adventures this long weekend. What are you up to?⁣

  • We rarely get to drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. I hate tolls and I also hate driving over bridges, but this was too much fun to not. ⁣
The kids fell asleep right before we even made it, but I was going to go for it. I’m glad we made a trip out of it, even though the car ended up breaking down. Nobody stopped to help. The few people I did get to ask refused to help 🤷🏽‍♀️⁣
At least we got to check it out. 🌉
  • Dreamer is a dream. This wrap is gorgeous. I loved being able to test it all weekend in the city. ⁣

  • I’ve been looking for any copies of my maternity photos with Dumpling since I suck and I can’t find my copies. @bijoubabywearing was able to find some of me wrapping Tot in Baskerville Boardwalk and I couldn’t be happier. I love the bubbles in this one. @paintingskies did such a great job with this shoot. My family had so much fun with her. ⁣

  • When your friend @koalacuddlesbabywearing  needs shots for upcoming educational material for @happybaby and you drop what you’re doing at @disneyland to check out their onbuhimos 😂💕⁣
This Marigold onbuhimo was easy to get in the shoulder to shoulder height and pretty comfortable. I might need to snag one. ⁣
