Weird Slings Fly-lahlah Honey

  • 100% organic cotton
  • $$
  • Machine woven
  • Best for: all babies
  • Carries: all carries

I was finally able to play with a Weird Slings! I’ve been loving their patterns – and I’ve been wanting to try one out for a while. They have some of the most fun, and weird, patterns. I think it’s a lot of fun.

Fly-lahlah is really soft to the touch. It’s pretty smooth, with not a lot of texture. The yellow/gold is really bright. The pattern is a lot of fun. Birdie and Tot thought the flies were “so cool”. I found them looking and poking at the wrap constantly while it was here.

It was perfect for nap time. Dumpling was out like a light. My shoulders felt great in this double hammock. It wasn’t diggy at all – pretty cushy. More cushy than I anticipated with a 100% cotton wrap. She stayed up for a good hour or so, without any issues on my shoulders or back.
There is limited give. A bit of diagonal stretchiness, which helped with the nice and tight passes over her bum and my chest. The wrap bounces back into shape and I saw no reason to readjust at all. I don’t think I had any issues with the wrap relaxing at all.

Fly-lahlah felt really moldable. It took shape of whatever it was wrapped around. Almost like an Ace bandage. I could get each pass nice and tight. It isn’t pull prone due to the weave. I would say it’s a workhorse, but it just seems too pretty. You can brush the dust right off of it and you don’t have to baby this wrap.

This wrap was great during the slightly chilly and rainy weather we’ve been having. It’s not overly airy, and retained some heat – which was nice.

The lack of texture made the passes nice and glide-y (is that a word?). It was super easy to tie a knot and the knit stayed put. It didn’t slip at all. Fly-lahlah is a soft and snuggly wrap. It was so nice and soft – floppy even. I’m not sure how broken in it was, but it felt like it was almost at the perfect sweet spot.

This wrap was a fun visitor here at the A+O household. I need to check out more of their wraps and fun patterns – like donuts! We really enjoyed it and I was sad to see it move on.

  • 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. ⁣

  • Playing with this @heirloomcarrier has been so much fun. I haven’t played with dupioni before and it was so supportive. A little crunchy but I’ll take it with the ultimate support. ⁣
