Review: Risaroo Wovens Lumen Maul

Risaroo Wovens Lumen Maul 45% tencel, 55% cotton – 282 gsm prewash $$ Machine woven Support: Average Best for: All babies Carries: Single pass carries for smaller babies, multi pass carries for larger babies I was able to test Lumen Maul, from Risaroo Wovens. It’s the second release from the Dark Side collection. I’m a huge fan of Star Wars, so I had to try this wrap out. It is 45% tencel, which makes it a nice and airy wrap. I think the tencel makes it even cooler than linen. Maul is pretty cushy. I think it has to do with the…

Review: Fiolia Handwovens The Wild Side

Fiolia Handwovens The Wild Side 35% aloe Vera lyocelle, 15% mercerized Egyptian cotton, 50% pupa silk – 400+ GSM $$$$ Handwoven Support: Average Best for: Smaller babies Carries: Single pass carries for smaller babies, multi pass carries for larger babies   I was sent The Wild Side to test and I have to say it is one of my favorite nattys (natural) that I’ve ever been able to use. Fiolia Handwovens is one of the handwoven companies that I’ve been following for a long time. I’m a huge fan of the fibers that are used. I reviewed one of their…

Why I Babywear

I love to babywear. It’s all over my blog, my Instagram account, and my Facebook account. I talk about it constantly to everyone that I can. I post photos of all the carriers that come my way. I go to meetings and just enjoy it all.  I started babywearing 5 years ago when Birdie was born. I came across a photo of my grandmother wearing my mother and another one of my mother wearing me in a traditional mei tai. I asked my grandmother how to make one and she explained the dimensions to me. My mother in law, who…

Review: Kokoro Koneko Sage

Kokoro Koneko Sage 50% organic cotton, 50% sea island cotton – 300 g/m2 aka gsm $$$ Machine Woven Support: Average Best for: Smaller babies Carries: Single pass carries for smaller babies, multi pass carries for larger babies Sage was my second Kokoro wrap that I own. It was the first wrap that I’ve owned that had sea island cotton, and oh, what a difference it makes! I fell in love with Kokoro Textiles when I saw some of their tri-blend wraps, and I just fell down the rabbit hole. This wrap is about average width with tapers. It’s just one of the…

Where Have I Been?

I totally disappeared and I’m sorry for that. My laptop died, a sad sad death. Well, the hard drive did. I haven’t been able to get it up and working, so I’m trying to post from an ancient desktop, that I fixed up. We’ve had a pretty busy summer. The last summer before Birdie started school. She is in kindergarten now! It’s been quite a change. Tot doesn’t quite know what to do without his sister. He’s always asking for her and looking for her. We are two weeks in now, and she’s enjoying it. We drove the coast and…

  • Bring me back to Christmas Day dinner 🍴 I wish I could have some lobster tails 🦞 almost every day. This was such an awesome meal. ⁣

What do you eat when you celebrate for different holidays?  We do ham on Easter, turkey on Thanksgiving, and callaloo for New Years. I can’t wait for Chinese New Year - that’s my favorite meal 🧧 ⁣

  • The rain is gone! It’s so sunny ☀️ And it’s supposed to be in the high 60s for about a week - so excited 🎉⁣

The older kids got electric scooters for Christmas🎄 but haven’t been able to take them out because of the rain. Now we are going out multiple times a day. It’s good exercise. No major injuries, yet. ⁣
