Wild Slings Jardin Secret • 50% organic Pima cotton and 50% organic Egyptian cotton • $$ • Machine woven • Support: Average • Best for: Any Age • Carries: Great with all I have no words. This wrap is SO soft. Like blanket soft. Like I didn’t want to send it off soft. It completely surprised me. This completely gorgeous wrap is Wild Slings Jardin Secret. It has flowers, birds and even a little snail on it. The snail is my favorite. This wrap is soft and pretty thick. It was wondrous on my shoulders. I didn’t have to worry…

Review: Lolly Wovens Heron Anturium

Lolly Wovens Heron Anturium • 80% Cotton, 20% microtencel • $ • Machine woven • Support: Average • Best for: Any Age • Carries: Great with all I was chosen to host one of Lolly Wovens American testers and I was eager to check it out. I’ve only seen the company on Facebook – they have giveaways, and I was curious to check them out. The company is located in Europe and their wraps tend to be on the less expensive side, which I can definitely appreciate. You can get up to a size 7 for under $100! Heron Anturium…

Review: Emmeline Textiles Juno Squares V2

Emmeline Textiles Juno Squares V2 • 100% cotton • $$ • Machine woven • Support: Average • Best for: Any Age • Carries: Great with all! I received Emmeline Textiles’ Juno Squares Version 2 in the traveler program and I was excited to try it out. Their program has a lot of options for caregivers to check out all kinds of wraps. I haven’t played with Juno Squares yet, so I wanted to play around a bit. Juno Squares V2 is a thin wrap. Very thin – but not in a bad way. I wouldn’t consider the shoulders to be…

Celebrating Chinese New Year

The Lunar New Year is one of my favorite holidays. I love the family getting together and huge meals. I also look forward to the Chinese New Year Parade that happens every year in the city. Even Birdie’s school does a little something for it. Last year was a huge assembly. This year, we did a parade. It was a lot of fun. Cold and wet – but we made it work. I’ve been wearing Poppet Slings’ Soho ring sling during the festivities because it’s he perfect shade of red. I make sure the kids are always wearing red –…

10 Must Haves for an Infant

I did a list for your hospital bag, newborn and new mom, so I figured I needed to a list for an infant. There are so many things that an infant needs, that a newborn doesn’t necessarily need. These are my top ten that I’ve been using the most. Dock-a-Tot – Are we surprised this is still on my list? Dumpling loves ours. We even take it on road trips. We put it into the little bag that it came with and we travel with it.   ErgoBaby – A soft structured baby carrier. I use a baby carrier since…

  • 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. ⁣
