If I could keep a wrap forever, I think Emmeline Textiles’ Natty Dots is on the top of that list. This wrap has been visiting for a little while and I’m not ready for it to move on. This wrap is epitomizes cushy marshmallow. It’s soft and fluffy. Some diagonal stretch, but not too much. Passes that glide, but the dots give just enough texture than the passes stay put.


As always, Tot went up in a double hammock. It’s my favorite carry. I’ve been working on getting that middle marker actually in the middle. We wore it around the store, around the block — just basically around everywhere. Natty Dots is CUSHY. Cush galore. No digging in my shoulders at ALL. We also tried in a ruck, a reinforced ruck, Shephards, and I attempted Giselle’s with a waistbelt. Still cushy. I can’t get over the softness. There is some stretch in Dots — it’s bouncy, but it does retain its shape pretty well. There’s a bit of relaxing – it stretches out a bit while in use, but not to the point of readjusting or having to tighten constantly while wearing.

Natty Dots is ace bandage like. It totally conforms to whatever carry you chose to do. It molds around you and your wearee perfectly. I pretty much felt like I was wrapping us in an ace bandage. A nice, soft, cushy ace bandage.


Natty Dots is 100% cotton. Easy care – but like always, I recommend checking out the company’s washing directions before washing. With how often we wore it, it never got dirty… There were no spots on the tails or anything at all. We take care of our travelers when we host – but I always get worried when a natty (natural colored/no dyes) wrap comes through here. I wouldn’t consider Dots to be delicate and it’s not pull prone at all. The weaves makes it so it’s almost impossible. Dots is also thin, so pretty breathable.


Dots’ passes glide nicely, but I wouldn’t consider it too slippery. They move easily while wrapping. Depending on the carry, I could see having to readjust, but we never had the problem here. The dots create a bit of texture – not too grippy at all. But it helped my passes stay put. The texture of Dots is soft and pretty smooth except for the tiny dots that create the pattern. There’s 3D little dots all throughout the wrap. They’re also pretty small and sometimes hard to catch up on photos. Dots is also pretty floppy. Thin enough to flop around my hand, it creates a nice flow to the wrap.


So I loved this wrap. I’m pretty sad that it needs to move on. It was a soft blanket during nap time and a soft wrap when it was time to go up. I’m falling hard for natty wraps now and I wouldn’t mind having this one in our wrap collection. This one was a tester that I wouldn’t mind seeing show up on the website. This one is a winner EmTex!

  • Running towards the weekend, like... 🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️ Little Miss Dumpling is always on the go & she’s so fast. Sometimes I can’t keep up 🤷🏽‍♀️⁣
⁣
What are your plans for the weekend?⁣

  • Anyone carry around their hair stylist on their back? No? Just me?⁣

This @2lambie reverse onbuhimo is our favorite when we go grocery shopping. Dumpling is high enough where she can see everything, but not quite touch anything. ⁣

I got a chance to check out @heritagedistilling’s award-winning BSB @BrownSugarBourbon and it is simply delicious. It’s got that brown sugar taste with just a hint of cinnamon, which makes it the perfect drink as we transition to autumn.⁣
⁣
The brown sugar flavor is amazing with that bit of light sweetness. It really helps pull in those favors in cocktails. We made a Blackberry Smash (blackberries have been on sale since it’s season!) and a Rickey (who doesn’t love a Rickey?!). They really complemented our weekend meal.⁣

Thank you @heritagedistilling & @brownsugarbourbon for gifting me these products! #DrinkingBSB #BrownSugarBourbon #sponsored #ad
  • I would love to be a @magnatiles brand rep! It’s one of the toys that work for all the ages and my kids get along so well when they’re playing with them. I have three kiddos - Birdie (8), Tot (4), and Dumpling (1). We reside in the SF Bay Area of California.  #2019mtbrandrep

Also shout out to @gleafulpresets - this picture was dark and almost unusable. 😂 now it’s one of my favorite shots.⁣

  • I’ve been holding off on posting these @dermae products because I wanted to try them. I’ve placed them on my tattoos and on Birdie’s scars from boo-boos over the summer & they work AMAZING! They keep your skin so moisturized and the scars have been fading nicely over time. My tattoos are looking nice and bright. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you @dermae for gifting me these products! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
