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!

  • 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. ⁣

  • I was so excited to try out these #japanesecosmetics! I’ve heard so many good things about @cureaquagelofficial and it’s always sold out on different websites. I was #gifted these products to try out. ⁣
⁣
The #naturalaquacuregel has been amazing with this winter weather. My skin has not been agreeing with it. It’s so dry and flaky - which has really ceased with the use of the #gentleexfoliator. ⁣

We had a fun Christmas! It’s always wonderful to get together and see everyone. A is already back at work and the kids have cabin fever. They want out, but it’s rainy and wet. They want to play with their new toys 😂🤷🏽‍♀️ ⁣⁣

How did you end up celebrating?⁣⁣
