I was blessed with the chance to play with some Apple Blossom Wovens’ travelers this past year and Twilight has got to be one of my favorites! Look at these colors. These colors are so gorgeous. Tot is getting bigger and doesn’t go up quite as much as he used to, much to my chagrin. My baby is growing up. He still asks to go up when he’s tired, sad, sick, or just needs some cuddles. Sometimes mama needs cuddles too.

With Tot getting bigger, I’ve been really enjoying some longer wraps. I tend to be more partial to shorter wraps because he asks to get up and down so often, but I love the extra fabric for more support. In this photos, I’m wearing him in a double hammock, because multiple passes go over him. I get support from the shoulders, the chest pass and I get to tie at my waist, so some weight is shifted around my waist.

Twilight shines in a lot of carries. Giselle’s with a waist belt is one of my favorites and it worked well there too. I didn’t have any issues with diggy shoulders – but I’m not sure I would consider it cushy. I’m a fan of the pleats over the shoulder. I feel like it gives more support and I have less chance of slack in my passes. There’s limited give with Twilight, it’s not too stretchy at all. There’s a tiny bit which helps the passes smooth out around the babe, but not so much where I’m constantly fixing my carries. Twilight is a pretty solid wrap — at least for now, it might change a bit as it gets more broken in. This wrap is right in-between being cumbersome and ace bandage-y. It’s slightly bulky, but I never felt like I had an issue with tightening my passes.

This wrap does not need any special care, but I think it’s too pretty to be considered a workhorse. Like always, I recommend following the company’s directions. It’s 100% cotton, so easy to wash. It isn’t prone to pulls either. I feel like the weave is dense enough, but like always with any woven fabrics – be cautious.

Twilight isn’t a hot wrap, but I wouldn’t necessarily consider it airy either. The tightness of the weave means that it doesn’t allow much air to pass through. But we didn’t get to hot or anything while wearing out in the sun.

Twilight is grippy. You can see the texture in the photos below. The passes don’t get stuck while you’re wrapping, but it does take a tiny bit of work. I wouldn’t consider them to glide. I might have had to wiggle a little bit, here and there to make sure my passes went where I needed them to go. It doesn’t take much to tie a knot in this wrap, but as you can see below, the knot is a little on the big side. With time and love, this wrap is on its way to becoming floppy. It is not a stiff wrap.

I wish this wrap lived here. These colors are my favorite. The wrap qualities are my favorite, they remind me of Midnight Sky (review here), which has basically found it’s forever home here. I love having this wrap in my base so I can do some carries that I haven’t done in a good minute.

SO pretty.

  • 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. ⁣
