Luluna Slings Unicorn Sunrise

  • $$
  • Machine woven

  • Best for: Smaller babies
  • Carries: Great with all!

I was so excited to see this woven wrap show up in the mail. I threw Dumpling up as soon as possible. I knew I needed some bright, fun colors in my life. It really helped pull me out of the funk I was in. The unicorn pattern was a lot of fun too. I love being chosen to check out these wraps – I love being able to test them in all different carries.

I’ve been loving thinner wraps lately, as Dumpling is still really small. It makes it easier, so I don’t feel like I’m losing her in the wrap. I threw her up in a front wrap cross carry when we went grocery shopping and it was pretty perfect. It was nice, thin and airy. She didn’t overheat in it at all. I had small children come up to me, to point out the colors and the cool unicorn on her back. The wrap didn’t feel diggy in my shoulders at all, even when I had the chance to throw Tot up in a double hammock. It didn’t feel too bad.

There is some stretch to this wrap, with a decent amount of recoil. It stretches a bit while I’m wrapping, but it springs back right into place. So it maintains its shape pretty well. There is decent moldability in this wrap. It wraps like an ace bandage. The passes hug really well.

I don’t know if I would consider Unicorn Sunrise to be a workhorse wrap, but it’s no delicate flower either. The weave is tight enough, that I can’t imagine many pulls happening. Cotton and Tencel are pretty simple to care for, but as always, make sure you follow the company’s directions on how to care for the wrap.

I was able to wrap both Tot and Dumpling with this wrap. I love having both kiddos to wrap – a smaller, light baby and a bigger, heavier preschooler. I can see how the wrap feels with both of them and it really helps in comparison. Above is a picture of Tot, in a multi-pass carry – Giselle’s with a waistbelt. I love using this carry, because the passes go under each leg and I get the support of the waistbelt… so some of the weight is distributed to my hips. It makes it easier to carry him for longer periods of time. This wrap shone with that, the thinness of the wrap made it so that the multiple passes weren’t too cumbersome. It’s nice and airy, so we weren’t sweating in the wrap either.

A happy, wrapped baby is key. Look at her and that neck though. She’s getting a lot bigger! But Unicorn Sunrise was nice with an itty not so bitty baby. The thinness made it easy to wrap her and I really liked the colors. The Tencel made this wrap nice and snuggly, like a fun blanket. It was also nice and floppy, which I tend to like.

Look at the unicorn! Isn’t he cute? I normally shy away from big patterned wraps, but we are a unicorn loving family so this was a lot of fun. I love the gradient of colors. I like the brightness. It was a lot of fun to host this wrap. Luluna Slings always comes out with great wraps and they did not disappoint at all.

  • We pulled out our @appleblossomwovens Black Agate Tencel wrap for this chilly weather. It’s been cold and rainy, so the extra coziness of Tencel has been great. ⁣

Black Agate has been one of our favorite monochrome wraps ever. 🖤 It truly speaks to me. I can’t wait for Reflection to be released which is another monochrome wrap, with a kaleidoscope weave. Both white and black weft are speaking to me. M

  • Who is always at the ready to take somebody’s head off during the holidays? 🙋🏽‍♀️ Just look at me wrong or finish my favorite dish and it’s over. ⁣

  • Obsessing over @squeezamals this holiday season! The picnic pack was the cutest addition to our Squeezamals collection. Everything came for a perfect picnic lunch. ⁣
⁣
Dumpling loves the texture of the squish of the Squeezamals. She is always found with one in her hands. ⁣
⁣
If you’re interested in grabbing some for your littles, check out your local @walmart!

  • I volunteered in my daughter’s classroom for Thanksgiving. I helped on the food line so I had to tie Dumpling to my back and make turkey sandwiches. We do teach the kids that we don’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving, and the teachers discussed the truth with the kids. I’m glad I didn’t have to step in like previous years 🤦🏽‍♀️⁣
⁣
My tote bag from @shopkindredtogether is my favorite though. I’m able to fit everything in there. A quick link to the shop is in my profile & you can use code APRILOCT to save 💰 ⁣

  • We were so lucky to be able to check out the Flip & Spin for the Win bundle - thanks to @PowerYourFun. The bundle included Laser Launchers (which I can’t pry out of Tot’s hands), the Mini Cyclone Stunt Car, and Turbo Tops Gyro Cars - which you see pictured here. These are our favorite part of the bundle, the kiddos are constantly try to do tricks with them. ⁣

Thank you Kaliber Global Toys for this awesome gift! #sponsored #PowerYourFun #TurboTops @apexdropofficial
  • Yesterday was my birthday! I’m thirty-something (the something is silent 🤪) and it was a good day. A made it back from a 10 day trip just in time to celebrate. The kids were so excited to make mom’s day fun. ⁣⁣

My sister always grabs a red velvet bundt cake for me and I love it. It’s my favorite. My grandmother used to bake me a red velvet cake every year when I was younger and it’s important to me to have it. ⁣

Here’s to another revolution around the sun ☀️
  • I posted about the awesome @pjmasks PJ Masks Seeker about a month ago. I grabbed it at @target and kept it hidden until it was Tot’s birthday. He had already completely forgotten about it & it was a wonderful surprise to open on his day 🎂 He’s been playing with it nonstop and his sisters keep trying to get a turn. ⁣

Thank you to MomSelect for gifting us this toy. It’s the perfect toy for this @pjmasks obsessed family. #ad⁣

  • My middle child. My wild child. He’s officially 5 years old and 1 day. I tried to make sure he had a fun filled day yesterday and now I’m exhausted. This year he decided he didn’t like cake and asked for donuts instead 🍩 ⁣

Happy birthday Tot 💕
  • We saved this Star Wars coding kit for Tot’s birthday and it was a hit! He was totally interested in putting it together and making things work. He’s my little tinker. ⁣
