Next we tried a Shepard’s Back Carry. Here was where I noticed this wrap might not be for me. I found while the thinness and floppy nature of the wrap were great, the texture was difficult. It felt like once I tried to slide a pass over an existing part of the wrap, it was stuck like glue! I couldn’t move it anywhere!!! I basically had to collect as much of the wrap and all its tension in the exact place I wanted it to be in before moving on to the next pass. There really was no slide and glide factor. This also came into play while trying to tie a rebozo hip carry with a slipknot finish. There was no stretch to the wrap so trying to get a good slipknot was dare I say; impossible.

I also found that doing one shoulder carries for me were painful. I’m generally not a fan of one shoulder carries to begin with; my shoulder/arm will fall asleep or go numb and some wraps tend to lay wrong on a crappily placed pinched nerve. Unfortunately this style of wrap did just that. A dig into an existing problem, yes but painful none the less. So if this is something you deal with as well (this is also why I have yet to find a ring sling I can use regularly), this particular woven may not be for you.
There is not all bad news here; our final carry with EVERLASTING GOBSTOPPER was a Taiwanese Back Carry. Which has quickly become a go-to favorite carry of mine. I decided to use this carry and go for about an hour walk around my neighborhood. I wrapped in my living room really focusing on placement and security. Not only was I comfortable while in this carry and wrap but so was Jamie. He even had a wrap nap on this walk and again because of that generous width I was able to bring up some extra fabric around his head like a hood, covering him from the rays of the sun as well. When we got home and I was able to take off the wrap (no successful transfer that day haha) we were only slightly sweaty; and with 3 passes in 80+ degree heat in California, that was FANTASTIC!!!

Zebra stripe gum!
I would recommend EVERLASTING GOBSTOPPER for the 6 month and older age group, as it really does stand up nicely to the weight of older children.
And even though this particular wrap wasn’t my jam, this was the first wrap my son went to kiss; so there is always that gleaming recommendation!
Overall, I did enjoy working with this wrap and for those familiar with this type of texture this could very easily become an everyday workhorse wrap!
I am looking forward to seeing what else will be coming from TINY TIGER BABY.

” A sweet treat with several color-changing levels that spread throughout the wrap. The colors help stimulate mental activity in both baby and caregiver, helping pursue new ideas with confidance and clarity. The colors promote harmony, peace, and wholesome feelings.” – Kat
