    She's been in a mai tai recently and loved it (just nearly took off my arms from her weight and the thinness of the straps) is it much different for her than a mai tai.

    I just bought a girasol wrap conversion ring sling and the girasol is lovely and soft and very supportive, I've been carrying a 2 year old on my back and it is great, really supportive although it's hard to do a long term back carry in a RS, but if you had the equivalent in a woven I think i'd be comfy!

    No I haven't. Might have to google how to do it! Thanks mm!

    Yup thats good. I wanted to get her up high but the mei tai just doesn't work any more for either of us but she still enjoyed being up high but it was still cutting into her fat legs

    Default Woven wrap suggestions?

    Natalie from Woven Wraps is a total angel and a pleasure to deal with-I highly recommend buying through her!

    As for wrap choices, I was advised to go with a Vatanai, apparently great for beginners and excellent in warmer weather. I haven't had a chance to use mine yet, but I'm in love with it already just from practicing and playing around with it. Good luck =)

    I did go to one but was too shy to ask to play with someone's wrap. I watched a few demos though.

    Boob, nurture nest is awesome! N is super helpful, and she stocks didymos (yay!)
    Otherwise, check out pixiemama on fb, she sells Lenny lamb, natibaby and a few others. All very pretty colours! And around the $100 mark. Just make sure you're buying 100% cotton (or something it's linen or hemp - just bearing in mind these fibers will require more breaking in), rather than bamboo ;-) (it's where I went wrong with my first lol)

    Or check out the bwbss fb page. I'll pm you once I'm back on a comp :P and if I lived closer to you, I'd loan you my stash to learn with :-)

    Easycare maybe?

    I often recommend bbslens, but they're a bit boofy.

    Then again, alpaca is the only thing I reach for on hot days LOL :-/
