    Default What is the best wrap style baby carrier?

    You are in SA aren't you? Have you looked at the nurture nest website? If you email her she is extremely helpful. I'm about to get a jump sac rainbow from her . For my new baby she recommended a pure cotton wrap like a jumpsac or didymos lysca. I'm getting a size 6 I think.
    Yeah I am in SA
    I haven't checked it out but have heard of it!

    Thank you! Sounds like size 6 is the way to go

    I'm going to have to google the names of the wraps you posted! I'm guessing they're brands of women's?

    I mean wovens!

    Yes they are on the nurture nest website. I've found it quite hard to get wovens, she has a good range.

    Nikki at Nurture's Nest is wonderful. I bought my pretty Girasol rainbow from her.

    A 6 should be big enough for most carries. I also have a ring sling for quick ups and downs and a ruck carry, I am going to get a shorty though as the baby I carry is almost too big to do a ruck with the ring sling!

    I just checked out the site! So much choose from!

    May I ask what a Rick carry is? And what's a shorty?

    I'm quite new to baby wearing. I have been using a pouch sling, and a beco and that's as far as my knowledge goes!

    Haha I 'think' a ruck carry is on your back carry, and a 'shorty' is a short wrap so maybe size 3? You can only do a few wraps with it but its a bit easier to lug around with you.
    I found this great website on wovens that has a chart of what carry you can do with what size. I think I just googled 'woven wrap instructions' and it was up near the top.

They also do two different kinds of stretchy wraps (like the hugabub or sleepy wrap) one in cotton, the other in merino wool.
    Is it on the ellevill site? Or through an Australian site? My brother lives in Oslo. Perhaps I should get them to post me a wrap if it's cheaper than buying on an Australian site.
