Mokosh Hyades Twilight tester

This Mokosh tester is really lovely! So comfortable and supportive.

The deets:
Mokosh Hyades Twilight
Fibre: merino 26%, cotton 67%, cashmere 7%
Weight: 320 g/m2

The animal fibres give it a friendly fuzziness but I didn't find it prickly which surprised me (though I didn't wear it against bare skin). It's a thicker wrap but very soft and easy to wrap with. Cozy and cuddly and not at all beastly. Solid with my toddler without feeling at all rigid or stiff. I haven't tried a wrap this comfy that was so supportive! The pattern rocks carries that show both sides :)

Honestly I didn't expect to love this wrap as the colours aren't what I would choose and I tend to find animal fibres prickly or itchy, but I really like wrapping with it and wish we had more time to play!

Back carry with pre-tied chest belt

Hilariously uneven tails. This was our first try on our own and second try at this carry, so oh well. But look, baby toes 💗

I'm sure it has a more technical name than that but that's what the YouTube video is called so that's all I know. I have been lazy/chicken to wrap bug on my back. I wanted to have someone show me to get started, but when I did get help at a babywearing meetup they showed me double hammock which I found really tricky to start with. I didn't feel like I got as much hands-on help as I needed, and I was scared of her falling as we were on a bare concrete floor and no-one really spotted me. So once I got her up I was stressed, sweaty, a mess, and decided I was done with back carries for the day. And then didn't try again for a couple months (oops).

Our first back carry in a beautiful Kokoro wrap. I forgot to pull up the chest pass and no-one corrected me 😂

We went to visit a local mama to try out her Pavo Fable wrap recently and she was kind enough to show me this back carry which starts on your front. I was much more comfortable starting bug on my front and scooting her around and this was much easier/quicker than double hammock. It's our new carry to master. Ok, fine, to get proficient at. Let's be real. 

I didn't play with Fable as much as I meant to (the mama was kind enough to loan it to us!) but I found it supportive and it really stayed in place. It's a fan favourite for a reason!

Glam mom life

When you got your pants wet while sitting on the corner of the tub to watch your little so changed in your pjs because you're home for the night, but then the dogs start whining to go out and hubby is putting the little to bed... Out you go in your donut pants and his hoody :p

Well I've been absent for a rather long time! I've been busy, as you can see - I made a tiny human! How crazy is that?! I've also done a big move.
I hope to be revamping this spot soon... Stick around 😘
