Why did I want to trial this wrap?
I liked the patterns it was available in especially the owls (I have a particular fondness for retro owls patterns) and the dinosaur print looks pretty cute too. You also get to choose between poppers and velcro.
Which options did I choose?
I choose the owls pattern and the poppered wrap.
Where was it bought from?
I bought the wrap from the Nappy Lady, the wrap was on special offer and delivery was free which is always helpful.
I was a little bit disappointed that the print on the wrap wasn’t as bright as pictures seemed to indicate. It looked well constructed and I liked the ability to adjust the height with poppers. Eli is quite petit and so his size 2 wraps swamp him a little bit – this wrap should be great because it can grow with him.
We used the wrap for the night-time nappy the day we received it. It fit well over Eli’s bamboozle stretch and there was no wicking even though he wore the nappy until just before breakfast.
After a month
I’ve used the wrap quite a few times overnight and once during the day. During the day trial I had a small issue with wicking (something I’ve found before with gusseted wraps and may have been more a factor of the flexitot it was covering not being up to full absorbency) but there were no issues overnight.
I really like this wrap, lots of positives including:
- able to adjust the size of the wrap using poppers across the front
- able to get a good fit with the poppers on the waist
- available in many different prints (boy, girl and unisex)
- fit well over both Tots Bots bamboozle stretches and Tots Bots flexitots
- trim fit, not too baggy
- lasted very well overnight – 12+ hours
- nice sturdy, but flexible, fabric
Would I buy more (if I needed a new wrap)?
I have to qualify this one because we have plenty of wraps but I do like these and would seriously consider buying another one (probably with dinosaurs on it…) if I needed a new wrap.
