Every once in a while, I review a wrap that I ask to keep a little longer. Natibaby Zinnia from Marsupial Mamas was one of those wraps. After I spent a few weeks using this wrap with Maxine, I knew that I needed it to stick around until after I had Minerva.
This wrap was a base -4 for me which is my favorite shorty size. Zinnia is a 75% cotton 25% hemp wrap. The weave is beautiful, but makes the wrap pretty pull prone. This was the softest Natibaby that I have ever tried. With my 33 lb toddler, this wrap was comfortable.
I loved it in my go-to ruck tied under bum. After a little while it sagged some though but that is expected with a wrap with nice stretch and a 33 lb kid. With multilayer carries it was less saggy so for the most part, I stuck to short back cross carry and shepherds carry with Maxine in this.
When Minerva arrived, I pretty much wrapped her in Zinnia every single day once we got home. It was newborn perfection. Soft and smooshy while still breathable enough to go on walks outside in a disgustingly hot Virginia July.
This was pretty much the softest wrap I’ve ever tried. It reminded me slightly of the softness of tencel, but it was way softer than tencel blends. I think this wrap would be great for all wearers who don’t mind a pull prone weave. This is excellent with infants and can be comfortably used with toddlers as well especially in a multilayer carry.
