Oscha Slings is a company that I have not tried much. I have only tried two or three others besides this one and each time it was a different blend. This time is no different. Oscha Roses Atlanta is a blend of 47% Ice Cotton, 37% Organic Cotton, and 16% Organic Linen. I’d never heard of ice cotton until this wrap was previewed in July so I was very interested in trying it.
Atlanta Roses is a thin wrap and was very easy to wrap with. It was so thin that I was able to tie off a front wrap cross carry in a base -2! I was pretty impressed. The ice cotton made the wrap feel cooler and since there is linen also, I feel that this is the ultimate summer wrap. As I’ve been using the wrap it has been breaking in quite nicely. I mostly have been using it with Minerva (8 weeks, approx 8 lbs) in front carries. We mostly front wrap cross carry (fwcc), but we have also been doing FWCC torso carry.
Atlanta Roses has been super comfortable on my shoulders. It is flat and not cushy in my opinion. The wrap glided easily and has just enough grip to make sure everything stays in place.
One special thing I appreciated about this wrap was its writing along the side to commemorate the 2016 International Babywearing Conference in Atlanta, which is why the wrap is called Atlanta Roses. That is a wonderful touch.
Roses was comfortable even with my 34 pound toddler. Maxine was very comfortable in a multilayer back carry. We did a lot of double hammock with her. I found it surprisingly supportive and I would not hesitate to have her wrapped for very long periods of time.
I feel that Atlanta Roses would be a great wrap for all babywearers. This wrap is also good for infants, and for toddlers too in multilayer carries. If you get a chance to try this wrap, I highly recommend it!!
