Have you heard of Ethos Babywearing ? They’ve been around for a couple of years and have some innovative blends for their wraps! They also have a pretty cool convertible soft structured carrier. Today, I’m going to tell you about my time with this beauty–Toile Bleu.
When I first grabbed this budget BreatheBlend wrap out of the bag, I was shocked by how thin but dense it felt! It is a whopping 325 GSM. Toile Bleu needed some work and I was up to the challenge! Maxine (~40 lbs) and Minerva (~20lbs) both had plenty of time up in this beauty. This wrap breathes so well and I really enjoyed it on our humid days especially. It was very grippy which helped me keep my seat popping queen (Minerva) in place once I tied off a carry.
This wrap was in my base size, so I got to try all my favorite base carries! I double hammocked almost every day that this wrap visited. Toile Bleu is ideal for me with double hammock because though it was super grippy, the passes moved easily for me and stuck in place once I moved onto the next step. I also enjoyed this with front wrap cross carry with the passes spread. I rarely do FWCC with spread passes, but this wrap made it a need for me! This wrap had some amazing shoulder pleats as well. It was flat and comfortable on my shoulders.
I recommend this wrap to more experienced wearers and also to those with heavy kiddos! Also, if you love grip you will LOVE Ethos Toile Bleu! This budget wrap is $145 for a size 9 which is great compared to size 9’s elsewhere.
Extra special THANK YOU to Ethos for your generous donation of this wrap to the Babywearing International of Hampton Roads lending library! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
One of my close friends got married to the love of her life this past Sunday at First Landing State Park. I was so happy to be there! Maxine was their flower girl–their cranky flower girl. Here are my favorite images from the day.
Rachel’s dress was so beautiful!
I loved her bouquet.
Maxine loves her Auntie Rachel very much.
Rachel picked out Maxine’s sweater and skirt. I added the boots and undershirt. She was the most adorable flower girl EVER.
Rachel’s mom and sister looked pretty amazing as well. I love seeing them.
Birdseed was in her hair.
All Bent Out of Cake did a wonderful job on this wedding cake. It matched the autumn theme perfectly.
Congratulations Rachel and Sean!!
