Wear them Wednesday June 3, 2015

On Wednesdays I sometimes blog about a wrap, sling, or other baby carrier I've tried and loved, one I hope to try someday, and one way to wear a wrap, sling, or other carrier. 

One I love

Pavo confetti sea glass! How adorable are these polka dots?!? Pavo is one of my favorite wrap companies and they continue their streak with this beauty. This 100% cotton teal and ivory wrap is woven in the US in the Oriole Mill as an exclusive for the New York Baby Show. It is thick yet soft, and definitely sturdy enough for a toddler. Probably the least stretchy Pavo I've tried so far, but does have some stretch to it and feels like it'll probably have more once it's broken in. Oh, and it's deliciously fluffy, as seen by this wonderful "bloom" picture from before and after washing that another mama was kind enough to let me use for this post:

Wrong side:

And if you look very closely, you can see it's actually a tri weave, with "ivory, Veronica, and spearmint" threads (Id probably say white, sky blue, and Jade) all intertwined:

It wrapped nicely even not really broken in at all. I'll try to add another pic in the future when it's more broken in! For now, here's a fwcc with flipped shoulders and flipped rail:

I definitely think the confetti pattern super cute yet modern and SeaGlass is such an amazing color! If you love Pavo too or think you might, find out more about them and connect by checking out the Pavo Textiles website, Facebook page, and Instagram and Tumblr feeds, and the Pavo Form website and Facebook page!

One I want

Bijou Wear High Plains Windmills! Bijou Wear is a newcomer to the wrap scene and was started recently by a super nice U.S. mom named Jaime. Jaime is a military wife and will be donating a portion of the profits from Bijou Wear wraps to the Carrying On Project, which I think is really admirable! Based on the testers I've seen so far, I'm pretty excited to see what Bijou has in store for the future. I think their windmill print is so cool, and yet different from other wraps I've seen. It's made of Eco2Cotton which is basically recycled scraps of cotton from mill and factory floors. They don't re-dye it, so it may very rarely have little traces of darker or light color flecks (like recycled paper!) here and there, but mostly melds together into a cool off white color. Jaime says the feel is comparable to a hemp/cotton blend, which sounds right up my alley! And as a Midwest girl, I find the windmills modern yet homey!

I think its a really interesting versatile neutral and I really hope I get to try one someday! Windmills will be releasing later this month, and you can get the scoop on the Bijou Wear website,  Bijou Wear on Facebook, and the Bijou Wear FB group plus connect with Bijou Wear on InstagramPinterest, and YouTube!

One way to wear it
A friend who is a new mom was asking about how to nurse in a stretchy wrap so I hunted down this video that seems really helpful for demonstrating a couple different ways to breastfeed while you have a baby in a stretchy wrap!
