A Babywearing Post

Well since its been here over a week I think its about time I blogged about my gorgeous Didymos Ginkgo wrap conversion by Fay at Opitai Baby. This stunning carrier arrived on the 21st and I decided against blogging about it over Christmas as I anticipated readership to be down and I want to share it with as many people as possible!

Ginkgo Opitai conversion

So for the babywearing geeks amoung us, the wrap was a size 6 and was converted to a wrap-tai with pleated shoulders, a wrap straps, head rest and rainbow topstitching on the waist which we requested to be 4 inches wide and floppy (so not standard). We went without sear darts as we are now finding they aren’t giving T* the ‘ideal’ seat. In the picture above I have folded over the waist to make the body of the carrier shorter as this carrier is for when T* is a bit bigger. The picture just doesn’t do the carrier justice, it is just beautiful and best photographed in natural light.

So, the finer details aside, wow, what a carrier! So comfortable, very supportive and beautifully made…I can’t wait til the drier weather is here so we can really try it out! Huge thanks to Fay at Opitai Baby for your amazing work!

And on the subject of babywearing, I’m looking into setting up a Folksy shop to sell some simple babywearing (and other) artwork. Watch this blog for a link….
