My Wrap!

Today I thought I would write a post about my wrap. This wrap has incited many comments about its looks and practicality. My sister asked me if I felt like a jedi knight (I guess because of all the criss-crossing of fabric or something) and others think it looks like something that someone from a 3rd world country would wear, but I love this thing! I absolutly hate carrying around a car seat, it is to big for my short stature and I end up hitting it agaisnt my legs and jostling the poor baby all over the place. Although at times it is not the most flattering to me shape wise, I think in these pics it makes me look pregnant again, but It is so comfortable to wear and easy too. We had a baby carrier before that we used occasionally with Joey but it had so many different straps and and buckles that is was to complicated. It is surprising when I go out how many people ask me about my wrap. Amazed that it is just 16 feet of cloth! We added the cute front panel to dress it up a bit. There is a bunch of different ways to wrap it and set baby in it according to thier age and size. This wrap has been my life saver at parks and in grocery stores. Jeanie is happy and content being next to mommy and having a nice little perch to look around and it leaves my arms free to shop and/or fool around with Joey! These aren't the most flattering pics of me nor does it give the wrap its justice... but I had a hard time setting the timer and placing myself correctly for the camera!

Those are sooooo cool! I definitely want one when we have our next baby. There are so many different kinds, which one do you have and where did you get it?
