The Girasol Tenango was one of the very first wraps I had the honor to host on the Wrap Wanderlust traveling wraps group. After crushing on all the Girasol wraps I have ever felt, I was looking forward to wrapping with a twill weave Girasol.
Pros: It’s a Girasol. Enough said, right? Hahaha. Okay, so I love Girasol wraps. Every one I’ve ever tried has been soft and squishy and takes very little effort to wrap with. The Tenango is no different! It is a thinner, 100% cotton twill weave wrap. It is extremely soft, like your favorite blanket.
I love how airy this wrap feels. Because it is thin, and a twill weave, it seems to breathe really well. The thinness makes it easy to get a supportive snug carry, and pull the passes nice and tight around BabyT’s little tush.
On a personal note, the biggest advantage of this wrap for my family, was how excited BigSisterJ was, when she laid eyes on this wrap. “They make PINK wraps?!” She was so enthusiastic, and asked to wrap BabyT immediately! That just made my day! I love seeing her get so excited about babywearing.
Cons: Some say that the basic twill weave Girasols aren’t as supportive for a larger baby or toddler, so that may be something to consider. This wrap is most certainly on the thin side, so it may not provide enough cush on the shoulders to be comfortable with a heavier child.
After seeing how thrilled BigSisterJ was to get a pink wrap in the mail, I think I’m going to be in search of more things for her to try out and get passionate about babywearing for the next generation! Which wraps are the most girlie for a 7-year-old big sister???
In honor of BigSisterJ loving babywearing, I’m going to buy her this book: A Ride on Mother’s Back: A Day of Baby Carrying around the World
