Natibaby Rainbow Song with Linen

Brand Name: Natibaby

Wrap Name: Rainbow Song with Linen

Reviewed by: Nina Naus

Size of Wrap: 6

Fabric Content: 60% Cotton,  40% Linen

How long has this wrap been used by you?
4-5 weeks

What size is the wrappee?
23lbs, 28-19 inches, 14 months old

What is the thickness of this wrap?

Does it have cush?
Rainbow song is a solid wrap, but it does not have cush because it is a thin wrap.
How does it feel on your shoulders?
Let me start by saying I have very picky shoulders. I had a difficult time getting this wrap comfortable on my shoulders without sandwiching it. However, it felt best in a double hammock with sandwiched shoulders and doubled up chest pass.

How much diagonal stretch does the wrap have?
Little to no stretch for this wrap.
How supportive did you find it in a single layer carry?
Ruck carry was very easy to get into place with this wrap. My little is not very heavy yet, but I assume that this single layer carry would still be very sturdy as she gains weight.
How supportive did you find it in a double layer carry?
Double hammock and front wrap cross carry were much more comfortable than the ruck. I think I would have preferred this wrap in a shorty size (3 or 4) for quicker ups and downs.
Can you compare this wrap to another wrap already on the market?
I got to try this linen cotton blend during the same time I was reviewing Starry Night in linen and cotton. I must say I do prefer the stretch of the Starry Night wrap to this linen/cotton blend because of the stretch. However, Rainbow song stays in place longer and feels more strudy because it lacks the stretch. Again, this wrap would shine as a shorty or with double layer carries.

Who do you think this wrap would best be geared to?
This would be a good beginner wrap. The thinness makes it easy to create the passes and lock them into place.

Would you recommend this wrap to a friend? Why? What did you love about it?
I would recommend this wrap to a friend that wants a budget friendly starter wrap. I loved The beautiful design (both side are gorgeous). However, I would like to warn that this wrap takes a little bit of time to break in. Iron this a few times and it gets much softer and floppier.

Please tell us a little more about yourself:
I have been wrapping for about a year. I started with a Moby stretchy wrap, I’ve tried Girasols, Ellevill, and a lot of Tekhni wraps. I would still say I’m still a newer wrapper, but I like to take risks and try new carries all the time. I am a VBE for BWI of Chicagoland and I have tried a lot of different carriers over the last year (or so) of babywearing.

Be sure to read Nina's review on the hemp version as well.

How to fix a pull in a woven wrap
     If you are just joining us. Welcome!!! Welcome to the best blog you will ever read, (hehe). We are currently doing a blog series called "How to care and fix that woven wrap of yours".  The first post was an introduction and gave you the run down on how to care for your woven wrap.

     Today we are going to focus on how to fix a pull in a woven wrap. A pull in a woven wrap is very common and to be honest so common it would be rare for someone not to have ever had one or get one during their babywearing journey. Pulls can very easily happen, anything from a broken nail to just taking it out of the package and it catching on just the right thing. Fixing a pull is a very tedious task and we are setting upon this jou…

How to Fix Thread Shifting in a Woven Wrap

     Thread shifting is where an area of the thread "shifts". This can make a weak spot in the wrap or can create a gap. Thread shifting is very common in thinner wraps or wraps that have a loose weave. And it can also be done by holding your wrap too hard while wrapping or tugging on your wrap. Thread shifting is fixable.
The following picture shows thread shifting in a woven wrap.

1) Take a sewing needle and use it to gently slide the threads straight back in their correct lines, gently pulling diagonally to edge them back in straight.  You will follow the line pattern of the rest of the wrap and will be able to tell when they are in their correct spot.

This is what it should look like when done. You will want to get those threads as close to each other as you can:

2) Follow up with a warm wash. This will tighten the fibers of the thread back up.

3) Tumble dry (if blend allows)if not then please skip this.
4) Iron
