advice: Didymos Aqua Waves 6


I'm still looking for a woven wrap. It would be hard for me to convince DH that we need more than one since its been hard enough to convince that I need one since we have an Ergo so I want it to be the perfect wrap.
I found a Didy aqua waves used and it sounds like a good wrap but I've never even touched a woven wrap and I know some of you have experience with them. It can get pretty warm here so I've been looking for a lighter wrap but I'm worried about support since I'd like to use it as long as possible and DD is already almost 10 months.
Also I'm about 5'3" and about a size 12, is a 6 ok in length? I'm a little worried its too long.
Thanks!

I don't own one, but I've only heard positive reviews about the didys waves wraps. Apparently they are strong, but not too hot in summer. I'm looking for a size 5, but might have to upgrade once LO gets bigger depending on what carries I want to do. The bonus about a 6 is you will be able to do all the carries in it. xx

Thanks! It seems like a nice wrap but now I have to re-convince DH that I need a woven wrap in addition to the Ergo. I told him it would be cooler for the summer. Hopefully I can convince him before its gone!

I hope you get it! OH just gave me a weird look when I said I needed a woven wrap. I think I finally managed to convince him that the stretchy boba, the manduka and now the woven wrap are all mandatory items lol.

I bought it! I'm so excited! I can't wait to get it! I had to explain to DH how buying a woven wrap was not redundant to our Ergo. I explained how its going to be better in the heat. He doesn't understand why I wouldn't just always use the easy to wear Ergo.

So exciting!! I still haven't bought mine.
I'm torn between a Didymos Hemp and a Vatanai Orkney - I can't decide!

Oh awesome! I was thinking about an Ellevill paisley too. I love the idea of bamboo/cotton blend. I love our bamboo clothing because its so soft so I imagine it makes a wonderful wrap! DH's still not totally convinced that I made the right purchase. He's very practical so he sees this as redundant but I'm working on learning new carries so I can show him the versatility! I'm thinking of going to the local babywearing group meeting once I have it so maybe someone can show me a couple of carries.
she's shipping it today btw!

Mine is shipping out today as well! I should have it by next Tue and I really can't wait. It is normal to get this excited over something I have never used? Also I wasn't planning to get anything with silk at all as it's expensive, but after chatting with her on the phone I ended up with one! It was on sale too so I couldn't resist! Then I stayed up until 1am youtubing different wrap carries

The silk ones are more expensive. I also wasn't sure about how to care for them since they're silk. I guess I really don't know how to care for the one I'm getting (*off to google...*). I was looking up different carries last night too! Not till 1am but for most of the evening even though I still had work to do. I'm excited about doing some of the back and hip carries! Back and hip carries were the main reason I wanted to get away from using the stretchy wrap. We bought the Ergo for DH and because of going through security at airports but now they don't make you take the baby out of the carrier.
