Review: Baie Slings Calypso

Brand: Baie Slings
Type: Calypso
Blend: 100% combed cotton
Size: 5

This beautiful blue wrap arrived on my doorstep a few weeks ago now, and has been one of our most used wraps ever since! Another beautiful wrap from Baie Slings, Calypso is the same pattern as previously released Magma, but in a different colourway and larger scale pattern. Although the Trowen pattern has been my favourite from Baie Slings, I couldn't resist the beautiful blue colour of Calypso, so decided to order. I'm so glad I did, as this wrap is really striking in person, and really wonderful to wrap with, and has become one of my very favourite Baie Slings wraps.
The larger scale pattern and slightly smoother feel of Calypso makes it very easy to wrap with, and easy to tighten in a multi-layer carry. The combed cotton gives it a wonderful soft, cushy feel, making it very comfortable when wrapped. It arrived feeling beautifully soft and ready to use. I really love the appearance of the larger scale pattern, and in this striking blue colour combination, it reminds me of water whirlpools. As with all Baie Slings wraps, each hem is stitched in a different direction, meaning there is no 'wrong' side to this wrap. The hems are immaculately stitched with very neat little middle markers. Calypso is supportive with my large toddler, helped by the fact it is easy to wrap with, allowing me to get a better, more supportive wrap job each time. It would also be wonderful with a little baby, as it is so soft and cuddly.
I'm so pleased to see this wonderful, friendly company going from strength to strength, with their latest release selling out super fast! I always look forward to seeing what Baie Slings are doing next!
