The lovely Doodle, I fell in love with you at first sight, even dreamt about you and how amazing you would be in person. I could not wait to get my hands on you!!! Then you arrived. I was shocked and your weight and beastliness. I was expecting you to feel like my beloved Dove Geo. I have to say on first touch I was disappointed. So much so that I may have almost cried. I didn't even want to wrap with you. I wanted to put you back in the box and send you traveling to the next host; but that just wasn't fair. I had been lusting over you for so long that I had to at LEAST wrap my little guy (3 months). I used you in a FWCC with my cranky babe, and even though you are a 6, you wrapped short... And are thick... And again, I almost cried. So I let you sit for a couple of days.
I stared at you, wishing you were different, trying to convince myself that I loved you.
Then I went for it. I BRIBED my 2.5year old and he went up... I tried a Double Hammock (a carry I haven't done in a year due to the wrap striking toddler) and you AMAZED ME!
I was floored. I have never used the term weightless until this wrap. Doodle- you are making it up to me with this carry. 27 lbs of little man on my back and I didn't feel a thing. My son seemed shockingly happy as well! You have just enough grip to stay in place, but the second pass slid over the first with ease. I only needed a half knot to keep you in place which was a good thing because that knot would have been huge.
Now I was hooked- I had fallen in love all over again. So, I fought the wrap out of the toddler's hands (now he loved it and wouldn't let it go) and put the squish up in a FWCC again. This time he was in a much better mood, and Doodle... I love you. I eked out a full knot and we wore that carry for a couple hours. Baby snoozed, my back didn't hurt and there was not a millimeter of slippage. Oh Doodle, do I really have to send you away??
The answer was yes. He is now with the next lovely host and I'm already recruiting stalking help.
Bottom line, Doodle DOESN'T disappoint. (Even if he does at first)
Come home soon Doodle, we miss you.
