Tested by Didy Parents
We regularly ask our DIDYMOS Community, including on Facebook, to put our slings to the test. You can find the resulting reports from babywearing parents around the world here:
“I have also had the chance to wrap my 3 year old on my back, and wrap my 6 month old for several hours. I was pleased to find Ada very comfortable on both occasions. It was also less grippy than I expected when wrapping a Double Hammock carry, which I was pleased about. It has a good amount of grip, in my opinion. For wrapping qualities I think Ada is superb!
So far, I have to say I’m loving it. […]”Read review
“Natties! Ah, possibly one of the most divisive colourways in the babywearing world. Some love them, some are terrified of them. I used to fall in the latter camp (the mud! The tomato sauce! The horror!) but having taking the plunge with a Natural Silk Prima, I have happily decamped to join the natty lovers. I adore the subtle elegance, the effortless goes-with-all-outfits style (and it turns out they’re not the stain attracting nightmares I envisaged). […]”Read review
“I fall in and out of love quickly with a lot of wraps. Even after wearing well over 100 different textiles, I still find new love all the time. These affairs often fade and slowly the wrap gets lost towards the bottom of my shelf.
This will not be Ada Ocean Silk’s fate. This wrap is magical and could easily be a person’s only wrap. […]”Read review
“As I write this review, my 7 month old is asleep in the Ada Tourmaline that Didymos sent for me to review. This is a tricky age in wearing as babies are arching their backs to look out and weighing quite a bit more when they sleep, bowling ball style. Not every wrap is comfortable for front carries at this age but there is something really lovely about the new Ada weave that defies the norm. […]”Read review
“[…] I’ve been blown away by the sheer comfort of this wrap. From the in-hand feel (slightly rough and definitely thin) I expected to need precision wrapping, but this is such a supportive and surprisingly easygoing wrap that I’m being a little more careless in my wrapping. The crêpe weave is airy enough to be nicely breathable and the linen is wonderfully cool – in our hot summer, I’m wrapping with very little other than Azur. […]”Read review
“[…] The lightness and thinness of this wrap makes it a natural for wearing newborn babies and for people new to babywearing. The strength of the linen means it continues to hold up to the weight of toddlers. And the thinness and properties of linen make it the ideal warm-weather wrap. […]”Read review
“[…] While wrapping I again noticed a clear difference between Crepelino and Diamond. Diamond is wonderfully glidey and it was super easy to tighten, lacking the light grip that Crepelino has. This lends Diamond well to carries like double hammock, or hip carries like Poppins and Robins where the wrap must lay over itself and still be able to be pulled tight. […] Thanks to its glide and thinness I was able to get the chest-pass so snug and smooth, something I often struggle with otherwise.”Read review
“My husband and I both agreed that with our toddler high on our back the carrier was comfortable. We each wore him one way on a 30-minute walk the other night. It was warm out and it was nice to have such a minimal carrier. When we got to the park it was easy to put him down to run around, easy to get him back up quickly to continue our walk, and, what I found most notable, so simple to carry such a small, light, compact carrier around while he played.”Read review
“[The Didy Onbuhimo is] so light and compact – it doesn’t take up much space in my bag, and barely adds any weight. I found it really helpful for running errands, when short ups are often required. I’d normally stash a ring sling in my bag for these occasions, but it’s actually more useful to have my toddler on my back – so the Didy Onbuhimo is a great alternative. […]”Read review
“[…] Structurally, the DidyKlick is a mid-way point between a woven wrap and buckle carrier. In our eyes, this means that wearers experience the best features of both carrier-types. On the one hand, the DidyKlick is quicker and easier to wear than a simple woven wrap, yet it offers the flexibility which soft structured carriers sometimes lack. […]”Read review
