less expensive wraps

I need help from you pros as to what wraps don't cost an arm and a leg. I will be wearing a newbie and my 22m old son. I can't afford a $200 wrap so if you know of any fairly gender neutral wraps that would be perfect!

Thank you for your help!

Also, I have a moby for the newbie but I didn't use it much with my boy and didn't use it past 3 months so I'm ok paying a decent amount for one that will last...sorry for rambling. Lol

Re: less expensive wraps

Most woven wraps aren't $200, those are the limited edition or "luxury" wraps

Some great wraps for less are Girasol, Storchenwiege, Dolcino, BBslen, C&C, Ellevill, Natibaby, LennyLamb, and I'm sure there are more. Most of those wraps are between $100 - $150 depending on the size and fabric blend you get. You can also find used ones in great condition for $100 and less.

The least expensive one I know of is Chimparoo. It's a Canadian woven wrap, and it's really really nice. http://chimparoo.ca

Re: less expensive wraps

You can usually find some used ones in the $75-85 price range. I'm happy to help if you want help looking

I'd recommend dolcino or storchenweige as good starter wraps.

Not to hijack, but since we are on the subject, but what about The Portable Baby's Wrap?

It looks like a stretchy wrap to me. 96% cotton 4% spandex. Has stretch along to width. You probably wouldn't want to use it with a baby over 15 lbs and definitely not on your back. Woven wraps should not have any stretch length or width wise. Some has a slight give or "stretch" diagonally from the weave but that's different

It could be a nice alternative to a moby but doesn't compare to true woven wrap
