Should I get a Gira?

I really want to get into wraps but I'm hesitant. I've got a Boba carrier, Sakura Bloom RS, and Moby. Would I like a Girasol? I'm not crazy about the Moby while out and about because it's so long for wrapping. Help?

ETA my DD is 5 months old and 12 lbs if that makes a difference!

I love Gira! They are really supportive, so many to choose from, can be used from newborn well into childhood, etc. I think Giras are a good starter woven too.

Re: Should I get a Gira?

If you are not into the Moby and wrapping in general, then you probably won't be into a woven wrap either. You are still going to be dealing with a lot of fabric, unless you go with a shorty, but then you are limited with the carries you can do. If you do buy one and decide you don't like it, you can resell it for close to what you originally paid- they hold their value very well

Well the great thing with a girasol is that you can get a different length. There are plenty of short wrap options with a shorty. I use shorties actually more than my long woven wraps. In fact here's a pic I took today of me and ds in a sz 3 woven wrap. He's 2 months old and 15 lbs

Re: Should I get a Gira?

So I'm going to bite the bullet and get one I think. What size should I get (I'm thinking that I'll get the longest so I can do the most carries)?

Re: Should I get a Gira?

Size 6 (4.6 meters) is usually a great starting point for everyone. If you're petite, maybe a 5, and if your bigger, then a 7. But usually everyone can do most if not all carries with a 6. That's so cool you're getting a wrap! I was really hesitant at first, but I'm in love with them and now I have 10. LOL.
