Can I use my Bali Breeze Wrap with my toddler?

DS is around 25-30 lbs....(I got the wrap for the new baby coming but tried it out on him tonight)...I found a good back wrap that was comfortable, but with was tied up by my neck and was a little painful there? I tried a hip wrap and that was easy and nice. What the best back tie with a toddler? I have a true woven coming to use with the toddler. Can I use the gauze bali breeze wrap safely and comfortably with him?

I have these same questions, ds and I are both hot natured and live in the south, so I was looking to make a wrap out of gauze material, but curious about durability with a 10month old and older baby!

Re: Can I use my Bali Breeze Wrap with my toddler?

The Bali Breeze is safe to use with a toddler, but it may not be especially comfortable. In general, thinner wraps are cooler for hot weather but the trade off is that they tend to dig. The digging is more uncomfortable the bigger the baby gets. I personally find that it's more important for my shoulders to be comfy, so I use a medium thickness wrap even in the heat. For a DIY, I'd suggest linen or Osnaburg rather than gauze, particularly if the baby is over 20 lbs.
My favorite back wrap is the double hammock. It's a bit more involved than a basic ruck, but it's also more forgiving of an imperfect wrap job, and it seems more secure with a wiggly toddler. If I'm going to be wearing DD for longer than 45 minutes, I like to add a half-knot chestbelt. I'm sure you can find videos if you search Youtube.
