Baby: 8months/21lbs Toddler: 22months/27lbs This was my second tester, and it arrived while I had Sandbox. My review will, naturally, compare them to each other. Jigsaw arrived to me in loom state, so I was expecting a somewhat stiff package. Not so! I was pleasantly surprised to find it was already very soft prior to the wash. You will see from my pre and post wash pictures that it didn’t fluff up too much, but that is definitely because it arrived relatively supple to start. The beautiful colour also remained the same after a wash. It is really a pleasant colour, almost a rich gold. In hand, Jigsaw felt softer than Sandbox and I feel like the weave was perhaps a bit looser, but I wouldn’t describe it was a loose/long weave either. As far as width, it was a good width for both toddler and baby (only slighter narrower than the generous Sandbox). I would describe Jigsaw as comfy…. this is a wrap I would use a lot. It wraps easily as far as seat-making, tightening, and knots go. With both my baby and toddler I found Jigsaw to be comfortable for well over 1/2 hour. While soft, Jigsaw still has just enough grip to wrap snug, with less strict tightening then was necessary with Sandbox. I would say the knots were quite large, but I attribute that to the width and not being fully broken in. All in all, this is an excellent starter wrap and I will recommend it to beginners… But it is not just a beginner wrap, it is a versatile easy going wrap for any babywearer 🙂 Thanks again for the opportunity to test!
