DIDYMOS slings are shaped like a parallelogram - the tapered ends make it easier to tie the knot, and overall it looks neater.
The slings will be a few centimetres longer than advertised, to allow for shrinkage after the first time you wash it (the cotton is untreated, putting your mind at ease should your little one start to chew it!).
Can be used from birth onwards, and there are a huge number of different ways to wrap your little one in it. It can seem daunting at first, but once you get the hang of it, wrapping is very rewarding.
