As many of you may not know half of Team Smitten went to college for film studies and photography. In film studies 101 one of the most important and iconic "cartoons" was Gertie the Dinosaur. This was the cartoon that paved the way for all animated features! It seemed very fitting to name our dinosaur wrap Gertie, is named in honor of Gertie the Dinosaur the world's 1st key frame animator by animator Winsor McCay!
The lighter weight woven has awesome drape and is a bit more glidey than our traditional designs. As with all Smittens, this wrap is suitable for newborn through preschool and is still supportive for the bigger kiddos.
As with all Smittens, Cretaceous is made to be worn! This is a lighter weight jacquard woven wrap that can be safely used all the way from birth through toddler. It is made of 60% cotton 40% mercerized cotton and arrives in a "loom state." As your wrap is loom fresh (ie stiff), it must to be washed prior to use. The best way to break-in any woven wrap is repeated use... SO GET OUT THERE!
Initial Wash - Machine wash on cold with color safe detergent and tumble dry on medium heat
All subsequent washes - Machine wash on gentle cycle in cold water and tumble dry low. Once dry, we recommend steam ironing the wrap to soften it and prevent creasing

Extra width is awesome
Style of weave at pattern might make it vulnerable to pulls, a bit more than I expected
But I love the pattern so I don't care :)
