Talk to me about wrap conversions...

So I have been using a connecta for my three month old, and have just started using my Tula, but I have fallen in love with my friend's Lenny lamb wrap conversion! I am wondering if it would be as supportive as my Tula? And is there much difference between brands? I also quite like the look of the wompat? Any input would be much appreciated!!

I have had a medium wompat and currently have a toddler wompat. Both were made out of girasol woven. They're very supportive and nice thick fabric. My dd is 2.5yrs and I carry her every day with no bother. I like the waist strap on the wompat as its cushioned but not too structured (like the tula) There is a fb wompat selling page.
My sis has a lenny lamb ssc, which is also a fab carrier, and slightly cheaper than the wompat, the woven fabric on her
is lenny lamb.
My dd has a lenny lamb doll carrier and the material is girasol.
Also, you can buy a size 7 of your liking and have it custom made in to a ssc. Madam Googoo is a popular choice. Just find a decent supportive wrap which you like. I had a didymos wrap converted by Squish D'lish in to a wrap tai and I love it 😀

I tried on a Lenny lamb and a Tula at the sling library and I would say they are very similar in structure but the Lenny lamb is softer so a bit more comfy.

Another one here with a toddler Wompat. I had mine custom made with one of the limited edition Girasol wovens, a rainbow with a black weft, and it's beautiful. They seem to hold their value well so even though it felt expensive when I bought it I probably will recoup most of that cost. Can't recommend them enough, my daughter is now 4.5 and it's still comfortable to use (she is tiny though!).

I had a preschooler dream carrier wrap conversion and it was heavenly - structured waist and lovely wide, long MT straps. My ds has always been very tall and big and I was able to carry him in it at 4 no problem
