Default Baby Taylor

I recently acquired a Baby Taylor.
I would like some help with purchasing some new strings looking. Cannot remember what I put on but it was from information I got off the Taylor site.

I would like to know what others are using.
This is my first post and am happy to be here!

Last I checked they used Elixer Nanoweb lights on the Baby.

Given the relatively short scale of the Baby, I would guess that anything lighter than 12's is going to feel very loose and "swimmy"... depending on the feel you want the guitar to have, I'd go up to 13's, if the Baby will handle it.

Taylor is obviously the call to make to determine what range strings to use on it...
