HOW IT STARTED
I am a mom of three beautiful kids – all of them homeschooled – and a wife to a husband who supports my passion for babywearing.
My first son was born prematurely, with relatively low birth weight and a weak stomach. When he was two weeks old, I used a wrap for the first time – he fell asleep in seconds, and since my hands were free I finally could take care of some things at home. The next day I discovered the possibility of discrete nursing: I didn’t have to hurry back home or carry a bottle with expressed breast milk or look for a safe place to breastfeed him. It became easier to be close to my baby and quickly respond to his needs, thus we both became calmer and happier.
Besides keeping your baby safe and comfortable,
baby carriers help you to keep up with your life.
Trying to find a perfect carrier, I finally created my first Mei Tai. And I just couldn’t stop there. With two and then three kids, babywearing became more than a matter of interest – it was the only possible solution.
It’s about your personal confidence and freedom in a long journey of raising your kids.
Since then, I have been interested in every aspect of baby carrying, always reading, studding, looking for more information. Eventually, I’ve become a professional babywearing consultant and dedicated my life to helping moms and dads on their own parenting journey. I see babies every day, which gives me the strength and passion to keep working on new models, improving and checking every little detail.
