I am thrilled to introduce you to the newest arrival in Seattle and the babywearing community....Sweet Baby Wraps! Your local online shop for baby carriers and babywearing education.
I am a mom of three girls, 7, 2, and 1 yrs old, and though I wore all of them I didn't discover the many amazing carriers available off the beaten path until I was pregnant with my third. My first ring sling purchase, ahhh it was so comfy, I caught the babywearing bug big time. I got involved with the Seattle Area Babywearing Network and fell in love with woven wraps, ring slings, mei tais and buckle carriers. A few months ago I became a Certified Babywearing Educator through the Babywearing Institute and got to work on Sweet Baby Wraps so I could share what I have learned with other parents. The baby and toddler years have so many blessings, but also many challenges. Babywearing can make such a big difference in more peacefully getting through those challenges.
Sweet Baby Wraps is a place where the customers matter the most - I have my own dreams for this shop but I want it to be a shop guided more by its community of customers and babywearers. I look forward to trying out new brands with you like EmeiBaby (that I expect to arrive any day!) and Little Frog, and sharing the sweetness of our favorites like Tula, Girasol and Didymos. Let me know what else you would like to try, firstname.lastname@example.org. I have our first exclusive wrap in the works and expected in November (I LOVE it and I think you will too!!). I will soon be adding a list of local babywearing groups around the country to the website because hands on help from experienced moms is priceless. I look forward to doing workshops around the Seattle area and continuing with 1:1 in-home babywearing consultations.
In this blog you can expect to get updates on the store and announcements of new arrivals and special offers as well as regular posts sharing the wonderful aspects of babywearing and how-to's. There is a learning curve with babywearing and I hope to help you get to the top of that curve more quickly. SweetBabyWraps.com will also expand with more thorough education, babywearing tips, and features such as layaway and a wish list.
Now, to celebrate! Every baby carrier purchase for the month of August will come with a special gift. Now through August 8th your baby carrier will be shipped with a free Sidekick ChicoBag! This is a cross body bag that is perfect for babywearing. It is lightweight but sturdy and comes in three great prints. They are also available for purchase if you don't need a wrap this week.
More good news - Sweet Baby Wraps offers FREE SHIPPING for all orders shipped within the US! If you are local I offer local pick up on the Eastside of the Seattle area or at one of the Babywearing group meetings in the Puget Sound - let me know in the order comments what might work so we can make arrangements to meet. Not only will you get your wrap right away but you will get 10% off by using the code: localpickup10!!
I would love to help you pick out your next baby carrier and figure out how to wear it so you and your little one love it! Email me and let me know how I can help you.
