Let me introduce you to Emily - my good friend from high school and the mama behind Lullaby Slings! Emily and I lived a short distance from each other growing up in the mountains, but our paths didn't cross until high school when we took many of the same classes and sung together in choir. She's a genuine, deep-thinking individual who I'm happy to be in touch with all these years later. (I tried to find a picture of us in our dorky choir outfits, but it must still be in the picture chest in my parents' house. Too bad - we looked really dorky, if I recall! Not that we were dorky ... ahem ... it was just the 90's dresses that did it to us.) ;)
baby-wearing with other mothers. I discovered baby-wearing with my
first son. He was an intense baby and I will always be grateful to
the woman who said "try this" and handed me a sling! After using a
variety of carriers with my three children, I developed my own
favorite patterns and started sewing them for friends, and then
friends of friends, eventually opening an Etsy shop. I enjoy creating
beautiful, comfortable carriers and I love knowing what a difference
they make for mothers and babies.
Currently I sew ring slings, mei tais, toddler play slings, snuggle
blankets, burp cloths, and scale slings for use in midwifery
practices. You can order pre-made items, or let me create a customized item just for you!
