I am wife to the most wonderful Preacher husband in the world and a SAH homeschooling mama to a son (10), daughter (8), daughter (6), baby girl in Heaven, daughter (3), daughter (1. 5) and a growing baby (which we assume is a girl!) due the end of July! We're happily busy, in case you had not gathered that yet!
Babywearing just makes sense . . . for you and your baby. They need security, you need your hands, and you both enjoy the time to cuddle. The security of a child held close is a reminder to me of my salvation in Jesus Christ. I asked Him to forgive me of my sins and save me when I was just a child, and He did. That look of complete peace on my little one's face as I hold them close in a sling or wrap, reminds me of the perfect trust I need to place in God for today and for eternity.
I first started selling in local shops in 2007, but soon opened a shop on Etsy, and then eventually was selling only online. I love the flexibility of online sales. I can sew during my free time (mostly at night), and can be making sales while teaching math to my first grader or peeling potatoes for dinner =)! Now that would be difficult to achieve with a brick and mortar shop! The business keeps my days very full to overflowing, but I love being able to help moms keep their babies safe and close while still being a help to my own family! It's also been exciting to see my own family be involved in the shop. Not only do the pictures show me with my own babies (I can think of only one exception there), but my husband is the photographer. My oldest daughter can also now iron the doll slings and has begun to package them up for me! My husband and I both look forward to the children becoming more an more a part of the family business.
I do offer ring slings, wraps, and pouches (limited number) on my site. I see each of them as having their particular niche of usefulness.
The pouch - extremely simple. Good in a supported (more like seated position) for newborns and for hip carry on toddlers. Very quick to pop on. Harder to be comfortable for long trips with heavier children.
Ring sling - very versatile. Quick to use. Does not take up much room. Good for shorter times and still comfortable (when worn properly) for even extended use.
Wrap - bit longer learning curve. My carrier of choice most times for a hiking excursion or very extended use as the weight distribution is incredible! Not as convenient to put on in a hurry (at least the long versions!)
Because I tend to babywear for shorter periods of time, the ring sling has won out for me overall over the years of babywearing that I have had. The type carrier that is best for you is largely determined by what you will be using it for. I tend to recommend that if customers can, they purchase a basic ring sling and a wrap.
One thing that is very unique about Rebecca's shop is that all of the carriers that she makes come to you with a very helpful DVD that shows you exactly how to use your new carrier. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the DVD and learning some new carries for the woven wrap she sent me. I got the opportunity to review one of Rebecca's pure Tencel gauze woven wraps. Tencel is a natural fiber that is made from the cellulose of trees, and the tencel gauze that the wrap is made of is so lovely and soft!
The wrap was so beautifully packaged when I got it!
I received an indigo wrap and the color is just beautiful. Rebecca has the cute tag positioned in the middle of the wrap so that it is easy to locate the center for wrapping. The tencel fabric has a gorgeous crinkly look to it that I just love. It's very lightweight and breathable, but still very strong!
The woven wrap gave me the opportunity to try a wrapped back carry. This carry is called a Double Hammock Carry, and I just love this carry! It's so comfortable with this tencel wrap, and Ava loved it!
Ava is just snuggled in there. Note how her knees are higher than her bum, so she has the correct seated ergonomic position here.
Here is another view of this carry. Ava's weight is distributed really well, and because the fabric is so soft it doesn't rub on her skin or leave red marks.
Here is a front carry with the woven wrap. Ava has had a rough couple weeks with teething, so getting a chance to snuggle with Mama in a lovely wrap is wonderful.
You always want your baby high enough that you can easily kiss them!
Overall, this wrap has become one of my favorite carriers and I just love the color and the softness of the fabric. Rebecca has generously offered to give a tencel wrap to one of YOU in the color of your choice! You can choose from black, indigo, chocolate, rust, jade, or sapphire. She is also offering a 3 day discount code starting Feb 20th and ending Feb 23rd, so those of you who didn't win can still get a great deal on one of Rebecca's gorgeous carriers! The code is SPRING2013 and will give you 15% off before shipping and handling!

I love the ring slings!
Woven Wrap Baby Sling Carrier - Aqua Stripe medium weight I am due in April this one would be great!
I love the wraps! They are gorgeous!
It's hard to say what my favorite is since I haven't tried all the different kinds of baby carriers yet. But what I'd most like to try are the Tencel Wrap in the giveaway and a Ring Sling. I live in SW Oklahoma where it easily gets over 110 in the summer, so I need something lightweight.
I have yet to find a carrier that works for me. This wrap looks awesome! It's my favorite of the three!
I have never tried a wrap, but have always wanted to. Will have a newborn later this year.
I love the woven wraps!
