Welcome to Nuzzle Baby, formerly Baby Capes! Feel free to browse the blog for pictures and information about my slings.

I am Jessica, wife to Tony and mom to Gage and Evie. I am an occupational therapist turn stay-at-home mommy. I began wearing Gage as soon as he came home from the hospital and I can't imagine life without a sling. As an OT, I appreciate the developmental benefits for baby. As a mom, I appreciate the convenience of having my baby close and my hands free.

When Gage was little I wore him everywhere in an area where baby wearing is not very common. Now I am wearing Evie, and nearly every time I go out, people ask me about the sling and if I sell them. Now I can say yes! I look forward to helping other moms and dads discover baby wearing!

I tried several other shoulder patterns in slings and none of them were as comfortable and beautiful as the style that I am using for my slings. It fans nicely across the shoulder, distributing baby's weight and making it easier on mom.

I only use aluminum rings from SlingRings.com, which are specifically made for baby carriers. My fabrics are ones I would use to carry my own kids and meet my requirements for beauty and comfort for both mom and baby.

Finished sling examples

Some have asked to see some more examples of my slings. You can see the ones in the pic at the top in use, but here are some more that I took before sending them on their way.

I have enough for 3 more of these:

I love this pink paisley fabric. I know I can get more of it and the polkadots above.

The looking through Denim Gauze at the light. Gauze fabric is better used for small babies, as it is not as supportive as heavier fabrics.

New Blog

I finally decided to register another blog with the correct name. It was just too confusing to keep the "Baby Capes" name for my Nuzzle Baby slings. Thanks for shopping!
