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.
