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.

New Fabric

I just got home from the fabric store, and I have some new fabric to show you! I really just can't stay away from Batik fabrics. I just love them. So I bought some more. I'm also tired of making up weird names for fabric. I tried to remember what it's actually called on the bolt, but of course, I forgot, so here is my not-so-original naming system:

Pink and purple diamonds batik- $35

Blue and yellow paisley batik- $35Royal Purple dots- those color variations are not shadows! $35
Pink swirl that I am fairly certain I can get more of. $30

Orange, pink and blue shirt stripe- this fabric is a little bit stretchy- $30
