Babies were meant to be worn!

When babies are worn in a baby carrier, the whole family benefits. Babies and caregivers experience warmth, safety, bonding and so much more!

Today’s wraps and slings are comfortable, efficient and safe for the caregiver and the child. But not all slings and wraps were created equal. Different wraps offer varying position possibilities. Every brand has its own distinctive look and feel – whether it’s the Asian inspired brocades of the Mei Tie or the handsome fabrics of our pouches

At A Child’s Garden, we don’t just sell you a sling. Our in-house Babywearing Educator, Meg Eisenhower Barry, will help you find the sling that is just right for your body, your lifestyle, your family and your baby. You will have the opportunity to try on our slings either with your baby or with one of our weighted babydolls. And we have facts and testimonials available for each style. We are all babywearers, so you will be talking to people that know slings firsthand! We can’t wait to help you find the perfect carrier.

Call us to find out when our next Babywearing Workshop is being held. Meet other babywearing parents, experience our wraps and slings, and decide which ones are right for you.
