Hooray for firsts!

My little shop for gentle, attached parenting is becoming a reality. I'm so happy and look forward to being up and running soon!

Today I worked out a wholesale agreement with Comfy Joey, a company that makes gorgeous ring slings from natural fibers, including linen, cotton and silk. I love that these slings are created in the USA by an awesome designer/entrepreneur, Ayesha Ghatala. These slings are sewn for a living wage in the USA by an experienced sling seamstress. Because I'm a firm believer that children should be worn in slings, not sew them, these slings are NOT available at bargain basement prices. They are safe and definitely worth every penny. You will LOVE snuggling your little one in a CJ sling.

Check out and let me know if you'd like any of the in-stock slings. I'll add it to my wholesale order JUST FOR YOU!

Ayesha is putting a Cloth and Carry exclusive into production soon to benefit a charity close to our hearts. More info soon...

If you're interested in a particular sling, I'm happy to order it with my first wholesale order this month. To compensate your wait, I'll knock off 10% of the retail price and deliver it to you personally if you're a local. If you're out of the area, you're clearly a friend and I'll ship it to you for a very reasonable price.

Cloth diapers are coming soon...hooray!

I love many, many aspects of motherhood. I couldn't even begin to explain which ones I love most...but two passions have filtered up to the top in the past couple of years.

Cloth Diapering and Babywearing

I love and have become quite knowledgeable about both. Enough of an "expert" to be consulted from time to time. Enough of an "expert" to bother blogging about either of these obsessions.

Yes, to be honest, I'm a little obsessed. But, doesn't all passion start with obsession? I'm no exception...

Thanks to my IRL (in real life) and online friends, who are too numerous to thank in person, I am starting this blog with an eye toward various things.

1. Starting a small, online cloth diapering and babywearing business.

2. Spread the love and advocate these passions in order to convert the skeptical.

3. Encourage moms and dads to embrace these small years as the gift they truly are, not something to be "gotten through".

4. To show people that cloth diapering isn't gross or hard, but a simple, easy idea whose time has returned.

5. To show people the benefits of keeping your child close to you as often as possible.

I'll be back soon! Thanks for checking in...
