Why I Created Baby Love Wrap
I am a very proud mother of two boys and I love them with all of my heart. I was online one evening, trying to find support, because people around me were questioning my parenting style so frequently and persistently. I trusted myself, yet the constant inquisitions made me feel the need to seek like- minded mothers with like-minded parenting choices. I didnʼt know the term ‘attachment parenting’ existed until my first son was 5 months old.
From the moment my first child began growing in my belly, I was changed forever. There was little I could have done to prepare for how profoundly my view of the world would change. I wasnʼt around many babies in my life, and I didnʼt have a role model in parenting. I also wasn’t set on any particular style of parenting. I didnʼt know if I would breastfeed, bed share, wear my baby or anything else, as it pertained to parenting style and choices. I did what everyone does before having a baby; I got the crib, the stroller, the baby carrier, the breast pump and the bottles. I was prepared for it all, or so I thought.
When he was born, I always wanted him close to me. I found that he was just too far away in a stroller and it just didnʼt feel right. I decided to go shopping and find myself a baby carrier…a great one that I could be comfortable in and wear for many hours at a time, if not all day.
After my search for the perfect baby carrier, and not finding anything very special in the marketplace, I decided to design and manufacture my own. I did extensive research, of virtually every wrap and carrier out there, and after much deliberation and inspiration, the idea for Baby Love Wrap was born.
I believed I was capable of this feat and creation and decided to take a leap, in order to supply myself and the marketplace with a fashionable, organic and comfortable baby wrap. My son built this business with me. I carried him around in this prototype wrap that I made, which I would soon commercialize. I would coordinate his naps in the wrap around factory visits every day. He attended meetings with me, while in the wrap and I never had to leave his side. It was the most special bonding experience for the two of us and I will never forget what we built, together.
I hope you enjoy wearing your baby, connecting your skin and heartbeats, and feeling the Love and attachment, as much as I did.
