Bellala Baby Pouch #babywearing

Bellala Baby Exquisite Infant to Toddler Car Seat Covers, slings & accessories www.bellala-baby.com Our Story…Bellala Baby was founded in 2005 with the birth of my niece Isabella. She was the first baby girl born to our family and we were so thrilled after having three boys. In an effort to make something quite special for our newest family member I made her a carseat cover all in pink posies and butterflies… she was going to be a girlie girl whether she liked it or not. This first gift lead to many requests and suddenly I was in business without much effort besides a love of creating and the time to make it happen; I had been an at home mommy to my son Nickolas since May of that year. Since then countless mommies have come to us to create something special for their little angel. We are pleased to have. . .

Product Review: Comfy Joey Ring Slings #babywearing

While I was perusing the internet in search of pouches, I discovered a neat contact and found that she had changed to selling more ring slings instead (although there are a few pouches left on clearance!). After some discussion, Ayesha offered me a price on a ring sling so that I could acquire one for review (I promptly told SisterL and she bought it for herself, I’m just “borrowing” it *wink*). [Note: As with all my reviews, these are my own thoughts, and I did not promise a positive review.] Based out of the Metro DC area, Comfy Joey was started in April 2005 by Ayesha Ghatala, and specialized in high-quality baby slings. It was Ayesha’s own passion for babywearing that inspired her creation of her own line of slings. Comfy Joey also carries Doll/Toy Pouches, past Limited Edition Collections of Ring Slings, Rebozo Shawl Carriers, Cashmere Nursing Covers, Carrier. . .

Product Review & Giveaway: Rockin’ Baby Sling #babywearing

This giveaway is now closed, but please enjoy the review. So picture this. It’s Thanksgiving Holidays, the Enginerd’s parents are up for the week to spend time with AppleBlossom (grandchild #1 for them), we decided to take them sight seeing to a town nearby with an adorable township (bigger than our own). We are walking by the train (permanently resting), visiting the Village Toy Maker’s Shop, and an adorable restaurant called the Silver Caboose and Side Car Market (french onion soup is to die for!). While the Enginerd goes into the Bike shop to get a part to fix my tire we walk down the street. I’m sporting my Belle Baby Carrier with holding a blanket up over her to keep out the chill. In this area normally as I walk about people always comment on my carrier, yet in this instance it was I who commented on the babywear. . .

Etsy Spotlight: BabyEtte Boutique #babywearing

Today’s Etsy Spotlight is BabyEtte Boutique and the creative mind behind it, Beth. Come back later this week and look for a review of a BabyEtte BabyBasics Super Wide Ring Sling with a giveaway!  So, who is she? My name is Beth, and I’m the creative force behind BabyEtte. I know I couldn’t be where I am now without the support and love of my Husband, four daughters, and the grace of our Lord. I have been truly blessed, and try not to take these things for granted. My parenting journey began 10 years ago in Seattle, Washington. I found myself trying to find my place living a dichotomy between a “crunchy” parenting style, and conservative Christian beliefs. I felt like I was standing with a foot in two different worlds. Now it seems that babywearing, cloth diapering, and homeschooling have caught on. We are no longer the only ones. . .
