(Welcome again to Tammy, one of the bloggers trying out for a spot on the Ohdeedoh team. Her first post is here and comments are welcome.)
We've always liked the look of the Moby Wrap, but if you've ever watched one being, well, wrapped, you may have found yourself as daunted by it as we are.
This is where the Baby Buddha stretchy carrier comes in. We've heard it described as "the Moby for dummies" (in the non-pejorative sense, of course), with three easy-to-use pieces that can be combined to carry a baby six different ways, from birth to toddlerhood.
The Baby Buddha carrier is the brainchild of Vancouver-based entrepreneurs Ali Cross and Paula Violi. As a choosy new mother and babywearing advocate, Cross invented her own sling when she couldn't find one that suited her. After being flooded with compliments by other parents, she teamed up with Violi, an industrial designer, to create a carrier that is both ergonomic and sustainably manufactured.
Available in a selection of colors and fabrics (organic bamboo, organic hemp, and Breathtech® -- the same highly breathable fabric used in Olympic athletes' track suits), the carrier is made from fabric milled in Canada, is sewn in Vancouver, and comes in a reusable bag instead of disposable packaging.
