I had two wonderful friends give me baby carrying devices when Amelia was born. Dunya gave me her Ring Sling, and Sarah gave me her Moby Wrap to use for awhile. I love both carriers for different reasons. Every time I leave the house someone asks me where I got my baby carriers. After doing some research I realized that I could make the ring slings with a fair amount of ease, and thus Busy Bee Slings was born. I have since sold four slings and given one away as a gift. I recently made business cards so that I could hand them out when people ask me. I'm not attempting to make a full blown business out of this sling making, but I am interested in making and selling the slings part time.
If you know someone who is having a baby and would enjoy a sling, please consider e-mailing me to place an order. I have several fabrics to chose from, and the slings range in price from $25-30, which is deeply discounted from the traditional Maya Wrap found on-line.
Slings offer the benefit of being extremely comfortable both for Mom and Baby, they fit nicely in a diaper bag, they are quick and easy to put on, work well as diaper changing pads, nursing cover-ups, burp cloths, and even picnic blankets. Plus they last from birth to "toddlerdom". I even used my sling to hold Hadley on my back this weekend at Art in the Park. I'll post a photo of Amelia in her sling shortly. She is immediately happy when carried in her sling.
Just thought I'd let you know.
