As most of you know, my oldest daughter had her second baby last summer. This is our beautiful daughter and our granddaughter, Grace. (This picture was taken on Christmas Day.) Gracie is 8 months old today! She hasn’t started crawling yet and is thinking about just skipping the hands and knees stuff and going straight for walking. She can do 3 or 4 steps on her own with you holding her hands, and she is so proud of herself (as is Grandma!)
When my daughter had Gracie, I sewed a baby sling for her, and she has carried Gracie in that sling for 8 months (see pic). Gracie loves loves loves it. And so does my daughter; she can grocery shop and houseclean and lots of other things hands free while Gracie still feels secure next to Mom. This is especially important now, as Gracie started her separation anxiety a few weeks ago!
My daughter has gotten soooo many compliments and Where can I get one? comments every time she is out with Grace in the sling, that she has decided to make these stylish baby slings to sell (Broken link, active February 4, 2008). She is an excellent seamstress and the Lord has already given her inspiration that improves my design. She has had quite a few requests for baby shower gifts, and the new moms love them! She also has some high end baby boutiques in Florida waiting to place orders.
The advantages of Kozy Kanga baby slings (Broken link, active February 4, 2008) are:
1) first of all, all sales help a Christian mom stay home to raise her children while still being a helpmeet to her husband!
2) they are made out of quilt shop quality 100% cotton, which means, quality cotton fibers, high thread count, permanent colorfast dyes, and those oh so beautiful designer prints that quilt shop cottons are known for!
3) quality construction – the seams are triple- reinforced! When my daughter was little in homeschool, we had posted on the wall in our kitchen this verse: “Be … a worker who is not ashamed of his work.” 2 Tim 2:15; and the character quality of excellence of workmanship was ingrained in her from an early age; and
4) they are the least expensive of the baby slings currently on the market! The other baby sling companies charge much more for their pouch slings, but she decided to keep her prices low because she knows what it is like being a young mom trying to make ends meet on a budget.
So if you have a baby shower coming up, and need a wonderful gift for an inexpensive price, or need a sling for yourself, try a Kozy Kanga baby sling (Broken link, active February 4, 2008), I do not think you will regret it! If you have any questions at all, my daughter would be thrilled to help you, just drop her an e-mail (Broken link, active February 4, 2008)!
