Meet our Seventh WAHM run business:

The Mom behind it all: Kelly Huges
Tell us about yourself: “After my daughter Ella was born, we started babywearing right away. We tried ring slings, pouch carriers, soft-structured carriers, mei tais, wraps and just about everything in between. My husband was a good sport and tested out all the carriers right along with me. My mom used a ring sling with me and my little brother—and I always knew that I wanted to wear by baby...it was just a matter of finding the right carrier.
With the reality of a new baby, it became an absolute necessity. It can be downright exhausting to hold a baby in your arms all day long. Plus, it’s nearly impossible to get anything done! That’s why I'm so passionate about Picture 1babywearing. I can keep Ella close and happy while grocery shopping, running errands, doing laundry—all hands-free!
I created the Ella Belly Mei Tai carrier when Ella was a few months old. I just wasn't able to find the PERFECT carrier for us, and I knew that other parents probably felt the same way. After drafting a pattern and testing the product, I found that there was definitely a market for Ella Belly. Customers love the ability to choose two prints on this fully-reversible carrier. The padded shoulder straps provide comfort for hours of babywearing, and the leg padding gives your little one the comfiest ride!
After a number of customer requests, I released the CLICK, a half-buckle version with fold-down headrest. Over the past year, I've loved seeing dozens of Moms and Dads enjoying using the Ella Belly carrier. And with the impending debut of Ella Belly's full-buckle Soft-Structured Carrier, I look forward to many more parents discovering the joys of babywearing.

My DH and I both wear the baby, but we only have a Baby Bjorn. It works for short grocery store trips, but anything longer than that is a nightmare for my shoulders.

Waitingforbaby said...

we haven't tried any carriers as of yet… 1st baby is overdue. I can see DH preferring a semi structured carrier and me liking a combination of sling or wrap for infancy or around the house and a more structured carrier for out of the house or after the first few months

Right now we have the baby bjorn and since I didn't feel it was best for my kids when they were tiny I only started using it when they were 4 months. Dh will only wear it after they are 6 months and we normally only use it when we are out-and-about. I don't feel its comfortable enough to wear it alot.

DH doesn't use a carrier, but I like the Mai Tai style or a sling. When wearing baby a lot in one day I will switch carrier styles to give my shoulders/back a change.

He would ONLY wear the baby bjorn ONLY because of the movie The Hangover. too bad we don't have one. I prefer wrap styles...have a moby, a woven wrap, but also have an ergo.

DBF isn't really into BWing, but would put on the Beco Butterfly II first out of the ones we have.

I love them all!!! :D

My husband swore he would never wear a baby carrier, then one day at a baseball game he saw a dad wearing an ergo with his daughter on his back. He thought that was the coolest thing, so now he proudly wears our son around when we are out and about in his trusty ergo. I personally love my mei tai.

Me and my DH would love to wear our daughter! We have a cheap version of a carrier, but it hurts us both. We're trying to save up for an ERGO (and I've tried my hardest to win one!) because I've heard great things about them. I would love to have this for my daughter when she begins to play with dolls! How cute!
