We don’t sell products at babywearing groups. We permit moms to bring their gently used carriers to sell or post on our babywearing yahoo group. Most of the time, there are no products for sale at a meeting.
And so, you can imagine the most asked question. “Where can I find one of these? Like, tomorrow!?” This often from a new mom who has wrapped her baby for the very first time and wee babe has snuggled contentedly off to sleep. The new mom has that blissed out look that says, “I don’t care how much this costs…I want one now!” We had a new mom who tried out a stretchy wrap at the last G’ville meeting and I didn’t think she was going to give it back! :)
Enter My Baby Modern. This is an online store. But guess what? These retailers happen to live in Easley! And they welcome pick-up orders! Sometimes they even deliver if they are in your neck of the woods. What a fantastic thought for the postpartum family.
They carry Moby (wrap), K’tan (wrap), Lillebaby (soft structured carrier), and Zolowear (ring sling). And while they aren’t listed, My Baby Modern also retails Ergo, Puj, Hava, and slingEZee. If you’re planning to purchase one of these carriers, contact this local retailer and support small businesses! They even price-match–what do you have to lose?
Casey at My Baby Modern says they almost always have a variety of Moby and K’tan in stock. And since stretchy wraps are the most likely product to be demanded immediately requested at babywearing groups, I’ll be sending desperate mamas to Casey!
And as a side-note, while it isn’t listed online, they also keep a limited cloth diaper selection stocked and have access to many of more popular brands.
In case you’re wondering…My Baby Modern didn’t ask us to advertise for them. I was looking for a local source for carriers and remembered them. No kickback coming my way from giving a shout-out! I kinda feel good when I support local. Especially local mamas.
