  • Helped me finally figure out my baby carrier fiasco

    “Karla is amazing and helped me finally figure out my baby carrier fiasco. I thought I could figure it out on my own but there is so much more to know about babywearing than I thought possible. After many "failed" carrier attempts, I would settle on one but then my long and active baby would quickly grow out of it. Thanks to Karla, we finally have a carrier he can grow in and we are both happy and comfy in. Whether we are out hiking and hanging at home, we now have a carrier that does it all. THANK YOU!"

  • Encouraging, knowledgeable, patient and non-judgmental

    “As a new mom, I really wanted to dive into baby wearing but I had some anxieties over how it was going. I met Karla through a talk she did then requested her services to help with my specific questions and challenges. She was encouraging, knowledgeable, patient and non-judgmental. I have recommended her to anyone who will listen! She helped me recognize that there is always a way to make baby wearing work safely and comfortably - sometimes you just need some gentle encouragement and experienced tips!”
