Laurna, owner of Coorie in with love babywearing consultancy represented Joy and Joe baby® at the recently concluded Scottish Babywearing and Gentle Parenting Convention. Please read on and enjoy some of the highlights of the event.
Well the first Scottish baby wearing convention was a hit! There was such a great mix of exhibitors with items such as teething necklaces to woven wraps and everything in between.
As already known in the baby wearing community, everyone is so friendly and helpful. Having us all together in the morning helping each other unpack cars and set up was lovely.
As soon as the doors opened, the room filled with parents, grandparents and so many happy babies being help close. I was speaking to as many people as I could about Joy and Joe and making sure everyone had a feel of the gorgeous wraps. Many were pleasantly surprised with a wee J&J goodie bag too with a gorgeous scrap included!
I was asked to do a wrapping demo with the beautiful connected Jewel. When I turned round I seemed to have gathered quite the crowd, but I think it was the gorgeous wrap that drew them over!
A lady came over to speak to me asking for help, she had won a stunning Joy and Joe ring sling but couldn't manage to get baby comfy. After a wee demo, she tried again and managed to get baby positioned correctly and both mum and baby were happy and content. Mum went away thrilled that she could carry her joy.
For me, that's what it's all about, helping parent and baby be comfortable together and enjoy their babywearing journey. Laurna X
