Marsupial Mamas is a family owned, family run business. Bear that in mind if you call and you hear my daughter in the background chit chatting with her stuffed sheep...
Our beautiful little peanut was born premature which presented us with many challenges. As a result we discovered babywearing early on and I'm SO glad we did. It soothed my daughter when she was fussy, it kept her warm when she only weighed 4lbs 9oz, it helped us bond in the wake of the shock, and best of all, it saved our sanity! Our precious preemie has thrived and I can't help but think that keeping her so close to us played a BIG part. I am forever grateful for discovering babywearing and the babywearing community and through opening Marsupial Mamas I hope to be able to share the love and educate others about this wonderful way of life.
We are a new business as of May 2010 and we have a long way to go - we invite you to join us in making Marsupial Mamas a successful venture :
