Who is babein
Once upon a time there was a super stylin babe. She lived a life of adventure, spreading fabulousness wherever she went. She laughed, cried, travelled, danced, conversed, shared, created and inspired. She let life's wonders fill her to the brim. Then one day she set out on her next great adventure, becoming a mumma...
How it all began
babein creator Anne Freeman is no shrinking violet. When she became a mumma in 2015 a good friend and fellow babe introduced her to the wonders of babywearing. There was only one problem. The babywearing wraps on the market were B-to-the-ORING! What's more, they covered her completely fabulous outfit in layers of 'meh'. "UNACCEPTABLE!", she cried, and set about designing a small range of super stylin printed babywearing wraps so that she and her fellow babein mummas and bub-wranglers could babe around town with their bubs and get on with the serious business of winning at life.
Why stretch is best for new bubs
A stretchy wrap is the best way to replicate the environment your bub has been in for the last 9 months and there are no buckles or straps to dig into the softest skin imaginable. The bonding experience of remaining close to mumma or another loved-one - smelling your scent, feeling the warmth of your skin, hearing the sound of your heartbeat, your voice, your breathing and feeling your movements – provides the gentlest possible transition from womb to world.
