Lending Library

  Central Missouri Babywearers Lending Library currently (March 2, 2014) contains 58+ carriers.

 

Updates to the lending library policy:

1.  Late fees will be charged.

2.  Cleaning fees will be charged if carriers require special cleaning or deep cleaning.  If carriers are removed to be cleaned it takes away from other members and requires time of leaders to wash, scrub, and dry carriers.  We understand babies are messy.   The fees will only be charged for special cleaning or deep cleaning meaning  special detergents,  special washes to remove odors or stains, or multiple washes.

3. Carriers will only be checked out and returned during meetings.  If you cannot make it to a meeting it is your responsibility to return the carrier before the next meeting.  You can ship to the librarian if needed.  Please remember when shipping that the carrier will need to be shipped priority with insurance and that you will be responsible for that carrier.  You are always welcome to return lending library carriers to Sprouting Up in Jefferson City during regular store hours!

kinderpack

The Kinderpack is a totally different kind of soft structured carrier!  The first of its kind!  It features a uniquely styled shaped and contoured body panel, that creates a rounded seat for baby’s bottom.  It molds to your child so comfortably and cradles their legs in upward comfort by fostering the reccomended “bottom-lower-than-knees” seated fashion.  This puts baby in proper positioning unlike any other carrier.  The Kinderpack is one of the widest carriers available, making it very comfy for baby.  No legs dangling!  The Kinderpack is also in a class of its own with offering 4 sizes for your child, including one of the only carriers on the market specifically designed for preschoolers!  Our infant size boasts an adjustable base to change the width of the carrier- the only full soft structured carrier to do so.  The standard size is perfect for those who want to buy once, keep forever.  The toddler size is the best choice for your little one that is approaching 30 lbs or 32 inches, and wants to be arms in.  And for those bigger kids who still want to snuggle and need a little help keeping up with the older ones, we offer the preschool size- no other carrier on the market is as large. Preschool size is also a great carrier for older children with special needs.

standard: 16″ h x 17″ w- ages 8mo-3 yrs (starting at 20lbs/28″)
standard is the choice for most people.  Please realize that the standard will fit up to 3 years old/4T.  This is the size to buy if you want to buy one carrier without having to size up later.

Ring Slings

 

*1). SBP Water Mesh Ring Sling (Standard Pleated Shoulder)

**Available** 

watermeshrs

  • Mesh slings and wraps are primarily used in the water (i.e. at the pool, at the beach, in the shower). They can be used out of the water, of course, but do not tend to be as comfortable as other ring sling material (such as linen, silk, cotton, blends, etc). They are very convenient to have, but aren’t meant to be a primary carrier. 

2). SBP Wrap Conversion Ring Sling – Small – Made out of Girasol’s Light Rainbow Diamond Weave (Standard Pleated Shoulder)

**On Loan KB OVERDUE**

 RING SLING

  • Wrap conversion ring slings tend to be much more supportive than ring slings made of other materials. This sling in particular is made of the lovely Gira Light Rainbow (a bright rainbow with wide stripes). Diamond Weave Girasols are thinner wraps, with added support from the diamond weave. This sling is a great combination of breathability and comfort.

Snuggy Baby Wrap – Botanical Garden Baby Wrap

***OVERDUE***

detail_261_Botanical_Garden_Baby_Wrap_Carrier_Sling_002

Snuggy Baby wraps have everything that you could want in a baby wrap; comfort, support, and style.

Snuggy baby wraps are made with 100% cotton knit fabric. This is a much more supportive material than your average wrap. When I designed my wraps, I heard over and over again the number one complaint about stretchy wraps, the fact that they sag once the baby reachs 15 lbs. I went on a long search going through several different fabric suppliers and samples of different fabrics until I found a soft stretchy knit fabric that provided all of the benefits of a comfortable stretchy wrap, but still remained supportive enough for larger babies.

This baby carrier is completely adjustable so one size fits all. It works between various care givers of all body types. Because you create a custom fit every time you tie it on, the wrap grows with your child, ensuring that they get a comfortable secure fit from the time that they come home until you are ready to stop carrying them (generally around 35 lbs. or 3 years).

The decorative panel lets you avoid having the same old boring solid wrap that you see everywhere else. It allows you to choose a design that accessorizes your wardrobe instead of the plain solid color that completely hides what you are wearing.

The wrap measures 5 1/2 yards long. All of the edges have been carefully surged for a finished look. The tail has been tapered so you have a trim knot when you tie the wrap.

*Joy and Joe Birthing Goddess

***Available***

Special thanks to Melissa for winning this beautiful wrap for the lending library!

PregnantGoddessBellyWrapSC

This goddess is my tribute to one of the most powerful transitions of two lifetimes–that of a baby and a mother being born–and was inspired by the fact that we are part of a divine spark that connects all things. When is that better manifested than in the beautiful, strong, heavy and often difficult reality of pregnancy and birth? I originally planned to call this wrap Stardust as it shows our connection to the stars which is both physical and metaphysical. It also shows the baby’s journey earthside to our arms and that transcendental place a mother might find herself while birthing that may or may not look peaceful to outside observers.

Birthing Goddess is woven in blue and white 100% Egyptian cotton by Joy and Joe and is manufactured entirely in the UK. The weave is similar in density to a Natibaby wrap–it is fairly tight and even with similar stretch and support.

Perfect for front, back, and hip carries for newborns through toddlers.

*B*Storchenwiege Leo Black and White

**Available**

wovenwraps.com baby carriers woven wraps for traditional baby wearing

The small diamond weave of this wrap makes a subtle beautiful pattern and the black and white color is classic. This is your wrap to go with everything and can be easily dressed up or down.  This is a great wrap to learn with!

The Storchenwiege woven wrap to has  a silky soft feel.  The sling was developed especially to support baby’s back properly, to be comfortable for long periods of time, and to be durable (even with a 4 year old, Storchenwiege is comfortable and strong).

Why Choose a Storchenwiege?

  • All cotton used in the Storchenwiege Baby Sling is from  strictly regulated cotton farms and are all Oeko Text 100 certified cotton, free from chemicals or residue in the fabric.
  • The weave differs from all other slings in the yarn strength used.
  • In both directions (warp and woof ) of the cross weave Storchenwiege  uses a double strength, not simple thread. This helps support baby’s back, the correct leg positions,  baby wearer’s shoulders and back.
  • Not only does the strong weave help the durability of the baby sling, it also holds the tied knot better as it doesn’t give after the baby is placed in it.
  • This special weave does not influence the elasticity which is necessary to embrace your baby. Neither does it influence the airflow through the woven fabric.
  • No chemicals are used in any of the proceedure.
  • Storchenwiege is manufactured in Sachsen, Germany, under strict environmental regulations. German manufacturing alone stands for the highest quality possible.
  • Storchenwiege Baby Slings have a double hemline for durability and the correct embracing of your baby’s back and leg position.
  • All Storchenwiege Baby Slings have tapered ends to ensure easy tying.  They form a parellelogram.

*B*Neobulle Manon Grise 7

** Available**

 manon gris

  • Manon Grise is a really beautiful rainbow striped wrap.  Each of the multicolored stripes really stands out with intensely saturated hues.Manon Grise is colorful, very bright and cheerful, but in a more muted way.  That is not to say that Manon Grise looks faded or dull because nothing could be farther from the truth.  Rather, she is a tad more wintery.  Color without fluorescence!Manon Grise has a base thread of grey (grise, in French), which has a profound effect on the overall look of the wrap.  It gives a definite impression of pink or lavender to the overall smorgasbord of multi-color but the grey base thread seems to have the beautiful result that each colorful stripe stands out in its own right so that the many colors, including bright blue and gold, each has its place and each is more distinct.This is a great choice for anyone who wants to be wrapped up in color while keeping their baby or child close throughout the day, over the course of a trip to the zoo, or for some hands-free nursing!
  • 100% Cotton and Oeko-Tex  certified.  Manufactured in France by a mom owned business.  Approx 70 cm wide for use from newborn to preschool.
