Gold Dust Baby is an Australian retailer for all things BABYWEARING – from teething and breastfeeding jewellery to distract little ones, to soft structured carriers, woven wraps, stretchies, ring slings and mei tais.
Lyn is an authorised retailer for popular brands, including AngelPack, Ergobaby, Hug-a-Bub, Didymos, Girasol and Ellevill, and is generous with her baby wearing expertise in finding each family the carrier(s) that best meet their individual needs. If you just need to freshen up an existing stash for a new family member, you can do that too, with BabyLegs and wrap scrap accessories.
If you aren’t lucky enough to live locally, never fear – everything is shippable within Australia and you can even use her LAYBY service! Hoorah!
Now, because it’s lovely to know such clever and talented people, we have a very, very sweet give-away for you lot: a ring sling converted from Kokadi’s 100% cotton woven wrap Polar Stern (Polar Stars) by clever seamstress and converter Shishkebab, a lush rainbow crochet/oak teething necklace by KangarooCare, and just as an awesome bonus for summer, a little pot of divinely vanilla-scented Mozi Balm!
As you can see, I’ve had a bit of a play with the ring sling and it’s fantastic; impeccable work on the conversion (thanks Shishkebab!) and a fully reversible gathered shoulder, so you can wear it green side out or purple, whatever takes your fancy. Of course it’s been manufactured using industry-tested sling rings (no, you can’t just grab any old rings from the hardware aisle…) and boasts triple-stitched seams at the shoulder for safety. Kokadi cotton wraps get delightfully soft and squishy with a little washing and wearing, and while this sling stood up to my 12kg 2.5 yo nicely, it would be utterly divine with a new baby.
I’ll stop waffling and let you enter, shall I? Good luck!
