Wear My Baby Reading

Associate Consultant

Katie started her babywearing journey with her second child in 2012. She fell head over heels in love with woven wraps and began investigating the science of weaving and blends of yarns. Winning a wrap design competition was the spark that led to Katie’s own woven wrap company, Jacq and Rose, which she launched in 2016.

Katie trained as a Consultant with the School of Babywearing and is a volunteer at Reading NCT Sling Library.

Her babywearing days with her own son, who is now four and a half, are now coming to an end but she loves being able to help others on their babywearing journeys.

Katie is based near Reading and covers the surrounding areas in Berkshire. You can get babywearing advice from Katie at the monthly Earley Sling Meet or by booking a Consultation.
