So this is me. Mother of four, medical sonographer, and general baby addict.
Hi! I am Alyce (pronounced like Aleese).
I have owned an online baby boutique business since March 2016 (rebranded from Baby Mumma Perth to Cloth and Carry in December 2019) and love to help families find the right baby carriers and/or cloth nappies for their little people.
I initially got into babywearing because it offered unlimited cuddles and easy access to beautiful baby smells. I started out with a basic soft structured carrier, borrowed a ring sling from a friend, then fell down the rabbit hole and bought a woven wrap and a meh dai. I've since owned more carriers than I care to admit, but I still reach for my ring slings the most.
The slippery slide into cloth nappies quickly followed behind (wink!) along with a shift to an increasingly more environmentally-friendly lifestyle. It took a little longer to get my husband Travis onboard, but he will now happily spruik the ease and environmental benefits of using modern cloth nappies to anyone who will listen.
DID YOU KNOW?
I volunteered on the committee for Baby Wearers Western Australia Incorporated from October 2018 to October 2021 and continue to serve as a volunteer babywearing peer educator at their regular babywearing meets around Perth.
I completed a Babywearing School Australia Ambassador course in October 2019, followed by their Babywearing Consultant Basic Course in December 2020. I also completed Babywearing Intensive Training with Brooke Maree in July 2020, and have been a Certified Babywearing Consultant with the Australian Babywearing Association since their inception in 2021.
I am an Industry Member of the Australian Nappy Association and Professional Member of the Australian Babywearing Association.
You might find me at baby markets around Perth every few months, so please come by and say hello!
