Hey there! Welcome to Cloth and Carry.
So this is me. Mother of three, 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 carrier and/or cloth nappy 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's 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 MCNs 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.
I have volunteered on the committee for Baby Wearers Western Australia Incorporated since October 2018 and completed a Babywearing School Australia Ambassador course in October 2019. I hope to soon become a fully qualified Baby Wearing Consultant. I am also a member of the Australian Nappy Association and the Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia (WA).
You might find me at baby markets around Perth every few months, so please come by and say hello!
