Gold Sponsor – Connecta Baby Carrier
Connecta is a popular and reputable UK carrier brand. We believe it to be the best UK Baby Carrier if not the best Baby Carrier in the universe!
The Connecta features an integrated sleeping hood that is a seamless addition to the top of the carrier. It also has the clever ability to tuck right away inside the carrier, which also creates a handy pocket for soft small items when the hood is not in use. You simply separate the front and back layers of the carrier and tuck the hood away inside!
Connecta are suitable from 3.5kg up to toddlerhood, with Toddler and Preschool sizes available.

Bronze Sponsor – Baie Slings
Baie Slings is a husband and wife run business born out of the joy of starting a new family. Juliette and Rhys carried their first daughter from newborn and as a result felt the strength of their bond grow even deeper. As they became increasingly convinced of the emotional and practical benefits to using slings, they sought to combine their talents in art, design and sewing to create uniquely beautiful, superior quality woven wraps that support local weavers and the worldwide community of baby sling users.
Juliette and Rhys each create designs drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of their countryside home as well as more playful and whimsical subject matter, everything from pumpkins to penguins. They also invite friends and family as guest artists from time to time. The results are stunning, small-batch wraps that help provide the wearer and baby with the support and comfort essential to the first years of child and parenthood.
