PaxBaby over the

Happy happy happy #8 to! Many moons ago, PAXbaby started as a wee baby carrier and cloth diapering store in Santa Barbara; little did I know that I would be babywearing here today – 3 babies later and many many many mamas helped along their path to happy babywearing! What a wonderful feeling to know that I and the rest of the PAXmommies have influenced and led the way in the rainbow revolution that is today’s babywearing community! I know you have all heard the story many times before, but when I wanted a rainbow woven wrap for my fourth child, I had to source it used from Canada! The abundance of rainbows now is a blessing and a gift to all who are ISO a beautiful, bright carrier to wear and enjoy for years to come!

Please come celebrate PAXbaby’s EIGHTH birthday with us on September 20! There will be games, prizes, laughter, joy and most of all BABYWEARING! Wear your rainbow bells on your toes and reserve your party ticket now! The theme of #PAXbirthdaybash8 is nothing other than *over the rainbow,* and we will be partying literally from dawn til dusk!
