Snugglebugs was born from our passion for using slings to carry our own babies . We met when pregnant and quickly realised that we had a lot in common when it came to raising our babies and through the love of babywearing became firm friends. Between us we now have 5 babies from 2-5.5 years old
We use slings every day with our own children & when our youngest girls were babies people were often very surprised to see them asleep on our backs while we worked.
Snugglebugs was born due to our vision to educate parents on how to correctly and comfortably use slings & to spread the love of safe & comfortable babywearing throughout Ireland. When we opened Snugglebugs there were online shops selling slings but Snugglebugs was the first in Ireland to offer a walk in service to try on slings and seek advice on babywearing
