Close Enough to Kiss is the UK’s first babywearing magazine, crammed full of everything you want to know about slings. Babywearing is very important to us and by helping libraries purchase more carriers, we can spread the word of how great babywearing is. Our magazine will be a quarterly publication and will be sold in sling libraries as well as online. We are UK babywearing community based so the articles you read will have been written by those who babywear on a daily basis, we involve the community as much as we can and strive for a magazine that is not only easy to read but will appeal to everyone from every walk of life, in the hope we can enable more families to babywear.
Babywearing is a growing trend, even celebrities are becoming wise to the positive impact it can have on their lives. Close enough To Kiss Magazine was created along side Sling Libraries within the UK, to bring together their collective knowledge and experience, with news and reviews on everything babywearing.
Babywearing has gained popularity in recent years and as the ability to purchase carriers has increased, so has the thirst for knowledge by mothers.
Across the UK every month a new sling library is started and currently stands at a little under 100 active libraries, this isn’t including the growing number of sling meets, where mother’s interested in babywearing gather for peer to peer support from like minded women. Close Enough To Kiss has been produced for mothers interested in reading about babywearing, to help them integrate it into their daily lives, giving stories of other baby wearers, reviews, safety advice as well as news from across the UK sling libraries community. Helping get mothers back to the roots of having their baby Close enough to Kiss!
