Mother walking with nesting days carrie

Baby + Baby Grand

Meet a happy, San Francisco, mother who is putting her Nesting Days Newborn Carrier to good use this holiday season! Her name is Anna Smirny, and I was able to hand-deliver her Nesting Days Newborn Carrier to her this week, just in time for Christmas. When I arrived at her home in Potrero Hill we went straight to the bedroom where five-day old, baby Coral, was sleeping, and I helped Anna slip into her carrier:

  • Step in, pull the tummy support up to bra line, smooth the skirt over hips. Anna liked the feeling of the gentle compression over her postpartum figure.
  • Raised left shoulder wing, put baby in burp position on shoulder, lower baby in.
 Easy! Baby Coral never even woke up!
  • Raised right shoulder wing, tie snuggly over baby’s back, adjust shoulder rings. Anna did a little twirl and was amazed at how secure Coral felt nested against her!
  • (Go to for more detailed instructions. New video coming soon.)

Happily ‘nested,' we joined the rest of the family in the living room where three-year old, Arden, was playing catch with his Dad, Rex, and parents from Australia!

In the middle of the room was a gleaming Baby Grand Piano. Anna quietly sat down at the keyboard with Coral in the Nesting Days Newborn Carrier. As she began to play the room filled with the strains of a Chopin Waltz. Baby Coral never stirred. She had heard her mother play this melody, and many other beautiful compositions before she was born. Anna is an accomplished, classical pianist!

"It feels so good to play. I think I can resume teaching piano lessons sooner than I expected”, she said, with her eyes brimming with happy tears. Arden sensed his mother’s emotions and needed hug. Anna cuddled her three-year old with her newborn still asleep in the Nesting Days Newborn Carrier and I snapped a parting picture.

I left more committed than ever to making sure more moms and babies can benefit from having a Nesting Days Newborn Carrier! Anna emailed me today that she is able to breastfeed in it!

If you happen to live in San Francisco or the Bay Area, please contact me by email or by phone 415-906-4047, and I’ll be happy to give you the same personalized attention I gave Anna. I love seeing my invention at work!
