Babywearing and Travelling, by Olga Nguyen


I am a mother of 3 children ( 2004, 2006, 2010) and I discovered slings shortly after the birth of my oldest. I started out with a stretchy wrap and slowly discovered the huge range of slings that is available online. I am Dutch and have been living in the UK since 2001 with my husband Colin. I live in Swaffham a market town in Norfolk. I also take care of the Trageschule training in Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg.
