Rockin' Baby has a mission, mother to mother: For every sling purchased, the company will donate a new sling to a mother in need and educate her on its importance. This one-for-one approach is owner Kathryn Wiley's passion. With five kids of her own, she knows just how important the bond between parent and child is—and how holding, nursing and carrying an infant can truly strengthen that bond.

When Kathryn bought Rockin' Baby in 2011, she had big plans. Inspired by other companies that give back to the global community and dedicated to showing her children that a for-profit business can make a difference, she modeled Rockin' Baby on a one-for-one approach but tweaked it to focus on moms.
Kathryn set out armed with the knowledge that Haiti has the highest infant mortality rate in the Western Hemisphere. With every purchase of a Rockin' Baby sling, one will be given to a mother and her infant in Haiti (and eventually beyond!). The Rockin' Baby team fits each mom individually and teaches her how to wear the sling to make it easier to nurture, breastfeed and bond.close
