About Us

This is Darach and he was my inspiration for the Papoozle. He was really unwell at birth and had to have life-saving surgery aged only two days old. It was traumatic. When I eventually got him home all I wanted to do was hold him and help him get better. I decided to carry him and bought myself a couple of slings to try. This was all fine for the first few months when he was little, but as he grew, so did the pain in my back.

I didn't want to stop carrying him as by that time I was completely sold on the benefits of baby wearing. So off I went inside my head on a little journey and eventually came up with the concept for the Papoozle. I took it to my team.

Like our washable nappy brand TotsBots (www.totsbots.com), we got the design right first time and the Papoozle was an instant success. It won the coveted Mother & Baby Gold award for Best Baby Carrier in the first year of its launch. We were amazed. The Papoozle has continued to grow from strength to strength and we decided in January 2013, it was time it had a makeover. We gave it some lovely new padding, some new colours, a wider seat and best of all, its very own website.

I hope you enjoy the Papoozle. I have had some of the loveliest moments of my life carrying my little ones. There is nothing nicer than having your sleeping baby next to your heart. Cherish those moments.
