Geela Blankie

Since we are limited on the Etsy site as far as pictures and descriptions go, we wanted to use our blog as a place to highlight some of our products and show their uses.

This is the Geela Blankie.   We love it for swaddling.

Modest Mama

By the way, thank you to Amelia Lyon for her photography.  She is a fantastic portrait and wedding photographer.  We love her!

The Modest Mama is exactly what it sounds like--it allows you to be a nursing mama, modestly.   
The top of the Modest Mama bows out so that you can see baby and baby can see you.

The Geela Daiper Clutch

This is the Geela Diaper Clutch.  It provides a portable changing pad wherever you go.  It has pockets for diapers and wipes and folds into a little clutch.  When my baby was a newborn, I kept my diaper clutch next to the bed.  Changings at 3 am were no problem!  The changing pad is a wipeable surface, convenient for protecting surfaces you care about (car seats, couches, rugs, etc.).  

The following photos demonstrate how it works!

Geela Sling instructions

The Geela Sling is a baby/toddler carrier.  Ollie is almost four years old and he can sit in the sling using the hip hold.

Newer babies can be "slung" using the cradle hold.





You can download instructions for wearing the sling
 here.

Geela Wrap Instructions

The Geela Wrap is our variation of the baby wrap. Instead of a long piece of fabric, we looped it to eliminate some of the length and make for easier and more secure wrapping.

This video shows how quickly one can be Geela wrapped (16 seconds Baby People!).

Geela online begins

Geela baby accessories are now available online at www.geela.
etsy.com. Over the last year, four of our friends have had babies. We had a hay day creating baby accessories for each other, playing with cool fabrics and unique, usable products. By the time baby number four arrived, we had an entire collection of fun baby accessories outfitting each mom in their own individual styles. After lots of fabric shopping and many "craft nights,"
our idea for Geela had begun. We selected 6 of our favorite items and produced our first line of one-of-a-kind accessories. We've included our super unique Geela wraps and slings as well as a few other very handy and hip baby necessities.
