My name is Andrea. I am a proud mama to a beautiful little girl named Zoe, wife to my wonderful & supportive husband and the owner & founder of Dream Carriers. I started making carriers when I was pregnant with my daughter. I knew I would want to wear her, but I had no idea what kind of carrier I was going to like. So with money being tight, I decided to make my own. Once I started making them, I had requests for carriers from friends and others on the internet. I decided to give it a shot and launched my website in August 2006. It started slow, but once the good word of mouth started, business definitely picked up. I love being a work at home mom(wahm). I find it amazing every day that my getting pregnant with my daughter led me to find my passion in life(besides my daughter). That would be designing, sewing and helping other parents find the babywearing love as I put it. πŸ™‚

After my first real winter of babywearing in Portland, OR, I decided I really wanted a mei tai that had buckles. I Love the feeling of a mei tai, but hate getting my straps dirty in the wet parking lot, or worse, standing in the rain, trying to tie my mei tai with my daughter in it. It was then that I picked up some buckles and webbing and added them to my carrier design. It was nice, but I knew there were other features that I wanted, like leg padding, a contoured design, etc. That is what prompted the redesign. After almost a dozen designs, I came up with the final ‘original’ Dream Carrier buckle tai design. The Original DCBT features a stylish, curved, contoured body along with leg padding for your childs comfort. As well as the option to have a padded waist, which I find very comfortable and supportive with my almost 2yr old. It quickly became my daughter’s favorite carrier! I hope to help you find your Dream Carrier & help you find that babywearing love! πŸ™‚
