Mommy Connections UppyOk, Red Deer mamas ~  this is the moment you’ve been waiting for. It’s time to get your name in for your Mommy Connections Uppy!

We have partnered with Uppymama to offer Mommy Connections Red Deer program attendees the chance to purchase their very own Uppymama wrap. Becky has been teaching babywearing to the new and expectant moms in our programs for just over 3 years now, bringing with her a variety of wraps for the moms to try – and every time she comes she gets asked the same question, “How do I get one?”. And up until now, she’s had to honestly answer with, “Well…… you can’t.” And although she really doesn’t say it to be disheartening, it’s the truth – people all over the world are vying to get their hands on an Uppymama wrap for their perfectness – they simply wrap like a dream. Uppymama gets thousands of emails when they have wraps available to purchase – and the lucky 20 or so mamas who get their names drawn feel as though they’ve died and gone to heaven! Although this leads to disappointment for many, now local moms don’t need to feel that sense of discouragement any longer. YOU can now have your own Uppy just by registering for and attending a Mommy Connections Red Deer program, and in the meantime you will also get to connect with other new moms, learn from local experts, and demo the most popular classes for moms and babies in our city. How can it get any better than that?

The exclusive Mommy Connections Uppy is a blend of turquoise, chocolate brown, white and green, as Uppy wrap - turquoise weftdesigned by myself, Becky (Uppymama’s owner) and Nancy (Master Weaver). The colors represent both Mommy Connections and Uppymama’s logos – we think they’re pretty special colors if we do say so ourselves! The first batch of wraps that are now ready for their new homes are cotton – we will be doing linen and wool blends in the future as well, so if you’re hoping for one of those, hold tight – they’re coming! These wraps are absolutely beautiful and oh-so buttery soft! Some of the wraps have a turquoise weft, some have a chocolate weft, and some have both. If you aren’t sure which one you’d like, Becky will be coming to your class to teach about babywearing and will be bringing the wraps with her, so you’ll get to decide which one your fluttering heart desires! Becky will also teach you different ways to carry your baby with your new wrap – believe me when I say that learning to properly wear your baby is truly a life-changing skill.

If you are currently attending any of our Mom to Be, Mom & Baby or Mom & Tot programs and would like to purchase an Uppymama wrap, please email Uppymama (babywearing(at) with your size preference and you will be invoiced ahead of her scheduled visit to your class, at which time she will bring your wrap. If you aren’t sure what size you may need, never fear! Becky can help you figure that out. The Mommy Connections Uppys are priced at $75/m. Please note, your attendance in one of our programs WILL be verified with our registration records before your order is processed!

If you’re a past program attendee or are registered for an upcoming program, don’t stress – we certainly haven’t forgotten about you. Your turn to order your Uppy is coming soon!

If you think this is a pretty sweet deal and would like to get in on this amazing craziness, all you have to do is register for one of our upcoming programs and you’ll be entitled to purchase your very own Uppy, too!

If you have questions, please feel free to contact us.

And remember – Keep Calm and Mommy On. No, wait  —  Keep Calm and CARRY On!

PS – if you didn’t get the blog post title, I’m referring to the Ikea commercial where the lady gets such a smashing good deal she thinks they’ve made a mistake and she’s stealing her purchase – it’s so my sense of humor! Although now that I think on it, I think it’s “Start the car! Start the car!!!!!” Still funny.
