Close Enough To Kiss is a semi annual magazine that promotes babywearing through empowering knowledge to help you decide which way you would like to wear your child. We have safety at the heart of everything we write, so you can be confident that all information you get will be written with the safety of your child in mind.

All article are written by those within the babywearing community, from carrier manufacturers to sling libraries, all sharing their part of the industry. We try to be as unbias as we can be, sharing ALL BRANDS and ALL TYPES of slings. Carrying is great in whatever form it happens in and we try to celebrate this as much as we can.
