FIRM HAS BABY SHOW ALL WRAPPED UP


A highly respected baby sling company had an incredibly successful time exhibiting at The Baby Show at NEC Birmingham in May. Northampton-based Amawrap was launched by Shabs Kwofie


following the birth of her first child. For the duration of the three-day show – which is recognised as the


UK’s largest event for parents-to-be, new parents, grandparents, babies and toddlers – the firm was inundated with queries from visitors. Shabs said: “The show was very busy. Every day for 10 hours straight


we were busy talking to visitors and demonstrating our baby slings. “For us this is about more than just selling, it is about keeping baby


comforted and safe and enabling parents to get on with all the other things they need to do each day. A lot of visitors were very surprised by the scientific research we shared with them about the benefits of using a wrap.”
