About me


My name is Krisztina, I am the mother of two wonderful children and the creator of Kounotori Babywearing. I am originally from Europe, living with my family in Japan. When my son was 6 months old, I went home for a month. That was the first time I’ve heard about babywearing, but I was too busy with other things, so I was not interested deeply. Later, when I’ve got pregnant with my daughter, I decided to buy my first woven wrap and ring sling. But I couldn’t use either of them, it was so hard to tie and I didn’t know how to get help. So, I purchased a stretchy wrap and practiced a lot to being able to use. My newborn daughter just loved it, she was in the wrap for hours every day. I was able to manage the housework, as well as playing with my son while my daughter was sleeping.

Later, I practiced  a lot with the woven wrap and the ring sling too in order to being able to use them properly. When my daughter was six months old, I was using these carriers daily, and with two kids at home, babywearing was my greatest help.

In 2019, I took the Foundations course at the Center for Babywearing Studies and became a trained babywearing consultant. Later, at the beginning of 2020 I took the Progressions too, for being able to help with more complicated tying methods.

Let me help on your babywearing journey too!
