Bambino Baby opened in Petersfield in July 2020 and is set up and run by experienced Babywearing Consultant, Roamy Hunt.
Previously running pop-up shops and sling library sessions at baby groups and other venues – plus offering one-to-one Consultations in her home or at parents’ own homes – she felt a physical shop would be a natural progression.
Roamy has been working with parents and babies in all aspects of babywearing since July 2011. You can read more about her and the shop's journey HERE
Bambino Baby allows people to access expert help and advice more easily – with the option for one-to-one Consultations still available, but also the option to drop in to a physical shop. It also stocks lots of gorgeous baby gifts; including bespoke and ready-made gift boxes, teething toys, blankets, soft toys and nursing necklaces.
Bambino Baby is open Tuesday to Saturday as follows:
The majority of people come in to the during shop opening hours - no appointment needed.
If you'd prefer a home visit - or a private appointment outside of shop hours - one-to-one Babywearing Consultations are also available, full details and booking form are here These generally book about 2-3 weeks in advance and availability is limited.
