Mother Essentials: Tayler Golden of WildBird
Written by Katie Hintz-Zambrano
California-based mother Tayler Golden doesn’t just know a thing or two about the essentials a mother needs—she’s actually created a product so many fellow mamas now rely on. Her brand WildBird is known for its versatile and easy-to-wear linen ring slings that allow parents to keep their babies and toddlers snuggled close all day long. Beyond the baby slings themselves, the mother of three kiddos (Remy, 6, Sage, 4, and Sunny, 14 months) is all about expanding the community of parents and caregivers who love WildBird, as well as her network of at-home seamstresses (and fellow mothers!) who lovingly create each carrier. Below, the multi-tasking mama fills us in on her top 20 Mother Essentials of the moment—slings, surfboards, workout clothes (that may or may not get worked out in), and more!
