Snugli® Inventor

Inspired by the fabric baby-carrying slings she had seen mothers use when she was a Peace Corps nurse in West Africa in the 1960s, Ann Moore came home and invented the Snugli® baby carrier.

Moore also created a variation on the Snugli® to carry oxygen canisters. The packs--sold by Air Lift®--make it possible for oxygen-dependent people to carry oxygen comfortably on their backs while maintaining active lives.
