Ann Moore

MOORE, Ann, American, b-1940. The creator of a baby-carrying device called a Snugli. It was a sling system, a bit like those used by African women to carry babies. It was particularly valuable for women who had 2 babies to contend with. In the 1960s she worked for the Peace Corps in Togo and conceived the idea. By 1969, with help from her mother (Lucy Ackerman), the product was designed and patented. They initially produced the item themselves, but soon were bought out by a major company. Snuglis are very popular, especially for women with twins.
