Erin Carter


Erin has been working for Waddle n Swaddle’s Rhinebeck location since they opened almost 7 years ago. She can still remember rocking a baby Griffin on her back while putting furniture together in a race to get the doors open. One of the main reasons she has been with the store for so long is the connection to the community that it has allowed her to form. Giving that new mom a space to nurse for the first time in public, taking a deep breath for the parent who is dealing with a tantrum, and seeing that new baby she once held have another birthday are all some of the things that keep her coming back for more.  Erin actively seeks out and chooses zero-toxin personal care products for her family and herself, it’s a bit of an obsession. Helping people find a great facial cleanser, a deodorant that works really well for them, or a supplement for their child’s cold is a specialty of hers.  You will find many of the things that she loves on Rhinebeck’s shelves. She and her partner have two children, ages 9 and 5 yrs old. She has been a stay at home parent for the past 9 years. Together, they have been through those baby and toddler stages and now are parenting through all the attitude stages! Send help!
