It’s time to take out those carriers, wraps, ring slings and wear your baby! It’s International Babywearing Week from October 5 – 11th. It’s a time of celebration, education and making new friends.
Search Facebook or the official site, for a list of local events you can attend. There are quite a few events, get togethers, flash mobs, and giveaways!
Also make sure that on Facebook you follow some of your favorite Babywearing companies! They may be hosting various giveaways during the week too! Some of our favs are Ergo, Beco, Oscha slings, Two Mammas Designs – for custom work, my current favorite – Kinder Packs and of course there are many more.
I am bummed because of surgery I still can’t wear pumpkin, but love to see all this positivity around babywearing! It’s important we normalize it and that people find out what their options are because every carrier is different and babies don’t always like the same one!
