International Babywearing Week is approaching fast! How are you going to celebrate?
This time last year (for IBW 2013), the blog was BRAND NEW, as were the girls. And we were busy moving into and unpacking our new house. I got to wear once on the VERY LAST DAY and for only a quick stroll through our new neighborhood.
THIS YEAR, we have over a year of babywearing experience under our belt, a YouTube channel with a steadily growing library of wrapping tutorials (and more), and have "been there, done that" with tips and tricks to share. Additionally, this year we have managed to find some amazing SPONSORS AND PARTNERS to help us celebrate the fun!
My GOAL for IBW 2014 is to spread the babywearing love! When I first began exploring my interest in BW, I was SO intimidated by all the lingo, the different types of carriers/wraps, the PRICE of said carriers and wraps, the millions of different ways to wrap, and how I seemed to be the only person on the face of the earth to not be able to identify carries in pictures on the spot. I actually cried a few times and gave up! (Luckily I was still pregnant and had time to change my mind.) With the help of a friend, I quickly learned that it's NOT as scary as it seems.
Frustrating at first? SURE. Impossible? Not in a million years!
What started as a small "NBD" idea has now flourished into a HUGE online celebration for Babywearing, and I hope that you and your babywearing friends (and/or groups) will join me! Right now my nights are long, and the days start early but I KNOW it is going to be SO WORTH IT!!!!! Raising babywearing awareness the main name of the game! (Well that and having fun!!!) By the end of the week, you have been exposed to SO MANY different options for wearing your babies, and who knows...... you may even get a cool souvenir :D
