2010 International Babywearing Week Celebration

The Lake County Babywearers is pleased to announce its event to help celebrate International Babywearing week. 

 Come celebrate with us

Sunday, October 10 from 12:30 – 2:30 at The Little Gym in Gurnee.   

It will be an afternoon of  learning and fun.  We will be educating the public on safe babywearing, helping moms, dads and caregivers get their little ones into carriers, and trying out different types of carriers.   We will have Little Gym staff running open gymnastics and games in the gymnastics area for all ages, primarily toddler’s and preschoolers.

We will be holding raffles to give away:

– a Sakura Bloom Ring Sling

– an Anaju Bamboo Baby Wrap donated by 3TreeDesign

– a Catbird Pikkolo donated by Catbird

– an Action Baby Carrier donated by Heavenly Hold

– several childrens doll carriers

– and several other items

 Due to having staffed Little Gym associates we would love to have a count of how many will be attending, so please leave a comment and let us know that you are coming and how many you plan on bringing.
This event is made FREE to the public by the Lake County Babyewearers.
Cannot make the event but want a chance to win one of the raffle prizes? Email hyacynthworth {at} yahoo {dot}.
