Info and Events

Our group is a nonprofit, volunteer organization dedicated to helping parents and caregivers learn the art of babywearing. We say art because babywearing really is a skill that is fine tuned over time. While teaching parents and caregivers about wearing their babies, we emphasize safety and comfort. The results of safely and comfortably wearing baby include increased bonding for both wearer and baby, confidence in parenting and decreased crying time for baby. We also love babywearing because it allows the wearer to engage in everyday activities while keeping baby close.

At a meeting or special event you can
• Learn the benefits of babywearing
• Get tips on safely wearing your baby
• Try different baby carriers
• Practice and learn different carrying positions
• Help others master babywearing
• Make new friends
