Thanks and some info!

Hi all,

Thanks for a great meeting today, it was great to see so many new moms/new to babywearing moms! Hope you found some useful information today! Please let us know if there is anything else you need!

As requested, some information.

This is the website/forum we mentioned that is all about babywearing. It is quite big and busy and overwhelming, but is a wealth of babywearing information, and they even have a for sale section to look at carriers if you are planning to buy! You do have to register.

Brands of Woven Wraps: This is not an exhaustive list, but the ones that I know. So you can tell if you are getting a woven wrap, ask for the materials (should be cotton, linen, wool, bamboo - NOT jersey).

Some great videos for Front Wrap Cross Carry (FWCC)- the front carry we showed most of you today. IN this one she holds the baby the whole time, which is another way you can do it!

Nursing in a FWCC video I like! Where she leaves his legs in, I would often leave them out. Its just preference.

And some great ring sling videos. (for a new born) (legs out) (Hip Carry for toddler/older baby)

Any of the ring sling videos by the Zolowear are great!

Happy babywearing!

Next Meeting and Congrats to our Lotto winner!

Hi all,

Our next meeting will be Friday August 12th at our usual location, Life with Baby, from 10-12. Please join us to try out some carriers, and even borrow some. Feel free to bring older children as well, and if you haven't had your baby yet, don't worry. There are lots of borrow! We also will be taking a photo shoot to catalogue our carriers. Come on out and be a model!!!

And big congratulations to our lotto winner, Catherine! She has won a carrier of her choice! We are working on paying off the carriers we have bought for the library as well as funding some much needed additions. So any donations are welcome - either monetary or carriers that you no longer use!
