I came across this picture while cruising a great FB page:

The picture is cringe-worthy, but a great illustration as to why properly structured carriers are better for the wee one who is going for a ride. The SSC pictured is an Ergo, but could easily be replaced with a Beco, a Manduca, or a NMMT/BT. 

Happy Babywearing! C :o)

Social gathering this week?

Are you feeling the mid-winter blues? Need a reason to get out of the house? I may have the solution (for this week, anyway).

We are thinking of a social gathering this week! How does Friday at 1:30 at the Central Library, in the children's section sound? Feel free to leave your comments below, or pop over to our Facebook page (search "London Babywearers and FSOT) to share your thoughts!

Also, a change in our meeting times: we will now be meeting the second Friday of each month from 9:30am until 11:30am, to help work around a scheduling conflict at the (re)birth centre. Many thanks to Jodi and her team for generously allowing us to continue to use their beautiful space each month.
Happy Babywearing!

Happy New Year!

Just a quick post this time, to update you on the meeting this month.

We will be meeting at the rebirth wellness centre (formerly Life With Baby) on Friday, January 13th from 10am til noon. The address is 256 Central Ave., London. There is lots of metered parking on Central Ave., and free parking on the smaller side streets if you're up for a walk. Feel free to bring your own wrap or carrier for some help, or browse through our large lending library and try something new! Items from the lending library are available to borrow, just ask!

Also, a question for our readers: would there be any interest in a social gathering in between the monthly meetings? I would be willing to host a group at my house if there was interest. Please post your thoughts in comments, or on our FB page - search "London ON Babywearers and FSOT" to find us. This is also where you can post your carriers for sale, or search for a new pretty for your collection. Thanks in advance!

Looking forward to seeing you next Friday. Happy babywearing!
