Babywearing is so vital to both mom and baby. Check out the cuteness.
FATS Mama Circle will be all about Babywearing this Friday Oct 2, 10-12 in Phx and Tues Oct 6, 12-2 in Gilbert!
In honor of International Babywearing Week I want to give a shout out to Babywearing International of Phoenix!
Here is an excerpt from their Facebook page. Go like them today!
We are an affiliate chapter of Babywearing International (http://babywearinginternational.org/), a non-profit organization devoted to babywearing advocacy and education. Our Mission is to promote babywearing safety and education in our communities.
Our meetings are led by Volunteer Babywearing Educators (VBEs) – experienced babywearers who have been accredited by Babywearing International. They also serve as admins for this group.
Our VBEs are:
Dara Salzano DaCunha
Tanya C Higgins
Tiffany Deacon Husar
We currently have 5 meetings a month, each in a different part of the valley. We occasionally offer social or play date events as well. All of our upcoming events and meetings are now posted on our Facebook Page, https://www.facebook.com/BWIPhoenix, under the events tab or on our website here. Please subscribe to receive notifications when new events and meetings are created, and join those you wish to attend to stay up to date on all those details! You can find a full list of our group rules and guidelines here: https://www.facebook.com/notes/babywearing-international-of-phoenix/bwip-rules-and-guidelines/841765719179731.

Our meetings are free to attend and open to all! We also offer memberships in our group for $30 per year, tax deductible. Membership supports our group’s advocacy (education and outreach) work, supports the admin costs such as for business cards that our attendees can use to hand out, and allows us to add new carriers to our library! Membership also has some great benefits, such as being able to borrow any carrier in our library f
or up to a month at a time. This is a great way to ‘try before you buy’. We currently have almost 200 carriers and accessories in our library!!

This group is to chat and discuss all things babywearing. Post your victories and your challenges. Ask your carrier questions. Buy, sell, and trade your lovelies with other local wearers. And above all, post with kindness and consideration. Every moment can be a positive one. Even in the challenges
and the difficult topics, there is room to grow and learn.
