Is everybody ready?! October 5th kicks off International Babywearing Week! International Babywearing Week (IBW) is an annual event sponsored by Babywearing International. It is a week-long opportunity to celebrate, promote, advocate for, and focus media attention on the many benefits of babywearing!
The theme this year is "Best Seat in the House," which babywearing certainly gives your little (and not so little) ones. When a child has a nice, comfy seat in any kind of carrier, they are comfortable, close to a loved one, and able to see and participate in ways that are not possible without babywearing. Let's help Babywearing International spread the word about the 'best seat in the house' and have some fun while we are at it!
Here with Babywearing International of Grand Rapids we have a number of online and in-person events! With both indoor and outdoor options, along with active and a bit more relaxing events, there is something for everyone. BONUS: Most of our events are FREE and a few even offer chances for FABULOUS PRIZES! Check out our Facebook fan page or website for more information on specific events. We hope to see you at an event (or all of them)!
Participate online throughout the week in our Facebook group's photo scavenger hunt. Watch for the list to be posted on the 5th and get snapping for a chance at a prize and a lot of fun :)
We can't wait to celebrate with all of you. The fun kicks off this Wednesday, October 5th at 5:30 at a park near you!
