Babywearing All-star Feature: Babywearing International

Babywearing All-star Feature: Babywearing International
No talk of babywearing advocacy and the people and organizations working hard behind it would be complete without a generous nod to Babywearing International (BWI). This nonprofit organization works hard to organize and publicize babywearing events around the world, empowers lots of local babywearing chapters and its members, offers volunteer babywearing educator certification, hosts annual babywearing awards, and provides online babywearing safety and baby carrier selection information. International Babywearing Week is an annual celebratory and educational event coordinated by BWI, with local events coordinated by local groups of babywearers (not just BWI Chapters). International Babywearing Week grows bigger and bigger each year, and in 2012 falls on the week of October 8. BWI is run by a dedicated board of directors, each a Babywearing All-star in their own right. Thank you for your work and for building such a strong advocacy organization:

This is exactly what I was looking for. It’s light weight, basic, and made of a rain coat type material. I plan to use this in the pool this summer for my 10 month old when juggling my other two.

This is our favorite carrier we’ve used. It’s so much lighter than any other carrier we’ve used and baby girl loves it!

Perfect baby carrier for us. It's lightweight but still supportive. It has a nice, good look to it. It's also practically made and the zipper/pocket storage is great. Also, I can take this anywhere with us because it's compact.

I bought this because I needed a carrier to take my son with me on hikes, it works really well for us. I use it for everything from taking him on errands to doing chores around the house.
