Mark Your Calendars! International Babywearing Week!

Coming soon to a babywearing group near you...

International Babywearing Week this year will take place from October 6-12, 2010. This year the theme is "Safe Babywearing: Enjoy the Benefits"

Babywearing International of DC-MD-VA has planned two events to celebrate this year. The first will take place on Thursday, October 7th from 10am to Noon. This will be a carrier safety check. Bring your sling or carrier to At Play Cafe and have it evaluated for safe construction and positioning by the Volunteer Babywearing Educators from BWI of DC-MD-VA.

The second event is for the whole family on Saturday, October 9th at 10am on the National Mall. This will be a Babywearing Walk. Bring the whole family and walk with other parents, children, and babies who are wearing children, dolls, or being worn. Help spread the babywearing love in our Nation's Capital. We will assemble at the Smithsonian Metro at 10am and set off from there.

We also need your help to publicize these events. If you would consider printing one of the flyers and posting at your local Whole Foods, grocery, Starbucks, Panera, kiddie gym, or other location with a community bulletin board. You can also share the events with your friends on Facebook through our Facebook group, you can email your parenting groups, post on any local parenting forums you use, etc. We thank you for your support!

Flyer 1 - clean lines, best choice if only Black & White available
Flyer 2 - full of photos, would look best in color

We look forward to celebrating International Babywearing Week with all of you!
