Coming Soon! International Babywearing Conference 2012

So, if you've been to a meeting recently, you've probably heard talk about this summer's International Babywearing Conference.  Our group is hosting June 29-July2nd, 2012 in Washington, DC!  The conference is a chance to meet babywearers from around the world and share tips, techniques, teaching methods, and just socialize.  Many creators of your favorite carriers attend, so it is a chance to learn directly from the creators.  You can read about the last conference in these posts. 

We've planned an exciting conference with a little bit for everyone.  Fri-Mon there will be classes to appeal to every level of babywearer, from the newest beginner to the seasoned educator.  There will also be non-babywearing classes on a variety of topics to appeal to parents.  On Saturday, there will be a public day with a Green Baby Expo vending hall, and general basics classes for those with only a casual interest who aren't up for committing to a multi-day conference.  This will be a great chance to see a variety of carriers in person, try some out, and purchase directly from the manufacturer! And as a special treat, Rachel Coleman from Signing Time will be our keynote speaker on Sunday!

This past weekend, we held a photo shoot downtown with Aimee Buxton Photography to gear up for the conference.  If you missed the shoot this weekend and still would like to participate, we will be having a second session with Melody Yazdani Photography on April 17th.  Email us for more details, or watch us on Facebook.  While we wait for the photos from Aimee Buxton to be edited, Here are some unprofessional but still great shots caught by Joy from BWI of Delmarva who came to join us for photos.  It was a great preview of what it will be like to spend time with so many babywearers in our Nation's Capital!
Being models is tough work

A few families grabbed a chance for some fun, too!

So many babywearing parents!
The kids got in the act too!
