Did you participate in International Babywearing Week (IBW) 2014 with BWI of Kitsap Peninsula? If you missed it, boy did you lose out! All of the activities were a huge success but imagine how amazing they could have been if you were there too. IBW is always the first week of October so mark your calendars and be ready for next year.
We kicked off the week with our North Meeting. At this meeting, we launched a new format. Instead of demoing all of the carriers at the front of the meeting we had stations that people could go to for help in a specific area. At this meeting we had 6 station: Brand new to babywearing, Ring Slings, Mei Tais, Soft-Structured Carriers (SSC), Beginning Wrapping, and Advanced Wrapping. How did you like this new format? Feel free to comment below and provide us with some feedback.
A gigantic THANK YOU to Jessica Baker for making beautiful signs for our stations!
Here are some pictures from the events over the course of the week.
