What a fun week for Babywearing International of Kitsap Peninsula! We had so many exciting events to show off our love of babywearing, spread the joy of keeping our babies close and meet some new babywearing caregivers from our community. If you missed out on our events this year, don’t worry…we plan to have an even better International Babywearing Week next year!

Here is how we Embraced Our World:
#EmbraceYourWild – We started the week with some exotic animals at the Point Defiance Zoo. All the children got great views of the animals from all types of different carriers. We had an excellent time checking out the aquarium and feeding the birds.
#EmbraceYourLove – We showed a crowd of people our love of babywearing by performing a flash mob dance at the Bremerton Ferry Terminal. We timed it perfectly just as a crowd was stepping off the ferry. A big thanks to everyone who came out to dance as well as everyone who came out to support and cheer us on!
Check out our moves here:
#EmbraceYourSelf – We struck a pose and had some amazing Babywearing Photos taken by Ashley Renee Photography (Beautiful Beginnings). We showed off our favorite carriers and got to capture these sweet moments forever.
#EmbraceYourFamily – Several of us got together and spent some fun family time bowling! It was so nice to meet your families as well as share the bummers over gutter balls and high fives for every strike.
#EmbraceYourCommunity – It felt great to get out to our local parks and help clean them up. We chatted away while the garbage bags filled up. Thanks so much to everyone who came out and helped do their part to keep our parks garbage free.
#EmbraceYourOptions – We talked about and shared all the different amazing options we have for babywearing. And it was great seeing some caregivers try out new options they hadn’t worn before.
#EmbraceYourStyle – Saturday was such a busy day but it was packed full with a lot of great times! At our babywearing meeting we didn’t get around to the fashion show we planned, but a lot of babywearers came out and they were able to try on new carriers we added to our library and got some help learning new ways to wear their babes.
The fun didn’t stop there with the meeting, afterwards the rest of the day was spent inside The Clinic Tattoo where Babywearing Flash Tattoos were being offered. Erin and TJ were busting out some great designs while we all hung out and spent time together. It was great just talking to everyone and sharing in the excitement of new ink. Plus I got to wear all the babies!
#EmbraceYourAdventure – Our last event was an adventure filled day at Hunter Farms. There were hay rides, corn mazes and pumpkins to spare! It was the perfect way to end our International Babywearing Week.
And we can’t forget the week long picture Scavenger Hunt! Check out some of the participating pictures:
I am so thankful for everyone who came out and participated in our events. The week was made so much more special because of our amazing members. We all look forward to an even bigger and better International Babywearing Week next year!
