Babywearing Event

Benz of W@W raised the idea of holding a babywearing meet while attending the March warehouse sale.  Within 1 week, Benz and Charmaine were able to organize a babywearing meet with me, Next9 and Maya wrap - all promoted through Facebook and Twitter.
Benz actually had an ulterior motive in organizing the event - she was going to Australia and wanted to master her Maya wrap and Saya carrier so she or her husband John could babywear Laya throughout their trip.   Since the event was organized in a rush, we held it at a Starbucks in Bonifacio Global City. For a rushed event, we were pleasantly surprised to have about 14 moms attending plus several dads and babies!

We started by presenting the various types of carriers available - between Jen and me, we had amassed several - Ergo, Patapum, pouches, ring slings, hybrid carriers and we didn't even bring our Moby and Sleepy Wraps!  Then we moved on to discussing the carriers we had that were locally available e.g. SaYa Baby Carrier, Blissful Babes Pouch available through my online store, Next9 carriers (ring slings, pouches) through Jen and Maya Wrap through Abbie.

Abbie demonstrated the Maya Wrap while Jen went around helping moms use their Next9 slings (there were about 6 moms with her slings!! - Go Jen!).  I went next, describing the Saya with the demonstrations from Saya users - Charmaine, Benz and Cats.
The babywearing meet was a fun and informal event with moms trying out the various carriers and learning how to properly position their babies.  There have been requests for a second babywearing event so stay tuned for further announcements!

I'm a frustrated babywearer!  I've worn my son a few times but would definitely want to be more consistent about it.  Hope to attend the next event :-)
