What a pot of Gold!

The leprechauns were so generous to BWIDC in March!

We'd like to thank Lillebaby for their generous donation of two carriers- an Airflow complete and an All Seasons complete. Here's Kim modeling the Airflow, as you can see, its also a great carrier for older toddlers as well!

The Babywearing International Board of Directors gifted a Wrapsody gauze wrap to our chapter. Gauze is a great lightweight material that is perfect for summer babywearing when the weather is hot and humid. We love how the wrap has two different colored edges (the top and bottom rails) and a contrasting middle section because it is a great way to help new wrappers learn about tightening up the carry one section at a time. Not to mention, it's a beautiful colorway!


This month we also received a donation from Zerberts of a Boba 4G soft structured carrier. The Boba 4G has an awesome feature, a snap in adjustable infant insert that allows the carrier to be used with an infant as small as 7 pounds.  The insert can be easily taken out and the carrier used for a larger child as well. For some people, this could be the only baby carrier they ever need! Scott was very pleased with the Boba for settling a newborn at 1am.

The new Boba 4G and Wrapsody carriers will be available for try ons/rental at the May meeting, the Lillebaby carriers are available now, so come join us for the April meeting on Tuesday the 7th and check them out! (Location and time located in the Meeting tab)
