Sharing the Adventure with IBW 2014!


International Babywearing Week is just around the corner and this years theme is Sharing the Adventure! DuPage Slingers has always participated in IBW, but this year we will be sharing the adventure of celebrating our first IBW as part of Babywearing International!

Sharing the Adventure

Sharing the adventure of babywearing is the reason DuPage Slingers and other babywearing groups were formed. Babywearing is an adventure we take with our babies and being able to share it with others is special.

To share the adventure with you, we have planned some special events!  Check out the line up:

Sunday Oct 5th
Shout it out Selfie Sunday - Take a selfie and share online with us and your friends! Share your love of babywearing with others. Join us on Facebook to share selfies and discuss what role has the internet and social media played in your babywearing experience.

Monday Oct 6th
Manly Monday - Join us on Facebook to show off the men in your lives that enjoy babywearing. What are their favorite features in a carrier? What do they love about babywearing?

Tuesday Oct 7th
Teaching Tuesday - Come learn about babywearing at our inaugural BWI babywearing meeting! Let us help you with your carrier or teach you about a new one. Meeting will run from 9:30-11. Please be there at the start so you don't miss the intro information. (meeting location and info)

Wednesday Oct 8th
Workout Wednesday - Be active! Go for a walk or vacuum your house! Babywearing is a great way to be active while keeping baby content and cared for.

Thursday Oct 9th
Throwback Thurday - Show us where your babywearing adventure began! Join us on FB to share photos and stories. And don't be shy, we all started somewhere!

Friday Oct 10th
Family & Friends Friday - Has anyone else worn your baby? Dragged any of your friends into the crazy world of babywearing? How have you been influenced by family and friends or were you the one influencing them?

Saturday Oct 11th
Social Saturday - Come be social with us! We want to hang out with all you awesome babywearers! Meet us at the park to play and bring a lunch. We will be meeting from 11am to 2pm at Seven Gables park in Wheaton. Tell us you're coming on FB and make sure you check out the best way to get to the playground since that is where will will meet up. Rain or inclement weather could result in cancellation of this event.
