Babywearing is the art of carrying a baby or toddler in a sling. Babywearing has been practiced for centuries around the world. In our current time, babywearing has been slowly becoming a part of mainstream society.
Join us for the October meeting tomorrow morning at 10am in Lombard. See the Meetings tab for more info.
Also, International Baby Wearing Week is starting on October 7th. Join us for a baby wearing playgroup on Thursday October 10th at Hummer Park in Downers Grove. Stop by to play, schmooze, and talk babywearing starting at 10am. We will also be discussing various baby wearing topics throughout the week in our Facebook group.
There's a couple of great new things going on we wanted to let you know about!
We are thrilled to announce thatRuth is stepping up to be a leader! Ruth has a great variety of baby wearing experience and is a wonderful addition to the leadership team.
Also, we have started a Facebook page for the DuPage Slingers! We have no plans to close the Yahoo group, but feel that this will help foster a larger sense of community for our baby wearing community. The group is searchable as DuPage Slingers, but closed, so please request to join! When you join, please read the pinned post and familiarize yourself with the guidelines.
Don't forget the July meeting is coming up, Tuesday July 2nd @ 10am (more info in the meetings tab if you need it), and we'd love to see you there. Baby wearing is a great way for the little ones to see the fireworks safely!
