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 AdventureSharing 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
