September Meeting and some exciting news!

Our September meeting will be Tuesday 9/2 at 10am at Four Seasons Park in Lombard, at the playground by Main & 16th street.

We will have the library available for trying on different carriers, but will NOT be lending this month.


There is also some exciting news we wanted to let you know....


DuPage Slingers is in the process of becoming affiliated with Babywearing International!
We are anticipating that everything will be formalized in time for the October meeting and International Babywearing Week. There will be some changes to the way we do things, which we will give you more details on as the affiliation process wraps up. (HAH! ok, that joke was not on purpose!) We are very excited about this opportunity and feel that it will help DuPage to foster an even more wonderful and supportive environment for babywearing.

June Meeting

Wow, it's hard to believe it's almost June! Especially when we had snow on May 16th, but that's Chicago for ya'. ; )

I saw a long range forecast that summer in Chicago will actually be cooler than normal. Hmmmm.... that would be nice for baby wearing, but not for swimming. Things change quickly here, though, so just in case, come to the June meeting and ask your questions about how to stay cool with summer baby wearing: Tuesday June 3rd 10am!
