Embracing Our World Together!Every day, we embrace the world we are in. We embrace our babies, our families, our communities, our challenges, our adventures, our friends, and each other. Babywearing groups like DuPage Slingers were started by people embracing their love of babywearing and wanting to share that experience with others. Let us embrace the world together with these fun activities we have planned for Babywearing International Week:
Sunday - October 4th
Let's get wild at Brookfield Zoo! With ALL 4 local northern Illinois babywearing groups participating, we will be taking over the zoo! Enjoy the zoo with friends and family, and then meet up for a babywearing group photo. Find out more about the event on Babywearing International of Chicagoland's Facebook event page.
