Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 12.22.41 PMInternational Babywearing Week (October 4-10, 2015) is just a few short weeks away!  Don’t miss out on this opportunity to join babywearing groups and individuals around the world as we come together to celebrate and advocate for the practice of babywearing.

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 2.02.35 PMThe heart of International Babywearing Week is what happens in local communities.  This year’s theme is “Embrace Your World” and instead of releasing specific activities for each day, this year the IBW committee has created a set of mix-and-match suggestions for ways in which groups and individuals can celebrate.  Invite your members to embrace one facet of IBW each day, or choose the ones from the list that are most meaningful to them!  Find more information on how to implement this year’s themes on the IBW website.

Register your group as an Official International Babywearing Week Celebrating Organization by filling out this form and get busy planning!  All non-profit and educational groups that promote and celebrate babywearing may register as Celebrating Organizations and a full list for 2015 will be released during IBW.

Join in the festivities online by participating in our International Babywearing Week Facebook Group, liking our Facebook page, following IBW on Twitter (@babywearingweek), Instagram (@intlbabywearingweek), Periscope (@babywearingweek) and using the hashtag #IBW2015.  We’ll have fun activities (including daily carrier giveaways) throughout the week, beginning with a Twitter party on Sunday October 4th!
