After months of anticipation, International Babywearing Week is here at last! We have an exciting schedule of events across a variety of social media – with dozens of great prizes to give away courtesy of our generous sponsors! Be sure to check whether your local group has any events planned too! You can find a list of Official Celebrating Organizations here.
The International Babywearing Committee has dozens of prizes to give away to lucky participants, including a few special surprises (giveaways are limited to US-based participants due to international sweepstakes laws). To participate, be sure to follow along on Facebook, Twitter (@babywearingweek), Periscope (@babywearingweek), and Instagram (@intlbabywearingweek) and join our Facebook group.
One great way to participate is by posting your photos with the hash tags #WeAreIBW2015 and #IBW2015. We’ll be drawing winners every few hours all day long on Saturday, October 10th from photos posted on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using both hashtags!
We’re very excited to celebrate another fantastic International Babywearing Week! Thanks to everyone who has joined in so far. We look forward to seeing lots of babywearers participating online as well as at events in your local community this week. Happy IBW!!

We have experienced a huge growth from last year to now, and I’m not sure we will be able to fit everyone in our group picture this year!!!” Tricities Babywearing
Struggling to fit everyone in the group picture is definitely an awesome problem to have! You go guys! What does your group have planned?
BWI of Pinellas is a brand new group and has only been meeting for a few months. Do you have any tips for them? If you’re a leader, what do you wish someone had told you when you first started your group? If you’re a member of a group, what does your group do that really helped you succeed at babywearing?
