Ceasing Operations

For the past ten years, Babywearing International has grown alongside the babywearing community. We are grateful for all the support we’ve received over the years. Babywearing has become more mainstream with many “big box” stores selling carriers resulting in more caregivers babywearing. We’ve made great strides towards fulfilling our mission of making babywearing accessible for all caregivers.

As of Aug 31 2018 BWI will be closing its doors. While chapters are no longer affiliated with us many are now their own independent babywearing support groups who are still providing a valuable service to their local communities. Should you need any babywearing help, please contact them directly for more information.

We are working with other nonprofits to find homes for the programs that we have been sponsoring and will provide additional updates as plans are solidified.

Educators, you should be proud of the work you have done to promote babywearing as a universally accepted practice. We hope that you continue to share the education and experience that you have gained through BWI. Thank you for your support of BWI and our mission.

Respectfully,

Babywearing International Board of Directors
