International Babywearing Week

Celebrate International Babywearing Week with babywearing groups around the world, October 4-10, 2015! This year’s theme is Embrace Your World.

International Babywearing Week is an annual outreach event sponsored by Babywearing International. It is a week-long opportunity to celebrate, promote, advocate for, and focus media attention on the many benefits of babywearing . We invite non-profit babywearing groups around the world to participate in IBW by registering as Official Celebrating Organizations. These organizations will host online and in-person events throughout the week. Babywearing International will promote IBW through its website, twitter, and Facebook accounts with contests, awards, giveaways, and other interactive events. There will also be a coordinated media outreach campaign to raise awareness about babywearing with the general public.

Non-profit organizations may register as Official Celebrating Organizations here.

International Babywearing Conference

In July 2014, more than 300 babywearing educators, enthusiasts, vendors, and manufacturers gathered in Tempe, AZ for the 2014 International Babywearing Conference.  The highlight of the weekend was an inspirational keynote from Sherry Payne on the topic “Head Wrapping and Babywearing: Using Afrocentric Traditions to Built Health Equity.”  Other events included more than 50 educational seminars, informal stash shares, rollicking parties, babywearing ballet, yoga, a “baby making party” in which participants made DIY demo dolls, and incredible shopping in the vendor hall.
