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.
