Each month I donate a wrap to a babywearing group to add to their lending library. For July I am asking groups to do a project to help me expand the wrapping instructions on my website. One of the prizes for July (Nati Notes linen blend wrap):
To enter your group for a free wrap, I ask that you send me an instructional video that I can brand and post on my website and on YouTube to help moms who are trying to master a carry or technique. Send the videos to firstname.lastname@example.org by the last day of July and put “July Video” in the subject to help me keep track of the emails. Also please include a line in your email giving me permission to add my title and credits and use the video online, regardless of whether your group is chosen to win a wrap. I will credit your babywearing group for the video and the specific babywearer and baby in the video, if you want me to. I won’t be passing it off as me, but I will be marketing it as a video that belongs to the instructional library of Wrap Your Baby, if that makes sense. Let me know if you have any questions.
I will give away one wrap to a group in each category. You can enter one or all of them. You can submit one wrap or multiple wraps to any one category as well. I will not choose the same group for more than one category (because I’d like to help as many different groups as possible) but you may increase your chances of winning one wrap by submitting multiple videos because I will be choosing the one that I find most helpful in each category.
- how-to video for any woven wrap variation that is tied at shoulder (TAS)
- how to nurse in a woven wrap as a busty mama (baby or toddler)
- adjusting a woven wrap to provide head support in a back carry after baby/toddler has fallen asleep
- woven wrap instruction video (any technique) by a dad
The videos can be silent or you can narrate as you go. Just remember that they are supposed to be instructional, so try to make them clear and helpful. I use Windows Live MovieMaker to edit videos, so if you can send it in a format that will work with that program, I will be all the more appreciative.
And the prizes?
- Nati Notes Pink/Black linen blend wrap
- Ellevill Karma Dusty Lavender organic cotton wrap
- Natibaby Plum Pois linen blend wrap
- Ellevill cotton/bamboo Paisley Silver wrap
and as a bonus, I’ll send a gender neutral, used-in-good-condition wrap to one of the dads who make the dad wrapping movies for this project (in addition to a carrier donated to the group that submits it). Because we want to encourage the babywearing gentlemen of this world!
