Monthly Babywearing Group Giveaway

11th August, 2012 / Wrap Your Baby Business / 5 Comments

Learning to use woven wraps at a babywearing group meeting.

edited to add: the details of August’s giveaway are below, but remember I’m giving one wrap away every month so be sure to subscribe to the blog, my newsletter, or like my Facebook page to get the news on how to enter each month’s giveaway.  Also, I love you guys, one and all!

Babywearing Groups are so important because they can spread the babywearing bug throughout their communities like the internet never will.  The local groups are the village that new parents are looking for.  Not just an article or a blog post, but people with smiles and babies and toddlers and busy lives, wrapping their children up right in front of you, showing you what’s easy–or hard–about it, talking about how it has affected their family.  They can show you how to do it, let you try it with your baby, show you if there is something you could change to make it safer or more comfortable, give you tips specific to you.

I will sheepishly admit that I think babywearing can change the world.  It may not be THE SOLUTION, but it does start new families out staying close, meeting baby’s AND parents’ biological needs, listening and communicating closely, and sharing lives together.  It is the beginning of raising human beings whose lives are imbued with love.  And that can change the world.

I love spreading babywearing love across the internet and I value the internet as a tool that can spread wonderful ideas in a way that couldn’t happen before.  But once someone finds out about it, or even buys a wrap from me, I want them to find their village.  So I am compiling a list of local groups.  It is far from complete.  I could probably have a fulltime job just maintaining and developing this list.  Since I am wealthy in love, health, and happiness, but not so much in money, I have to ask others to please email me any information you have about a local group so I can make this list as helpful as possible: LOCAL BABYWEARING GROUPS

And, in order to make the groups themselves as helpful as possible, as valuable as they can be to families in their communities, I would like to give away some wraps for lending libraries.  Again, referencing my financial limitations, I can’t give them to everyone.  But I can do one wrap a month.  So, beginning today, the middle of August, I will post a monthly giveaway.  This month I’m asking for pictures from your babywearing group. A group shot, or an action shot of one particular baby getting wrapped up, whatever you’d like.  I would love to get a shot for each state in the US to put on the page of groups for that state.  And one, I will pick to receive a wrap.

Email pictures to me at  Send them by the last day of August 2012. Include a short note that I am allowed to use the pictures on my website or in other promotion. I may use them in other ways than the babywearing lists, such as in my newsletters, or even on a product page if it happens to be a nice shot of a wrap I sell.  I plan to use several pictures, not just the one chosen to win.  The winning group is chosen by me and I get to pick however I want 🙂

If you are in an area that doesn’t have a group, and you want to form one, I am so excited and appreciative!  Contact me and I may be able to help get a lending library going.  I can’t say I’ll give a wrap to every new group because I don’t know how often I’ll be contacted.  Maybe I’ll keep a waiting list and give them out as often as I can.  Or I may be able to refer you to someone who can help, or ask for donations on my facebook page.  I’d like to help however I can!  And maybe you’ll find this post helpful for getting started.
