Baby Wearing International

4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Danbury Library
Lower Level Meeting Room

Monthly chapter meeting. 

Babywearing International, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to promote babywearing as a universally accepted practice, with benefits for both child and caregiver, through education and support. The heart of BWI is our network of local chapters which provide free educational meetings and support within their own communities. All BWI chapters are led by Volunteer Babywearing Educators (VBEs) with extensive knowledge of different types of baby carriers and babywearing safety, and Chapter Support Volunteers (CSVs) that aid the chapter in non-educational tasks. While Babywearing International chapters do not sell or endorse specific brands of baby carriers, most chapters maintain lending libraries so that members and attendees can try a variety of carriers to determine what meets their individual needs. Attendees can bring their own carrier and get help from one of the educators. 

For more information, contact the local chapter at babywearersofswct@gmail.com
