Threaded Together - International Babywearing Week: October 2, 2017 - October 8, 2017

Every year there is this thing called International Babywearing Week. The theme this year is "Threaded Together" and it's so perfect for those of us who choose to carry our babies in material that is woven together with love and kindness. Material that not only helps us to hold our most precious cargo but to also bring us together as a community of babywearers to be that village of caregivers to lift up and guide each other through this thing we call parenting. Everyone is welcome to attend the events from the youngest family member to the oldest. You do not need to have a carrier or know anything about them (but you should probably at least be welcoming to the idea ;-).  I guess you want to know when and where?

You are invited to celebrate International Babywearing Week October 2, 2017 - October 8, 2017! All of the Metro Detroit Babywearing groups come together during this week of fun and friendship to plan and host events all over the city.
