In addition to the board election, we asked several questions regarding what you’d like discussed and taught at future meetings. There is a definite curiosity in learning about a large variety of baby carriers at the different meetings, specifically soft-structured carriers (think Ergobaby carriers) & ring slings. People are also interested in deeper discussions regarding “safe” babywearing tips. Toddlerwearing is also a common interest in the BWI of HR group, along with learning what carries, carriers, & wrap fabric blends are best for different ages and sizes of babies and toddlers.

Y’all gave us a LOT of feedback regarding the specific needs of our local group and we truly appreciate it.
