April was a fun month for us here at Babywearing International of Hampton Roads!

Our monthly Babywearing International of Hampton Roads Virginia Beach meeting was held on April 4, 2015. We had a wonderful attendance of 89 attendees. We welcomed 12 first time attendees and 4 new BWI members this month. This month we introduced two new carriers for lending Chimperaroo Mei Tai and LilleBaby Complete Airflow. Thank you to everyone who came out, your continued support is what helps us grow and keep our lending libraries fresh! See you next month. ~ VBE Jacquie B

Our Peninsula meeting was held at The Hampton Teen Center. Spring Break for local schools meant we had a quieter than usual meeting as many families were on vacation. We had 37 people attend in April! Members arrived in a steady stream throughout the meeting. This worked out well because we had several VBEs who were ill. This intimate meeting size allowed many people to mingle and make new friends. This meeting added 5 new members to our chapter. We launched our 31 gifts fundraiser that is running hrough May 9. Joe and Concha M. were amazing volunteers and we thank you so much for helping! Our next meeting is on May 9 so we hope to see you there! ~Peninsula Area Rep Anne D

On the 25th, we had a special Babywearing 101 meeting in Smithfield! This was a fun way to teach the basics of babywearing. It was a small group, but everyone got the help they needed and we had a great time bonding! Hopefully we will be able to visit Smithfield again for another 101 meeting. ~VBE Brittany MΒ
