Babywearing International of Grand Rapids’ monthly meetings are free and open to the public. Come with any questions, concerns, or carriers you already have to get help from an accredited educator! Already a pro? Our group is not just for new, but also experienced wearers. We have a library of carriers for you to try on and find the right fit for your family.
“Babywearing” simply means holding or carrying a baby or young child using a baby carrier. Holding a baby is natural and universal; baby carriers make it easier and more comfortable. Babywearing can help make daily life just a little bit easier. It can lessen a child's crying, improve bonding between a caregiver and child, and even reduce a caregiver's chance of PPD.
We begin around 10:10 am with an introduction to the group and a monthly topic. We then break into small groups to help with carriers and chat! Our library of carriers will be available to try throughout the meeting, with checkouts being disbursed at the end.
All caregivers are welcome, as well as all children. We do suggest you bring a few toys that will keep your little ones (and especially the big ones) entertained. Snacks are allowed for your own children but, due to allergies, we ask that you bring no nuts.
