7/10 Monthly Meeting

I (Paula) was unable to attend this last meeting, but one of our leaders, Jillian, summarizes it here, complete with pictures!

This month our meeting was held at Nancy Lewis Park.  Our topic this month was pouch slings.  We also decided to start doing a carry of the month (COTM). Our carry this month is Double Rebozo Shoulder to Shoulder.

Marcia led the discussion on pouch slings.  In addition to a fabulous demonstration on how to do a front and back carry with one, she discussed the pros and cons.  Pouch slings are an easy, inexpensive way to venture into the babywearing world.  They are also very portable, they fold up very small and are great for keeping in the car or diaper bag.  They are also relatively simple to use.  The most frustrating thing about a pouch is that finding the right size.  They are also not very adjustable, although the shoulder can be folded over to tighten the top rail.

The carry of the month, Double Rebozo Shoulder to Shoulder (DRS2S) was very well received.  It is a nice back carry because it can be tied off almost immediately, making Little One more secure while the passes are being completed.  We had several brave mamas willing to give it a try and many have tried it at home too.  We would love to see pictures, please post them to our facebook group. :)
