November Meeting

Lauren B. has stepped up as a contributor for our group blog.  We look forward to more of her posts!  She sums up the meeting below.   

November was another successful meeting with plenty of new faces in attendance!  It's so great to see people coming to learn how to make babywearing work for them! This month's carry is the Double Hammock back carry, typically used with a size 5, 6, or 7 woven wrap. Jillian D. demonstrated and a few experienced wrappers helped other members practice with their little ones.  If you were unable to make the meeting (or if you're just looking to get some more practice), check out the video below:

Some members also brought along a few ideas for wearing baby while in the winter weather. Babywearing jackets, fleece ponchos, or even just an oversized coat already in your closet will do the trick! These items can simply be worn over you and baby while using your favorite carrier.
