March Meeting at Cloth Diaper Market

This month's meeting at Cloth Diaper Market was hip and happening! Thanks to all the mommies (and lots of daddies, too!) that came to make this meeting such a success. With such a large turnout, we hope that everyone's questions were answered. Please feel free to post your questions on the Facebook page!

If you were at the meeting, and weren't able to complete the photo release as you checked in, please click here to indicate whether or not you're comfortable having your picture taken and used for our blog. We would love to start showing off more of those sweet action shots of you wearing those babies. Thanks to everyone who has already filled one out.

We hope to see everyone again at the next meeting!

April Meeting Dates

Hey BWI Colorado Springs! April Meeting Dates were just announced, so invite your friends and bring the kids. :)

Monday, March 31st, at 10am there will be a meeting at Cheyenne Mountain Library.

Saturday, April 19th, at 10am come for our second meeting of the month at Cloth Diaper Market.

The lending library will be at BOTH meetings. If you haven't yet paid dues to be a BWI member, you are welcome to play around with the carriers at the meeting. Just a reminder: $30 pays for your dues for one year, allowing you to take home one of any of the carriers in our lending library every month! What a great deal for those of you wanting to try out something new without spending the full sticker price. Click here if you're interested in joining today!

See you all at the next meeting!

March Meeting at the East Library

Thank you to all who came out to the East Library location for one of our March meetings! If you couldn't make it, you were missed! We practiced Charlie's Cross Carry (shown in the video below, as demonstrated by our very own Galen D.). This carry can be done with any woven wrap, size 4 or longer.

March Meeting at the Cloth Diaper Market

Our next March meeting is taking place at Cloth Diaper Market, on Saturday, March 22, at 10am! We can't wait to see you all there. Come learn more about a carrier you're thinking of purchasing, learn how to wrap with a woven, or get advice about how to make babywearing work better for your family! Remember: This is a Saturday meeting for all of you who work during the week. We hope you can make it!

BWI of Colorado Springs!

We're thrilled to announce that our local group is now an official chapter of Babywearing International, Inc. This means great things for the future and support of our group, our lending library, and our mission to promote babywearing within our community!

We encourage everyone that is able to attend meetings regularly and join as a member of BWI of Colorado Springs. The annual dues amount is $30, and you have complete access to our lending library with the option of renting out one carrier each month for the year. These paid dues will help our group expand our lending library! Please consider joining us as a member and be a part of this amazing organization. If you are unable to join as a dues paid member, meetings are still free to attend and the lending library is still available to try out during meetings.

If you haven't yet filled out a photography release, please do so by following the link so that we can continue to use your awesome action shots of you wearing those babies! If you are not comfortable having your picture taken at meetings and used for our purposes, please check the box necessary within the release.

This is a really exciting time for our group! If you have any questions about this news or how you can be a part of things, please see our Facebook page at BWI of Colorado Springs. Thanks everyone!
