Meet Alena, our go-to girl for all things DIY Babywearing (Do-it-yourself)!
Name: Alena Sutherland
Ages of Kids: 3 and 1
Where are you from originally?: Sioux Falls, SD
How long have you been babywearing?: I've been babywearing since my oldest was 2 weeks old.
How long have you been a Volunteer Babywearing Educator?: I've been "training" since that first meeting in August or September. I've been DIY-ing since just before my son's first birthday.
What's your favorite type of carrier or go-to carry?: I flip flop between a Mei Tai and ling size 4 or 5 woven wrap. Double Hammock with a Candy Cane Chest Belt (DH CCCB) is the carry I always do. Seriously, always.
What BWing obstacle/challenge/goal would you like to master next?: My next goal is to weave my own wrap. Or weave the most marshmallowy rainbow fabric you've ever touched and covert it to a Mei Tai.
What hobbies do you enjoy when you're not wearing?: Lots of crafty things: sewing, crocheting, paper quilling.
What are your future goals?: Make sure my kiddos grow up into good people and figure out what I want to be when I grow up.
