Babywearing Goes Boom!

July 3, 2011

What used to be a casual get-together over coffee to talk slings, SaYas and pouches exploded into a full-blown meet yesterday! Babywearers, experts and newbies alike, gathered at Starbucks MC Home Depot at Bonifacio Global City and the second floor was OWNED. Take a look at these pics!

It was so nice to see lots of mommies (and daddies!) interested in babywearing. The organizers (headed by Benz Co-Rana) tried very very hard to divide the groups into ring slings, pouches and the SaYa, but in the end, we just went around and helped out whoever needed any assistance. It was an unprecedented turnout, and can only mean we will see more babywearing events in the future!

Onsite, we had Denise of Indigo Baby, Jen of Next9, Jenny of Mama.Baby.Love, Abbie Yabot, Mamaway and Buding of SaYa! Other moms helped out too. I was all over the place helping the organizers with SaYa, sling and pouch tutorials (and chit-chat on the side).

One of the moms getting some SaYa help from Cats of Kraze Kitch Bakeshop and from SaYa creator herself, Buding Aquino-Dee!

I really wish I had taken more pics and met more mommies, but it was mayhem (in a good way), plus Basti was in a foul mood.

I had to hoist him on my back to calm him down. Photo courtesy of Martine de Luna.

It was so much fun and I can’t wait till the next one! Babywearing is alive and thriving in the metro, woohoo!!!

      Haha! Pero talaga I’ve been using “Mommy” because of Gymboree. We call our clients “mommy” kasi “ma’m” is so SM Department Store. LOL.

      If you can still take the weight, why not? Does your son still like being carried?

    There were so many people! I did learn about two kinds of baby slings but many moms were using the SaYa, I think. But I still don’t know which to get. Hehe!

      It’s really just preference. I use all three! 😀 Choose the one that you’re most comfortable with. 🙂

    Hi Elai! Can you keep us posted with events like this? My friend will be due in less than three months from now and i really would like her to encourage baby wearing. I bought a ring sling when my baby was only 6mos-old but we only used it for i guess 3-4 times since: 1) I only learned to use it properly when he was turning 1 already *sad* ; and 2) he really doesn’t want to be carried anymore..making me a not so good example. Thanks you very much!
