Babywearing Meet 3 at Gymboree!

September 27, 2011

Babywearing invaded Gymboree last weekend!!

We tried for a controlled environment this time (A belated apology to Starbucks Fort – the organizers are sincere in saying it was so unexpected). As usual, I had so much fun, but I was so tired afterwards! #pagodatragedy

Can I just tell the tale in pictures?

The organizers were myself, Benz of N@w and W@W, Jenny of Mama.Baby.Love, Jen of Next9, Denise of Indigo Baby, Hannah and Pam of Bosom Buddies, Abbie of Maya Wrap and Buding of SaYa Carrier/Blissful Babes.

It was nice to meet people I know only from my blog and through Twitter.

Jen made a presentation on the different kinds of baby carriers from all over the world, and said a little about babywearing safety.

We broke out into groups and people headed over to the corners where you can learn how to wear the different carriers.

A bit of serendipity led Jenny to discover Bailey Wrap on Facebook. We invited them to participate at the last minute. Finally, a local wrap maker!

And of course, group picture!!!

‘Twas so much fun!! It’s so nice to see that there are a lot parents out there willing to embrace babywearing. If you guys missed the meet, don’t worry! We’ll plan another one soon, maybe in an area near you!

Super super thanks to Gymboree Shangri-la for hosting Babywearing Meet 3, giving a 50% discount on 2-hour gymplay to our participants and giving out free class passes for everybody! Thanks Gymbo!

        Is the Bailey Wrap the same as the K’Tan? The one I use?

        The K’Tan is more like the SaYa, but the SaYa doesn’t have that band that connects the loops. The Bailey Wrap is more like the Moby.

    Great job mamas! The Mei Tai is the BEST for Basti’s age. You should try it.

      I really want to try it! You used one right? Do you still have any lying around that’s safe enough to use? Baka you want to sell them? 😉

      • September 28, 2011 5:13 pm

        Sorry, I sold it in a garage sale years ago. You have to get a good one with good straps if not it’s masakit. It feels like a backpack.
