Upcoming September workshop...

We are thrilled to be partnering with Nashville's new birth center, Baby + Company, for a Babywearing 101 workshop on September 16th from 6-8 pm. Babywearing International envisions a world in which babywearing is a natural part of child-rearing. We hope that with this workshop, we can familiarize caregivers with the practice of babywearing, its benefits, and and how to get started.

This workshop will be a comprehensive look at best practices in babywearing. We will be demonstrating newborn carries in soft structured carriers, ring slings, woven wraps, and mei tais. We will talk about the benefits and availability of each carrier at a variety of price points. Additionally, we will be talking about Babywearing International, our fantastic Learning Library, and membership with BWI. After our demonstrations and discussion will hold a Q&A session for you to gain as much information as possible.

If you attend one of our meetings you'll hear us talk about the many benefits that babywearing offers. We do what we do because we love it and because we want every caregiver to have this life changing tool in their parenting toolbox. Our belief statements may help you get to know us before we meet on September 16th.

We believe that...

  • Baby carriers are powerful tools for parents and caregivers, enabling them to hold their babies more comfortably, more securely, and longer than they would otherwise.
  • The practice of using baby carriers, known as babywearing, is beneficial for both children and caregivers. Babywearing fulfills a child’s need to be held, while its utility makes the lives of caregivers easier.
  • Babywearing promotes bonding between children and their caregivers.
  • All types of baby carriers have value, and caregivers have the benefit of a wide range of available options.
  • Baby carriers should be comfortable for both child and caregiver, and can be used for as long as is mutually desired by children and their caregivers.
  • Babywearing is compatible with any parenting style or philosophy.
  • With education and support, children and caregivers can benefit from the ease, comfort and utility of babywearing.
You can learn more about Babywearing International here and Baby + Company here.

This workshop is free and all are welcome so please bring a friend, partner, grandparent- everyone can benefit! You can RSVP through the event on our chatter page or by emailing us at
