Austin Babywearing works to make a positive difference in the lives of children and their caregivers by sharing the practice of babywearing. Our meetings provide attendees the opportunity to try many carriers, receive expert instruction, and get connected with other caregivers in our supportive and inclusive community.


Austin Babywearing

As you may know, the national organization Babywearing International is planning on filing bankruptcy at the end of August. Our group is working on restructuring as Austin Babywearing so we can continue to help people with babywearing here in Austin.

Community Survey

We are looking at the silver lining–this is a chance for us to build into our structure goals that better serve OUR community. So we want to hear from you! By filling in this survey, you can share input on how to make our group even better. As a thank you for participating in our survey, by providing your name and email at the end of the survey, you will be entered to win your choice of a carrier from a list of carriers provided.

The survey will be open from now through September 5, 2018.

Thank you for your support of Austin Babywearing!

International Babywearing Week 2018

This year, International Babywearing Week (IBW) is October 1-7, 2018. IBW is a week-long opportunity to celebrate, promote, advocate for, and focus media attention on the many benefits of babywearing. This year is special to our Austin community as we are not only celebrating all things babywearing, but also the rebranding of our local organization to Austin Babywearing! Join us at one of the many events throughout the week or during one of our online events as we come together as a community to support one another through babywearing. See our special event page, International Babywearing Week 2018 for everything you need to know about IBW 2018!
