Happy 2 Year Blogiversary!!

It was this week two years ago that I thought (after our epic battle with the Corn Ninjas) that somewhere, we should preserve this level of cockamamie to be re-lived by the internets forever.  To be honest when the then President of BWI Austin (Heather) gave me a log-in for the website, I’m not sure either of us […]

Babywearing Cross Training

I’ll admit that when Lori and Katie told me that this month we were doing cross training, I said, “Nope.”  I, in case you didn’t know, have a true hatred for sweating and working out, but mostly sweating and I try to experience everything if we are going to write it as a group post. […]

This weekend, we’re honored to host some of the foremost leaders in our industry (really, I previewed them here) for our Texas Babywearing Leaders Retreat.  A LOT of time and energy has gone into this weekend so, of course, I decided to corner the lady who made this idea a reality, Lori Post, with some of […]

MMM — Lori, VP of Education

Originally published December 9, 2013, this is one of my favorite MMMs, but Lori, that over-achiever, has now expanded her role in the organization to include some work at the National level and organizing our Texas Babywearing Leaders Retreat.  So, I’ve asked Lori to come back and allow me to share her original MMM and […]

Water Wearing

The VERY FIRST carrier I borrowed from the lending library was a water wrap and I proudly wore my weeks-old baby over my postpartum belly in a centered Poppins!  I was desperate to keep things as normal as possible for my four year-old who suddenly wasn’t the only child anymore and “normal” meant being at […]

Warm Weather Wearing

Baby it’s… HOT outside! In my hometown, it snowed less than two weeks ago. Here in beautiful central Texas, temperatures are already reaching into the 90s and it is barely May! Each year at this time, we start to get a lot of questions about babywearing in the heat. Keep in mind that when you […]

Toddlerwearing

So… you’ve taken our scientific test and found out that the baby you are wearing is actually… a toddler.  The first step is admitting you are wearing a toddler. It’s a big deal.  Congratulate yourself.  BUT… don’t pack up the babywearing just yet! Lori, our VP of Education is here to teach us the toddler-wearing […]

2014 — Year in Review

It has been a tremendous year.  As an organization, we have made pivotal change and had immense growth. So, we’d like to take a moment and give our members this “year in review,”  not only because we want to toot our own horns (toot toot, yall), but because there is a tremendous amount of work […]

What the Who is a Chimparoo?

Lori is a brilliant mind.  Not only is she our VP of education and can answer almost any weird babywearing question I’ve thrown at her (Is there such thing as a quarter buckle?  Can I nurse from a back carry?  Do all pods have fringe?), but she is a certifiable EXPERT when it comes to the […]

Breastfeeding While Babywearing

Nursing in a carrier is hard, y’all.  It is NOT one of those things that came natural to me.  Until recently it was easier for my Little Bit to feed me in a carrier than for me to nurse her. Thanks to the support of the VBEs in our group and lots of practice, I […]
