Babywearing can make mothering, and even breastfeeding, so much easier! In fact, there is even research to show that babies who are worn in a soft carrier are likely to breastfeed longer!
At the Arizona Breastfeeding Center, we teach moms and babies about babywearing every day. We feel that it is so important for the parents in our community that we've invited the experts at Babywearing International of Phoenix to show you the ins and outs of how its done at Bump to Breast Fest 2016!
We sat down with Lauren of Babywearing International of Phoenix (BWIP) to talk about the mission of BWIP, and to give us a little preview of their class at Bump to Breast Fest 2016.
Jennie: Tell me about Babywearing International of Phoenix--how does it work?
Lauren: Babywearing International of Phoenix is a non profit group dedicated to sharing the practice of babywearing through education. We have 5 free meetings each month around the valley, where our extensive library of baby carriers is available for families to try! We also love helping you use the carriers you own comfortably and safely. We hope to see you at a meeting or event soon!
Jennie: That sounds amazing! What will you be teaching at demonstrating in the "How to Wear Your Baby" class at Bump to Breast Fest 2016?
Lauren: We'll be talking and demonstrating about lots of things, including, How do you use a Moby? What's the difference between a Baby Bjorn and an Ergo? What's so special about a ring sling? How do you use a Moby? What's the difference between a Baby Bjorn and an Ergo? What's so special about a ring sling?
Jennie: What a great class and a great introduction to Babywearing for expectant and new families. We can't wait to see Babywearing International and all our babywearing mamas and babies at Bump to Breast Fest 2016.
