Photo shoot!

Have you seen all the beautiful photos on this blog and on the international babywearing conference website? You and your baby can be in some of them! We need more models to take pictures of the carriers that have been donated to us. There is no monentary compensation- but you will get a digital copy of the pictures that are taken (and they are just gorgeous).

We are having a babywearing photo shoot this Saturday March 27th at 3:00pm. We are meeting in Idaho Falls in the temple parking lot by the church building. Come and bring your friends!

Babywearing is safe!

But bag style slings, like the infantino slingrider are not! I was happy to see an article posted about it. You can read that article here at cbs news

Here is an article about bag slings that was sent to Infantino, the government and safety commisions a few years ago.

As with anything in life you need to know how to use baby carriers correctly. Ring slings and pouches can also be dangerous if you don't know how to position your baby correctly. click here for a great article on correct positioning for the safety & comfort of your newborn.

If you are new to babywearing find a friend or a local babywearing group to help you find the right carrier for you and your baby. Learn how to use it safely and correctly. If you live in Southeast Idaho come to one of our babywearing meetings. We meet monthly- In Rigby we meet every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 9:30. In Ashton the meetings are every 4th Tuesday at 9:30am. We welcome anyone and everyone. The meetings are free- plus we have a lending library so you can try out different carriers to see what suits you best. click here for directions to the Rigby meetings.

Also the international babywearing conference is coming to Rigby in June (hurray). Classes are free- register today! go to for more information.
