Review for Babywearing International of DC-MD-VA, Vienna, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I found this group when my son was 3 months old and screaming every time I tried to wear him in a carrier. I literally wept tears of joy when a friend recommended them as a place to help me wear my son comfortably. At the first meeting, they corrected my wearing "errors," and found me a carrier that fit me and my son perfectly - I was hooked! I became a member on the spot, and began going to monthly meetings, trying out a different carrier each month. Two years later, I still wear my son, and now volunteer as the librarian for one of the meetings. It's an amazing, helpful, loving group of people - I don't know what I would have done without them!

Review for Babywearing International of DC-MD-VA, Vienna, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This group saved my sanity! When my son was almost four months old, I was in tears because I wanted to wear him, but he screamed and cried any time I put him in our Ergo or Moby. At a loss, I googled Babywearing, and found that there was going to be a meeting in my neighborhood just a few days later! I took my carriers and my son with me, and became a member that very same meeting. The helpful Volunteer Babywearing Educators (VBEs) found a couple of other, different carriers that fit my body better, and I have "checked out" a different carrier from their library every month since then. Proud to say I wear my baby every day since finding them, and whenever other parents ask me about my carriers, I tell them about this group. They have definitely changed my life. Incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and kind!
