Review for Holistic Moms Network Inc, Caldwell, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I found my tribe through HMN. Before that, I was pregnant with my first child, newly laid off from work, and virtually friendless. I knew I wanted to lead a holistic lifestyle, especially in terms of parenting, but was having trouble connecting with other moms who wanted the same. I learned about HMN and made some of the best friends of my life.

Review for Babywearing International Inc, Syracuse, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a new mom, I was intimidated by the number of gizmos and gadgets marketed at me, but from before I had given birth, my husband and I both were committed to baby wearing. We purchased two carriers and thought "this will be sufficient". Unfortunately, the two carriers we chose were not sufficient - one was intended for newborns and the other was uncomfortable. In my search for carriers that would suit our needs, as well as likeminded moms, I found BWI. As a result, I now own way more carriers than one would necessarily *need*, but I also am able to accomplish so many more daily tasks because of them. Now I am the mom of two girls, aged 4.5 months and 19.5 months, and I have a part time job where I can bring my girls. Without babywearing, I wouldn't be able to do my job - either at work or at home. Without BWI, I probably would have given up wearing, instead of making it a key part of our parenting approach.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my daily life! Without babywearing, I have no idea how I'd get the laundry done, take two kids for a walk, or get the baby to nap.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand to more locations.

Role:  Volunteer & I am now a Volunteer Babywearing Educator for BWI. I have worn my babies while volunteering for church functions.

my daily life. I wear at least one of my girls every day.
