#EmbraceYourLove is all about that bundle of cuteness that you put into that carrier on our Facebook page — show us those babies! Show us who you wear! Show us what they like to do while wearing and what makes them the happiest.

#EmbraceYourDay is about how babywearing helps you every day. Please join us at our first Monday monthly meeting (10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Babies R Us at 18182 Gulf Fwy in Friendswood) for a Babywearing 101 class, where both new and veteran wearers can learn skills and talk about how babywearing can be a useful daily tool.

#EmbraceYourAdventure is a throwback to 2014’s IBW theme, “Share the Adventure.” Where have you been while babywearing that was an adventure? This activity will take place on our Facebook page — share a story or pictures of the greatest adventure you’ve been on while wearing.

#EmbraceYourWild is about getting out to see what the outdoors has to offer and how babywearing can make that possible. Please join Hike It Baby and BWIGH at 9 a.m. to walk the fitness loop outside the Houston Zoo (6200 Hermann Park Drive, Houston). Afterwards, we’ll have a special session with a zookeeper to learn about animals that “wear” their babies! (Details are posted to the event on our page; zoo admission will be required for those wanting to participate in the chat.)

#EmbraceYourSelf is about what you do for yourself. What does babywearing do for you? Join us on our Facebook page and tell us what you like, how you care for yourself, and share a photo of how babywearing is a part of that!

#EmbraceYourCommunity is an opportunity to go out and explore what your community has to offer. Please join us for a play date from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Blossoming Mama (122 Vintage Park Blvd, Houston), a local business that supports our babywearing community. Pop on over to Blossoming Mama’s Facebook page and website as there is also a 20% discount code for carriers purchased from now through the end of IBW!

#EmbraceYourOptions is about exploring all the options available for babywearing. Please stop by our table during the Baby Fair & Diaper Derby at Babies R Us (located at 380 FM 1960 W, Houston) anytime from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. for an introduction to the plethora of carriers that assist us in babywearing, check out some new ones you may not have tried, or see if a carrier you already own can be more functional with a tip or tweak! This event will be come-and-go.
Events are posted to our Facebook page; please join us in celebrating and embracing International Babywearing Week!
