For the past seven years, Babywearing International, Inc. has hosted International Babywearing Week. It's filled with a flurry of community outreach events both locally and online and this year was no exception. With the growth of social media, IBW has become a much anticipated week for babywearers around the world to connect with one another, invite others to experience the joys of carrying, and share awesome pictures of themselves with baby.
This year, Wild Was Mama hosted two Instagram events, a seven-day giveaway of carriers and a photo contest. While seven lucky people each won a different carrier, there could only be one photo contest winner. However, there were so many amazing pictures that came in a close second, we wanted to share a few more of our favorites:
(Day 1 mountain pose) #ergobabyyoga following @kauailife 's interpretation of mountain pose " I send roots down deep into the earth" I send my roots deep into the earth and hold on through the storms. Just like a tree, the branches may shake, dance or break,.....the trunk stays strong. Almost two years ago we uprooted and planted ourselves in the mountains of colorado. We have been through so many storms. We grew our roots and stood strong. We learned how to dance with the wind.We are still growing our roots. If you look closely you can see four children. I love these mountains. My beautiful babies are part of these beautiful mountains. The storms, they add to who we are. We learn and grow from them. We are all part of something bigger than ourselves. I send my roots deep into the earth.
