I was introduced to babywearing by facebook! I was always intrigued by it before I had my little so when he came I received a Boba and cheap infantino carrier. Then I dove into the tula and lille world. I also have a Yaro RS that I LOVE. Babywearing is the best thing I’ve learned about parenting. It makes everything better!

Brandy Yntema says
I saw the Baby Bjorn’s and knew that was a good way to carry my winter baby. But I was introduced to babywearing by my friend Alexa, who wore her little one in a ring sling. She referred me to our local group; I borrowed a carrier and was hooked. I am now an educator, who teaches other caregivers how to use them!
I was introduced to babywearing by a friend and I’m so happy I went down this rabbit hole =)
My friend, Jennifer, introduced me to the basics of babywearing and sold me my first wrap at a steal of a deal. She showed me the basics of using a wrap, ring sling, buckle carrier, and Mei tai and has since become a BWI certified instructor.

This is great!! I actually found babywearing on my own, but was guided by a local babywearing group that has been so much help getting past the traditional moby’s!!
No one in particular, i was pregnant with my first and knew i wanted a baby carrier and eventually was browsing online and discovered carrier that were better for both baby and me.
I have always worn my babies. I started 17 years ago with a sling type. This was before I knew about too much on the internet. Now there are so many options!

Alex Roehl says
I introduced myself to babywearing. My first carriers were a moby wrap and an infantino buckle carrier. I’m so glad that I discovered wraps, ring slings, and other buckle carriers, because even though LO is 18 mos, I use them everyday.
I saw many discussions about wearing for new parents, and saw a few local to me wearing buckles. But after having my babe, I did further research and found my local groups! And it has been amazing ever since.
Abi F says
I don’t recall who introduced me to babywearing-it was something I wanted to do with my 1st but had crappy carriers. I wear 1-3 now with much improved carriers.
Cheryl C says
I guess I introduced myself to babywearing when I was pregnant to my oldest daughter.
I joined a babywearing group.
I can’t think of any one person who introduced me to babywearing. It was just something that I knew I wanted to do and felt natural to me.
Sandra Caballero says
I love this pretty Wisteria Lane wrap. With my first daughter I wore her for a while back in 2009. I didn’t know there were any Babywearing group locally that can help me adjust the carrier. Until I had my second daughter and wanted to babywear again. Somehow I saw a page on Facebook and found my local Babywearing group. I’m so glad I found the group and they helped me learn so much how to adjust in different carriers. It’s the best because you can find the one you love wearing your baby. Every new baby wearer should attend a local baby wearing group to try different carriers.
Jessica E. Bivens says
I was introduced by a little shop I was working at that catered to nursing mothers in Phoenix, AZ. It has since gone out of business but I will always be grateful for that first ring sling and wrap 🙂
Awesome giveaway! Thanks!
Nancy I. Schroeder says
I was inteoduced to baby wearing through Pinterest. I was so excited to be pregnant that I was on there constantly, researching everything I possibly could. I came across pins for Moby wraps and ring slings and then I saw the glorious woven wraps and my heart melted. I still don’t own one but I am constantly stalking websites with the pretty wraps and follow so many people on social media who wrap. I hope to own one soon, hopefully before baby #2’s arrival in February!
I was introduced to babywearing by a friend at my baby shower. She brought several different carriers for me to try. It was awesome and I am so glad she did!
My cousins recommended a seven slings to me. When I went online to do some research and learn how to use it, I found the whole wide world of babywearing.
So amazing you guys are doing this, I was introduced to babywearing through a friend of mine, same one who educated me, and helped me to have a natural unmedicated birth 🙂 I’ve never tried a woven though, but i’ve been wanting to, fingers crossed!
Jeremy Meninni says
My friend who was a first time mom introduced me to babywearing. She got pregnant about a year and a half before me so she really taught me a lot about the wonders of babywearing. I am forever thankful of her for that.
I think social Media introduced me to baby wearing. I started reading articles and just looking into baby wearing. And now I love it! We travel a lot, most of the time I travel alone with my munchkin. So baby wearing in an airport Is a plus for me. Makes traveling less stressful for both of us. Baby wearing is becoming a lifestyle for me.. more like an obsession Good luck to all who enter.
Heather W says
When I was pregnant I had several women tell me to get a wrap. The one that was recommended just did not work for us. About a month later I thought “there has got to be a better option.” So I started searching online and watching tutorials. After a couple more tries, we found something that worked.
I was introduced to babywearing by The Carrying on Project, I was one of their first recipients over 3 years ago, and to this day I still babywear daily with both my kids now 2&3

I was introduced to babywearing while pregnant with my first child 11 years ago. I was given a carrier by a friend at my shower. Unfortunately, the carrier was extremely uncomfortable and I didn’t know there were other options available, and therefore did not wear my first 2 children much at all. I just had a third child several years later and was introduced to the much wider world of babywearing by the babywearing group on BabyCenter. I have tried many different carriers sine and am so glad!

I was first introduced to babywearing by some of my close friends when we were stationed on Oahu, HI. I saw how amazing it made daily life with multiples, and especially breastfeeding.

And I’ve been wanting to try a Nona too ☺️
Greer Hei says
I was introduced by one of my long time girlfriends Monica! We live a similar outdoors life filled with animals and garden and just getting out and doing things. I watched her babywear and continue having a life filled with the things she loved and got to enjoy them with her baby snuggled close and learning along the way. out of all the”baby stuff we need” babywearing by far has been the best investment. I have in return helped other parents with babywearing and lent things out so they too can make the best choices for the babywearing future!
