Babywearing International Inc. is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote babywearing as a universally accepted practice, with benefits for both child and caregiver, through education and support.
We are Babywearing International of the Twin Cities. Our meetings are free and open to the public, led by Volunteer Babywearing Educators (VBEs), Advanced Babywearing Educators (ABEs) and Master Babywearing Educators (MBEs) who have had their skills assessed and accredited by BWI. We also have VBEs in training and volunteer administrative support helping at our meetings. We thank all our volunteers for all their support!
Our chapter was founded in June, 2013. Our mission is to build the bond between babies and caregivers through baby carrier education and support. We currently have over 250 members and helped over 1,500 people at our meetings in 2016 find the right fit with their baby carrier. Speaking of carriers, we have over 350 carriers in our lending library!
We have regular meetings all over the Twin Cities of Minnesota. Our group’s lending library provides carriers to try on for free at meetings, and paid members can check out one or two of our carriers for up to a month at a time.
