Every month we feature a carry or carrier to highlight at our monthly meetings and online (“BWITCCOTM” stands for Babywearing International of the Twin Cities Carry or Carrier of the Month). You can check out what we’ve done so far using the hashtag #BWITCCOTM on our Instagram @bwitc (https://www.instagram.com/bwitc) or on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/BWItwincities/).
Want to add some flair to your wrapping game? Maybe dress it up a little? We’ve got a few fancy finishes for you to try out this month (try saying “fancy finish February 10 times fast!). Volunteer babywearing educators (VBEs) will be ready to show these off to you at an upcoming BWI meeting (https://www.facebook.com/pg/BWItwincities/events/)!
Share your pics, your tips, your successes, your bloopers in our closed Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/bwitwincities/).
