November Happenings

Hello friends! We hope you had a fun Halloween and are ready to take the on holiday season armed with your best parenting tool, babywearing of course!

Thank You!

First of all, we’d like to thank everyone who participated in the IBW fundraiser event. We collectively raised enough money to add a few new carriers to our lending library. Your purchase is much appreciated and we hope you are enjoying your auction prizes. We’d love to see pictures of you using your new goodies. Spam us in the Facebook chatter group!

Special thanks to all the vendors who donated to make the auction a possibility in the first place.

New Lending Library Offerings

Thanks to the fundraiser we were able to purchase 2 new Kinderpacks for the lending library. We will now be able to offer an infant size Kinderpack with plus size straps and standard size Kinderpack with standard size straps. Additionally, Bean Tree Baby were generous enough to donate a standard sized Tula to the library. Big thanks to the ladies at Bean Tree Baby. If you didn’t already know, Bean Tree Baby is CT owned and operated and offers baby carriers, cloth diapers and other baby goods online and at their storefront in Newington. In-store purchases are tax-free if you mention that you are a BWI of New Haven member.
