You can also try searching "(City name) Babywearers" on FB because not all groups are BWI. None of the groups here are, but they all have educators and lending libraries. I started going when pregnant with DS and made most of my momma friends through them
Tonight's dog walk brought the day's total number of encounters with unattended off leash dogs to 5. Because scooping up my 25 lb dog as another dog rushes us is so much fun at this stage in the game.
This is the worst. We have strict leash laws in my area that no one follows. I am now strategic when I take my dog for a walk
I think a lot of it around here is people leaving their dogs out in yards with ineffective fences. The worst is that my dog used to be just incredibly chill in this situation until he got attacked by an off leash dog a couple years ago. Now he barks and cries if an off leash dog starts to rush him which is totally understandable but doesn't exactly help.
@osw see if you have a babywearing international chapter near you. They're super helpful and usually have carrier libraries so you can try out different styles before purchasing
And you can go while still pregnant so you can figure it all out before baby is here.
This! I went last week and there were other pregnants plus people with babies of all ages. They have weighted dolls you can practice with. It was really helpful and I feel pretty confident with a ring sling and wrap (basic carries).
@osw moby's or k'tans can usually be found on yard sale or swap places for super super cheap. Or if you want something that'll last longer look at woven wraps. I personally really like Ring slings for ease of use/taking baby in&out etc.
I do have a moby and hpnegirl let me borrow a ring sling (I think)
Yes, there's one in there. It's a WC, though. I prefer linen ones for the first few weeks, but I only have one of those
