Bloomington Babywearers

Babywearing is the act of carrying your baby or toddler close to you using a wrap, carrier or sling. Studies show that it can help promote bonding between you and your child, positively encourage baby's development, and support breastfeeding.

According to a study by the American Academy of Pediatrics, babywearing may also ease infant crying and help to soothe babies suffering from colic.

Bloomington Babywearers is comprised of a group of local parents with a vast knowledge and years of experience in babywearing and instructing others how to do so safely and properly. 

Due to Covid-19, in-person meetings and play dates are suspended. Message Blythe at anglepphbtown@gmail.com to field questions and connect you directly with local babywearing support via email, Facebook, FaceTime or Zoom.
