WHAT: NYC Dads Group highlight our #DadStories through the benefits of babywearing and bonding with our children along with Baby Bjorn for a Bronx Zoo adventure rocking their Baby Carrier One Spring Collection 2017 – a light and joyful collection of baby carriers in cotton and mesh.

Baby Bjorn #DADSTORIES Campaign: Real dads like you telling their real stories
THE NEW MASCULINITY
There’s a new masculinity in town. Modern fathers no longer accept being considered second-hand parents. They are dads. They are modern dads exploring every corner of parenting, taking just as much part in their babies’ lives as any mother around. They’re bloggers, builders, constructors, teachers, web designers. They’re doing what they want – parenting. Let’s open up for a new generation of fathers – the present ones. So, go ahead and share your #DADSTORIES during the NYC Dads Group adventure at the Bronx Zoo and beyond this spring.
This is another meet-up opportunity that you’re not going to want to miss! To celebrate their new kick-ass Spring 2017 collection of baby carriers, BABY BJORN has offered to sponsor our meet-up by offering baby carriers to dads with little ones between ages 0 (newborn) – 3 years of age.
Baby Bjorn has generously agreed to provide 25 dads with a FREE** (expectations mentioned below) BABY CARRIER ONE. If you’re up for an invigorating meet-up that involves breakfast and a Winter babywearing walk with some other cool, active, nurturing dads and their families, please join us!
