NYC Dads Group had such a blast participating last year when nearly twenty active dads paraded around the Metropolitan Museum of Art (pictured above) with our little ones. The theme, “Get Carried Away”, means we’re planning something cool to raise awareness for this year as well: NYC Dads Group will be celebrating International Babywearing Week (a little late) on Tuesday, October 22 at 11am with a dozen dads group members of our DAD-PACK hiking on the unique, picturesque, and elevated High Line Park sporting our babies in our Britax Baby Carriers. Additionally, we’ll be distributing baby carriers to all of the dads-to-be participants in our new dad bootcamp workshop next week in an effort to promote babywearing as a universally accepted practice. A special thanks to our sponsor, Britax, for supporting active fathers and supplying us with amazing gear for the events.
International Babywearing Week (Oct 7 – 13, 2013) is a focused opportunity to celebrate, promote, and advocate the many benefits of Babywearing. Infants thrive on touch so wearing your baby is an important way to meet this need. There are so many other advantages and benefits like bonding with your baby, less crying (carried babies cry less), building confident parents, comfort, and convenience so you have both hands free. Babywearing International Inc. is proud to lead babywearers around the globe who will be gathering during the week to educate about, practice, and celebrate the varied options available today for safe babywearing. We’re excited about the opportunity to celebrate such an important facet of caregiving! Hopefully, you will cheer us on or join our parade on Tuesday, October 22 on The High Line. See you there!
