  2. I have so many things for which I can compliment this group. But for now, I’ll say how impressed I am with the welcomeness towards new members. I am now, but everyone was new at some time. When I attended the sewing event, I was so worried about being the new girl there. But I had nothing to worry about!

  3. WOW! First, thanks to Heather L. for being at the right place at the right time! 🙂 how fun! I usually attend the Mundelein meeting at Cygnus, but over the summer, I came to a meeting held at a park in Gurnee, which was super fun! I love this group: awesome support, meeting new friends, adoring one another’s little ones, playing with new mama toys, I could go on and on. But, the dedication of the leaders and members to keeping our children close, providing them with gentle, loving touch, and keeping them safe is what is the most special part of this group!

  11. I have a lot of wonderful memories of babywearing. My oldest was 2 weeks old when I attended my first meeting! I didn’t really know what babywearing was all about, and quickly understood how awesome it was. One of my favorite babywearing meeting memories (I believe it was in Mundelein at Cygnus Lactation), was shortly after my 2nd was born and the leaders helped me put baby Lennon on my front in a wrap all snuggled in tight and Aria (18 months at the time) on my back. That was so cool, amazing and cuddly and I would have never had the confidence to tandem carry or even know what tandem carrying was without the babywearing group in Chicagoland!

  15. When my son was 9 weeks old and I was recovering from having emergency surgery i was desperate to learn about BW and wrapping. I am so lucky to have found BWI!! Tabitha took her time and patience and helped me to get my son wrapped and fast asleep. However, Karaleigh saw that I was nervous with all the material and she introduced me to a MT and my life forever changed. From that day on both my husband and I wear our son all the time. Thank you ladies for taking the time for my family, it is truly appreciated!

  24. I love this group! I only had a moby with my 2nd, and no support group, so I gave up quickly, but this time around (with the support AND lending library) it is going great and I’m hooked on BW! (and building a small stash) And even better is the ability to share this knowledge with other new moms, to help them have their hands free for other things while taking care of their babies. And if I win this, I’m going to pass it on to a teen new mom – I’ve been there and know she can use all the help she can get, and may be more likely to use something that she doesn’t have to learn how to tie.

  25. Even though I have not been able to attend many meetings, I attended a Winnemac Park meetup in the late spring that Maria led. It was great because it helped me get some better ideas about using my ring sling for my preschooler.

    I joined the group on Facebook even though we’re at the end of our babywearing days. I’m giving away my last carriers to the group to help other moms grow their interest in babywearing. Even though my daughter is 3, babywearing has been helpful when we refuse to nap and when we aren’t feeling that great. I’m actually considering hoarding my last WCRS to help her feel better when she is 16 and just got dumped by a guy!

    I’ve learned a lot of babywearing information from the group. Even though I don’t really wear wraps, I’ve been able to pass on information about them to other moms because of the information given by other helpful moms in the group. My own experiences with SSCs, MTs, and RSs has made me able to pass on my own unique knowledge, as well as gather more information from other moms so that I can temper my own fantastic experiences or crappy experiences and see the wonders or faults of the different carriers.

    Thanks for this giveaway guys! It’s a great idea, and so helpful for other moms! I am looking at giving the Ergo to one of my friends who is having a baby in the spring with two other little ones underfoot!

I actually have an Ergo on loan from that last meeting and it was great to put my almost 2 year old on my back when we were helping my sister move into her new apartment – 3rd floor, no elevator. He definitely could have done the stairs but being on my back was a lot quicker going down.

  39. I don’t even know where to start with how much this group has helped me. The most important thing is the way the group helped me to get past my postpartum depression. Between learning how to wear my infant and just having the community of awesome people here, it truly saved my sanity. I will forever be grateful for that! As I am about to add a second child to my family, I am glad I already know how to wear my children because I’m certain that between the newborn and the toddler, I will be wearing someone all the time. As to which meeting(s) I’ve attended, well, I don’t think there is a location I haven’t attended in the past. When my son was small, he really only slept when being worn or when riding in the car, so we drove to a lot of BWI meetings all over Chicagoland.

  69. At one of the des plaines meetings this summer Heather Magrow said something that really resonated with me, “you are the only carrier your baby needs.” As a mom who isn’t always able to give my baby the neatest and coolest gear, it was really reassuring to hear. Yes, there are wraps that cost thousands of dollars and ringslings that you can get for free, but it doesn’t matter what you put your baby in, the sling doesn’t hold them, YOU do. Maybe that’s why the moms in this group will literally give you the kinderpack off their back if you want to try it. In fact, I think that’s what makes our chapter of BWI so amazing– a generosity of spirit.
    I am constantly overwhelmed by how a group of women who barely know each other are willing to share and discuss and problem solve. when my son was three weeks old and i posted about having trouble with my moby several women who had never even met me offered to come over and help. when i was overwhelmed by mei tai choices people posted pictures and took measurements of their own so that we could figure out the difference. it continually amazes me. any time i want to try any carrier in our library our amazing leaders put their heads together and figure out how to get it to me. I’ve never seen anyone snubbed for anything here. everyone comes as they are and puts their experience on the table and the result is not only a group of moms who carry their babies, but a group of moms who carry each other.

Now with 2 preschoolers and 2 infants bw is not only a love, a way I can stay close with my girls and still meet the needs of my preschoolers and family, its a necessity for me. I can only imagine how much harder my days would be without bw’ing. I’m thankful for Rebecca’s tips with twin bw’ing and Heather’s patience and guidance with a lot of newbie questions.

  77. This group helped me get comfortable with our second in the ring sling as a newborn. Because of your help, I can nurse him & still chase the 2 year old at the same time! Motivated by photos others post on the FB page, I’ve tandem worn my 2 month & 2 year olds to get dinner on the table. I was also able to say “yes!” when the 2 year old wanted me to rake leaves with him & baby needed to nurse. Thanks!
