If you’ve been in the babywearing community for a while, you may remember the Gypsy Mama microfleece wraps. We retired them years ago because we had them out a bit before the babywearing community was ready for them — these days, I hear great things about Calin Bleu’s microfleece wrap, if you’re looking for one to purchase.
Anyway, I’ve had one left, in a grey with sage tones (as sage, really, is more grey than green), and it’s been sitting on a shelf gathering dust. I haven’t been sure what to do with it. But as the autumn weather envelops us, I’ve been thinking that a giveaway is in order.
Here’s your challenge. The Baby Carrier Industry Alliance has asked you to share your babywearing story. Post your story either on the BCIA share page (log in as a member first) or on your own blog and post the link here in the comments section, and we’ll enter you to win a our microfleece wrap, made from soft, durable Malden Mills microfleece, sewn with love by me.
We need to spread these stories far and wide. I would love for you to post the link to your story on your Facebook, your Twitter, your social networking sites.
And, if you’re not a member of the Baby Carrier Industry Alliance already, please strongly consider joining. I speak as the founder and chairwoman of the organization, and we badly need your help.
Happy story telling! Here’s the link to our story — not interesting, really, in the brief telling, because for us, the story of babywearing is the story of mothering; it’s woven into each moment, each day, each memory in the first 3 or 4 years of child’s life. And here is my husband’s story.
Thanks for your participation! Winners will be drawn on Friday as long as we have at least 25 participants. Please spread the word!
