Welcome

Babywearing International of Greater Austin works to make a positive difference in the lives of children and their caregivers by sharing the age old practice of babywearing. Our meetings provide attendees the opportunity to try many carriers, receive expert instruction, and get connected with other caregivers in our supportive and inclusive community.

2018 Goals
  • Stabilize Meetings – we have found new summer meeting locations!
    • Main Meeting – held at The For the City Center, we are glad it has such great accessibility for our members!
    • Secondary education-only meetings – These education-only meetings will rotate at libraries in North and South Austin. The lending library will not be available at the education-only meetings, however we will accept your returns.
  • Build Volunteer Base – we need volunteer Educators and Administrators to grow our meetings and organization
    • Both in-person volunteers at meetings and behind the scenes volunteers for communications and promotions are needed. We are incredibly grateful for our amazing volunteers who give their time and energy. Complete this Volunteer Interest form and Phaedra Koonz will be in contact with you to tell you more about volunteering with us.
  • Strengthen Community – we will be hosting multiple playdates or social events each month so everyone can gather together, get to know each other, and have some fun outside of meetings
  • Communication – we recently signed up for Remind.com
    • Remind sends a text to your phone to notify you of upcoming meetings, playdates, and events. We promise to only send two separate messages per event.
    • For your convenience, we created two groups in Remind – a group for our meetings and a group for playdates
      • To sign up for the meetings group, text @bwiaustin to the number 81010
      • To sign up for playdates, text @bwiplay to 81010
      • To sign up for both groups, you will need to send two separate texts
