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.


The Big Latch On 2018
Saturday, August 4th at 9:45 am
Anderson Mill Limited District Community Center
11500 El Salido Pkwy, Austin, TX 78750

The Global Big Latch On takes place each year at registered locations around the world, where people gather together offer peer support and latch their child on at the same time (thus The Big Latch On!). Their friends, family and community join this celebration to promote and support breastfeeding.

Volunteers from within the community host each location – That’s BWI of Greater Austin, with the support of BareMama for North Austin! In the past BWI of Greater Austin has assisted at the BabyEarth Big Latch On events so this year we decided to go for it and be the hosts. We believe in being part of a community that supports families, so for our Big Latch On event, we are hosting a community gathering. We have asked local pregnancy & parenting organizations and companies to join us for the event.

The count will begin promptly at 10:30am, so plan to arrive a little early to get registered and comfy before then. We will have a play area for the toddlers and activities for everyone! Bring your friends, family, and of course babies for a morning of activities, support, snacks, and a baby carrier super sale!

Check out what organizations will be joining us and more information on our events page.
